While all eyes are pointed at the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Ultra, the latest leak spotted by Kacper Skrzypek over at Twitter points to a third member of the upcoming Xiaomi 12 series smartphones, the Xiaomi 12X, codenamed Psyche.
Say "hello" to the #Xiaomi12X (codename: psyche, not for India).— Kacper Skrzypek 🇵🇱 (@kacskrz) November 18, 2021
Snapdragon 870, 50 Mpx main camera, display 145.4 x 65.4 mm (6,28") AMOLED HDR10 FOD 120Hz FullHD+ (1080x2400) pic.twitter.com/WOjat1mPnB
The mystery phone, now named the Xiaomi 12X, was spotted in an IMEI certification list as 2112123AG model number, codename Psyche. The phone should pack a 6.28-inch AMOLED screen with 2400x1080 resolution, HDR10 support, and a 120Hz refresh rate.
It should be powered by Snapdragon 870 SoC, and come with a 50-megapixel main camera.
This is far from flagship status that the Xiaomi 12 and the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will bring, including the Snapdragon 898 SoC, 100W fast charging, Leica-branded camera and more.
The Xiaomi 12 series is expected to be announced by the end of this year or early next year. It is possible that Xiaomi might have a smartphone based on Qualcomm's new chipset by the end of this year.
