Xiaomi has finally announced the release of the flagship smartphones of the Xiaomi 12T line, which will replace last year’s best-selling devices of the Xiaomi 11T lineup. The new models were introduced with a new design and markedly improved performance.
Let’s start with the highest-end model. The Xiaomi 12T Pro is equipped with the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, which is a significant upgrade from the Snapdragon 888 platform used in last year’s 11T Pro. In terms of storage, the phone will be offered with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage in select markets.
The Xiaomi 12T Pro is equipped with a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2712 x 1220 pixels (between FHD+ and QHD) and an adaptive refresh rate of 120Hz. Apart from this, the display also supports features and technologies such as HDR10+, Dolby Vision and boasts an impressive peak brightness of 1200 nits.
As for the image, everything is also much more interesting here. Xiaomi 12T Pro is the company’s first smartphone to feature a 200MP ISOCELL HP1 camera. It is a large 1/1.22″ sensor with a 0.64 micrometer pixel size that can expand to 2.56 micrometers when shooting with 16-in-1 pixel binning.
Additional sensors include an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens for landscape photography and a 2-megapixel macro camera. There is also a 20-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calls.
The smartphone’s 5000 mAh battery supports blazing fast 120W wired charging, capable of delivering a full charge in just 19 minutes with the included charger, which is available out of the box. Like other high-end Xiaomi smartphones, the phone also has a powerful stereo speaker system from Harmon Kardon.
The phone is available in three different colors such as black, blue and silver. Xiaomi 12T Pro prices start at €749 for the base 8GB/128GB model and go up to €849 for the top model with 12GB+256GB setup.
Xiaomi 12T is a more affordable model with the same 6.67-inch 2712 x 1220 pixel AMOLED display, 120Hz refresh rate, 1200 nits peak brightness, HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision support.
One of the main differences between the two devices is that the base model has a 108-megapixel ISOCELL HM6 sensor on the main camera. The rest of the cameras (including the selfie camera) remain unchanged.
Under the hood of Xiaomi 12T, instead of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, you will find a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Ultra chip. That being said, you’ll still be able to enjoy decent battery life and ultra-fast charging as the phone retains the same 5,000mAh battery and supports 120W wired charging.
The Xiaomi 12T, available in the same color options black, blue and silver, starts at €599 for the 8GB/128GB package and goes up to €649 for the top model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.
