To be. Many things happened during the launch of these phones, the most important of which was the period of the company's support for these two phones.
According to the Chinese company, the two Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro phones for three years in terms of software (Android update) and will receive a security update for four years. With this decision, Xiaomi is only one year away from Samsung, which will support its new flagships for four years in terms of software and five years in terms of security. Of course, Xiaomi also made a number of commitments to support the 12X model, but not as much as the standard and Pro models.
Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro with Android 12 and MIUI 13 user interface as the default software system in Will be available to customers. With the new policy adopted by Xiaomi, we can expect that with the arrival of Android 15, the work of two phones in this regard will end.

It should also be noted that after two years, this chip is related to four or five generations ago, while the Snapdragon 8 generation 1 will be only two generations away from the latest model of that time. So naturally the performance drop on Snapdragon 870 phones will be even greater.
Currently, Samsung, OnePlus, Xiaomi and a number of other Chinese companies are updating their products in terms of software for more than two years. Of course, Samsung has extended this to its new intermediaries, so that every year, every new flagship phone that announces the introduction and duration of their software updates covers the same intermediaries of the same year. Of course, the Korean company currently has a record in this regard with four years of software updates and five years of security.
Leaving this aside, we come to the warranty. Fortunately, all three phones are in the same situation and have a two-year warranty from Xiaomi. Two years is a standard for the EU and nowhere else. Since these phones are sold in this market (and other markets), they must meet this standard. Interestingly, for six months after the purchase of this series, ie all three models, if there is a problem with the display and the user has to replace it, it will be done for free.
