It’s no secret that Xiaomi is about to announce a new flagship phone series soon, like “in a matter of hours”. Before their presentation this week, Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro were leaked in great detail: we know how they will appear and what characteristics they will have. We took a look at some videos and press renderings of the Xiaomi 12 a few days ago. As the full spec sheet for the phone becomes available, we will now focus on the larger Pro model.
Other specs here align with details drawn from previous rumors, leaks, and what Xiaomi has publicly revealed. We will have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC and a 50MP rear triple camera setup instead of a 108MP one. The battery will be 4,600 mAh, down from the 5,000 mAh unit in the 11 series, but this time around we will have much faster charging speeds, with support for blazingly fast 120 W wired charging and 50 W wireless charging.
There are a few distinctions between the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and its lower-end sibling, and they are instantly apparent. Both the Mi 11 and the Mi 11 Pro have the same screen size, while the Xiaomi 12 has a different size.
One thing that may or may not be true (and it would be a shame if it were) is the price, which is listed on that spec sheet as 9,999 yuan. The idea that this could be a placeholder has been rejected, as that equates to more than $ 1,500. Pricing will presumably get closer to what the 11 series was, and we expect to have more details soon, with plans to announce the phone on December 28.
