There is every reason to believe that the history of last year will repeat itself and Xiaomi will be the first to present the flagship of the new season. We will have to talk about Xiaomi 12 as the first smartphone with Snapdragon 898. Provided that some other manufacturer is not among Qualcomm’s favorites.
The main advantage that the company will stake on is clear. We are talking about the Snapdragon 898, which will be the norm for 2022 flagships. What about the other characteristics? The display should also allow the gadget to be considered a flagship one. Network sources say that the Xiaomi 12 will again rely on a 2K AMOLED matrix.
The refresh rate, of course, will be increased, but they will not experiment with the subscreen camera here. The front panel should be quite standard for our days: curved edges and a front camera in a miniature hole. Of course, the bezels around the perimeter of the screen will be small.
The flagship ambitions of the Xiaomi 12 may be hit by the lack of moisture protection and not the best camera on the market. It is still not clear whether the smartphone will offer optical zoom support or not. There is no doubt that for most of its characteristics it will come out as an attractive solution, but its fate will largely depend on the price. Looking at the company’s pricing policy for top-end devices, it is hard to believe in a low price tag.
