Xiaomi 12T: Latest leak of Xiaomi’s upcoming budget phone features new 108 MP camera and 1.5K display


As revealed by Xiaomiui, the Xiaomi 12T, codenamed “Plato”, will feature a display with a resolution of 1220×2712. That’s somewhere between FHD+ and QHD+. It’s worse than the Redmi K50 series’ QHD+ displays but better than the Xiaomi 11T’s. That panel can be expected to be a 120 Hz AMOLED. The 12T, as we previously reported, looks set to be equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 8100. Sources claim this could be a “Dimensity 8100 Ultra”, perhaps like OnePlus’s Dimensity 8100-Max. Additionally, it’s expected to ship with up to 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.

Xiaomi is yet to confirm or even tease the Xiaomi 12T series, but the duo can be expected to debut in September at the latest. The Xiaomi 12T Pro is tipped to be a global rebadge of the upcoming Redmi K50 Ultra or Redmi K50S Pro. The Xiaomi 12T, on the other hand, looks set to be a global exclusive, and will likely not even be sold in India.

(Reference: Xiaomi) Coming soon is the Xiaomi 12T series. There will soon be a Xiaomi 12T series. A new leak has now provided more information about the stock Xiaomi 12T than any previous leak, with key revelations including a 1.5K display and a probable MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Ultra. The pair is anticipated to launch in August or September. According to rumors, Xiaomi will introduce its 12T series either this month or the following. Details of the standard Xiaomi 12T now seem to have leaked, despite the Xiaomi 12T Pro having gotten far more attention up to this point.

  • Camera-wise, the Xiaomi 12T looks set to be one of the first devices to feature Samsung’s 108 MP ISOCELL HM6. The Xiaomi 11T was equipped with the HM2. The ISOCELL HM6 is an interesting choice, as it’s smaller than HM2, with smaller pixels as well. Comparing both sensors, the older HM2 flat-out appears to be better. Either way, the 108 MP camera will be joined by an 8 MP ultra-wide shooter, a 2 MP macro camera, and the 20 MP selfie camera from the Redmi K50 Pro.
