As far as the Xiaomi 12 is concerned, there is very little we know about the device. We do know that it is going to be a successor to the Xiaomi Mi 11, we also know that it is going to feature the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, a QHD+ 120Hz screen, and hopefully a newer generation of the under-display fingerprint sensor as well. You can also expect a large battery, something that Xiaomi is known for, and all the goodness that comes with the new chipset.
The Xiaomi 12 will of course be running the latest version of Android 12 skinned with MIUI. It should be debuting next month and honestly, I am excited to see what the phone has to bring, as it will be the first phone that will be featuring Qualcomm's latest and greatest.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 looks promising, to say the least. If you are looking to know more about the chipset, you can head over here and get all the details you want. I cannot wait for the Xiaomi 12 to come out, the company is known for some really nice innovations, so let's see what we are getting this time.
