With a slim design profile, triple 50MP rear cameras, 8GB/12GB RAM and top of the line Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, Xiaomi 12 Pro has a lot riding on its shoulders as it competes with some high-end Samsung and other company’s flagship smartphones.

Xiaomi 12 Pro: Top 5 Features
Xiaomi’s brand-new 12 Pro flagship smartphone is packed with a high-end set of specs. It offers some premium features like 120Hz AMOLED display, triple 50MP rear camera setup, high-performance 4nm Qualcomm processor, a beautiful design and a battery that supports 120W fast charging.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor
Xiaomi’s 12 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which happens to be the latest and most powerful mobile chipset on the market right now. The 4nm octa-core processor brings Adreno GPU as well along with a 7th-generation AI Engine that understands how a customer uses the smartphone and optimises functions/apps accordingly for more efficient output.
Expect a really fluid performance while switching between apps or while playing some graphic-intensive titles. Customers may also see a more optimised power usage.
120Hz AMOLED 2K Display
The display is also one of the key features that Xiaomi boasted about during the launch of the smartphone. The flagship features a 6.73-inch AMOLED DotDisplay with 20:9 aspect ratio and 2K (3200×1440 pixels) resolution. This is at par with some of the Android flagships out there. There’s also a variable adaptive refresh rate support from 1Hz to 120Hz based on the task and the app. This will further help in saving some battery life.
Viewing should be a treat on Xiaomi 12 Pro given the handset’s display also supports HDR10+, Dolby Vision and 8,000,000:1 contrast ratio. It is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
Three 50MP Rear Cameras
Xiaomi 12 Pro is giving rivals a run for their money with its triple rear camera setup. The main 50MP wide-angle camera works on Sony IMX707, which also happens to be the India debut of the sensor. You get a 1/1.28-inch sensor size along with f/1.9 aperture and 1.22um pixel size. So, expect some pretty good low-light camera performance with this one. Besides, it also has a 50MP ultra-wide-angle camera with 115-degree FoV and a 50MP telephoto camera (48mm focal length) with f/1.9.
Micro Crystalline Structure Design
The design and build of the Xiaomi 12 Pro is rather unique and a complete departure from its predecessors. It sports a smooth finish with a velvet/matte touch – something one can expect from a premium device. It also comes in three colours – Couture Blue, Noir Black and Opera Mauve. The Micro Crystalline Structure brings out the texture look of the smartphone and makes it a bit more durable as well. Adding to the overall premium design is the metal camera island at the back.
120W HyperCharge Support
Xiaomi 12 Pro users might not have to worry a lot about the battery performance of the smartphone. It is backed by a 4,600 mAh battery, which is not a lot but more than what customers usually get in a smartphone. A cherry on top is the 120W HyperCharge fast charging tech that can charge the device fully in 18 minutes under Boost Mode and 24 minutes in Standard Mode. There’s also 50W wireless charging support.
