A premium technical sheet
If the design does not change fundamentally compared to the previous generation, the Xiaomi 12 nevertheless opts for a much more compact format than its predecessor thanks to a width of 69.9 mm (compared to 74.6 mm on the Mi 11) and a 6.28-inch AMOLED screen displaying a Full HD + definition of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels (compared to 6.8 inches on the Mi 11).

In addition, the panel offers a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
For the rest of its technical sheet, Xiaomi does not compromise and integrates Qualcomm’s most powerful SoC currently, the aptly named Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, accompanied by 8 GB of RAM.
