Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Xiaomi, which took place in December 2021 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2021). This is a new model Xiaomi 12X — dual 5G-smartphone works on Android 12, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. The manufacturer implemented functionality for working in 5G networks in this model. This means that you can use high-speed mobile Internet (up to 100 Mb/s) without delay with a stable signal. Agree that this should be very useful and we will all quickly get used to this quality of mobile Internet.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Xiaomi 12X. The body is quite compact and the screen occupies almost all of its area from edge to edge (from 80% to 90% of the area of the case). There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a cutout in the form of a small hole for a selfie camera. On the front side of the case is located huge OLED-screen with diagonal 6.28″ and with refresh rate 120 Hz. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 4 500 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 32 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment good cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 50 MP Wide + 13 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Telephoto macro, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Xiaomi 12X is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 870 5G (7 nm). As for RAM, the memory module is used here 8 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 12 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 128/256 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Xiaomi 12X: buy or not to buy?

$710 is the price for Xiaomi 12X 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 12X 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.
