The quality of the leaks never deceives, so we can say that the Xiaomi 12T and Xiaomi 12T Pro are almost ready to land on the market.
Neither the geopolitical crises nor the endless inflationary spiral that we are experiencing is going to dissuade Xiaomi from presenting us in 2022 with the second iteration of its family of top-of-the-range smartphones, and it seems that the Xiaomi 12T is closer than we all thought initially.
And we can affirm it without hesitation, because this information from winfuture.de, which is accompanied by detailed images, represents a leak of such quality that these Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro will very soon have brothers with the surname “T” and strategy differential.
Not in vain, these new Xiaomi 12T and Xiaomi 12T Pro that seem to be almost ready for their debut do not want to compete completely with the Xiaomi flagships that we met at the beginning of the year, because they do indeed have very high-performance hardware, although In their case, they will arrive lowering the quality of their materials, with a completely plastic chassis that will reduce weight and also costs now that raw materials are through the roof.
Thus, the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12T will be complementary devices that can coexist without major problems in the Android catalog, the latter surely being the most attractive in terms of their relationship between price and possibilities.
This will be the Xiaomi 12T Pro 5G…
The truth is that Xiaomi never skimps when we talk about the hardware of its devices, not at least if we do it with its highest-end mobiles such as this Xiaomi 12T Pro that has a well-known design with very minimalist lines, although as we said assembled around of a polycarbonate chassis.
In the set, a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of up to 120 hertz and completely flat stands out, which has a resolution of 2,712 x 1,220 pixels and is protected by chemically tempered Gorilla Glass 5 glass.
If we open the hood we would see a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chipset of the highest lineage, with 5G SA/NSA connectivity and an eight-core CPU up to 3.2 GHz, well accompanied for the occasion by 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of internal storage type UFS 3.1.

This Xiaomi 12T Pro will also have the honor of being the first in its catalog to mount the new 200-megapixel Samsung ISOCEEL HP1 photo sensor, with f/1.69 aperture optics and accompanied by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a camera. 2 MP macro quite unusable. The front camera, for its part, is 20 megapixels and is placed behind a hole in the screen, achieving a very decent result in selfies and video calls.
As for connectivity, what we already know with dual SIM 5G, dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 LE, NFC, and a USB type-C connector, adding to an impressive cast a double stereo speaker signed by Harman- Kardon and an infrared emitter that is still widely used in Asia as a remote control for other devices.
The battery should reach 5,000 mAh of typical capacity, with fast charging of up to 120 watts and reversible charging, although no news for now of support for wireless charging.
As for the non- ‘Pro’ model, we will see how Xiaomi has lowered expectations even further to contain prices and keep them very controlled, although without detracting from a team that will be sure to be very high in the pools of the medium / high cut of the industry.
Not surprisingly, this Xiaomi 12T 5G once again boasts the same 6.67-inch AMOLED panel, with a resolution of 2,712 x 1,220 pixels and a maximum refresh rate of 120 hertz, as well as the same 5,000 mAh battery with fast charge up to 120 watts.
The hardware platform is what changes, replacing Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset with a more restrained MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Ultra within equal capital solvency, with a 5G SA/NSA modem and an eight-core architecture up to 2.85 GHz. Memory configuration would be 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage, at least initially.
There are also substantial changes in the multimedia section, since those speakers tuned by Harman-Kardon are not specified here, nor is the 200-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HP1, which leaves room for a new 108-MP main camera with a huge aperture (f/1.65). The rest of the cameras are the same, with the 8 MP ultra-wide angle, the useless 2 MP macro sensor, and the 20-megapixel front camera.
Xiaomi 12T and Xiaomi 12T Pro, prices and launch
As for prices and launch, it has emerged that both devices will hit the market with Android 12 under the MIUI 13 mask, although there are still no prices or official presentation or launch dates in stores.
We can tell you that this presentation could be set next week according to Chinese sources and that the devices will start in Europe from around 849 euros for the Xiaomi 12T Pro 5G and from 649 euros in the case of the Xiaomi 12 5G.
