Xiaomi 12 Pro has no secrets: the first renders of the device have leaked online, while the protective cases on Weibo also give a clear idea of what to expect from the device. However, the phone could bring with it a last surprise, that is a selfie-camera hidden underneath the display.
This information comes from the speculations of some fans and insiders about videos of the new features of MIUI 13, which appeared in some stock apps of Xiaomi, probably waiting for the launch of the mobile operating system of the Chinese giant. In particular, the…First Look at MIUI 13 shows a device still unknown, i.e. not present on the market, that according to the Xiaomiui portal could be Xiaomi 12 Pro.
According to the videos of MIUI 13, the device will have a slightly curved screen on the four sides, although the curvature should be sweeter than that of Xiaomi 11 series. For the same reason, the top and bottom edge of the phone should be thicker than those of the predecessor.
The most interesting thing, though, is that the phone shown in the videos has a front camera under the display, defined by Xiaomi as CUP, or Camera Under Panel. Since Xiaomi 12 Pro should be the mid-range version of the Xiaomi 12 line, keeping a design rather similar to that of Xiaomi 12…standard, it is possible to use the camera under the display on the latter sm
Some leaks from the past few weeks had established that the entire Xiaomi 12 line would have CUP technology, but a more recent indiscretion reported that no Xiaomi phone will have under-display camera, at least in the 12 series. The technology behind the camera under the screen, if it were to be implemented, will be similar to that of the Xiaomi MIX 4, as the same should be the system adopted for speakers.
However, Xiaomi’s 12th series was due to be presented on December 12, according to many leaders. Since the presentation of smartphones was not held on that date, we will probably see devices for the first time only at the end of the Christmas holidays, December 28.
