Xiaomi 12X unboxing
A few days ago, the Xiaomi 12 series of new machines were officially released, in addition to Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro, there is also a Xiaomi 12X, which can be said to be the "Snapdragon 870 version" of Xiaomi 12.
The difference lies in the Xiaomi 12's Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 processor, the Xiaomi 12X uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 flagship processor, while not supporting wireless flash charging and wireless reverse charging.
It uses the same small size of Xiaomi 12, with a width of only 69.9mm and a weight of only 180g, the gold standard for one-handed grip. In a side-by-side comparison, the Xiaomi 12X is narrower and has a larger screen than the iPhone 13.
The Xiaomi 12X is available in blue, black, and purple colorways, and the one we have is the purple version with an AG frosted glass back cover that feels great in the hand.
Like the Xiaomi 12, the Xiaomi 12X also has a 6.28-inch screen, and this screen is DisplayMate A+ certified with a 120Hz refresh rate, 1100nit peak brightness, true 10bit display, and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+.
The rear main camera is also 50MP (50MP main + 13MP super wide-angle + telephoto macro). It has a built-in 4500mAh battery and supports 67W wired charging.
In terms of pricing, the Xiaomi 12X is priced at RMB 3,199 for the 8GB+128GB version, RMB 3,499 for the 8GB+256GB version and RMB 3,799 for the 12GB+256GB version, which goes on sale on December 31.
Overall, the Xiaomi 12X starts at 3,199 yuan, which is a full 500 yuan cheaper than the starting price of Xiaomi 12. Despite the absence of Snapdragon 8, it uses the highly acclaimed Snapdragon 870, which not only ensures performance, but even better power consumption.
Together with the top 6.28-inch OLED micro-curved screen of the same Xiaomi 12, it brings great performance whether you are watching short videos, chatting, or playing games on a daily basis.
If you are a small screen party and not too demanding for extreme performance, the Xiaomi 12X is arguably the best model to get at the moment.
