Xiaomi has announced that its new flagship smartphone will be available in India on April 27. The "Showstopper" Xiaomi 12 Pro will be released in this market just a few weeks after it was unveiled in China.
Tipster Yogesh Brar recently claimed that the Xiaomi 12 Pro 5G will start at Rs 65,000 in India. This indicates that the Xiaomi flagship will rival the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G, iQOO 9 Pro 5G, Samsung Galaxy S22, and Realme GT 2 Pro in India.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro 5G has a 6.75-inch LTPO 120Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels and a brightness of 1500 nits. Because this is an LTPO display, it will save a lot of battery life because it can switch between 1Hz and 120hz depending on what you're doing on the screen, which is a rare feature to find even in a flagship smartphone. Along with the HRD10+, Xiaomi has added Widevine L1 support, which means you will be able to stream FHD+ and HDR content on OTT platforms.
Thankfully, the triple 50MP camera array delivered, with some vibrant shots both in daylight and at night, as well as software that complements what the cameras can do. It features a 32-megapixel camera for snapping selfies, and its back panel has a 50-megapixel primary camera, a 50-megapixel ultrawide lens, and a 50-megapixel telephoto lens. The Xiaomi 12 Pro 5G runs on Android 12 OS with MIUI 13 on top. It is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and a 4,600mAh battery. The 12 Pro comes with a 120W charger, which allows you to charge your phone quickly. That's a significant advantage, but it comes with a caveat, which I'll discuss in a moment.
