Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro, 12x
Xiaomi will announce the global rollout of its 12 series flagships next week, March 15. You may have already seen what the phone looks like, more or less, the global version will only have minor cosmetic changes as seen in the leaked renders (for example the label on the 5G back).
Here’s another look at the pictures, this time without watermarks, courtesy of SnoopyTech. Lexter also has pricing information for the Xiaomi 12 series as well as the Redmi Note 11 Pro + 5G for Europe. It was last launched in India today and we hadn’t heard of it coming to Europe either.
Let’s start with Xiaomi 12 Pro. According to Snoopy, depending on the configuration of the memory, it will cost 1,100-1,200 euros. The Mi 11 Pro left Europe last year, so we can’t directly compare the price, but the new Pro is expensive.
Xiaomi 12 is more reasonable with a price of € 850-900, but it’s still € 100 more than the cost of last year’s Mi 11 for the same memory configuration.
If that sounds too expensive, the Xiaomi 12X is almost the same phone with the Snapdragon 870 instead of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. This is a difference between the two generations in performance, but at the same time a lot of money has been saved – 12X will reportedly cost. 650-700.
It assumes that the leaked prices are accurate, but they appear to be in line with last week’s price leak.
As far as the Redmi Note 11 Pro + 5G is concerned, it will be even cheaper with a price in the range of 60 460-500. We have the prices of different memory configurations in the table below.
|8/128 GB||12/128 GB||8/256 GB||12/256 GB|
|Xiaomi 12 Pro||–||–||€1,100||–||€1,200|
|Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G||€460||–||–||€500||–|
We have received several rumors concerning the upcoming Xiaomi 12 series that features three new devices. We had already received information suggesting that these new devices would feature a killer camera, but the latest leaks show us what could be the alleged camera design of these new phones.
If you thought camera designs were getting crazy, wait until you check out the alleged design of the upcoming Xiaomi 12 series. The guys over at GizChina seem to have put their hands on what seem to be case covers for the Xiaomi 12, the Xiaomi 12 Pro, and the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. According to these images, we can believe that the vanilla variant will arrive with three camera sensors and an LED flash. It is believed that the larger camera sensor may be a 50MP primary shooter that may be used together with a 50MP ultrawide and a 50MP telephoto sensor.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro looks to have a similar camera design as the vanilla variant, so maybe we could get a similar configuration. However, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra may be scratching the term overkill. It has a massive circular camera bump with a total of eight cutouts, meaning that we will most likely see more than three cameras in this configuration. Still, the center cutout seems to be the same size as the main camera in the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro, so we could also get a 50MP primary shooter here.
Some rumors have mentioned the possibility of seeing a 200MP camera in the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, so we will have to wait and see what happens. Previous information also claims that Xiaomi may launch the new 12 series with curved displays, and it seems that it may launch sometime before the year comes to an end. But as always, remember to take rumors with some salt. We will keep you posted.
