The European release date has yet to be officially revealed, but it should follow on relatively short notice.
Xiaomi has just revealed the launch date of its next flagship, the Xiaomi 12. On its Weibo account, the Chinese manufacturer announced that the first models in this range will be launched in China on December 28, a year after the Xiaomi Mi. eleven.
Therefore, this generation is the first to be affected by the brand’s new rebranding. In fact, the Chinese firm has chosen to leave out the acronym “Mi”. It should include at least 4 devices: the Xiaomi 12 base, but also more powerful editions called X, Pro and Ultra. On the other hand, it is unlikely that all these devices will launch at the same time on December 28. Xiaomi has not indicated an individual release date for each model. If we look at the calendar of the previous generation, we notice that the Mi 11 Ultra was not announced until March of this year. Therefore, it is very likely that the Ultra model will not arrive until 2022.

The latest SoC, but a disappointing display?
On the other hand, the brand has already confirmed the SoC model that will power these devices. Both the basic version and the Pro model will be entitled to the new star SoC on the market; in fact, they will be equipped with the famous Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. We can hope that this will also be the case with the Ultra version. On the other hand, the Xiaomi Mi 12X should be offered with the same chip as its predecessor; Apparently, it will be entitled to the same Snapdragon 870 as the MI 11X.
According to Gadget360, the Xiaomi 12 should be equipped with a three-piece photo block, including a 50 MPx main sensor. The site also specifies that the edges should be curved, which seems anything but obvious in the rendering posted by the brand. However, there are still doubts about the screen resolution; Some rumors speak of an FHD + resolution, which would be a surprising step back from the Mi 11.
On the other hand, the rumors surrounding the battery seem much stronger, as they are based on a certification application filed in China. This reports a 5000 mAh battery with fast charging at 67 W.
Now we are waiting for more information from the Chinese manufacturer; See you on December 28 at the latest to know the latest details of the technical sheet, as well as the European launch date, which should follow in the coming weeks or months.
