Alleged Xiaomi 12 hands-on images leaked, launch could be imminent

The 12 was allegedly spotted in action in a subway and this could be our first-ever look at the upcoming flagship phone.

Tipster Mukul Sharma has shared a couple of images from Weibo showing the device in action. Not much is visible about the phone really due to it being covered by an odd-looking case, but it does seem to have an unusually tall display. Or it could just be the angles playing tricks.

The 12 was earlier tipped to feature a smaller punch-hole design and a high screen-to-body ratio along with a slight curvature of the sides. But these improvements, unfortunately, are near impossible to spot thanks to the pitch-black content being displayed on the phone in the leaked images.

Nonetheless, a 12 launch was imminent considering that its predecessor – the Mi 11 Ultra – is already being phased out in countries like India. The device reportedly also received Indian BIS certification, further confirming an upcoming release soon. Rumors have pointed towards an early-2022 release date but that hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.

12 concept

What is known is that the 12 will be one of the first devices to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset that will be manufactured using a 4nm process. It may pack up to 12GB LPDDR5x RAM and up to 512GB UFS 3.1 storage. 120W wired and 50W wireless charging may also be supported.
