what you need to know
- Xiaomi has announced that it will host an event on October 4th.
- The event will showcase the Xiaomi 12T series as well as other IoT devices.
- Xiaomi has also touted a “leading imaging system” for the phone, presumably referring to its rumored 200-megapixel camera.
A year after the launch of the Xiaomi 11T series, Xiaomi will unveil its successor on October 4, the company has confirmed.
The new lineup will be known as Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro, like Xiaomi’s previous fall flagship models, in line with the company’s decision to stop Mi branding a few months ago. Xiaomi has teased the upcoming event (opens in new tab) on Twitter, indicating that the phone will most likely get a significant camera upgrade. In an email invitation to the event, the Chinese phone maker revealed that the upcoming phone will feature “a leading imaging system.”
While the email didn’t reveal any official details about the upcoming handsets, recent leaks and rumors could provide some clues as to what’s in the pipeline. A few days ago, the Xiaomi 12T series was leaked, with the Pro model reportedly sporting a 200MP camera, while the base variant was only rumored to have a 108MP main sensor.
However, the accompanying cameras don’t look like anything to write home about. Rumor has it that the Xiaomi 12T Pro will feature an 8MP ultrawide shooter and a macro sensor.
Under the hood, the 12T series is reportedly powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, like many of today’s best Android phones. It is expected to be paired with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. The phone is also said to pack a 5,000mAh battery with support for 120W charging.
While Xiaomi’s phones don’t have a huge presence in the US, they’re finding success in Europe and other markets largely because these phones offer comparable specs to Samsung’s flagships at lower prices.
Aside from the Xiaomi 12T series, the event is expected to see the debut of a wide range of new products, including new AIoT devices. The physical event will take place on Tuesday, October 4 at 11:00 am EST in Munich, Germany.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro features an eye-catching design, high-quality internal hardware, a stunning 120Hz AMOLED screen with four speakers and 120W wired / 50W wireless charging. The three 50 megapixel cameras on the back take fantastic photos in every situation.
