- Xiaomi has announced the release of their newest devices, the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro.
- The phones were announced in China, but the prices for Europe have been leaked.
- The Xiaomi 12 will cost 899 Euros, while the Pro version will cost 1099 Euros.
- Both versions are expected to be released in Europe later this month.
The sources for this information are usually pretty reliable, so it’s likely that we’ll be seeing the Xiaomi 12 flagship smartphones in some of the biggest markets at around the same time.
As we wait to see if anything happens, a new leak today lets us know the actual prices for two phones – exact figures, unlike earlier reports only about ranges. The purported Xiaomi 12 is estimated to start at 899 euros, while the Xiaomi 12 Pro will go on the market for 1,099 euros.
Obviously, these prices are for the base models, but if you want additional RAM and/or storage, you will pay more. Although the base price of Xiaomi’s 12 smartphones is €50 more than the Galaxy S22‘s, the base price of Xiaomi’s 12 Pro is €50 more than the Galaxy S22+.
That’s certainly something if it pans out and the ability to show the Xiaomi brand name intends to shed the “bang for the buck” instincts (letting that market go to Poco and Redmi) and fully aligned with the high-end. Let’s see if this new strategy proves successful.
