Xiaomi Mi 12 rumours have started coming in and the phone is said to be powered by an unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 895 SoC. It’s also said to feature a 200-megapixel main camera sensor — and all of it sounds rather impressive. Xiaomi was once the first manufacturer to cause the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC to smartphones with its Mi 11 in December final year.

The outline also states that the Mi 12 will feature a 200-megapixel primary camera from Samsung and Olympus.
This rumoured 200-megapixel sensor is said to use 16-in-1 pixel binning to output 12-megapixel images with large pixels. There might be an Olympus logo on the camera module of the phone as mannered.
Lastly, the outline mentions that the Mi 12 will feature a curved display with a unmarried hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera.
Xiaomi has not shared any information approximately a Mi 11 successor and neither has Qualcomm said anything approximately a Snapdragon 895 SoC.
