As per the Geekbench listing, the Xiaomi 12 global variant could carry the model number 2201123G. The listing shows an 8GB RAM variant with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, similar to the China models. It is running Android 12, most likely with the MIUI on top, similar to the variants available in China. Xiaomi also sells a 12GB RAM variant of the Xiaomi 12 in its home country, but we’re not sure if that’ll be sold globally. We’d have to wait a couple more weeks to find out for sure.
The global variant of Xiaomi 12 has managed to attain a single core score of 711 and a multi-core score of 2834 running Geekbench 5.4.4. The vanilla Xiaomi 12 features a 6.28-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel that offers 120Hz refresh rate, and is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. It gets a triple rear camera setup that consists of a 50-megapixel primary sensor, a 13-megapixel ultrawide unit, and a 5-megapixel macro sensor.
