An picture purported to depict the camera island on Xiaomi’s forthcoming 12T Pro surfaced in mid-August, fueling rumours that it will include a 200 MP primary back camera. A new leak from today verifies the appearance of the island and the 200 MP camera by presenting a render of the Xiaomi 12T Pro next to the Redmi Pad.
This information was provided by one of Twitter’s most active tipsters, and it’s fascinating to compare the 12T Pro to the similarly-priced Redmi Pad given that the latter can only boast an 8 MP camera on its back. One belongs to the “T” brand of “cheap flagships,” or “flagship killers,” if you like, while the other is obviously designed to be a budget option.
Despite their differences, both are on the way, and there’s a possibility they may even be revealed simultaneously. According to rumours, the Redmi K50 Ultra, which was released for the Chinese market last month, would be renamed as the Xiaomi 12T Pro, with the primary camera being the sole improvement.
If it happens, the 12T Pro should include a 6.67-inch 1220×2712 144 Hz OLED touchscreen, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 CPU, 8/12 GB of RAM, 128/256/512 GB of storage, an 8 MP ultrawide, a 2 MP macro camera, a 20 MP selfie camera, a 5,000 mAh battery with 120W rapid wired charging, and more.
