The Xiaomi 12T has now broken cover. The phone seems to have gone on sale in Peru before an official announcement, with the lucky buyer now revealing live images, major specs, and pricing of the sub-premium phone ahead of its launch.

While Xiaomi is yet to officially confirm the existence, or even launch plans, of the Xiaomi 12T series, the vanilla Xiaomi 12T model has already gone on sale in a corner of the world—like the global version of the Mi Band 7 Pro recently did—with the lucky buyer now revealing all major details of the phone.

As revealed by Xiaomiui, a user in Peru has now had the good fortune of being able to buy the Xiaomi 12T before the phone's launch. The 12T, by all indications, appears to share a chassis with the Redmi K50 Extreme Edition—Redmi K50 Ultra, according to some—that debuted a while ago. That's not surprising, as rumors always claimed so

The 12T sports a 6.67-inch 1.5K 120 Hz AMOLED with a hole punch and retains the 20 MP selfie camera. Gone is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 on the Redmi K50 Extreme Edition, however, with a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Ultra in its place. There's a 108 MP camera at the rear—likely the ISOCELL HM6—and it's aided by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2 MP depth sensor. For some reason, though, [email protected] FPS video capture appears to be absent. A 5000 mAh battery supplies juice, along with 120 W charging.

Seemingly, the phone will be available with either 256 GB or 512 GB of storage. 8 GB of RAM comes as standard. This leaked unit offers 256 GB of storage and appears to have cost around US$616 after converting currencies. The Xiaomi 11T with 256 GB cost €599 last year, so it appears prices will remain the same.
