Beijing, China, March 15th, 2022 – Xiaomi today announced the global debut of the all-new Xiaomi 12 Series, which includes three game-changing devices: the Xiaomi 12 Pro, Xiaomi 12, and Xiaomi 12X.
Xiaomi 12 Series is a cutting-edge videography studio and entertainment powerhouse designed to empower consumers all over the world. It features amazing breakthroughs in Xiaomi’s AI algorithm, flagship processing power, and an overall enhanced experience.
The Xiaomi 12 Series allows users to capture studio-quality footage in any situation, including tricky lighting situations and moving objects. The Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12 include a pro-grade triple camera array for diverse photography, with a large 50MP main wide-angle camera and 8K recording capability on both phones.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro is distinguished by its cutting-edge triple 50MP array, which includes a Sony IMX707 ultra-large primary sensor. With faster focus speeds and improved color accuracy, this sensor is capable of capturing enormous volumes of light and enabling sophisticated photography capabilities. For capturing life from diverse perspectives, the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12X have a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 5MP telemacro camera.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12 not only have excellent hardware but also advance Xiaomi’s unique AI algorithms. These advancements make it easier than ever for users to capture every moment exactly how they want it, even in low-light situations or when recording moving subjects. Xiaomi ProFocus recognizes and follows objects intelligently, preventing blurry or out-of-focus images of moving or veiled subjects. Eye and facial autofocus capabilities are also included in these advances. Xiaomi’s patented algorithms allow Ultra Night Video to record video even in extreme low-light conditions, resulting in dark, atmospheric photos that are more crisper than ever.
One-click AI Cinema, which is available on all three devices, provides several creative possibilities for show-stopping video editing, including Parallel World, Freeze Frame Video, and Magic Zoom modes.
Snapdragon® 8 Gen 1 processor
A flagship experience necessitates a flagship level of performance. Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM smartphone platforms power the Xiaomi 12 Series. The Snapdragon® 8 Gen 1 processor found in the Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12 is Qualcomm’s most advanced mobile platform. This CPU, which is based on a 4nm technology, improves GPU graphic rendering capabilities by 30% and energy efficiency by 25% over the previous iteration. ¹ Meanwhile, the Xiaomi 12X is equipped with Qualcomm’s flagship 5G processor, the Snapdragon® 870, for seamless daily use. All three devices have UFS 3.1 for fast loading and data transfer, as well as LPDDR5 RAM for up to 6,400Mbps memory rates.
The Xiaomi 12 Series features a high-performing cooling system, which is bolstered by a super-large vapor chamber and many layers of graphite to provide industry-leading cooling performance.
All three devices offer vivid viewing on an AMOLED Dot Display rated A+ by DisplayMate, and with TrueColor support. For added peace of mind, the display features scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® and supports Dolby Vision®, the industry’s leading imaging technology that brings your content to life with vibrant color and details. Xiaomi 12 Series also supports HDR 10+. Xiaomi 12 Pro is SGS Eye Care Display Certified, showing care for users’ long-term visual health during marathon sessions.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi 12 Pro redefines the flagship display with incredibly smooth viewing, scrolling, swiping, and sliding. The device’s highly power-efficient 6.73-inch WQHD+ display leverages AdaptiveSync Pro to intelligently adjust dynamic LTPO display between 1Hz and 120Hz based on content.
Xiaomi 12 Series features SOUND BY Harmon Kardon, and creates an immersive audio experience powered by Dolby Atmos®, delivering spatial sound with rich detail, clarity, and realism across all your favorite entertainment. Xiaomi 12 Pro’s quad speakers – in the form of two tweeters and two woofers – deliver clear details and cover an astounding range of sound. Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12X both deliver the balanced stereo sound ideal for immersive gaming or video.
To optimize core user experience further, Xiaomi 12 Series incorporates MIUI 13, released globally earlier this year. The update includes faster storage, higher background process efficiency, smarter processing, and longer battery life. New features in the upgraded experience include Xiaomi’s proprietary Liquid Storage, Atomized Memory, Focused Algorithms, and Smart Balance.
