The Xiaomi 12 Geekbench listing suggests that the devices will feature a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset paired with 8GB RAM and boot Android 12 out of the box. The Pro model is expected to pack a 2K AMOLED display, 120W fast charging support, triple rear cameras, and a 32MP selfie camera.

As for the 12X, it will come with 8GB RAM and a 128GB/256GB storage option. The smartphone will share specifications with the Xiaomi 12, meaning it will feature a 120Hz 6.28-inch AMOLED FHD+ display, a 4,500mAh battery with 67W fast charging, a 32MP selfie snapper, and 50MP triple cameras. A Snapdragon 870 chipset will power Xiaomi 12X, and the Xioami 12 is likely to pack a Snapdragon 888 processor.

Separately, Xiaomi is also working on a Xiaomi 12 Ultra smartphone. The 12 Ultra comes with Harman Kardon speakers, 50MP Samsung GN5camera, and up to 120x zoom capabilities. If you are curious about the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, head over to our previous coverage for the same. Lastly, an alleged Xiaomi 12 mini render has recently surfaced online that reveals the design. However, the legitimacy of the renders is questionable.
