Presented at the end of December 2021, Xiaomi 12 began its distribution roster with great curiosity and interest, but without teardowns, we can not say that we know it thoroughly. This has been taken care of by Xiaomi itself, which has followed up on what happened already with the 12 Pro model
Xiaomi 12: from teardown many components in a small space
What then tells us the official disassembly of the new flagship “compact” of Xiaomi? Opening the frosted glass shell, we are immediately in front of the module for 50W wireless charging, while at the top is immediately visible the large 50 MP sensor Sony IMX766, compared to the other two small.
Continuing to remove the top plates, we find the 32 MP selfie camera but also the smaller components (designed specifically for small size), including the brightness sensor and the gyroscope, until you get to the memories LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1, definitely large compared to the form factor of the smartphone.
Towards the end, we come to the housing of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and especially the 4,500 mAh battery, made with new materials in lithium oxide and in addition we also sell the large stereo speakers used, as well as the vapor chamber for cooling.
In short, Xiaomi 12, despite being a top range with compact dimensions, does not give up practically nothing and really seems to want to be able to be progenitor of a category that is increasingly in demand, especially in the Android market.
