Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi 12 series late in December 2022. The company unveiled three smartphones under its latest flagship smartphone series. It includes the vanilla 12, the 12 Pro and the affordable version, the 12X. The company launched its premium smartphones in China. There is no official word on the exact launch date of the Xiaomi 12 series in India and other global markets. While we wait for the official announcement, MySmartPrice has exclusively learned about the Xiaomi 12 series launch timeline from tipster Mukul Sharma.
The tipster tells us that the Xiaomi flagship smartphones will launch outside China by February end or early March. Furthermore, Xiaomi could also launch its flagship smartphones in India soon after the global launch, if not around the same time. There is no exact word on the launch date yet. However, considering how Xiaomi has been launching its premium smartphones in India, it would not be a surprise if the Xiaomi 12 series also debuts later this year.
