Photo Announcement. Xiaomi 12 Pro (Dimensity) - some more confusion - Mobile News World - Helpix

In addition to the 12S series devices, Xiaomi also introduced a smartphone called Xiaomi 12 Pro 天玑版, which translates from hieroglyphs into English as Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity) at the event the day before yesterday, a>.

As you might guess from the name, the smartphone runs on the Dimensity chipset. More specifically, this is the debut of the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset, which is a slightly overclocked version of the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset. No performance data yet. But in general, we are waiting in AnTuTu in the region of a million points. So yes, the performance here is flagship.

About pudance.

Unfortunately, Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity) is another marketing smartphone from the "let's confuse everything" series. Unraveling.

1. We already have a couple of twin smartphones Xiaomi 12 Pro based on Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and Xiaomi 12S Pro based on Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. It would be logical to assume that the newcomer should differ from them only in the chipset. But no. It has an even bigger battery, slower charging and a different set of cameras.

2. The set of cameras, as far as I can tell, is identical to that used in a smartphone Xiaomi 12S. True, there is a nuance. Xiaomi 12S (like all devices of the 12S series) was made in collaboration with Leica. Here, there is no coveted inscription on the body. So it is possible that the quality of the shooting is different. Well, we don’t know how to shoot 8K video.

Let's go through the rest of the characteristics.

Camera set - 50+13+5 MP. The main sensor is a solid Sony IMX707 with optical stabilization. The other two rear cameras are not so interesting. These are standard wide and macro. Macro, however, with autofocus. Well, the front camera seems to be identical to those used in smartphones of the 12S series, it has a resolution of 32 MP.

There is a lot of memory. 8 or 12 GB RAM. 128 or 256 GB permanent. No memory card support.

Screen - LTPO2 AMOLED with dynamically changing refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz. 6.73" (109 cm²) diagonal, 1440x3200 ultra high resolution (521 ppi).

Battery. The capacity is not bad, 5160 mAh. Wired charging is fast, although sometimes faster - 67 watts. Plus there is wireless charging. And it is also, to put it mildly, not slow - 50 W.

From sad - perhaps a fingerprint scanner hidden under the screen. Everything else is available. NFC, Wi-Fi 6, etc.

From "our" �There is no LTE band Band 20. All the rest, it seems, are in place.

Chinese prices are ¥3999 (₽35800, $611) and ¥4499 (₽40200, $688) for the 8+128 and 12+256 GB varieties, respectively.
