Xiaomi took the wraps off its flagship smartphones, the Xiaomi 12S, Xiaomi 12S Pro, Xiaomi 12S Pro (Dimensity Edition), and Xiaomi 12S Ultra on July 4, 2022, in China. Reports suggest the Chinese giant has a few more smartphones up its sleeve. It is expected to release the Xiaomi 12T and the Xiaomi 12T Pro, which will deliver similar performance as the 12S lineup of devices, but at a lower price. The vanilla Xiaomi 12T and the Xiaomi 12T Pro will replace the Xiaomi 11T and Xiaomi 11T Pro respectively, which were introduced back in 2021.
Xiaomi 12T Series: Specifications (Rumoured)
The Xiaomi 12T devices codenamed “Plato” and “Diting” are currently under testing and are expected to launch soon globally. The device with “Plato” codename is expected to be the vanilla Xiaomi 12T as spotted by Xiaomiui on the MtkList in the Mi code. The device listed was powered by the MediaTek mobile processor. Now, a report by tipster Kacper Skrzypek suggests that the Xiaomi 12T, aka “Plato”, will come with MediaTek’s Dimensity 8100-Ultra chipset. So, it would be fair to assume that the top dog Xiaomi 12T Pro may come powered by Qualcomm’s latest and most powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. For the uninitiated, it’s the same chipset that also powers the Xiaomi 12S series of smartphones.
We had earlier reported that the Xiaomi 12T series will come with a 120Hz AMOLED display, up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage, a primary camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation), and 120W fast charging support, among other features. The vanilla Xiaomi 12T was also spotted recently on the FCC certification website, hinting that the launch is imminent. The FCC listing reveals that it will get connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 5G (7 bands), GPS, and an IR blaster. It also confirmed it will be available in 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage configurations.

Furthermore, it is speculated that these smartphones won’t be using the Xiaomi 12T moniker in Xiaomi’s home country, China. Instead, they may arrive as the Redmi K50S and the Redmi K50S Pro. The brand may launch the vanilla Xiaomi 12T soon in India to compete against the likes of the Realme GT Neo 3 and the OnePlus 10R, which come with the Dimensity 8100 processor. Expect the prices to be between ₹30,000 and ₹35,000 when it reaches the shores of India.
