Xiaomi seems a little too hurry in announcing its next line of smartphones – the Xiaomi 12 series. Just a couple of days ago we heard of this new model – the Xiaomi 12 Mini – and today it appeared on the Chinese 3C certification site.
We don’t doubt that one of the models from the series will feature the new Snapdragon 898 SoC, but this mini model is definitely not that one. Instead, this 12 Mini is featuring the Snapdragon 870 SoC, still a good chipset, which will include Kryo 585 CPU and the ultra-fast Qualcomm Adreno 650 GPU.
The Xiaomi 12 mini landed on the Chinese 3C certification site with model number 2112123AC. The device will feature 67W wired fast charging, quite impressive. The device will also come with 5G network support. The device will also use UFS 3.1+LPDDR5 storage specifications.
The mini is not so mini with a 6.28-inch FHD+ flat AMOLED display, as we heard. It may have a 120Hz refresh rate and a 480Hz touch response. As we heard from some reports. this device will feature a quad-camera setup but don’t see renders with such a setup, we aren’t going to quote more from that source until we are certain about it.
We also heard that the Xiaomi 12 mini will feature in three variants and also have received prices predictions for each:
- The 8GB/128GB model may come for 3599 yuan ($564)
- The 8GB/256GB ay have a price tag of 3899 yuan ($611)
- The 12GB/256GB may carry a price tag of 4299 yuan ($674)
We also heard that this Xiaomi smartphone of the Xiaomi 12 series will feature three-dimensional dual speakers, X-axis linear motor, NFC, infrared remote control, and more.
