The Xiaomi 12 series is expected to be unveiled on December 28, 2021 and just ahead of the launch, we have stumbled upon leaked renders of the device. The Xiaomi 12 seems like an evolution of the Xiaomi 11T design; a phone that launched a few months ago. The design is also largely reminiscent of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro from 2020.
The Xiaomi 12 in these renders brings back some of the older fancy design touches that the previous generation Mi 11 series dropped.

That curved edge display on the Xiaomi 12 will measure 6.2-imches diagonally, which is substantially smaller than the 6.8-inch display on the Mi 11. This means that Xiaomi wants to Xiaomi 12 to take on the likes of the upcoming Galaxy S22 and the iPhone 13; the latter having a 6.1-inch display. And similar to these phones, the display resolution sticks around 1080p.
Running the phone will be a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, similar to most 2022 Android flagships.
The plain rear camera design is supposed to hold a 50MP main camera with two more camera with unknown sensors and focal lengths. Xiaomi is expected to put a 5000mAh battery in the Xiaomi 12 and will be backed by wireless charging. Some debate that the phone could feature a 100W wired charging system, although the phone seems to have bene certified with a 67W charging solution.
Xiaomi 12 expected Indian pricing
The Xiaomi 12 is expected to come at a price of ₹70,000. This puts it right up with this year's Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. This kind of pricing could make it an iPhone 13 Mini competitor, and severely higher priced when compared to the Mi 11X.
