In the set of cameras, the rear may have three 50 MP cameras for main, ultrawide and periscope. Therefore, Xiaomi would abandon the Mi 11’s 108 MP sensor, but the lower resolution component does not necessarily represent a downgrade, as it may come with larger pixels, which helps in the final quality of the images. The device’s battery will have 5,000 mAh, with possible support for fast charging up to 67 W.
Xiaomi 12X will have several components in common
The biggest difference between the XIaomi 12X and the main model in the line is in the adoption of the Snapdragon 870 processor. It will also have a 6.28-inch screen, with AMOLED technology, Full HD+ resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. it will also have a 50 MP main camera, but it’s not yet confirmed whether it will get two or three auxiliary sensors — up front, the selfie camera should be 20 MP. The cell phone battery will have 5,000 mAh, charging 67 W per cable, or 33 W wirelessly.
Suggested prices for the two models will also be known at the time of presentation, but prices and availability for other markets will be announced by the brand at a later date.
