We may not be getting the Xiaomi 12S series, but the next best thing is coming in the form of the 12T, rumoured to get its reveal next month. While we still have to wait a little while longer to get a proper look at the new phones, it appears the first image of the range-topping model has surfaced on the Internet.
The sole photo only shows a rectangular camera bump, which is very similar to the China-only Redmi K50 Ultra, shown alongside the Mix Fold 2 last week. As with that phone, there’s a large lens next to two smaller shooters and a pill-shaped flash.
However, there is one key difference – a 200MP script on the camera bump instead of 108MP on the K50, referring to the main sensor. If this image isn’t fake, the 12T Pro wouldn’t be the first phone to get a 200MP camera; that honour falls on the new Motorola X30 Pro, which uses Samsung’s Isocell HP1 sensor. The Korean company also announced a smaller HP3, claimed to be able to fit in more phones, earlier this year.
Aside from the new camera, the 12T Pro should be largely identical to the K50 Ultra, which gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, 8 or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 128, 256 or 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, and a 6.67” OLED display with a 2712×1220 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. There’s also an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro and a 20MP selfie shooter, plus a 5,000mAh battery and 150W of wired fast charging carried over from the 11T Pro.
According to leaker @_snoopytech_ on Twitter, the 12T will be priced starting from €649 (RM2,947), with the Pro version retailing at €849 (RM3,856). Do you think the price is reasonable for the specs on offer? Sound off in the comments below.
