In France, the Xiaomi 12 and 12 could cost more than Samsung’s latest Galaxy S22. Both smartphones will soon arrive in Europe.

Presented in China at the end of December, the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro are still waiting in Europe. These high-end smartphones, equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, are highly anticipated and one of the doubts is their price. To each price announcement for the Chinese market you have to add a few hundred euros to know the price in the European market. And for the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro, it’s a cold shower.

According to information from price slime, the new Xiaomi phones will be presented on March 15 for international markets. The Indian site goes further and claims to have the European prices of the two models in their hands. In the Old Continent, the Xiaomi 12 and the Xiaomi 12 Pro would cost 899 euros and 1,099 euros respectively.

According to MySmartPrice, the basic model will have two variants with 8/128 GB or 8/256 GB, compared to the Xiaomi 12 Pro, it would ship 256 GB of storage with 8 or 12 GB of RAM. Finally, the Xiaomi 12X could land with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage; and it would cost between 600 euros and 700 euros. However, it is not yet certain that this model will accompany the launch of the rest of the range.

With these prices, Xiaomi changes dimension

If confirmed, these prices are likely to surprise European consumers. The latter have become accustomed to seeing the Chinese giant stand out for its value for money, even in high-end models. For example, the Xiaomi Mi 11 has been installed in Europe from 749 euros. Although the Mi 11 Pro never arrived in France, a premium version called Mi 11 Ultra is on display at 1,199 euros.
