No wonder the world is shifting to digitalization. Xiaomi is a trusted and loved brand that delivers the very best mobiles for an affordable price. Every consumer tech company wants to be a top choice. It may have been because of this that it is ranked so high in the market over many years.
The Indian smartphone market has changed significantly and Indian customers expect a high-quality phone with lots of features that doesn’t break the bank. Xiaomi’s new flagship smartphone, Mi 12 Pro, will be available at a price starting at Rs 62999 (8GB + 256 GB), to compete with Apple, OnePlus and Samsung. Let’s see if this phone is capable of making other OEMs nervous.
Construct and design
The Xiaomi 12 Pro’s design and look are undoubtedly premium. But it is not original. Although they showcase some amazing craftsmanship, the Mi 11 Ultra’s design language is what I can’t help but love. It is lightweight at 205g, with a similar smooth finish to the Galaxy S-series.
With its sleek design and slip-in the-pocket, Xiaomi 12 Pro makes it easier to deal with bulkier phones. The phone, like all new Androids, has a USB Type C, volume, and power buttons. There is no MicroSD slot. This can be corrected by Bluetooth headphones or adapters.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro’s 6.73 inch display is clean and wide. It also has a high screen-to-body ratio. Its display has a sharp, attractive resolution of 3200×1440 Pixels. Blue light technology allows for longer hours without straining your eyes. It also has 1500 nits brightness, which makes it easy to use in dark areas. Bright colours make images more vivid and clear. Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, which provides good protection against impacts and gives you leverage so you don’t hold it too tightly, is available on the screen.
This will protect your smartphone from falling damage. It also has an LTPO2 LCD display, which can meet all your needs with a refresh rate of between 1Hz and 120Hz. This is especially useful when playing games such as BGMI.
It also features facial recognition and a thumb scanner. This feature is common in tech today. With a combination of WiFi and 5G connectivity, users can expect smooth operation and superfast connectivity.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro offers users the option of choosing between 8GB RAM and 128GB, 256GB storage, or 12GB RAM with 128GB, 128GB, or 256GB storage. It is a good standard for smartphones that are newly designed and offer great productivity, performance and quality throughout the day. This makes it suitable for both gaming and working. However, the phone offers sufficient storage for a small size. The 128GB version of the Xiaomi 12 Pro is ideal for those who don’t need too much space to use for daily tasks.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU, which is what we see on the new flagship phones. The phone is a great choice for gamers and hard workers. To aid long phone use, the core includes an LPDDR5 RAM and Adreno730 GPU.
The phone has a powerful processor that is great for multitasking. This makes it an ideal choice in business settings.
One significant difference between Xiaomi smartphones and Android phones is the operating system. Xiaomi 12 Pro runs MIUI 13 on Android 12. It is a simple and enjoyable UI that you can use, but Xiaomi must create a different UI or remove unnecessary and pre-installed apps. Customers expect a high-quality experience when they pay premium prices for flagship devices.
The 4600mAH lithium-ion battery in Xiaomi 12 Pro promises to keep it charged for all day, even when used for specific tasks. We found that battery life drops by 15% when the brightness is full and videos are played back. Although it is functional, the battery life is significantly lower than that of its competitors.
It can last you from morning to evening. It is important to charge it once per day using the fast charger.
Fast charging is the real star of this phone. The box includes a 120W fast charging charger. It takes less than 20 minutes to charge the phone, from 0% up to 100%. A 50W wireless charger, which can charge your phone 100% in 42 minutes, is available.
The 32mp front-facing camera has a modest performance but the highlights are the rear cameras. This phone is unique in India as it has three 50MP rear cameras.
The pictures taken from the main camera are bright and vibrant in daylight. However, the dynamic range of tones and colors could be a little more accurate. The indoor photos that were taken during the recent BGR Talks episode seemed to be impressive. Its performance in low light was what impressed us most. This device delivers performance comparable to the Apple flagship series.
With its stunning design, superior camera quality and powerful processor, the Xiaomi 12 Pro is a remarkable phone. This phone is the perfect companion for those looking for an Android device that allows them to do their jobs with ease, and has a convenient build.
It does have its shortcomings, however, its competition offers better features, such as longer battery life and an interactive interface, for a similar price.
Xiaomi 12 Pro is determined to compete with Apple, Samsung and OnePlus.
Xiaomi smartphones are affordable and high quality. The company is known for building their customer base in India, and other regions of Asia over the years. Xiaomi’s new flagship phone, Mi 12 Pro is a strategy to keep up this trend.
