This variation might take a while to take impact in all areas.”

What are the specs for the Xiaomi 12?

Now that Xiaomi has introduced just a few of the telephones within the collection we now have concrete specs for them – plus some leaks and rumours that time to 12 Extremely specs. We’ve damaged it down by mannequin:

Xiaomi 12

Essentially the most notable factor in regards to the Xiaomi 12 is that it’s smaller than any flagship within the collection earlier than, because of a transfer to a comparatively petite 6.28in show, although the Professional is bigger, if you happen to desire that type of factor.

Due to the small measurement it weighs simply 180g, and you may get it in black, blue, or pink – plus an additional inexperienced vegan leather-based choice that’s unique to China.

The compact display remains to be an AMOLED panel, with 120Hz refresh charge and assist for an in-display fingerprint scanner, plus Gorilla Glass Victus on prime to push back scratches.

As anticipated, contained in the telephone you’ll discover the brand-new
Qualcomm Snapdragon Eight Gen 1 chipset, paired in China with both Eight or 12GB of RAM, and 128 or 256GB storage. Within the UK, each storage SKUs are solely out there with 8GB RAM.

The battery is 4500mAh regardless of the compact measurement of the telephone, and it helps 67W wired quick charging, 50W wi-fi charging, and 10W reverse wi-fi.

Lastly, the all-important digicam. The primary lens is a 50Mp Sony IMX766 – a 1/1.56in sensor with 2.0μm giant pixels and OIS – decrease decision than final yr’s primary digicam, although it might but be able to superior outcomes. Alongside it, you’ll discover a 13Mp ultrawide and a 50mm-equivalent 5Mp telemacro digicam – each fairly just like what we noticed on the Mi 11.

As with all telephones within the collection, the Xiaomi 12 launches with Android 12 and MIUI 13 put in.

Listed below are the total Xiaomi 12 specs:

In earlier years the Professional model of Xiaomi’s flagships hasn’t differed an excessive amount of from the common mannequin, however this yr that’s modified.

The massive distinction in fact is the dimensions. The 12 Professional makes use of a 6.73in show – a lot bigger than the common 12 – which additionally runs at the next decision and makes use of LTPO tech to supply a extra dynamic refresh charge.

The design is essentially the identical apart from the dimensions disparity, and the core specs are comparable too.

There’s a barely greater battery (4600mAh) however charging is improved extra, with 120W wired speeds. The wi-fi tech is identical although.

Apart from the show, the largest adjustments are within the digicam. Whereas the principle digicam can also be 50Mp, it makes use of the bigger and extra superior Sony IMX707 sensor, so ought to get higher outcomes. The opposite two lenses are much more improved: there’s an ultrawide and a 2x zoom telephoto, each of which additionally use 50Mp sensors.

Xiaomi 12X

The 12X is a brand new mannequin by way of identify, although it’s largely a substitute for the standard ‘Lite’ mannequin. It’s the identical measurement because the common 12, and is very shut in specs. 

The primary distinction is that it drops the Eight Gen 1 for the much less highly effective Snapdragon 870 – which is actually a two-year-old chip. It additionally lacks wi-fi charging.

leaker Chun has additionally claimed Xiaomi is engaged on a 12X Professional, to be powered by the Snapdragon Eight Gen 1, however we all know nothing else about this mannequin but.

We haven’t had too many stable leaks in regards to the Xiaomi 12 Extremely, which remains to be anticipated to launch, however later than the opposite fashions – although anticipate it to at the very least match the 12 Professional on core specs.

Going by early leaks, the design might be wild. Let’s begin with the primary leaked pictures, which present a digicam module that’s… uncommon.

Shared on Weibo by leaker Digital Chat Station, these seem like official renders produced both by Xiaomi or by a third-party case producer. If the large round digicam module appears arduous to imagine, then don’t fear – we now have loads of proof it exists. It was first hinted at on this picture of an early case design:

Final yr’s Mi 11 Extremely had a weird digicam design – an enormous rectangular module with house for a small show. That is completely totally different, with no proof of a display however as a substitute cut-outs for eight totally different sensors.

Primarily the identical design was then seen in an aluminium dummy unit. TenTechReview has extra images of the chunky unit, although doesn’t go into a lot element as to the place it’s come from. The massive round digicam is right here once more although and proven to protrude extensively from the physique.

