Xiaomi’s new beasts release processors and cameras up to 200 megapixels

The new Xiaomi 12T and Xiaomi 12T Pro are here, aiming to conquer the high end based on cutting-edge specifications and adjusted prices.

Xiaomi has made Munich the stage for one of the most important presentations of the year. The German city has participated in the arrival of the new Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro, two smartphones aimed at the high end, which take over after the popular 11T and 11T Pro launched last year.

This new generation brings crucial improvements in several sections, including the processor and the camera. This last aspect is particularly relevant for Xiaomi, since the Xiaomi 12T Pro is its first mobile with a camera with 200 megapixel resolution.

But photography is not the only thing that has improved. The company has made sure to pack its latest phones with some of the most advanced specifications available in the market today.

There is hardly any aesthetic difference between Xiaomi 12T and Xiaomi 12T Pro. Both phones build their design using last year’s Xiaomi 11T as a base, with a glass and aluminum body and a rear camera system located in a rectangular module, somehow reminiscent of the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro presented at the beginning of the year.

Both phones have a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen, with Full HD+ resolution and a refresh rate of up to 120 hertz. The screen is completely flat and has a small hole at the top in the middle, where it houses the 20 megapixel front camera.

Speaking of cameras, it is precisely in the photographic system that we have to find the first differences between the two devices. The Xiaomi 12T incorporates a primary 108 megapixel resolution sensor with an f/1.7 aperture and an optical stabilizer. For its part, the Xiaomi 12T Pro raises the bar and is positioned as the brand’s first mobile with a 200 megapixel camera.

Xiaomi 12T design

The 200 megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor is combined with an improved night photography mode and faster focusing thanks to Xiaomi’s ProFocus system.

It also has a 2x zoom, which can take advantage of the large sensor (1/1.22″) to capture higher quality enlarged images.

The rest of the cameras are identical in both: there is a secondary 13-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel macro camera. No trace of telephoto in either model.

Xiaomi wanted to equip its new smartphones with two of the most advanced processors available today. The Xiaomi 12T incorporates the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Ultra, a chip built in the five-nanometer TSMC format and which incorporates a completely renewed GPU structure.

For its part, the Xiaomi 12T Pro has the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, Qualcomm’s most advanced chip, manufactured in the four-nanometer TSMC format. Both models have LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage that can be chosen between 8 or 12 GB and 128 or 256 GB versions respectively.

The battery capacity has not changed compared to the last generation, but thanks to the improvements at the processor level, Xiaomi promises us improved autonomy. In this sense, they are 5000 mAh, in both cases supported by a fast charging system up to 120 W maximum power. And yes: the charger is included.

Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro prices and when they can be bought
