It took a bit of time to make its way here, but we finally get a quick peek at the Xiaomi 12T series. There isn’t much differentiating between the Xiaomi 12T Pro and Xiaomi 12T design-wise. But there are a few visual tweaks to help tell them apart.
We got to see the blue and black options, but there’s also a silver one available. The blue variant is our pick, especially since it seems the most resistant to fingerprints. But it’s also the most vibrant out of the three colorways.
The camera module takes up the upper left of the phone. You’ll see the label 200MP for the Pro and 108MP for the 12T. Both devices get an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, 2-megapixel macro cameras, and a 20-megapixel selfie shooter.
The right side has the power button and volume rocker.
The top has the IR blaster and one of the stereo speakers of these phones. For the Pro device, there’s also a “Sound by Harman Kardon” label signifying the Harman Kardon-tuned audio on this phone.
The bottom has the other speaker, USB-C port, and SIM tray.
Both devices get a 6.67-inch crisp CrystalRes AMOLED display with a 120Hz AdaptiveSync refresh rate, 1220p resolution, HDR10+ support, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. For entertainment lovers, you’ll appreciate the 12T Pro’s Dolby Vision support.
