The upcoming Xiaomi 12 global variant has passed through Geekbench benchmarking website, revealing the handset’s specifications. Last month, Xiaomi unveiled the 12-series featuring the Xiaomi 12, the Xiaomi 12x, and the Xiaomi 12 Pro in China. They are the first smartphones to pack Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset under the hood. The Chinese tech behemoth did not divulge details about the series’ global availability at the time of launch.
Xiaomi 12 Global Variant Geekbench Listing
However, a new development hints at an imminent arrival of the Xiaomi 12 global variant. Before going official, the Xiaomi 12 global variant has made its appearance on Geekbench, carrying model number 2201123G. The word on the street is that the Xiaomi 12 series will launch in the global market in late February. Furthermore, the Xiaomi 12 series India launch will reportedly take place either in late March or early April. The Xiaomi 2201123G appears on the Geekbench listing with 8GB RAM and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. In other words, this Xiaomi 2201123G will be similar to the Chinese models.
Moreover, the device runs Android 12 OS, and it could have a layer of MIUI on top, just like the Chinese variants. In China, the Xiaomi 12 is available in a 12GB RAM configuration. However, it is still unclear whether this variant will be available in the global market as well. Xiaomi could shed more light on the global availability of the 12GB RAM variant in the next few weeks. Furthermore, the Xiaomi 12 global variant scored 711 and 2834 in the single-core and multi-core tests on Geekbench 5.4.4.
