After many rumours, the Xiaomi 12 series is finally here today. The Chinese smartphone maker brought three devices at once this time - Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro, and Xiaomi 12X. Both Xiaomi 12 and the Pro variant get powered by the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, making them ready for next year's flagship war. Now, let's read on to find out the other tech specs.

Xiaomi 12

The vanilla Xiaomi 12 sports a 6.28-inch AMOLED screen. It also brings a 120Hz refresh rate, 2400 x 1080 resolution, 12-bit colours, and an 1100 nit max brightness. Under the hood, it packs a 4,500mAh battery that supports 67W wired and 50W wireless charging, alongside a 10W reverse wireless charging.
