Can you meet user expectations?

xiaomi launched his redmi note 12 series on October 27 in China. This series has 4 models including Note 12, pro, Pro+ and Explorer Edition. Note 12 is the entry-level model in the Redmi Note 12 lineup. Although Note 12 serves as a starting point for the Redmi Note 12 series and offers the best deal for certain customers, it is far from a low-end device. It has some good features with some drawbacks. Let’s take a look at if redmi note 12 can meet the expectations of Xiaomi fans.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Key Features


The Redmi Note 12 is a masterpiece in this area, as Xiaomi has essentially mastered the art of making its phones look like flagships. While options from manufacturers like Nokia and Motorola make a lot of effort, they tend to have a certain clunky feel that Xiaomi continually avoids with its small budget phones.

The 6.67-inch screen dominates the front, which has very small bezels around it. The “chin” has a slightly larger frame, but is still only a few inches thick. There is very little area used for anything other than the screen due to a small notch at the top of the screen in the middle.

dimensions are 165.9 by 76.2 by 8 mm. Weighing 188g, the Note 12 won’t feel too heavy. It has dual SIM. Dust and splash resistance of IP53 grade makes the device easier to use.

The style is seen on both sides. Although it’s a bit prone to staining, the smooth plastic is nice to hold and gradually slopes towards the corners. A sizable rectangle in the top left corner neatly encloses the dual-camera array.


The screen of the Redmi Note 12 is a 6.67-inch OLED device with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 or 409 pixels per inch. It is also capable of 120Hz refresh rates, however you should choose this option as 60Hz is the default.

And except for one aspect, it’s a great screen. At 95.8% volume, it displays a full spectrum of colors accurately and brilliantly, covering 95.4% of the sRGB gamut. Despite using OLED technology, it still has a good brightness level of 428 cd/m2, which makes it readable on less than bright days. Thanks to OLED technology, the contrast is also excellent.

All this results in a screen at the height of others in this price range (and several above), but with a peculiarity. Text in menus sometimes drags and appears in two locations at once for a short period of time, making the text appear to be unable to keep up with the refresh rate of the screen.


Depending on your perspective, the inclusion of no less than 2 cameras on the rear of the Redmi Note 12 is impressive, or too ambitious. There’s only a 2MP (f/2.4) depth sensor in addition to the 48MP wide main camera. The main sensor features a 0.8 nichrome lens size.

On paper, it all looks great, but the pudding is the real test, and to push the analogy too far, this dessert is noticeably underdone, or more accurately, undersaturated.

On the front, the Note 12 has an 8 MP wide selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture, with a 1/4″ 1.12 ยตm lens size. The 8 MP front camera has the issue from low saturation when taking selfies.

With the main rear camera, you can record 1080p images at 30 or 60fps; while the selfie camera allows you to capture 1080p images at 30fps.

Performance and software

Things have been going pretty well so far, but they’re about to get worse.

The scores gave a rather mixed picture of the Qualcomm Snapdragon’s capabilities, even though the Redmi Note 12 feels absolutely snappy while browsing the internet and switching between apps. The processor used is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 6nm chipset, and is accompanied by the Adreno 619 GPU.

Note 12 has up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space. Its variants are 4/128GB, 6/128GB 6GB, 8/128GB and 8/256GB. The device has UFS 2.2 data transfer technology.

battery and charger

A battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh is considered quite large; the only time you’ll need a charger throughout the day is if you’re doing power-hungry activities like gaming or GPS navigation.

It’s remarkable that after an hour of watching a video stream with the volume turned down and the brightness turned up to the max, the battery only dropped by five percent despite these extreme conditions.

Due to its low price, the Redmi Note 12 does not support wireless charging, which is to be expected in such a device. On the other hand, 33W wired charging works pretty well, and you can get a full charge on this phone in just over an hour if you start from scratch. There is no reason to worry about the battery charge or the duration of its use.

Redmi Note 12 price in Bangladesh
