Xiaomi Mi 12 Detailed Description:


Both Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro look almost the same when it comes to the design, other than the size. The screens curve at the edge, and there is a ‘punch-hole’ at the center top that houses the selfie camera. The cameras are housed in rectangular bumps with one giant and two smaller lenses at the back of the phone. This handset comes in black, green, blue, or pink.  It weighs 179 gms and has a dimension of 152.7 x 69.9 x 8.2 mm.


With a 6.28-inch display, Xiaomi 12 is neither big nor small. This smaller sibling of Xiaomi 12 Pro has a 1080 x 2400 resolution with an OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1100 nits max brightness. Just like Xiaomi 12 Pro it also supports Dolby Vision and HDR10+.


Here you are getting a 50 MP f/1.9 main camera and 32MP selfie snapper equal to that in Xiaomi 12 Pro. But that’s where the similarities end. In total, the Xiaomi 12 gets exactly 100MP shared between its four cameras, but the Xiaomi 12 Pro has a grand total of 182MP. Under good light, the photos are brilliant just like the videos. You can shoot videos in 8K@24fps (HDR10), 4K@30fps (HDR10+), 1080p@30/120/240/960fps and 720p@1920fps, gyro-EIS.

Xiaomi mi 12 Performance

Xiaomi 12 gets Qualcomm’s newest super-powerful chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, paired with either 8GB RAM for efficiency in multitasking. The software is Android 12, with Xiaomi’s MIUI 13. Although we haven’t tested the Xiaomi 12, expect great performance from it for sure.

Battery and Charging

Battery-wise, we would have preferred the Xiaomi mi 12 to pack a 5000 mAh battery capacity like the Xiaomi Mi 11, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G 512GB, and Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G 256GB but we are only getting 4500 mAh which is small compared to Xiaomi 13. The battery is great though. It will fairly take you through a day without you topping up the power. It comes with fast charging of 67W (100% in 39 min as advertised), Fast wireless charging of 50W, 100% in 53 min, and Reverse wireless charging of 10W, Power Delivery is at 3.0 and you also get a Quick Charge 4+.
