Chinese tech giant Xiaomi, held a global launch event recently where it unveiled the much-anticipated Xiaomi 12 series alongside the Xiaomi Watch S1, Watch S1 Active, and the Xiaomi Buds 3T Pro.
The Xiaomi 12 series is made up of the vanilla Xiaomi 12, the Xiaomi 12 Pro, and a more affordable model called Xiaomi 12X.
While we are familiar with the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro which first launched in China in December, the Xiaomi 12X is an entirely new entrant.
The 12X features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 mid-range chip as opposed to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC on the flagship models. As a result of the mid-range chipset onboard, the model is available at a slightly reduced price tag.
Another perk that comes with the Xiaomi 12 series is the free YouTube Premium and YouTube Music Premium access buyers will get for three months, allowing them to stream video ad-free and download some for offline viewing.
