So far this has only been in the Xiaomi 12 series and the recently published one Honor magic v used. The RAM configuration is 12 gigabytes, XDA speaks of other configurations with 8 or even only 6 gigabytes of RAM.

The front camera is upgraded from 20 to 32 megapixels, the sensor also comes from OmniVision.
