TL;DR

  • Xiaomi has confirmed a launch event on December 28 for the Xiaomi 12 series.
  • The company says the standard model will be a smaller flagship.
  • It also posted an image featuring the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro.

Now Xiaomi has the Weibo to announce a December 28 launch event in China at 7:30 p.m. Beijing time (6:30 a.m. ET). The company also clarified in the post that the Xiaomi 12 is a “small” flagship (following previously leaked dimensions), while the Xiaomi 12 Pro is an “all-round” flagship phone.

The attached invitation poster from Xiaomi also gives us a look at the two phones, with a notable difference in size between the devices. You can view the poster below.

Xiaomi hasn’t revealed any specs yet, but we’re expecting the aforementioned Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC in at least one phone, 67W or higher wired charging, and 120Hz OLED displays. Leaked dimensions via frequent tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer point out that the vanilla model is just 152.7mm tall, making it slightly larger than the Galaxy S21 but smaller than the Galaxy S20 FE and Redmi Note 10.

This may not be the only announcement of the day, as the MIUI Weibo Account name-dropped the MIUI 13 update. MIUI updates in recent years have been buggy affairs on some phones, but the post specifically mentions a focus on speed and stability.
