Xiaomi 12 Pro is officially coming to India on April 27, Xiaomi announced today. The company had teased the launch just minutes before OnePlus’s scheduled OnePlus 10 Pro 5G and OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2 launch event on March 31. This is the most high-end phone that Xiaomi makes today. It will take on the OnePlus 10 Pro, obviously, and also the likes of the iQOO 9 Pro, Motorola Edge 30 Pro, Realme GT 2 Pro, and the Samsung Galaxy S22 series. The Xiaomi 12 Pro price in China starts at CNY 4,699 (roughly Rs 56,200).
