Xiaomi has a big event coming where the company will officially release the Xiaomi 12 series. This series will have three models including the regular Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro, and Xiaomi 12 Ultra. The company is taking advantage of the 11.11 Chinese sales and there is a good price cut for the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. The reduction of the price of the MIX 4 is an indication that a new flagship is coming. From what we already know, the Xiaomi 12 series will arrive with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 flagship processor. There is also official information that the first batch of Snapdragon 898 smartphones will arrive in mid-December.
Xiaomi is one of the manufacturers with the highest possibility of debuting this processor. However, the latest information from popular Weibo leakster @DCS reveals the release schedule of these smartphones. According to him, looking at the mass production schedule from October to the end of the year, Xiaomi will stagger the release like last year. Just like with the Xiaomi Mi 11 series, the company may release the Xiaomi 12 this year. Then, the Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12 Ultra will arrive around March next year.
Furthermore, the company will also launch a sub-flagship product that will use the Snapdragon 870 SoC. This device will be official before November 11 which is the main event of the Chinese 11.11 sales.
Xiaomi 12 speculations
The Xiaomi 12 device will come with an LTPO adaptive refresh rate screen. This feature will realize an adaptive refresh rate adjustment function between 1 – 120Hz. This feature will also bring an automatic adjustment of the display. This means that when a user activates a high-demanding game, the refresh rate of the display automatically sets to 120Hz. However, when the user is on a social app, it reduces the refresh rate significantly. This will ultimately help in the power consumption of the device. This smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC.
Under the hood, the Xiaomi 12 series will have a large capacity battery. This series is expected to come with a battery capacity of about 5000 mAh. The wireless charging will be only 50W because of the regulations in China. In addition, the charging speed of this smartphone will break through the previous record of the 120W charging. The large battery will get a full charge within 20 minutes and this will be a new record.
In terms of ID design, the Xiaomi 12 series flagship model will also adopt an appearance scheme similar to that of Xiaomi Civi. The Xiaomi 12 series will use a ceramic back shell which is very attractive. In the camera department, this upcoming digital series from Xiaomi will use a 50MP main camera. However, there are reports that this 50MP main camera will adopt an ultra-large bottom solution, supporting 1920fps super slow motion. This smartphone will also come with a 50MP high-quality ultra-wide-angle lens. The periscope telephoto is also a 50MP high-quality lens. The main camera is expected to support OIS optical image stabilization.
