Hot on rumours, the launch of Xiaomi 12 series is expected to take place in the coming weeks. While most of the reports online have reaffirmed that the flagship phones by Xiaomi will debut this month, a specific date has not been announced by the company as of now. A new leak now speculates on this launch date, giving us a more specific timeline for the Xiaomi 12 series.

It seems like Xiaomi will debut the Xiaomi 12 series towards the end of this month. A leak by noted tipster Digital Chat Station mentions this launch date as December 28. Sourcing the data from a screenshot of an internal document of the company, the tipster even confirmed the launch of three smartphones by sharing the codenames L3A, L3, and L2. The codenames are expected to denote Xiaomi 12X, Xiaomi 12, and Xiaomi 12 Pro, respectively.

For those unaware, Xiaomi is anticipated to hold a major launch event this month, in which it might reveal its new flagship phones under the Xiaomi 12 series. The vanilla model among these, that is the Xiaomi 12, has been confirmed to come with Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. So, it is likely that we will see the chipset on Xiaomi 12 Pro as well, though the same cannot be said for the Xiaomi 12X, which is rumoured to come with a more modest Snapdragon 870.

Other than this, we know that the phones will feature Xiaomi’s own MIUI 13 operating system out-of-the-box. At an earlier occasion, Digital Chat Station had shared that the Xiaomi 12 and the Xiaomi 12X will both come with curved displays, a step up from the preceding Mi 11 series.

Courtesy of the same tipster, we even have a hint on the optics to be included on Xiaomi 12. It is speculated that the Xiaomi 12 may come with a 50-megapixel camera in a triple-lens setup. In an image seen in an earlier leak, two nearly identical lenses can be seen placed vertically on the Xiaomi 12, while a third lens can be seen situated on the right of these two sensors. Below the third lens will be two LED flashes. It is expected that the three lenses will be ultra-wide angle, periscope and a telephoto lens.

We also know that the Xiaomi 12 will come with 100W fast charging support, as well as a selfie camera housed under the display. Simultaneously, the company may increase the area of operation of the fingerprint sensor placed under the display too.

Note that all of these are mere speculations at this point and other than the latest Qualcomm processor being featured on the Xiaomi 12, we know nothing for sure about the smartphone. So you can expect slight deviations from the above-mentioned features of the Xiaomi 12 series upon its launch.
