If you are one of the people who are waiting for the launch of the Xiaomi 12, it is possible that the wait will be shorter than it seemed at first. And it is that, although in all cases we speak of speculation and rumors, until now tAll voices pointed to the second half of January or the first of February, coinciding with the dates of the announcement of the Xiaomi 11, in February of this year. Now it seems that the new generation could get ahead, and do it quite a bit.
And, as we can read in GSMArena, it is beginning to be rumored that the Beijing technology company could advance the launch of the Xiaomi 12 to 12 December, In two weeks. In this way, if Qualcomm’s future top of the range, the Snapdragon 898 SoC, is finally presented on November 30, it is possible that the company intends to be the first to announce a smartphone equipped with it. A milestone that, with the previous generation, Motorola was aimed.
And why in December, and more specifically on the 12th? Well, mainly for marketing, and that is in this case the Xiaomi 12 would be announced on 12 of 12. And we already know the taste that marketing departments have for these types of dates. And if, in addition, this advance also means overtaking the rest of the manufacturers and scoring the power to boast of the first smartphone with the new Qualcomm SoC, surely this is an opportunity too “sweet” to miss.
The company is knowing how to manage the development of the Xiaomi 12 quite discreetly. There have been some leaks, such as those that speak of a curved screen with 2K resolution and a refresh rate of 120 hertz and a camera with a 50 megapixel main sensor that could be from Samsung or Sony, as well as a charging function fast 120 watts and a fingerprint sensor with ultrasound technology. And, of course, the only thing we can take for sure so far, its Snapdragon SoC, yet to be presented.
Although as in the case of its predecessor, the company is expected to launch several versions of the Xiaomi 12, Nor does it seem likely that all of them will be announced and marketed on the same dates.. Pro and Ultra versions could still take a few months to see the light. In addition, we can also expect a first announcement and launch for your local market, and that it will also take a few months for the announcement of its arrival in international markets, including ours.
