The Xiaomi 12 and its siblings are likely to be exciting and popular phones, but they could all have some feature that could prove to be slightly less popular.
According to the publication ofe Digital Chat Station on Weibo (a Chinese social network), each phone in the Xiaomi 12 range will have a curved screen. This is a slight deviation from Xiaomi Mi 11 range, where the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite had a flat display.
Still, given that the Mi 11 standard and the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra had curved screens it 's no surprise, but it ' s is a decision that won't be popular with everyone, because while curved screens look good, they can be more vulnerable to damage and accidental pressure.
In addition to that, the same source claimed that the Xiaomi 12 range will have a Symmetrical arrangement of the speakers, meaning that the upper and lower speakers would be on the same side (or possibly both in the center). This contrasts with the Xiaomi Mi 11 range, where they were on opposite sides.
Elsewhere, MyDrivers reports that the Xiaomi 12X will be unveiled alongside the standard phone in December. This is a phone that has been leaked in the past, but was supposed to land a bit later. , since its predecessor - the Xiaomi Mi 11X - was unveiled after most of the Mi 11 lineup.
We would take all of these affirmations with a pinch of salt, but with December roughly the coin that we should know for sure soon.
Analysis: curved screens might be on the solution
While Xiaomi may adopt curved displays more than ever in 2022, other brands may be on the verge of phasing out them.
Notably , Samsung could use flat screens for all Galaxy S22 models other than the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, even with this phone 's screen barely curved. Given that Samsung was once the biggest proponent of curved screens, this is a notable change.
Motorola has also moved away from curved screens with the Edge 20 series, and Xiaomi itself has previously stated that it has found that 60% of users prefer flat screens, which makes the emphasis on the curves in 2022 all the more surprising.
So if you are a fan of curved screens, you will not have many options soon, but for now at least Xiaomi should have you covered if the rumors are true.
