After unveiling the Xiaomi 12 for China at the end of December, the manufacturer has now unveiled its next top smartphones for the rest of the world.

There are no differences in the design and features of the Xiaomi 12X, Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro compared to the presentation in December, but we have information on the sales launch, prices and color and storage variants.

    Xiaomi 12 unveiled: Pro version with larger display and more megapixels

Xiaomi 12 Pro: Large flagship model

The Xiaomi 12 Pro is the top model of the series. It stands out from the other two smartphones with its size, camera system and even faster charging. Its AMOLED display is 0.45 inches larger - the entire smartphone is 4.7 millimeters wider, 10.9 millimeters longer and 25 grams heavier as a result. Sounds like little, but it is over ten percent more weight.

The camera system raises hopes. All three cameras on the back have a resolution of 50 megapixels. Thus, the image quality of the ultra-wide-angle and telephoto camera should not drop compared to the main camera - which is otherwise often the case. OnePlus has shown how well this works with its 9-series.

The battery of the Xiaomi 12 Pro offers only a bit more capacity - 100 mAh - than in the other two smartphones. In return, you can charge it even faster. The power adapter manages 120 watts. However, since the other smartphones already charge very quickly with 67 watts, this only gives you an advantage of a few minutes.

Externally, the Xiaomi 12 and 12X are identical. The processor makes the difference. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the Xiaomi 12 should have more power than the Snapdragon 870 in the 12X. However, you will hardly notice the difference in everyday use. You will rather notice the difference during charging. While the Xiaomi 12 supports wireless charging, you can only charge the battery in the 12X via cable.

When I was but a young student, I'd sit in my friend's living room with all my classmates and play on his SuperNES. Since then I've had the opportunity to test out all the newest technology for you. I've done reviews at Curved, Computer Bild and Netzwelt, and have now arrived at Galaxus.de.
