Redmi Note 12 series launch on October 27: everything you need to know

Historically, the Redmi Note series has been one of the most popular offerings from xiaomi, if not the most popular, so the amount of hype these phones generate isn’t all that surprising. It has been almost a year since the last annual update, the Redmi Note 12 series is almost here, and the company has been busy releasing teasers on its social media. With that in mind, we’ve curated a list of everything there is to know about the upcoming phones ahead of their imminent launch.

three models

So far, the company has barely provided any information on the models and variants that will make up the Redmi Note 12 series, but if previous releases are anything to go by, there will be at least three of them. These will likely be the Redmi Note 12, Redmi Note 12 Pro, and Redmi Note 12 Pro+. However, Redmi is known for releasing very different models for the Chinese and global markets, so it remains to be seen if the same naming scheme will hold for the global models as well.

battery and processor

The top model of the next series, probably the Redmi Note 12 Pro+, will have an incredibly fast charging speed of 210W, which will make it one of the fastest charging phones in the industry. Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 are also not far behind and will support charging speeds of 67W and 120W, respectively.

Battery usage to handle processing needs will be MediaTek Dimensity 1080 on Pro models. The processor is made by TSMC on the 6nm process and consists of two ARM Cortex-A78 cores running at up to 2, 6 GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2 GHz, which is the same as its predecessor, the Dimensity 920. The chip also supports 5G. Meanwhile, there is no information available on the processing capabilities of the Redmi Note 10 at the moment, although it is also possible that it will work with Dimensity 1080.


the Sony The IMX 766 camera sensor will take care of the photographic needs of the Redmi Note 12 series. The high-capacity sensor was previously featured in Xiaomi 12 and Nothing Phone 1 in the past and is proven performer. It has a 1/1.56″ sensor and even comes with built-in optical image stabilization. There are some rumors pointing towards a Redmi Note 12 Explorer Edition with 200MP Samsung sensor as well, but they are not confirmed at this point.

Xiaomi has also teased that the Redmi Note 12 series will sport an improved night mode that will greatly reduce noise in photos, thanks to some improvements on the software side.


From the teasers, it’s been pretty clear that the Redmi Note 12 series has deviated from its usual design philosophy to go for a more Realme-esque look with that familiar-looking camera island. The teasers show triple cameras on the back of the phones, but the one on the front has yet to be shown off, just like the rest of the front design.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro will come in two different finishes: “Shallow Dream Galaxy” and “Time Blue”. There are also rumors that at least one of the models will come with a curved screen, but we’ll have to wait to see if they have any substance at this point.

Release date

All Redmi Note 12 models will launch together on October 27 in China, although the global launch may take several weeks after that.
