Xiaomi is gearing up to launch its next-gen flagship model, Mi 12, at the end of the year or early 2022. Now a new report has leaked details regarding the key specs of the phone. Let’s look at the Xiaomi Mi 12 specs, features and other details leaked ahead of the launch.
Tipster Ice Universe shared on Weibo that Xiaomi’s Mi 12 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 processor. This chipset will be announced later in the year. This report, however contradicts an earlier leak claiming Snapdragon 895 chipset will fuel the upcoming smartphone.
The leak further reveals that the phone may pack the newly announced LPDDR5X memory. The new RAM configuration offers a maximum data transfer rate of 6,400Mbps to 8,533Mbps. It is double what the LPDDR4X RAM does.
At present, the Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 870 processors do not support LPDDR5X RAM. But the upcoming Snapdragon 898 processor is expected to get support for LPDDR5X. To recall, Xiaomi was the first OEM to equip the Snapdragon 888 in its phone when the chip debuted in December.
