Xiaomi 12 is the next flagship smartphone series from the company. Xiaomi’s founder and CEO, Lei Jun, took to Twitter to confirm that the all-new Xiaomi 12 series will be the world’s first smartphone powered by the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform. The Xiaomi 12 lineup is expected to bring multiple smartphones, including Xiaomi 12 Pro. We have been following Xiaomi 12 leaks for a while now, but there were barely any Xiaomi 12 Pro leaks until now.
In a fresh leak screen protector of the alleged Xiaomi 12 Pro has been revealed. The screen protector appears to have a smaller footprint than the Xiaomi Mi 11. So it is assumed that the upcoming Xiaomi 12 Pro will feature a smaller display. The device may feature a curved panel and a relatively smaller punch-hole camera on the front. While that was a brief introduction to the Xiaomi 12 Pro, we have more details to share with you, so let’s get started.
Xiaomi 12 Pro: Specs and features
–The Xiaomi 12 Pro is likely to be one of the first phones to launch with the newly launched Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. In a tweet, the company’s Founder and CEO, Sky Li, said that the Xiaomi 12 series is launching soon. Along with that, Xiaomi released a video teaser on its official Twitter handle. The video says that mass production of the Xiaomi 12 series has already begun, and it is coming soon.
–In a different report, Gizmochina got hold of a screen protector of the alleged Xiaomi 12 Pro. The screen protector was placed aside from the Mi 11, and it was found out that the smartphone may have a smaller screen size. The Xiaomi Mi 11 is a reasonably big device at 6.81-inches, so it is supposed that Xiaomi 12 may come in a slightly handy size at 6.67-inches.
–The screen protector has curved edges, so it seems as if Xiaomi will carry the curved edge on the Xiaomi 12 Pro as well. It has a centred punch-hole camera on the front, unlike the Mi 11. Plus, the punch-hole is reported to be a tad bit smaller.
–The smartphone will certainly be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor is Qualcomm’s first chipset based on a 4nm manufacturing process. Qualcomm claims up to 20 per cent faster CPU performance and 30 per cent increased efficiency than the Snapdragon 888 chipset. The chipset relies on a three cluster design, in which the main core is clocked at 3.0 GHz. Among the other seven cores, three performance cores run at 2.5 GHz and the remaining efficiency cores are clocked at 1.8GHz.
–Other details of the Xiaomi 12 Pro are currently unavailable, but we do know about Xiaomi 12. As per which, Xiaomi 12 could feature a curved OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The display may have a centred punch-hole camera on the front. Reports suggest that Xiaomi may use an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor for authentication.
–In another leak, it has been revealed that Xiaomi 12 may feature a triple camera on the rear. The leak adds that the camera’s setup is placed at the top left corner of the phone. Besides this, Xiaomi 12 is supposed to feature an AG glass rear panel.
–The Xiaomi 11 was equipped with a 108-megapixel camera system. So it is now to be seen what changes Xiaomi makes to improve the camera system on its upcoming flagship. If we go by the leaks, Xiaomi 12 will get a 50-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL GN5 primary camera. Besides this, Xiaomi 12 is said to offer 100W charging.
Xiaomi 12 Pro launch
The Xiaomi 12 Pro is the upcoming flagship device from the brand. While the launch date is yet to be confirmed, Xiaomi, in a recent tweet, said that the Xiaomi 12 series is in the works and will launch soon. So we can expect the launch to take place late in December or early in 2022.
Xiaomi 12 Pro India price (expected)
At present, there’s no word about the pricing of the Xiaomi 12 Pro. But, looking at Xiaomi’s smartphone lineup, we can guess that the Xiaomi 12 Pro will sit above the Xiaomi 12 regular phone. Thus, we can expect more premium pricing. Xiaomi’s current flagship Mi 11 Ultra was launched earlier this year in India at 69,999. Keeping that in mind, we can expect the Xiaomi 12 Pro to be priced at around Rs 75,000.
