The Xiaomi 12X 5G, little brother of the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro, arrives in France. It is not quite a lite version, but nevertheless less powerful than the Xiaomi 12, it is offered today at a lower price.
A younger joins the very recent Xiaomi 12 series: the Xiaomi 12X, which completes the range together with the Xiaomi 12 and the Xiaomi 12 Pro. Similar in every way to the Xiaomi 12, except on the power side, finally it is available in France, for the moment only in the official store of the Chinese manufacturer.
Xiaomi 12X: availability and prices in France
Until now, the availability in France of the Xiaomi 12X remains uncertain: some even thought that it would remain confined to China. However, Xiaomi has decided to sell it on French soil and today it has revealed the prices and the available configuration. The choice will be easy at this level, since only one configuration is offered: 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM. As for the colors, Xiaomi offers the same as for the 12: gray, blue and purple.
The price, for its part, may surprise you: Xiaomi offers it at 799.90 euros and 849 euros in a pack with the Xiaomi Buds 3 headphones. The Xiaomi 12X is therefore 100 euros cheaper than the classic model, sold at 899.90 euros of public price, but can be found at a lower price in some merchants.
Is this enough to attract consumers? For 100 euros more, it is possible to take advantage of the full power of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip integrated in the Xiaomi 12. The Snapdragon 870 SoC implanted in the 12X, for its part, dates from last year. However, it also offers 5G connectivity.
The characteristics of the Xiaomi 12X
As a reminder, the Xiaomi 12X therefore has the same face as the Xiaomi 12: 6.28-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen at 120 Hz, triple photographic module, with a 50 Mpx main sensor, as well as a 32 Mpx selfie camera. It also has HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support, as well as Dolby Atmos on the sound side. Its 4,500 mAh battery can be recharged at 67 W, only with a cable, unlike the 12 model that benefits from wireless charging.
Finally, the phone comes natively with the latest operating system available, namely MIUI 13 (Android 12).
Therefore, it is in the integrated processor, as well as in the absence of wireless charging, that the 12X differs from the 12.
At the moment, the Xiaomi 12X is offered, in a single version, only in the mi.com official store. The smartphone and wireless headset pack is available at Fnac. Eventually this model should also be sold at Boulanger and Darty.
