So far, Xiaomi’s top-of-the-line phones have been all about big numbers and bragging rights. An excellent example of this is the Mi 11 Ultra (Review). It was a great example of this. If you look at the Xiaomi 12 Pro, it seems like the company has taken a more subtle approach. The design of the 12 Pro is more mature and refined, and there are no significant numbers for the cameras or even the battery capacity on it. Xiaomi claims to have worked on making things more consistent instead. That’s what we’re going to find out. Is this Xiaomi smartphone slim and stylish enough to be called a flagship phone in 2022? There is a lot to see.
If you want to buy a Xiaomi 12 Pro, there are two options. A base model with 8GB of RAM costs Rs. 62,999 in India. There’s a second model with 12GB of RAM that costs Rs. 66,999, as well. Both have 256GB of internal storage, but there’s no way to add more.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro has a thin metal frame between two sheets of glass. Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus is used on the screen, and the back panel is made of Gorilla Glass 5. The sides of both glass panels on this device are curved, making it easy to hold on to this thing. At 205g, the 12 Pro doesn’t feel too heavy.
6.72-inch WQHD+ E5 AMOLED screen has slight curves on both sides. It has a peak refresh rate of 120Hz, but thanks to the LTPO 2.0 technology, it can be slowed down to just one Hz. The screen is also HDR10+ and Dolby Vision certified, making this phone a good choice for streaming HDR videos on the web. A Harman Kardon-tuned quad-speaker system is also on the list of things to buy.
Based on Android 12, this phone runs MIUI 13, which is called MIUI 13. I’ve had the phone; it looks like it has most of the new Android 12 features. I did, however, notice some third-party apps that came with the phone when I bought it.
So far, almost every new high-end smartphone has used . The Xiaomi 12 Pro is the first smartphone to use this chip. When you use the 120W charger with the phone in Boost mode, Xiaomi says you can charge it in just 18 minutes. There is also a 4,600mAh battery that can be set in that time. The 12 Pro can also charge at 50W wirelessly and 10W wirelessly in reverse.
On the Xiaomi 12 Pro, all three rear cameras have 50-megapixel sensors. This makes the camera set-up on this phone unique. The primary camera has optical image stabilization (OIS), the ultra-wide-angle camera has a 115-degree field of view, and the telephoto camera has a 2X optical zoom to get a closer look. A front-facing camera with 32 megapixels is in charge of taking selfies on the iPhone 6.
This is a high-end smartphone that starts at Rs. 62,999 in India. It looks like a real flagship. It looks high-end and classy, but it doesn’t have an official IP rating for dust and water resistance, which is very important. It’s a little weird because some of Xiaomi’s budget phones have IP ratings, but this one doesn’t have one. Many people might not want to buy this just because of this fact.
Another interest is how Xiaomi’s Android 12 works with Samsung and OnePlus’s top-of-the-line phones. The full review of this high-end smartphone from Xiaomi will be out soon on Gadgets 360. If you want to learn more about this phone, stay tuned.
