The Xiaomi 12 and pro is about to go global, with an international launch planned for March 15, and it won’t simply be the Xiaomi 12 itself that we see on that date.
A teaser for the event mentions the Xiaomi 12 ‘series’, so greater than one phone will be getting a world launch, and given that various individuals of the Xiaomi 12 family have already landed in China, we have a desirable concept of what.
But Xiaomi may now not give up with simply the phones it’s launched in China, as there are whispers of different participants of the Xiaomi 12 family too.
Below then, we’ve listed every known or rumored Xiaomi 12 model starting with the ones that we expect to see on March 15 and followed by those that we don’t.
It wouldn’t be the Xiaomi 12 launch without the Xiaomi 12, so of course, that will make an appearance, and as it’s already been unveiled in China we know exactly what to expect from it other than price and availability details.
The Xiaomi 12 has a top-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, up to 12GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, a triple-lens camera led by a 50MP sensor, a 4,500mAh battery with 67W charging, and a 6.28-inch 1080 x 2400 OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate.
Xiaomi 12 Pro
The Xiaomi 12 Pro was once unveiled alongside the Xiaomi 12 in China so we’re fully expecting to see it get an international launch alongside its sibling too, even though there’s an outside chance that it would possibly not, relying on the company’s worldwide strategy.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro has a 6.73-inch 1440 x 3200 AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, an effective Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, up to 12GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, a 4,600mAh battery with remarkably rapid 120W charging, and a triple-lens camera, with 50MP sensors for main, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses.
The Xiaomi 12X was the third and final model in the range unveiled in China, and we’re a lot less sure that this one will get a global launch.
But we’re including it in this section because MySmartPrice claims to have learned European pricing for the phone from “industry sources.” Of course, there wouldn’t be European pricing for it if it wasn’t getting a wider launch – though this is just a leak, for now, so we’d take it with a pinch of salt.
In any case, the Xiaomi 12X is an almost identical phone to the standard Xiaomi 12, just with a slightly less powerful Snapdragon 870 chipset, and therefore also a lower price.
Given how similar this device is it seems a bit niche, which is why we remain slightly skeptical that it will get a global launch, but leaks do suggest it might.
Xiaomi 12 Lite
The Xiaomi 12 Lite hasn’t been unveiled anywhere yet, so we’re less sure that we’ll see this than any of the phones above, but it’s rumored to exist, and appears to have been certified by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), which is something that would typically happen shortly before a launch in Europe.
The Xiaomi 12 Lite is rumored to have a 6.55-inch 1080 x 2400 screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a triple-lens camera including a 64MP main sensor, and a mid-range Snapdragon 7-series chipset.
Xiaomi 12 Ultra
There have been numerous rumors of a Xiaomi 12 Ultra, designed to sit above even the Xiaomi 12 Pro. The existence of this phone would make sense too since there was a Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.
But current leaks suggest it won’t land before July, and there’s some question over whether this phone even exists. So if it launches at all it probably won’t do for at least four months yet. The main upgrade with this phone could be the camera, with talk of up to seven lenses on the rear.
Xiaomi 12 Ultra Enhanced
Even the Xiaomi 12 Ultra might not be the top model in the Xiaomi 12 range, as there are also whispers of a Xiaomi 12 Ultra Enhanced.
We don’t know anything about this phone yet, so it’s not clear what ways it would be enhanced, but since we doubt we’ll see the Xiaomi 12 Ultra on March 15, we’re even less convinced we’ll see the Xiaomi 12 Ultra Enhanced.
As there’s so little information on this phone it may well not exist anyway, and if it does it might not end up being widely available, as it sounds like it could be a niche – and expensive – device.
Xiaomi 12 Mini
There’s also talk of a Xiaomi 12 Mini, but with most of the leaks being conflicting or sketchy, we’re not at all convinced that this is a real device, especially as the Xiaomi 12 itself is already fairly compact.
We’d be surprised if this launches at all, and even more so if it lands at the upcoming event, as we haven’t heard any suggestions that it will arrive there.
