Xiaomi unveiled the Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12X on December 28 for China, since there is no Global version yet. The company is expected to bring the phones to the global market and this seems to be approaching, as the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro have now been identified to do the certification routine outside of China. Because the previous mobile I have is the Xiaomi Mi 10 8 / 128GB Global, with a single sim and a custom ROM from Xiaomi.eu, I said not to make the same mistake and to wait when and if Xiaomi wants to release the Xiaomi 12 Pro 12/256 in international version, so I got the Chinese one. After all, I intent to install a custom ROM from Xiaomi.eu, so there was no reason to wait. So at the first opportunity, with the help of a coupon I found from GizTop, I bought the Xiaomi 12 Pro 12 / 256GB, a store I had already tried with the Xiaomi Redmi watch 2, which came to me WITHOUT customs, so I was expecting the same done with the mobile, as it was done.
At the time I ordered it, the store had a nice coupon, which dropped a bit the price, so I used it. But even now, the price is very good and for sure much lower from the prices that the global versions is said that will have.. The purchase was made and all I had to do was wait for it to come with post. The mobile did not last long and came, as I have already told you, WITHOUT a customs problem.
The phone comes in a black box, where at the top it says 12 in capital letters, while at the bottom, you will see that it mentions the Xiaomi 12 Pro model and that the sound is in collaboration with Harman Kardon. On the side it says some technical features, such as the 12 / 256GB version, the largest version, released for the Xiaomi 12 Pro series. Opening the box inside you will find the mobile of course, a pin for the SIM, a charger with a Chinese power plug 120W, a Type-C cable and a transparent silicone case. The phone comes with Google Playstore pre-installed from GizTop. Note that the mobile is the Chinese version, so it has only English/Chinese language. Of course, after the custom ROM came out on Xiaomi.eu, and if you unlock the bootloader, you go through it and you have all languages that are support it from the custom ROM.
But let’s see the technical characteristics of the mobile …

The Xiaomi 12 Pro supports 120W wired charging, which as Xiaomi tells us, should fully charge the battery of the mobile in just 15 minutes. In the video, however, I show you that this is not true and it takes another 7 minutes. Of course you will tell me, the mobile comes with a charger that all the other global versions do not include and it is only 7 minutes more, so why all this fuss!? Just pointing out the differences between reality and what Xiaomi mentions to us. Because many expecially Youtubers, use the ready-made photos provided by the company to make their videos, thus essentially showing something that may not be true, since they do not have the final product, I’m showing you what really applies, not ready-made photos posted by companies!
The Xiaomi 12 Pro has 3 cameras on the back and one on the front as a selfie in a hole and not below the screen.

These are the settings of the camera app
The mobile should also point out here that it is NOT warming up! Because I also heard this from the ready-made images given by the companies, if you do not have a product, DO NOT say you want it! It is not right to misinform the world. In fact, if I compare it to the Mi 10, the 12 Pro is cooler. I’m waiting for you to make a video where I will unlock the mobile bootloader to pass the ROM through Xiaomi.eu, but this will happen in the next few days as soon as I find some time. In the meantime, watch a video I prepared for you for the Xiaomi 12 Pro. Yes, I’m not talking, but I’m telling you why. I immediately hope you subscribe to my YouTube channel, click Like on the two videos and share them, so that the truth is learned everywhere!
If you want to get the Xiaomi 12 Pro, definitely at a lower price than the one that will be released in Europe, when it is released, you can get it from GizTop as I did, of course WITHOUT a customs problem!
