The Xiaomi 12T Pro promises to be a game changer and has an edge over market leaders Samsung and Apple
Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi is known for its product philosophy that offers latest technology and reliable performance at an affordable price. With its impressive image processing systems and rapid charging abilities, Xiaomi products succeeded in the past in experiencing an edge over the market leaders, Samsung and Apple. The Xiaomi 12T Pro also is a promising attempt in this line.
With a starting price of £699, it imposes a serious threat to Samsung’s entry-level Galaxy S22, the OnePlus 10 Pro, and the Motorola’s Edge 30 Ultra. The mighty 200MP main camera, 120W fast charging, adaptive 120Hz AMOLED screen, and a powerful 5,000mAh battery are the highlights of this flagship product.
The classic design of the Xiaomi 12T Pro gives a utilitarian look to it. The phone offers a design upgrade with respect to its predecessor, the 12 Pro. The construction is in such a way that the plastic middle frame is sandwiched between two pieces of glass appearing at the front and the back. The Xiaomi 12T Pro has Gorilla Glass 5 at the front as against the 12 Pro’s Gorilla Glass Victus. Therefore, the level of resistance may not be the same.

Similarly, as it comes without an IP rating, we are not sure about its dust or water resistance capability. The color options available are black, blue and silver. This new version has a flat screen rather than a curved one, with prominent bezels along the edge. 12T Pro measures 163.1 x 75.9 x 8.6 mm and weighs 205 grams. The 6.67-inch size AMOLED screen provides 1220 x 2712 pixels of resolution. Overall, the phone feels solid and well-constructed.
The screen quality is commendable with the AMOLED panel having excellent contrast with over 68 billion colours and HDR10+, and a sharp 1220x27127p resolution. The screen offers a maximum of 120Hz refresh rate which is adaptive in nature. In other words, it can switch from 30Hz to 60Hz to 90Hz and to the maximum rate of 120Hz and save some battery life, without adjusting the settings manually.
The Xiaomi 12T Pro is based on Qualcomm’s most advanced Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. The 12T Pro comes with either 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage, or with a 12GB RAM and 256GB storage option. The phone runs on Android 12 but with an improved MIUI 13 which provides better RAM management, CPU utilization and more effective storage use.
Xiaomi 12T Pro: 200 MP Charmer
The most attractive feature of this phone is its main camera which has whopping 200-megapixel resolution. It can take 8K resolution video (at 24fps). It has an 8 MP (ultrawide) + 2 MP (macro) along with it. The front camera has a 20 MP (wide) sensor that is used for video calls and selfies.
The 5,000 mAh battery offers ample battery life and is also quick to charge, thanks to the 120W HyperCharge technology. With 120W wired charging, you can power it up in 19 minutes, and a fast charger also is available.
Wireless charging is missing, a desirable feature of the modern era. Xiaomi has paid special attention to the sound department of the 12T Pro in association with Dolby and Harman Kardon. Settings for Dolby Atmos and a full-featured equalizer will take the sound experience to the next level.
