After launching in China at the end of 2021, Xiaomi’s flagship 12-series is set to say “hello” to the rest of the globe. The global launch event will begin at 12 p.m. GMT and will be streamed live below.
The core three — the Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro, and 12X – as well as a sprinkling of smart devices, should be on display. We doubt that the reported Xiaomi 12 Ultra (or that small variant) will be shown today, thus the Pro model’s triple 50MP sensors will be the greatest camera we see from Xiaomi today.
In terms of smart devices, Xiaomi stated that the Xiaomi Watch S1 Active will be included in the launch. This is a sportier version of last year’s S1 watch. There’s a good chance we’ll see some additional smart devices at today’s event, including some lower-end phones (the Redmi 10C seems ready to go).
PS. Another Xiaomi event is taking place this week: the Redmi K50 will be unveiled in China on March 17th (Thursday). Some of these are likely to be renamed as Poco F4 variants for the global market (we know there is at least a Poco F4 and an F4 Pro in the works). The Redmi 10 will also be released in India on Thursday.
