Here are the Xiaomi 12S and Xiaomi 12S Pro. Two new smartphones that take advantage of Leica’s photographic experience while taking care of the rest of its features to compete against the competition in the high-end segment.
For once, Xiaomi has presented a significant number of new products. Among them are the Xiaomi 12S and Xiaomi 12S Pro smartphones. It is true that its older brother, the 12S Ultra, appropriates the king’s crown, but they also have solid arguments to claim the titles of prince without blushing.
The Leica leg in the Xiaomi 12S and 12 Pro
First of all, the brand is very insistent on one point: this series of phones was designed in collaboration with Leica. Thus, the Xiaomi 12S and Xiaomi 12S Pro also promise a photographic experience up to the standards of the German specialist in this field.
Therefore, both devices proudly display the words “Leica” near their lenses on the back. It’s the promise to work on overall image quality and color rendering. In addition, two options stand out, which appear to be filters: “ Authentic Leica look ” Y ” Leica Vibrant Gaze “.
Therefore, even if the two smartphones are not at the top of the basket, they are not excluded from the cooperation with Leica. However, they are not entitled to the same one-inch sensor as the Ultra model. Instead, the Xiaomi 12S and Xiaomi 12S Pro use a 1/1.28-inch Sony IMX707 main camera with a resolution of 50 megapixels. The Xiaomi 12 Pro was already equipped with it.
The Xiaomi 12S uses two secondary modules, with 13 megapixel (ultra wide angle) and 5 megapixel (macro) sensors, while the 12S Pro can have two other 50 megapixel sensors, dedicated to ultra wide angle shots and one 50mm telephoto
Quick charge in the spotlight
In addition, the other technical features are also attractive. There is a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 in Xiaomi 12S and 12S Pro to ensure good power for both products, but also better temperature management. Fast charging is also mentioned as a major asset.
In fact, the Xiaomi 12S Pro has a specially designed internal Surge P1 chip to optimize the efficiency of 120W wired charging and 50W wireless charging. All that power benefits from a 4600mAh battery.
On the side of the classic Xiaomi 12S, you have to deal with a slightly less powerful 67 W charge, but the phone maintains 50 W wirelessly. It also has a smaller 4,500mAh battery.
Finally, let’s mention another difference: the Xiaomi 12 Pro is entitled to a 6.73-inch AMOLED screen in QHD + with a variable refresh rate that goes from 1 to 120 Hz. The Xiaomi 12S, on the other hand, has an AMOLED screen of 6. , 28 inches – which gives it a slightly more compact look – and also offers an adaptive 120 Hz mode, but less advanced.
What price for the Xiaomi 12S and 12S Pro?
The Xiaomi 12S and 12S Pro will be available in four colors (black, purple, green and white) and in four different storage and memory configurations.
For the Xiaomi 12S, it takes between 3,999 yuan and 5,199 yuan to get your hands on it. This works out between 571 and 743 euros if a simple conversion is done, but the European price is usually higher with taxes.
