Xiaomi 12 series is slated to debut in China on December 28. As the launch date approaches, the manufacturer is teasing more of its specifications in order to create excitement among customers – a common tendency seen with most smartphone releases.
As we wait for additional information from Xiaomi, a Chinese leakster on Weibo has shared an official-looking Xiaomi 12 poster that includes all of the phone’s price and specifications.
Xiaomi 12 is marketed as a small flagship phone. It sports a 6.28-inch AMOLED screen with 1080 x 2400 pixels FullHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision support, according to the leaked poster.
The panel is Display Mate A+ certified for eye safety and offers 10-bit colors and 16000-level brightness.
The Xiaomi 12 is believed to include a 50 MP primary rear camera with a 1/1.28″ sensor, 1.22um pixel size (2.44um when binned), f/1.9 aperture, and optical image stabilization (OIS). A 123-degree 13 MP ultra-wide and a 3x zoom snapper with OIS are also included.
The device has UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 RAM, and it supports Wi-Fi 6, NFC, Bluetooth v5.2, 5G, a USB Type-C port, as well as NSA and SA 5G for connectivity. The phone has Dolby Atomos, high-resolution audio, and an in-display sensor for fingerprint.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset has previously been announced for the Xiaomi 12. The SoC can support up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 flash storage.
The Xiaomi 12 is 180 grammes, runs MIUI 13 based on Android 12, and has a 4,500mAh battery and supports 67W fast wired charging as well as 30W wireless charging. Dolby Atmos is supported by the stereo speakers.
The base model, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, is expected to cost CNY 3,699 ($580 / €512 / ₹43,700 at current exchange rates), while increasing the storage to 256GB would cost CNY 3,999 ($627, €554, ₹47,300). CNY 4,399 ($690 / €609 / ₹52,000) will get you the top-of-the-line model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
Except for the cost and camera features, the rest of the specifications are true, according to the source. The poster does not appear to be authentic.
As a result, we recommend that you take these facts with a grain of salt. Xiaomi will shortly provide the official details.
