Rumor | The Xiaomi 12 series will come with some potentially welcome display refinements

Some recent leaks concerning Xiaomi's Mi 11-series successors have hinted that the OEM might not change these smartphones much in terms of their curved displays, a potential source of consternation among tech fans who prefer other panel types instead. However, a prominent leaker now suggests the situation might be less pronounced compared to earlier indications.

The latest leaks surrounding Xiaomi's design for its next flagship smartphone series suggest that they will uphold the most potentially obtrusive display characteristics of the Mi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra. In other words, front panels with emphatic curves to either long sides and distracting punch-holes are on the menu for their putative successors. However, the reliable tipster Digital Chat Station now intimates that things might not be quite that bad for those who are not fans of either feature.

On the other hand, the leaker does now corroborate an earlier claim that the punch-hole in question will migrate to an even more eye-catching central location in the "Xiaomi 12" series. However, this cut-out is also slated to get smaller in this crop of putative Snapdragon 898-powered smartphones. Furthermore, that possibly dreaded curve might get less pronounced in this generation, thanks to continuing advancements in flexible-display technology.

Therefore, the Xiaomi "12" and its even more premium siblings might get upgrades in terms of screen-to-body ratio, bezel size and overall display appearance. Nevertheless, this may still prove mildly disappointing in the wake of a year in which under-display cameras, not to mention fully foldable displays, have become more commonplace within the upper echelons of the smartphone market.
