Xiaomi 12 Pro gets a Dimensity 9000+ version
Xiaomi 12 Pro has been on the market for the past six months, and today the company reintroduced the device with a new chipset - a 4nm Dimensity 9000+ by Mediatek. Alongside the chipset switch Xiaomi also altered the camera setup and battery.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity has a mighty CPU with one prime Cortex-X2 core at 3.2 GHz, three Cortex-A710 performance cores and a quartet of Cortex-A510 efficiency units. The GPU is Mali-G710 MC10.
The 50MP F/1.9 main camera on the back is carried over from the original Xiaomi 12 Pro, but the ultrawide and telephoto shooters have been downgraded to 13MP and 5MP sensors, respectively.
The battery capacity has seen an increase to 5,160mAh, but the charging speed is downgraded to 67W. This still feels like a better balance than what the original 12 Pro had, though.
The phone will ship with MIUI 13, based on Android 12.
When the Xiaomi 12 Pro arrived in December, it was among the first phones on the market with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Now the Dimensity edition is the outright first with Mediatek's new top chip. Unfortunately, the 12 Pro Dimensity Edition is highly unlikely to escape the domestic market.
Similarly, competitors Oppo and vivo launched versions of their H1 flagships, the Find X5 Pro and X80 Pro, with Dimensity 9000 chips in China, while global units are only available with a Qualcomm chip.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition is available in two colors - Black and Blue. Pre-orders will begin tomorrow, July 5, at CNY3,999 ($600) for the 8/128 GB version and CNY4,499 ($670) for the 12/256 GB option.

You're insane if you think the small downgrade for the camera setup costs them $250 less. Find me one phone where the manufacturer spent that much on the entire camera setup. (Because not any whole setup is worth anywhere near that, let alone a ...

Nice phone, that's not supported where I live. Doubt it's worthwhile for Xiaomi to get US radios for out wavelengths.
