Xiaomi has finally announced the new additions to its Xiaomi 12 lineup. Meet the Xiaomi 12T and the Xiaomi 12T Pro. Both phones have a few things in common, such as 120W fast charging and a 5000mAh battery. These phones bring massive improvements as compared to their predecessors in the same lineup. A highlight of this includes the industry-leading Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 shipping with the Xiaomi 12T Pro.
The Xiaomi 12T Pro
Starting off, we have the budget oriented flagship Xiaomi 12T Pro. This phone features a 6.67″ 120Hz display at a resolution of 1220×2712 pixels. The PPI (Pixel Per Inch) stands at 446 ppi which is slightly lower than the Xiaomi 12 Pro. This phone is the second in the world to feature a massive 200MP camera.
As for the processor, this phone comes paired with Snapdragon’s 8+ Gen 1 which beats out even Apple’s A15 Bionic (iPhone 13 Pro Max) in gaming tests. This is a massive uplift against the flagship Xiaomi 12 Pro which is powered by the 8 Gen 1.

The pricing and availability is unknown for now, however, we expect it to lie between the $700-900 range.
The Xiaomi 12T
The standard Xiaomi 12T features the same 6.67″ 120Hz panel at 2712×1220 pixels. A 108MP front camera makes the 12T stand amongst even Samsung’s best. Support for up to 4K 30FPS/1080p60FPS recording is included. Security wise, we see an in-screen fingerprint sensor along with AI assisted face unlock. The Dimensity 8100-Ultra fabricated on TSMC’s 5nm node fuels the 12T. This phone comes with 2 specifications;
