Even after the iPhone 13 series launch, Xiaomi hasn’t taken out the most powerful bunny from their hat yet. We’re talking about the flagship killer Xiaomi Mi 12, which is slated to be released in 2021.

However, Xiaomi cannot stop the rumours mills surrounding the upcoming flagship killer Mi 12. According to the sources, three new models appeared in the MIUI code, code-named “Munch”, “Taoyao” and “Zijin”. These three models belong to the Mi 12 series, but not Mi 12, Mi 12 Pro and Mi 12 Ultra, but mid-range positioning products mainly for overseas markets (especially India).

Taoyao is said to correspond to Mi 12 Lite, and Zijin corresponds to Mi 12 Lite Zoom. They are both equipped with Snapdragon 778G chip (SM7325), with a 1080P resolution, 120Hz high screen, and fingerprint on the screen.

It has also been said that Zijin is a China-only device while Taoyao is a China and Global Device.

The Mi 11 was Xiaomi’s flagship phone in 2021, but the Mi 12 isn’t likely to be its successor.

Following a report by XDA Developers, Xiaomi has confirmed that it is removing the Mi branding, which is exclusively used outside of China, in order to simplify its brand. As a result, the Xiaomi 12 is projected to be the new flagship globally (except China).

The company said in a statement. “This change will unify our global brand presence and close the perception gap between the brand and its products. This change may take some time to take effect in all regions.”

What is the release date for the Xiaomi 12?

Looking at the previous pattern of the Mi series launched, Xiaomi 12 can be launched somewhere around December (2021) in China and if we talk about Xiaomi 12 (Global Variant) to be launched around March or April (2022). 

What will be the priced of Xiaomi 12?

There’s no official price for the Xiaomi 12, but we believe it will be somewhere between $900 – $1000. When the new model arrives, we hope Xiaomi can retain the same price tag as the Mi 11.
