According to the latest data, the flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi 12 will not be presented in December this year, as previously reported, but in November.
Last year, the Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone was introduced in December, so the Xiaomi Mi 12 was expected to debut in the same month a year later. Sources are now calling November as the time window for the flagship announcement.
It is expected that this smartphone will be built on the basis of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 single-chip processor. Earlier, Xiaomi leader Lei Jun said that the proprietary MIUI 13 firmware will officially appear at the end of the year. The company is currently intensively adapting the improved version of MIUI 12.5. Given the expected launch dates for the Mi 12 and MIUI 13, it’s logical to assume that the flagship smartphone will run MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition out of the box.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon SM8450 will be manufactured using Samsung’s 4nm technology, resulting in a 20% performance increase. Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 will have a three-cluster architecture. The platform will include a Cortex-X2-based super-core processor, Cortex-A710-based large cores, and Cortex-A510-based small cores.
In addition, Xiaomi Mi 12 series is expected to be equipped with a Samsung E5 LTPO screen with an adaptive refresh rate of 1 to 120 Hz. This will ultimately help reduce the power consumption of the device. The same screens are expected in the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.
Xiaomi Mi 12 should support 120W fast wired charging and 100W wireless charging. However, due to the introduction of new wireless charging regulations, wireless fast charging over 50W will be banned in China.
