The company is yet to announce official details of both Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12X, with regard to specifications and pricing.

Mi 11X features a Snapdragon 870 chipset, which is also tipped to arrive on the upcoming Xiaomi 12X.
Xiaomi 12X is likely to launch with a 6.28-inch (1,080×2,400 pixels) OLED display and feature the Snapdragon 870 SoC under the hood, along with a 5,000mAh battery, according to a report by MyDrivers, which also suggests the smartphone could arrive alongside Xiaomi 12 at a December launch event.
