OnePlus 10 Pro 5G effect: Xiaomi tries to steal OnePlus’s thunder, announces 12 Pro coming soon to India
Xiaomi 12 Pro 5G is coming soon to India, Xiaomi announced just minutes before OnePlus’s scheduled OnePlus 10 Pro 5G and OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2 launch event. The company took to Twitter to tease the launch, obviously, in a bid to steal OnePlus’s thunder. No further details have been shared except that “life is a show, let’s make it worth the wait.” The Xiaomi 12 Pro is every bit a high-end flagship phone as the OnePlus 10 Pro matching it on every hardware level, though, chances are that Xiaomi might undercut OnePlus in pricing. The OnePlus 10 Pro price in India starts at Rs 66,999. The Xiaomi 12 Pro starts at CNY 4,699 (roughly Rs 56,250) in China.

For photography, the 12 Pro has three cameras on the back – a 50MP main (Sony IMX 707) sensor behind an f/1.9 aperture lens with OIS, a 50MP ultrawide-angle with 115-degree field-of-view, and another 50 MP portrait sensor behind an f/1.9 lens.

The 12 Pro is part of the Xiaomi 12 series which also boots the entry-level Xiaomi 12X and vanilla Xiaomi 12. There is no word on both these phones, yet, but the 12 Pro is confirmed to come to India. When? We don’t know. But hopefully, we will get more information soon. As for the timing of the launch announcement, well, all we can say is, well done Xiaomi. Here’s hoping the product justifies the banter. Watch this space for more.
