Redmi Note 12 Series in India: Our thoughts?


Xiaomi Redmi Noe 12 series comes with some notable improvements over its predecessor Redmi Note 11 series. Even if we look at the most basic model of the Redmi 12 series, Redmi Note 12 smartphone, it comes with some great features such as a full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. But the processor, Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 though is almost identical to what we were getting in the Redmi Note 11 or Redmi Note 11 Pro.

Our suggestion would be to go with the Redmi Note 12 Pro or Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G over the basic, Redmi Note 12 as the latter models provide a better value for money. Also, the processors in both the latter models, Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G are much more powerful. Overall, the Redmi Note 12 series is sure to pique the interest of the tech community and it won’t be unfair to say that the series is well-deserving of it too. It would be interesting to see If Xiaomi launches the Redmi Note 12 series under 25K (as they have mentioned)

So, this was all about the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 series in India, its launch date, price, specifications, and our honest thoughts on it. If you have any questions, please feel free to put them below in the comments.
