Chinese phone giant Xiaomi is expected to launch the Xiaomi 12 series by the end of this month. Rumours are rife that the series may debut on December 28 comprising of three different models – Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12X, and Xiaomi 12 Pro. Now, ahead of its arrival, we have an important piece of information that sheds light on its cameras.
According to the notorious tipster DigitalChatStation, the Xiaomi 12 will not come with the popular under-display camera, instead, it will have a punch-hole camera. Furthermore, it will be a center punch-hole screen which is expected to bring improvements over its predecessors.
Moreover, the punch-hole screen will be present on all three models. The primary reason for not employing an in-display camera is still known. However, a report reveals that Xiaomi took lead in mass-producing the under-display camera for the MIX 4 and it resulted in a selfie camera that wasn’t up to the mark. That said, Xiaomi is expected to stick to employing the punch-hole camera at least for this year’s flagship series phones.
Apart from this, the other specs of the smartphone series have already been known. The Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro will come powered by the recently launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. On the other hand, the Xiaomi 12X will board the Snapdragon 870 SoC. The Xiaomi 12 series is expected to have an LTPO adaptive refresh rate screen with a refresh rate adjustment level between 1 to 120Hz.
