Xiaomi has just confirmed its suspicions that its next line of high-performance cellphones, the Xiaomi 12 series, will be officially unveiled next Tuesday, December 28th.
In posters published on the Chinese social network Weibo, the company confirms that the smartphone line will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, Qualcomm’s new high-performance chipset that will power the most powerful Android phones over the next year.

In another official teaser we look at the front panel design of two of the line’s smartphones — which we assume are the Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12, respectively — both offering a circular notch centered at the top of the screen.
It is also possible to notice that both devices, or at least the smaller model, where it is even more evident, will have a slightly curved panel on the sides. The volume and power control buttons are positioned on the right side of the devices.
The company did not reveal details about the rear panel of the devices, but rumors and leaks already reinforce that we will have a set of three main cameras with a highlighted lens and two others positioned vertically below.
Very recently the Xiaomi 12 Pro was discovered in the Geekbench benchmark platform database reinforcing its model number 2201122C, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and version with 12 GB of RAM memory.
The Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro are expected to be unveiled at next week’s event. The announcement of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, the brand’s most powerful phone at its launch, takes place in early 2022.
There are signs that Xiaomi is preparing a wide variety of models for the new series. In addition to the Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro and 12 Ultra, the brand also works on the Xiaomi 12X, 12 Lite and 12 Lite Zoom, as well as a more compact version that can be called Xiaomi 12 Mini or 12 YE (Youth Edition).
More details about this huge variety of devices, and their traditional versions renamed for the Chinese and Indian market, should come out very soon.
