The Capital City of Beijing, China – July 4, 2021 – A well-known tech news page named Ice Universe mentioned that the Snapdragon 895 may arrive earlier. Since Xiaomi is known to be the first smartphone company to use the latest high-end chip from Qualcomm, we assume that the Mi 12 may become available in early December or mid-December.
To remember, in 2018, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 855 before the year ends. Meanwhile, the Snapdragon 865 was announced in similar passion. It’s been this kind of approach they are doing every year. But this cycle was broke in 2020. Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 888 in late 2020, but Xiaomi released the Mi 11 on December 28, 2021, and had the sale on that day at 10 PM. At that moment, we speculate that Xiaomi may do the same thing this year.
So, we are 100% sure that it’s the Mi 12 that will be released. It’s been a constant key selling point every year to hold and use the very high-end chip by Xiaomi. So, it came as no surprise when this kind of news came in.
Similarly, Chen Jin, General Manager of Lenovo has previously stated that its latest flagship phone will arrive with Snapdragon 895 and will launch before New Year’s day in 2022. So, Xiaomi might also be in line with a similar launch date.
Above all, all pieces are adding up, so we are looking forward to some new leaks from our tipster on Weibo. As of now, “Xiaomi Mi 12 may become available in early December or mid-December” is still a theory, not a fact.
