Live post-launch images showing the Xiaomi 12 right next to the Xiaomi 12 Pro have now provided a good look at exactly how compact the Xiaomi 12 is. Measuring in at 6.28" and 69.9 mm width, the Xiaomi makes its debut as one of the few "compact" premium phones left on the market.

Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12X, and Xiaomi 12 Pro a few days ago for the Chinese market. While the Xiaomi 12 Pro mostly maintains the size of its predecessor, the Mi 11 Pro, the Xiaomi 12 is a big reduction in size from the Mi 11, essentially making it something of a compact flagship.

Live images have now surfaced showing the Xiaomi 12 Pro right next to the vanilla Xiaomi 12 and highlighting exactly how small the latter is. The Xiaomi 12 looks to be quite a bit smaller than the Xiaomi 12 Pro. Right about as small as its 6.28-inch display versus the Pro model's 6.73-inch screen would indicate.

The Xiaomi 12's 6.28-inch display and 69.9 mm width makes it smaller than most premium phones on the market, with the exceptions of the Xperia 5 III (6.1-inch, 68 mm), Asus Zenfone 8 (5.9-inch, 68.5 mm), and the iPhone 13 Mini (5.4-inch, 64.2 mm). 

While the Xiaomi 12 may not be a true compact flagship like the iPhone 13 Mini or the Xperia Compacts of old, it debuts as, perhaps, the best option for those seeking a smaller Android device with some of the best available hardware on the market. The Xiaomi 12X is a great option as well, as it keeps most of the Xiaomi 12's specs, while being considerably cheaper.

Buy the 5.9-inch Asus Zenfone 8 on Amazon.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017.
