Xiaomi 12 Pro has been on the market for the past six months, and today the company reintroduced the device with a new chipset – a 4nm Dimensity 9000+ by Mediatek. This is the only change Xiaomi brought on the table, as the phone keeps its 4,600 mAh battery with 120W fast charging, impressive cameras and excellent display.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity has a mighty CPU with one prime Cortex-X2 core at 3.2 GHz, three Cortex-A710 performance cores and a quartet of Cortex-A510 efficiency units. The GPU is Mali-G710 MC10.
The trio on the back remains unchanged with 50MP main, 50MP ultrawide and 50MP 2x telephoto cameras. The phone will ship with MIUI 13, based on Android 12.
When the Xiaomi 12 Pro arrived in December, it was among the first phones on the market with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Now the Dimensity edition is the outright first with Mediatek’s new top chip. Unfortunately, the 12 Pro Dimensity Edition is highly unlikely to escape the domestic market.
Similarly, competitors Oppo and vivo launched versions of their H1 flagships, the Find X5 Pro and X80 Pro, with Dimensity 9000 chips in China, while global units are only available with a Qualcomm chip.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition is available in two colors – Black and Blue. Pre-orders will begin tomorrow, July 5, at CNY3,999 ($600) for the 8/128 GB version and CNY4,499 ($670) for the 12/256 GB option.
