This is a smartphone on Android 12 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 3 modules (50 MP Wide, 13 MP UltraWide, 5 MP Telephoto macro), and the front camera here turned out to be very high quality, which can make beautiful selfies.

Android version and market relevance

In December 2021 Xiaomi company introduced its new smartphone Xiaomi 12. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards and 5G-network, which is running on 12.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 12 already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Xiaomi 12 screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is OLED-screen with diagonal 6.28″ and with a punch-like notch for selfie camera and sensors (display refresh rate — 120 Hz).

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Xiaomi 12 the case turned out very thick — 8.2 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 4 500 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The most important characteristics of Xiaomi 12 cameras: main camera received 50 MP Wide + 13 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Telephoto macro, front camera got 32 MP Wide. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality. And the most interesting thing is that the main camera on the back of the body has several lenses (triple camera smartphones). That can do 2x zoom without losing quality. And with the help of at least two lenses, you can shoot portraits with the bokeh effect, this is when the background is blurred and the photo appears like depth. In this model, the selfie camera is on the front and you can see it. In 2019, smartphones were announced with a front camera, which is located inside the body and is not visible. When you need to take a photo, the front camera slides up from the body. You take your selfie, the photo is saved and then the camera goes down into the body. All smartphones with pop-up front camera from different producers at different prices are collected in the catalog. If you are interested in such models, we advise you to first watch video reviews about them, and then make a choice and buy.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Snapdragon 8 Gen1 (4 nm) installed in Xiaomi 12. 8/12 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 128/256 GB. Memory cards in this model, unfortunately, are not supported.

Price for Xiaomi 12: buy or not to buy?

$575 is the price for Xiaomi 12 at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a cool selfie camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? This model received a very good battery with increased capacity.

Xiaomi 12 will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
