It is rumored that Xiaomi will launch the first phone powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 898 chipset before the end of the year. The upcoming flagship is expected to debut as the Xiaomi 12 and could be a direct successor to the vanilla Xiaomi Mi 11. New evidence discovered by Xiaomi tipper Kacper Skrzypek suggests that the Xiaomi 12 will be joined by a smaller flagship phone called the 12X.
According to Skrzypek, the upcoming Xiaomi 12X is codenamed “Psyche” and will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 processor. Although it is not clear if the phone will be launched globally, the tipper claims that it will not be launched in India.
The “Mini” flagship is said to have a 6.28-inch FHD + AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10 certification. It’s also tipped to have a 50 MP main camera, just like the Mi 11 Ultra. However, it is still unknown whether the Xiaomi 12X will use the exact same ISOCELL GN2 sensor as Xiaomi’s best Android phone.

There is no word on when the Xiaomi 12X will be announced, though there is a small chance that it may break the cover with the Xiaomi 12 sometime next month. In addition to the Xiaomi 12 and 12X, the Xiaomi 12 series is also expected to include Pro and Ultra models. Last year, the Xiaomi Mi 11 launched in China in late December as the world’s first Snapdragon 888-powered phone. It made its global debut in January.
