The Xiaomi 12 has it all. From its beautiful screen to its high power, it ticks all the boxes of a good premium smartphone. It is now becoming cheaper by going from 899 euros to 791.91 euros in its 256 GB version.
Xiaomi recently presented its premium smartphones, including one that is slow to show up: the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. If you want to have a high-end experience without shelling out more than 1,000 euros, the latter is not the one for you. It is rather the Xiaomi 12 which is the most balanced, since it has a muscular technical sheet for a more accessible price today, with this reduction of almost 110 euros.
The Xiaomi 12, in a nutshell
- It is equipped with an AMOLED FHD + screen at 120 Hz
- Powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
- A versatile photo module
- And very fast charging
Launched at 899 euros, the 256 GB version of the Xiaomi 12 is currently on sale at 791.91 euros on the manufacturer’s website, thanks to an immediate discount of 20 euros (once in the basket) and by using the coupon from 10% discount.

The most balanced of the premium range
The Xiaomi 12 is displayed at a lower price than its counterparts, without making too many concessions. It provides good sensations to its user, especially in terms of grip. The Xiaomi 12 becomes more compact than before, thanks to a width of 69.9 mm (compared to 74.6 mm on the Mi 11) and a 6.28-inch screen (compared to 6.8 inches on the Mi 11). It also becomes lighter, with 16 grams less on the scale.
Aesthetically, it has nothing to envy to the Pro model because it also benefits from exemplary finishes. If the Pro model offers a WQHD + definition, the Xiaomi 12 has a Full HD + screen. It remains an excellent panel with balanced colors and good brightness thanks to OLED technology. The panel even offers a refresh rate of 120 Hz for better fluidity in the interface. It’s very pleasant to watch content, and it’s even more so with the two Harman Kardon speakers, compatible with Dolby Atmos.
The best of Qualcomm in its bowels
Under the hood, the Xiaomi 12 does not disappoint and, like the Xiaomi 12 Pro, offers Qualcomm’s latest chip: the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The classic model, on the other hand, comes with 8 GB of RAM, compared to 12 GB of RAM on the Pro version. The Xiaomi 12 is still efficient on a daily basis. With this configuration, you will be able to launch any application, even greedy, but also 3D games. Note that this smartphone runs on Android 12.
In terms of autonomy, the Xiaomi 12 should last a day thanks to its 4,500 mAh battery. In case of intensive use, it is compatible with a fast charge of 67 W – 120 W for the Pro model – which will allow it to recharge from 0 to 100% in just 39 minutes, according to the brand. Wireless charging is obviously part of it, with a power of 50 W, or 10 W in reverse mode. Finally, on the photo side, there is a main sensor of 50 megapixels, an ultra wide-angle of 13 megapixels and a telemacro of 5 megapixels. The quality should be there thanks to the new tool called CyberFocus, which would make it possible to manage the automatic focus of the camera even better, in particular to always identify the face and the body of the subject.