Leaker OnLeaks tried to make sense of the design in renders produced in partnership with Zouton, predicting 4 primary digicam lenses together with a number of different sensors. 

Be aware the inclusion of a Leica emblem. Xiaomi has fashioned a partnership with digicam firm Leica – the corporate which previously labored with Huawei on its imaging techniques. It’s primarily a on condition that the Leica emblem will seem in some kind, and that the corporate may have contributed to the telephone’s pictures.

What we don’t know is that if the Leica identify will merely seem subsequent to the digicam, or if the precise crimson emblem will probably be used. The corporate is strict with its emblem, which by no means truly appeared on any of the Huawei telephones with Leica cameras, although was used on Leica’s personal Leitz 1 telephone. Digital Chat Station has speculated that it might seem on the 12 Extremely, however doesn’t sound sure.

As for what the telephone will probably be fabricated from,
one report out of China predicts that the telephone will are available in glass, ceramic, and vegan leather-based editions. The ceramic fashions will supposedly be in black or white, whereas the glass model may have a variety of colors, and the vegan leather-based’s hue stays unknown.
Digital Chat Station says he’s seen the telephone in black leather-based and white ceramic fashions, which matches that report.

The one factor we all know mainly for certain in regards to the 12 Extremely is that it’s going to use the
Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, with Xiaomi’s founder and CEO
confirming on Twitter that its “subsequent flagship telephone” will use the not too long ago introduced chip.

That can imply we are able to anticipate not solely improved CPU and GPU efficiency in comparison with the 12 and 12 Professional, however probably additionally higher battery life, because of Qualcomm’s promise of 15% energy financial savings on the brand new chip.

Leaker Yogesh Brar says the chip will probably be paired with 8/12GB of RAM and 256/512GB of storage.

As for the show, a 6.7in 120Hz LTPO AMOLED can also be possible, and Digital Chat Station reviews that this can are available in a 2K decision.

Let’s dive deeper into these potential digicam specs. Chinese language tech web site MyDrivers reviews that the 12 Extremely may include the world’s first 200Mp primary digicam, which might be a leap up from the 50Mp shooter within the Mi 11 Extremely. We’ve already seen comparable rumours for the Samsung S22 Extremely, though in the long run the Korean firm determined to not use the sensor on its newest units, sticking to 108Mp as a substitute.

If that’s the case, then it leaves the door open for Xiaomi to steal in and declare the 200Mp crown – although it could nearly actually accomplish that with Samsung {hardware}, sarcastically sufficient. Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1 is up to now the one 200Mp sensor in the marketplace, and since Xiaomi has a historical past of utilizing high-end digicam {hardware} from the Korean firm that is nearly actually what we’ll see within the 12 Extremely.

In fact, bigger quantities of pixels don’t essentially equate to raised pictures, however this sensor has just a few tips up its sleeve. It might probably shoot 200Mp pictures with 0.64μm pixels, or use quad-pixel binning to supply 50Mp pictures with 1.28μm pixels – which can also be the way it achieves 8K video. Most impressively, in low gentle it makes use of 16-in-1 pixel binning know-how to shoot at 12.5Mp with giant 2.56μm pixels, theoretically getting the identical advantages as a lot bigger sensors.

Different potential digicam options from the sensor embrace a Good ISO mode that mixes high and low ISO photographs into one, staggered HDR, multisampling, and ‘Double Tremendous PD’ autofocus. You could find out extra about all of these on this brief intro video from Samsung:

Digital Chat Station has added extra digicam particulars on Chinese language social media web site Weibo. He
repeated the 200Mp declare in regard to the 12 Extremely, however
later added that Xiaomi is testing a 10x optical zoom periscope lens, presumably for that telephone, however that it’s nonetheless contemplating a extra “sensible” 5x zoom choice.

To not dampen hopes, however rival leaker Ice Universe has forged some doubt on expectations of a 200Mp shooter. He
tweeted that Motorola would be the first to launch a 200Mp telephone digicam, with Xiaomi set to observe “within the second half of [2022].” That’s a bit later than we’d anticipate to see the 12 Extremely, so appears to rule out this telephone utilizing the tech.

