The Xiaomi 12S will be a smaller device with an FHD display and a 120Hz refresh rate. The display size hasn’t been revealed yet, but it is said to have a friendly size. The device will reportedly have a single-hole flexible curved screen, and the rear will have a triple camera setup with a 50MP main camera.
