We can't quite believe the design of the limited-edition Xiaomi 12T Pro

Just when we complain that smart phone designs all look the same, along comes something... different. Most phone brands tend to aim for a device that looks sleek, elegant.. or at least new and clean. But Xiaomi's taken a very unusual approach with the launch of a limited-edition version of the Xiaomi 12T Pro.

The phone manufacturer has brought in the New York-based sculptor Daniel Arsham  to reimagine its flagship phone through the lens of his "fictional archaeology" aesthetic. The result is the phone that looks like it's been resting at the bottom of the sea for the past century (for other phone options, see our pick of the best camera phones available).
