Redmi Note 12: Comprehensive Guide

The Redmi Note 12 series has at long last been released by Xiaomi. At this point, at least four different phones are available to purchase.

There are now four versions of the Redmi Note 12 available in China: the Pro, the Pro+, the Explorer Edition, and the Redmi Note 12. You can find information on each of them below, and we will continue to add new handsets to this range as well as the first details of the international launch as they become available as we update this site.

Therefore, without further ado, here is everything that we currently know concerning the Redmi Note 12 series.

Redmi Note 12 global release date?

On October 27, the first four Redmi Note 12 phones were shown off in China and will go on sale on October 31.

The launch happened about a year after the Redmi Note 11 came out in October 2021. Then, it took a few months for that phone to be sold worldwide. It didn’t hit Europe until early 2022, so, likely, the Note 12 series won’t be available outside of China until at least early 2023.

What is the Redmi Note 12’s price?

Now that the phones have been released in China, we have prices for the three models there, as well as rough estimates of what they would cost in other countries:

  • Redmi Note 12 starts at 1,199, about $165, £145, €165, or 13,500.
  • Redmi Note 12 Pro starts at 1,699, or about £230, €230, or 19,500.
  • Redmi Note 12 Pro+ starts at 2,199, or about $300, £260, €300, or 25,000.
  • Redmi Note 12 Explorer Edition starts at 2,399, about £330, €330, or 27,500.

As always, keep in mind that these conversions are only close, and prices outside of China are usually higher than in China. Even so, it gives you a general idea of what to expect. We can also look at the models that came before for more information:

  • Redmi Note 11 – £199/€199
  • Redmi Note 11S – €249
  • Redmi Note 11 Pro – £269/€329
  • Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G – £319/€369
  • Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G – £369/€449

We don’t think the Note 12 series will move too far from these prices since they are similar to the prices of the Poco and Xiaomi devices that they share. Of course, the current problems with production and distribution networks caused by Covid and the war in Ukraine could cause prices to go up a bit. I hope not.

Note 12 specifications and features?

Redmi Note 12

Note 12 is a basic low-cost phone, but it doesn’t look bad. It is also the most different from the other phones in the line.

It runs on the basic Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 chip and has up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space.

Like the other phones in the series, it will have a 6.67-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels (FHD+), a refresh rate of 120Hz, a touch sampling rate of 240Hz, and support for HDR10+, HDR10, and Dolby Vision.

Even though it has an OLED screen, the fingerprint sensor is still on the side, and there is still a 3.5mm headphone jack.

You get a 5000mAh battery, but the 33W wired charging is slow.

As for the cameras, the main 48Mp camera on the back is joined by only a 2Mp depth sensor. On the front, there is a simple 8Mp selfie camera.

It runs Android 12 with MIUI 13, like the other phones in the series.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 6/8GB RAM 128/256GB storage
6.67in OLED 120Hz 5000mAh battery
33W charging by wire
Camera: 48Mp main camera 2Mp depth sensor
8Mp selfie camera
5G Wi-Fi 6, 3.5mm headphone jack, Android 12, and MIUI 13.

Redmi Note 12 Pro

The Pro is the second phone in the line, and it is the most basic one.

It has the same MediaTek Dimensity 1080 chip as the other Pro models. And also it has 6, 8, or 12GB of RAM and 128 or 256GB of storage. It comes with the same screen as the basic model.

The 5000mAh battery should last a long time, and the 67W wired charging is pretty fast. This is one of the main ways this is less impressive than its Pro siblings.

The other big difference is the camera. The main camera on the Pro has a 50Mp Sony IMX766 sensor, an f/1.9 aperture, and OIS. The other lenses, however, are the same across the board: an 8MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 16MP front-facing camera.

MediaTek Dimensity 1080 has 128/256GB of storage and 6/8/12GB of RAM.
6.67-inch OLED screen, 120Hz, 5000mAh battery, 67W wired charging
Main camera: 50MP, f/1.9, OIS, 8MP ultrawide
2Mp macro
16-megapixel front-facing camera, 5G Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headphone jack, Android 12, MIUI 13

Redmi Note 12 Pro+

The Pro+ doesn’t make a big difference to the formula. The performance is the same, but you can only get 8GB or 12GB of RAM, and the storage is locked at 256GB.

The Pro has the same battery, but the 120W charging is faster.

The camera also gets a big update. The main sensor is now a 200Mp Samsung ISOCELL HPX with a much wider f/1.65 aperture. Since 200Mp camera sensors are still new, it’s hard to say how well this camera will hold up, but since it can combine 16 pixels into one, it should be a definite step up from the Pro’s camera.

MediaTek Dimensity 1080 has 8/12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
6.67in OLED 120Hz 120W wired charging 5000mAh battery
Main camera: 200 megapixels, f/1.65, OIS, 8 megapixel ultrawide
2Mp macro
16Mp selfie camera
5G Wi-Fi 6, 3.5mm headphone jack, Android 12, and MIUI 13.
