The Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro are going global today and they arrive with several commitments that will make fans feel better about long-term ownership. The cheaper Xiaomi 12X is also getting some assurances, but not the full suite.

Xiaomi is promising 3 Android OS updates and 4 years of security patches for the 12 and 12 Pro. Note that both launch with Android 12 and MIUI 13 and both are powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The 12X, which is powered by the older Snapdragon 870, did not get such a commitment.

And yes, Sony mobile is still a meme. Change my mind, fanboy.

What's cringy? My opinion? How so? At least explain your point of view instead of throwing baseless claims at me. All I had to say that Sony mobile is a meme and then all the arshurt Sony fanbois come out to defend their beloved brand. Next time...

It's basically a fact that Xiaomi sucks at updating their phones. They kinda manage it with Chinese ROM, but global versions are downright terrible and below any standard.
