Today in China, Xiaomi held one of the large-scale presentations dedicated to new products. The protagonist of the event was the Xiaomi 12S series, which includes three models. But the company gave another surprise by introducing another smartphone - Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition.


The very name of the device directly indicates that this is a variant of Xiaomi 12 Pro, where the platform from Qualcomm was replaced with a solution from MediaTek. The choice fell on Dimensity 9000+ and this is the first smartphone on the market with it on board. In fact, this is an overclocked version of the Dimensity 9000, created using 4-nanometer technology.


Compared to the “simple” Dimensity 9000, its Plus version brings with it a 5% increase in the performance of the central chip and a 10% increase in the graphics video accelerator. The processor received three clusters of cores, where one Cortex-X2 supercore is overclocked to a frequency of 3.2 GHz (Dimensity 9000 has 3.05 GHz) and the Mali-G710 MC10 graphics subsystem is responsible for graphics processing.

Overclocking the chip cores necessarily affects the increase in heat dissipation, and in order to curb them, Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition offered an improved 3D cooling system. It is promised that after half an hour of playing Genshin Impact, the smartphone case will hardly heat up by more than 45 °.


In addition to changing the hardware platform and improving the cooling, Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition differs from the usual "firmware" in battery capacity and fast charging power. The battery here is 5160 mAh versus 4600 mAh for the Xiaomi 12 Pro, but the charging power was cut from 120 watts to 67 watts. And they also abandoned wireless and reverse charging.


The Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition features a 6.73-inch AMOLED E5 display with LTPO 2.0 technology and QuadHD+ resolution. The screen is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. In addition, the panel is Dolby Vision and HDR10+ certified and peaked at 1500 nits.


Among the changes, it is also worth mentioning the camera from Xiaomi 12S, but without Leica optics. It still includes three sensors, where the main Sony IMX707 at 50 MP, ultra-wide at 13 MP and offered a 5 MP macro sensor. The front camera is the same resolution of 32 megapixels. The Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition features Harman Kardon stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos tuning, Hi-res Audio support, WiFi 6, 5G, and MIUI 13 based on Android 12.

Available Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition in two versions with 8/128 GB and 12/256 GB of memory at a price of $597 and $672 respectively.
