Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12X and Xiaomi 12 Pro series

The end of the year is usually a fairly quiet time in the tech industry. This time it is a little different, because the Xiaomi 12 series smartphones have arrived to give something to talk about.

Xiaomi 12 series, the best Xiaomi phones in 2022?

We can't deny it, these new models are impressive on paper. Not only because of the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 processor manufactured in a 4 nm technological process, but because of its design and speed.

In addition, the manufacturer has paid a lot of attention to screens, cameras and batteries , that is, to those elements that are the most important for the vast majority of users .

What are the features and functions of the new Xiaomi 12 series?

Visually, it is quite enjoyable and at the same time without significant differences between the individual models. First of all, they differ in size, although the same Corning Gorilla Glass Victus glass is slightly curved on the side edges with fingerprint readers.

Mainly (among the 3 different models) the green color variant finished with vegan leather stands out for its originality . Unfortunately, some will be disappointed that Xiaomi still does not officially support the waterproof certificate, which in its case remains reserved for the exclusive use of Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra .

It seems that this series is aimed at those looking for an efficient smartphone, without being put off by the dimensions. In fact, during the presentation, it was compared to the iPhone 13 , which will be a bit narrower.

Likewise, this series has Super AMOLED and OLED screens depending on the model between 6.28 inches at 6.73 ″, and a refresh rate of 120 Hz for all 3.

  • It also supports HDR10 + and Dolby Vision .

Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12X and Xiaomi 12 Pro series What about cameras?

For its part, the main camera is triple, based mainly on the Sony IMX766 50 Mpix sensor or the IMX707 with OIS , depending on the model. In addition, users of the normal and 12X model will receive 13 Mpx ultra- wide angle lenses and 5 Mpx telemacro , while the 12 Pro version will have 50Mpx wide-angle and Macro .

  • As we can see, Xiaomi decided to invest especially in the development of this sector, we leave you a comparative table between both models.

We also talk about a cheaper version: Xiaomi 12 X

xiaomi mi 12 pro

The Xiaomi 12X has also been presented, which turns out to be a smartphone very similar to the Xiaomi 12 in features.

The differences in the Xiaomi 12X as you can see in the table above, are the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor and the battery that has the same capacity, but does not support wireless charging or reverse charging . The rest of the specifications is the same as the Xiaomi 12.

If you liked the design made by the manufacturer, the good news is that it was also intact in the case of the Xiaomi 12X. And if someone doesn't care about wireless battery charging, it may be a more tempting proposition to choose this model for its lower price .
