Finally here we are: Xiaomi removes the veil from its new top of the range, Xiaomi 12 e 12 Pro. In this round, therefore, no Ultra model, but a duo that reveals a different strategy by Xiaomi. The evolution of the telephone market has led manufacturers to stratify the offer also in the high range. Xiaomi has decided to launch more than one version of its top of the range on the market, first with a Pro model in 2019 and then with an Ultra model from 2020. In this round, however, Xiaomi has preferred to take another approach, that is to create a top of the range also designed for those who prefer something more compact.

Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro official: this is how the premium range is renewed

Compared to previous generations, Xiaomi 12 has a central 12-bit punch-hole OLED display from 6,28 ”Full HD +, while 12 Pro rises to 6,73 "Quad HD +. The Pro model boasts a Samsung E5 panel with technology LTPO 2.0 to dynamically vary the refresh rate up to a maximum of 120 Hz. Consumption is further reduced by up to 9% by Micro-Lens technology. Protection is provided by certification IP68 and from Gorilla Glass Victus, under which we find an ID sensor for biometric unlocking.

Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro are moved by the last Snapdragon 8 Gen1, 4nm SoC with 3GHz CPU and Adreno GPU, as well as a vapor chamber cooling system. Memories cuts are from 8 / 12 GB of RAM LPDDR5 e 128 / 256 GB of non-expandable UFS 3.1 storage and connectivity includes 5G, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and infrared sensor. Power is supplied by one 4.500 mAh on the base model and one 4.600 mAh on the Pro one: change the refill, from 67W wired e 50W wireless (also reverse) on the first and from 120W on the second. The other novelty is that the battery compartment is managed by the proprietary chip Surge P1. The software is based on the new Android 12, customized by the proprietary interface MIUI 13.

The renewed photographic module includes three sensors from 50 + 13 + 5 MP on Xiaomi 12 and from 50 + 50 + 50 MP on the Pro. To change is primarily the main sensor: Sony IMX766 on the standard model and the new one Sony IMX707 on the Pro. On the standard model the secondary sensors are a wide-angle and a telemacro for close-up shots, while on the Pro we have a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. However, the selfie camera does not change, for both from 32 MP.

Among the photographic innovations we find the system Xiaomi ImageBrain, with which to improve the speed of the camera both in starting and shooting. There is also technology CyberFocus, with which to improve the autofocus in recognizing people in the frame.
