Xiaomi’s new flagship series has hit the market today in China and it was well received by fans. According to a new report, the company sold about $283 million worth of the Xiaomi 12 series in just 5 minutes. But there is a trick this time.
The Xiaomi 12 series which comprises of the Xiaomi 12X, Xiaomi 12, and Xiaomi 12 Pro brought some changes its predecessor did not. Unlike the Xiaomi Mi 11 series, the company decided to bring the new flagship in different screen sizes.

This makes it possible for users to have more options to choose from. For context, the previously released Mi 11 series all came with same 6.81-inch screen size. Meaning, users who prefer a different screen size has no option.
But, Xiaomi correctly this mistake and made the screen of the Xiaomi 12 smaller than that of the Xiaomi 12 Pro. Users who prefer smaller screen can buy the Xiaomi 12 while those who prefer bigger screens can buy the Xiaomi 12 Pro.
Same rules applies to the pricing of the devices in China. The price of the Xiaomi 12 starts at $699 for the base model while the price of the Xiaomi 12 Pro starts at $899. So, if you want to experience flagship features in a smaller display and at a more affordable price, the Xiaomi 12 will be your device.
Words on the street also has it that the company will announce a Xiaomi 12 Ultra by 2022. But there is no official launch date for this device yet.
The Xiaomi 12 series is now available for purchase online and offline in China. We still don’t know when the company will launch it globally yet but it shouldn’t be too long now.
