Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro, and Xiaomi 12X Flagship Phones Launched

Xiaomi has launched its Xiaomi 12 series including Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro, and Xiaomi 12X. This is the most awaited flagship series from Xiaomi and we were hoping it will be launched earlier in 2022.

Xiaomi’s new Mi 11, with its 6.8-inch display, is surprisingly small compared to what they used to design. After years of large phones, this year it seems like they’re heading back to more compact devices for their lineup. Xiaomi unveiled their new phone, the Xiaomi 12 today at the launch event. The company also talked about how comfortable it feels to hold. A large portion of the presentation was devoted to this fact.

Xiaomi 12 Specifications

The device with its 6.28-inch AMOLED display is, after all, much smaller than most of the other Android flagships out there whose screen size has lately stabilized at around 6.7-inches. The Xiaomi 12 has one of the most intricately curved displays you’ll find on a smartphone. Together with the new ergonomic design, it measures just 152.7 x 69.9 x 8.16 mm – that’s 18% thinner than your average flagship phone.

The screen on the Mi 12 goes down to 1080p as compared to Mi 11 which has 2k, but this is ok because of the size. The FHD+ resolution is less than that on Xiaomi’s last flagship.

Xiaomi 12X

The Xiaomi 12X is a good, affordable alternative to other Xiaomi devices that offer a similar experience. Studying the differences between two devices can be challenging, but when they are identical, it is possible to illuminate them in certain areas.

There are a couple of slight differences from the flagship, such as the fact that it is powered by the Snapdragon 870 chip and does not have wireless connectivity or a reverse charging feature, and doesn’t have the CyberFocus technology found on its more expensive siblings. Available color options are blue, black, and purple and the price starts at CNY 3,199 ($502).
