Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro design

The Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro share a similar design. They have a punch-hole cutout on the centre to accommodate the selfie snapper and narrow bezels. While the regular Xiaomi 12 has a flat screen on the front, the Pro model is slightly curved to the edges. The bottom bezel beneath the screen is also slim. The volume rocker and power button are on the right spine. There’s nothing on the left edge. The frame seems to be made out of metal.

On the back, you can see the triple camera layout arranged in a rectangular module. The primary 50MP sensor has a large cutout, while the other two are regular sized lenses. There’s Xiaomi and 5G branding on the back. While the images don’t show, the Type-C port, primary microphone, and speaker grille should be present on the bottom. They seem to have an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. 

The Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro come in Black, Blue and Purple colour options.
