We already know about two new Xiaomi 12 models, the 12 Pro and the 12 Ultra, but it appears that a third will join the fight as well. Kacper Skrzypek discovered an IMEI certification listing for the Xiaomi 12X, which is comparable to the Mi 11X from earlier this year.
The 12X is nicknamed Psyche and has the model number 2112123AG, according to the listing. The certification also gives a list of the device’s high-end specifications.
Say "hello" to the #Xiaomi12X (codename: psyche, not for India).

The 12X is likely to include a 6.28-inch AMOLED display with 1080p resolution and a smooth refresh rate of 120Hz. The Snapdragon 870, the current flagship-grade CPU, will power the device, and the primary camera will be a 50MP sensor.
The tipster also claims that the 12X is not intended for India, implying that we may expect something similar to the Xiaomi Mi 11X. The Mi 11X is based on the Redmi K40 from China, but it is known as the Poco F3 outside of China, except in Europe, where it is known as the Mi 11X. Don’t try to make sense of anything; it’s just standard Xiaomi branding.
This could imply that the 12X is intended for Europe and will be marketed as a Poco phone in the rest of the world, as well as a Redmi K series phone in China. But, with Xiaomi, you never know because they tend to modify their branding patterns with each generation.
