Xiaomi has the iPhone 13 in its sights. The Chinese manufacturer has started teasing its future Xiaomi 12 by targeting Apple’s flagship smartphone.
The year of the smartphone is not over yet. In fact, Xiaomi must present on December 28 a new model, the Xiaomi 12, which goes against current trends: its screen will be smaller than that of its predecessor, the Mi 11. In this case, it will be 6.28 inches , instead of 6.81 inches.
One of the first smartphones to integrate the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
Xiaomi seeks the direct confrontation with the iPhone 13, the manufacturer opposing the two smartphones in several teasers. The first shows that the Xiaomi 12 will be 69.9mm wide, compared to 71.5mm for the Apple model. And this, despite a larger screen (that of the iPhone 13 is 6.1 inches). But the relationship is also different, the Xiaomi panel will be narrower, but longer.
Beyond these comparisons that don’t make a lot of sense, the new smartphone and its Pro version will be particularly interesting to follow. Your AMOLED screen will thus have a 120 Hz update, with a brightness of up to 1,600 nits. Inside you’ll find a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Qualcomm’s newest chip.
A leaked Geekbench benchmark recently revealed scores of 1224 on a single core and 3823 on multiple cores. Results very close to those recorded by Qualcomm in its reference device (1,235 / 3,837), and superior to those of the Snapdragon 888 that replaces the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (1,100 / 3,500).
