Xiaomi 12X Overview
In terms of design, the Xiaomi 12X is identical to the Xiaomi 12. The 12X has the same metal and glass body with a rectangular rear camera module as the 12.
The frame is curved and the device is as compact as the Xiaomi 12, with the same dimensions (152.7mm x 69.6mm x 8.2mm). However, the 12X is slightly lighter by a few grams.
The device has stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon. One of which is on the bottom side, along with the primary microphone, and the USB-C port. The top houses the other speaker, the secondary microphone, and the IR blaster.
The 12X has a 6.28-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with 120Hz dynamic refresh rate support. It is not an LTPO display like its Pro counterpart is.
However, the Xiaomi 12X (and the Xiaomi 12) is the first smartphone display we know of featuring 12-bit colour. It means that the display is capable of showing more than 68 billion colours. Oddly, the most expensive Pro variant only has a 10-bit display panel.
Moving on, the display features Corning Gorilla Glass Victus and supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. Currently, Dolby Vision is the only HDR standard that supports 12-bit colours.
The chipset is the only major factor that differentiates the Xiaomi 12X from the Xiaomi 12. It comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 5G chipset, as opposed to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
The Snapdragon 870 is a year-old processor that shares many of the same specifications as the Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G from 2020 but is still quite capable.
The Snapdragon 870 has Adreno 650 GPU and an Octa-core CPU with one 3.2GHz Kryo 585 (Cortex-A77) cores, three 2.42GHz Kryo 585 (Cortex-A77) cores, and four 1.80GHz Kryo 585 (Cortex-A55) cores.
Xiaomi 12X has LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage and comes in two variants: 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB. However, only the latter is currently available in Nepal. Moreover, unlike the Xiaomi 12 Pro’s quad speakers, the Xiaomi 12X features a dual speaker tuned by Harman Kardon that supports Dolby Atmos.
To help cool down the CPU, the Xiaomi 12 series packs a cooling system bolstered by a large 2600 sq. mm vapour chamber and multiple layers of graphite.
The triple rear camera features a 50MP (Sony IMX766) main camera, 13MP ultra-wide angle camera, and a 5MP telemacro camera. It’s the same camera array we saw on the Xiaomi 12.
The front has a 32MP camera for selfies. The Xiaomi 12X is also capable of shooting 8K videos at 24fps.
Battery and OS
Powering the device is a 4500mAh that supports 67W fast charging via USB-C. Sadly, it does not support wireless charging or reverse charging.
Unfortunately, the Xiaomi 12X does not boot on the latest Android 12. Instead, it comes with Android 11 out-of-the-box topped with MIUI 13.
Xiaomi 12X Price in Nepal and Availability
The Xiaomi 12X price in Nepal is Rs. 68,999 (8/256GB). It is available at all Xiaomi-authorized outlets in Nepal. This price is a discounted price for Dashain and is valid until October 3 only.
After October 3, the price will go back to Rs. 71,999. Initially, it was priced at Rs. 76,999. Then in early August, Xiaomi dropped Rs. 5,000.
|Xiaomi 12X||Price in Nepal||Dashain Offer (Until October 3)|
|8GB+256GB||Rs. 71999||Rs. 68999|
The Xiaomi 12X (and the Xiaomi 12) is the world’s first smartphone to sport a 12-bit colour display. The device has a striking resemblance to the Xiaomi 12. In addition to the display, it retains the same design, cameras, and battery.
The chipset is the only significant difference between the two, aside from minor details such as the lack of support for wireless charging and reverse charging, as well as Xiaomi’s proprietary AI algorithms for the camera.
