Xiaomi is relaunching its unveiled in October 2022 smartphone 12T Pro in an exciting and chic special edition. The Xiaomi 12T Pro Daniel Arsham Edition shines in the look of the namesake artist and comes with a chic marbled finish.
The Xiaomi 12T Pro Daniel Arsham Edition in detail
If you’re flirting with buying a new smartphone, you’ll find the Xiaomi 12T Pro Daniel Arsham Edition to be a particularly handsome device.
“Taking cues from Daniel Arsham’s “Future Archeological” aesthetic, this is the first time the artist has experimented with bringing textures from his sculptural designs on impermanence and natural erosion to a smartphone,” according to the manufacturer.
This results in a high-quality, greenish marble-look design with gold elements that is said to feel comfortable and tactile in the hand.
From a purely technical point of view, however, the special edition does not differ from the normal 12T Pro. Means: You get the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 from Qualcomm and the professional camera with a resolution of 200 megapixels together with Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1 sensor in 1/1.22 inch format here as well.
“I’m excited to take my work into areas that are outside the typical scenario of the art world. I looked at the Xiaomi 12T Pro as a sculpture that has a purpose beyond just being functional; 20 years from now, people who own this phone will no longer use it as a phone, but as a sculptural object that is connected to a specific moment in time and goes beyond its functionality,” said artist Daniel Arsham himself.
Price and Availability
The strictly limited Xiaomi 12T Pro Daniel Arsham Edition will be limited to just 2,000 units in Europe. The smartphone will be available online at highsnobiety.com starting December 16, 2022, as well as in Berlin at the Xiaomi x Daniel Arsham pop-up store from December 16-17.
However, Xiaomi has unfortunately not revealed prices. However, the RRP of the normal 12T Pro of around 800 Euros will probably be surpassed significantly.
