The Xiaomi 12S line has just been announced, but another spin-off of the Xiaomi 12 series, the Xiaomi 12T, may be coming soon.
This is good news for Xiaomi fans, as the Xiaomi 12S model is only available in China, while the Xiaomi 12T and its siblings have a wider range of launch plans.
Below is a detailed description of everything we’ve heard about these phones. This includes landing time, cost, and specifications and features that may be installed. We will update this article as new information becomes available.
Next, I created a wishlist of what I wanted to see from the Xiaomi 12T to make the right upgrades and worthwhile purchases.

- what is that? Next Upper Midrange Xiaomi Phone
- When will you be out? Probably before the end of 2022
- how much does it cost? Expect midrange prices
Xiaomi 12T: Release Date and Price
It’s not clear when the Xiaomi 12T will land, but since the Xiaomi 11T was announced in September 2021 and launched in October, a similar schedule is possible for the Xiaomi 12T in 2022.
There is also evidence of such timing as the Xiaomi phone, which is believed to be a 12T, has been certified by FCC (Opens in a new tab) (Federal Communications Commission), and it usually happens within a few months of launch.
Nothing is said about the price, but it could be consistent with the Xiaomi 11T, which started at £ 499. Perhaps there is also the Xiaomi 12T Pro, which could start at around £ 599 (about $ 830, A $ 1,130) following the Xiaomi 11T Pro.
Don’t expect to see any of these phones in the US as Xiaomi doesn’t really exist. However, it can be sold in the UK and also in Australia.
Xiaomi 12T: News and leaks
I haven’t heard much about the Xiaomi 12T yet, but leakers and journalists @kacskrz (Opens in a new tab) Claims that the phone will be equipped with the Dimensity 8100-Ultra chipset. This is not a high-end chipset.

However, the leaker contacted me about a week ago. Mukuru Sharma (Opens in a new tab) The Xiaomi 12T will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8Plus Gen1 chipset.
So it’s possible that one of these sources is wrong, or the Snapdragon model is actually the Xiaomi 12T Pro, because the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 is the top-end chipset.
According to Sharma, the phone will have 8GB of RAM (although there’s also a 12GB version), 128GB or 256GB of storage, a 120Hz AMOLED screen, 120W charging, and a camera with optical image stabilization. Android 12.
Xiaomi 12T: What we want to see
I’m still not sure what the Xiaomi 12T and Xiaomi 12T Pro will offer, but I hope Xiaomi has made the following changes:
1. Less heat
A review of the Xiaomi 11T Pro found that performing demanding tasks can be quite hot. Not only is this difficult to hold, but it can also limit performance until the phone cools down.
It doesn’t make sense if you can’t get the most out of your high-end chipsets, so I hope Xiaomi can solve it with the 12T line.
The Xiaomi 11T Pro’s Snapdragon 888 was known for overheating, but the chipsets rumored to be available here are not so well known, so it’s quite possible that it will happen.
2. More properly placed fingerprint sensor
The Xiaomi 11T line places the fingerprint sensor on the side of the phone, but a review of the Xiaomi 11T Pro found that it can be difficult to stretch for small-handed users, so this for Xiaomi I would like to reconsider 12T.
Ideally, the fingerprint sensor should be placed under the display, like most remote high-end mobile phones.
3. Slicker software
Xiaomi’s MIUI (software on Android) has never had the most sophisticated interface ever. So I’m sure MIUI won’t go anywhere, but I hope it will improve with the Xiaomi 12T.
We believe that there are few pre-installed apps, few annoying security features (such as how Xiaomi 11T scans newly installed apps), and few bugs.
4. Wireless charging
This is an obvious addition to the Xiaomi 12T line, or at least the Pro model, as neither the Xiaomi 11T nor the Xiaomi 11T Pro have wireless charging. Wireless charging is often more convenient and preferable to wired charging. At the very least, it’s useful to have options.
5. Fewer fingerprint magnets
Another problem we had with the Xiaomi 11T Pro was that the back tended to attract a lot of fingerprints. So I hope the Xiaomi 12T line will deal with it, probably by changing the materials and colors used on the back.
If the Xiaomi 12T does everything, it could be one of the best Xiaomi phones.
