Xiaomi will likely unveil the Xiaomi 12 globally and in India series by April

MySmartPrice reports that the Xiaomi 12 series of smartphones will debut in India soon after their global launch. The Xiaomi 12X will follow the Mi 11X (review) that was announced last year in the country. As per a recent report, the upcoming smartphone is tipped to be offered in 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB RAM and storage configurations as well as Purple, Grey and Blue colour options. On the other hand, the regular Xiaomi 12 will arrive as the successor to the Mi 10 that debuted way back in 2020. 

Xiaomi has a history of launching its flagship smartphones in the months of April and May respectively. The Mi 11X, Mi 11 Ultra and Mi 10 were announced in the same months. Hence, we can expect the brand to follow a similar launch timeline for the Xiaomi 12 series, although the latest report claims a possible launch by the end of February or early March. 

The global and Indian variants of Xiaomi 12 series smartphones are expected to come with the same specifications as their Chinese counterparts. This means that the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro could be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, 12-bit display, 120Hz refresh rate, triple rear cameras, 4,500mAh battery with support for 50W wireless charging and more. The Xiaomi 12X is a toned-down version of the standard and Pro models with an FHD+ 120Hz display, Snapdragon 870 and 67W fast charging.
