Shortly after the announcement of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset in May 2022, folks over at Xiaomiui spotted a device with model number “2201212UG” codenamed “Diting”. It was speculated to be the upcoming Xiaomi 12T Pro powered by the new Snapdragon chipset. However, the details couldn’t be confirmed as the listing did not reveal its model name.
Xiaomiui has once again tracked down the same device on the IMEI database. This time, it reveals its moniker as the Xiaomi 12T Pro. Xiaomi is expected to use this naming for the global markets, while it may debut as the Redmi K50S Pro in China. The Redmi K50S Pro was also doing the rounds on CMIIT and China’s 3C certification websites, suggesting that the launch is near. Industry pundits believe the Redmi K50S Pro, a.k.a. the Xiaomi 12T Pro, could go on sale in August 2022. Let’s see what the Xiaomi 12T Pro would bring to the table.
