Xiaomi launched its latest flagship phones, the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro. Both handsets in the 12 series are one of the firsts to come with Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processors.

Xiaomi 12

As a non-Pro model, the Xiaomi 12 is the vanilla handset of the series. Its still a proper flagship, mind you, minus one highfalutin feature. The phone has a smaller 6.28-inch FHD AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

Of course, it has the aforementioned Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor with 8GB or 12GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage. You also get the Harman Kardon tuned stereo speakers and Bluetooth 5.2 to make up for the lack of a headphone jack.

As for the battery, it has a 4500mAh with a 67W wired fast charging, a 50W wireless fast charging, and a 10W reverse charging.
