The Xiaomi 12T series is set to launch before the end of 2022, and almost full details about the devices have already started to appear on the internet. It looks like the Xiaomi 12T Pro will be the second phone equipped with a 200-megapixel camera, similar in performance, probably, to the one on the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra. However, it seems that for Xiaomi, this will be an “affordable high-end”, not a true flagship, according to the specs list.
Xiaomi 12T Pro to launch in the near future
WinFuture, the German publication that seems to have well-placed industry sources, has published the first images of the Xiaomi 12T and Xiaomi 12T Pro, the Chinese manufacturer’s two new performance devices. Along with the images, we also have the hardware component lists, which suggest that a large part of the budget will be invested in the main cameras, the others being a bit more “mundane”.
The Xiaomi 12T Pro, the top model, will be equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, 12 GB RAM and 256 GB internal storage. The phone will use a 200-megapixel camera with Samsung sensor, but it might not be optically stabilized. Next to this sensor, two medium cameras will be joined: one with an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens and a 2-megapixel macro camera.
The 6.67″ screen benefits from a resolution between FullHD and QDH, 2,712 x 1,220 pixels, the battery is 5,000 mAh with 120W charging, and the front camera has 20 megapixels. These three features are valid for both models.
Where the Xiaomi 12T differs from the Pro model is primarily the processor. It comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset, which is powerful enough for most activities, but not a flagship one. Then, the camera benefits from a sensor of “only” 108 megapixels. Hardware configurations for the “standard” Xiaomi 12T will be with 8 GB RAM and 128 or 256 GB internal storage.
Pricing however will be in the mid-range premium/flagship killer area. The Xiaomi 12T Pro will cost around €850, according to WinFuture, while the 12T will start at €649.