Digital Chat Station additionally appears to have misplaced confidence within the 200Mp declare, having since reported that the 12 Extremely will use a 50Mp primary digicam – a giant distinction from 200Mp. He says will probably be paired with 48Mp “ultra-wide-angle” and “super-telephoto periscope” lenses – primarily the similar digicam setup because the Mi 11 Extremely, although there could also be subtler {hardware} tweaks beneath the floor. He’s since added that the telephone will use an unknown Sony IMX8XX sensor, implying that this is perhaps new Sony digicam {hardware} making a debut right here.

The fourth rear lens is reportedly merely a ToF sensor for depth detection, whereas the selfie digicam might be a 20Mp shooter.

The Extremely can also be set to impress on battery. MyDrivers claims will probably be the primary mass manufacturing telephone to function Xiaomi’s 200W wired HyperCharge tech, able to absolutely charging a 4000mAh battery in simply eight minutes – although we anticipate the Extremely’s cell to be bigger than that.

Digital Chat Station disagrees although, as a substitute reporting that we’ll see a 4860mAh battery with 120W wired charging and 50W wi-fi – so the identical charging speeds because the 12 Professional, however with a barely bigger battery.

In the meantime Brar is much more pessimistic, predicting a 4800mAh with comparatively sluggish 67W wired charging and 50W wi-fi.

It’s price noting that there was additionally some hypothesis that there could be a Xiaomi 12 Extremely Enhanced Version, an much more further model of the top-tier mannequin. This was based mostly on
code identify leaks suggesting that the Extremely is codenamed ‘loki’ with a separate system codenamed ‘thor’. These fashions have since been
confirmed to be upcoming Xiaomi Combine collection telephones although, so the Extremely Enhanced is now not anticipated.

Xiaomi 12 Mini

Forward of the announcement of the Xiaomi 12X, it had been tipped to be smaller than the common 12, and function a mini mannequin.

Curiously, within the wake of the announcement these rumours have continued, with hypothesis that there will probably be an precise Xiaomi 12 Mini a while quickly. We actually have a render of a potential design, shared on Twitter by

Alternatively, the identical leaker has beforehand shared a totally different design for a similar alleged telephone:

Spec rumours are skinny, however level to a sub-6in AMOLED show and the identical Snapdragon 870 chipset used within the 12X.

Given the 2 conflicting designs (neither of that are a detailed match to the remainder of the 12 collection) and the truth that there have been few concrete spec leaks, we’d take all this with a pinch of salt for now.

Xiaomi 12 Lite

The 12 Lite is yet one more variant within the collection that leakers have pointed to.

This leak got here first from
XiaomiUI, together with a render of the telephone’s potential design.

It’s truly presupposed to be bigger than the Xiaomi 12, with a 6.55in OLED panel, and a Snapdragon 7-series chipset – possible the Snapdragon 778G, going by a separate
Geekbench itemizing for the telephone, which additionally reveals 8GB of RAM. The triple digicam is allegedly led by a 64Mp primary lens utilizing the Samsung ISOCELL GW3 sensor, with an ultrawide and macro too – none with OIS.

Leaked pictures of the telephone appeared on Weibo – since deleted, however captured by
GSMArena. They present a design that matches the render above, besides with a flat show relatively than curved, and with a plastic body to the telephone. Apparently, the rear digicam right here is 108Mp, in distinction to the 64Mp sensor reported within the different leaks.

Leaker Yogesh Brar has echoed many of those specs, including in just a few extra key particulars, together with a 4500mAh battery with 67W charging.

Xiaomi 12S and 12S Professional

Sure, there are by some means but extra Xiaomi 12 telephones allegedly on the way in which. The 12S fashions have been first rumoured within the wake of the announcement of Xiaomi’s partnership with digicam firm Leica, and a few leakers imagine these two telephones would be the first to bear the Leica emblem, probably launching in July.

Little else is thought in regards to the two telephones, however one picture has leaked displaying a design that’s just like the remainder of the Xiaomi 12 collection, however with Leica branding throughout the digicam. 

It’s additionally reported that these could be the telephones that debut the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, forward of the later launch of the 12 Extremely. That’s corroborated by a Geekbench itemizing which options the 8+ Gen 1, together with a formidable 12GB of RAM. Hearsay additionally factors to nippy 67W charging.

One 12S telephone has additionally obtained 3C certification, however this didn’t reveal another specs.
