And although the lineup is rumored to include the Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro, Xiaomi 12X, and Xiaomi 12 Ultra, only the former two are expected in today’s event. Not only that, alongside, you could also witness the debut of Xiaomi Watch S1.

That’s about it. We don’t know about the inherent software. The chances are thin that it would bear Wear OS and so our bet is on RTOS. And while we are at it, we also speculate the presence of common features like heart rate and SpO2 sensors, GPS, etc.

Anyways, we won’t have to wait much longer to have the full details about the watch. Well, the same goes for the Xiaomi 12 phones.

Swivel to the rear and the back cameras would be led by a 50MP shooter, followed by a 13MP ultrawide clicker, and a 32MP 3x zoom telephoto lens.

Inside, the device will be wielding a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, up to 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage, and a 4500mAh battery. The handset will support 67W fast charging, 30W wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging.

Meanwhile, the Xiaomi 12 Pro will feature a 6.73-inch Samsung E5 AMOLED LTPO screen with 3200×1440 pixel resolution, and a 480Hz touch sampling rate.
