Via its official Weibo account, Xiaomi announced that the successor is expected to be rolled out on December 28 – a year after the launch of the Mi 11. The Xiaomi 12 series, which will be the name of the new lineup, is actually following the company’s decision to phase out its Mi branding earlier this year. It seems that the focus will be on the Chinese market before the Xiaomi flagships make their way to global markets in 2022.
According to Gadgets 360, the new series lineup will be able to include as many as four different devices – the Xiaomi 12, the 12 Pro, the 12X, and the 12 Ultra.
Yet, there isn’t much official detailed information about the upcoming handsets, even though the company revealed that it will be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. Some rumors say that the phones have cameras centrally orientated and the Xiaomi 12 will have a triple rear camera.
Xiaomi Mi 11 launched globally ten months ago this year and offers comparable specifications to Samsung’s flagships at affordable prices.
Xiaomi is classified as the second-biggest smartphone manufacturer in Europe and the second biggest Android manufacturer in the world after Samsung.
