Xiaomi also includes a two-year warranty, which is standard in certain but not all regions of the world. Additionally, within the first six months of purchase, customers can get a free screen replacement. It’s worth noting that the Xiaomi 12 Pro comes with an international warranty, which means that a phone purchased in one region can be serviced in any of Xiaomi’s other supported nations.
The Xiaomi 12 series is available in three colour options—gray, purple, and blue. Customers purchasing any of the three Xiaomi 12 models also get a bundled three months of YouTube Premium for free, allowing you to watch videos without ads and download them for offline use. The subscription also includes YouTube Music Premium.
The Xiaomi 12 is priced at $750/€800 for the base 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage, the 12 Pro begins at $1,000/€1,000 for the 8GB + 256GB storage variant, while the lower end 12X costs $650/€700 for an 8GB + 128GB unit.
