Xiaomi-12-Pro-NoypiGeeks-5921

Xiaomi has introduced its latest flagship phones. The latest Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro boasts high-end features and are one of the firsts to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

The Xiaomi 12 feels like a more appropriate alternative to the Pro model. This one has a 6.28-inch AMOLED screen, perfect if you want a smaller and more compact device.

But despite its smaller size, it’s still a proper flagship device. It has a fast 120Hz refresh rate, UD fingerprint scanner, and durable Gorilla Glass Victus protection. Keeping the lights on is a large-for-its-size 4,500mAh battery with 67W wired charging. It also boasts ultra-fast 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging for your accessories.

There’s a large 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor on the back, equipped with optical image stabilization. The main shooter is joined by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide and 5-megapixel telephoto/macro lens.
