A new Redmi smartphone is on its way from Xiaomi. In various markets, the Redmi 12 might soon be launched as an affordable smartphone for the masses. It is likely to succeed last year’s Redmi 10, which was launched in global markets, including India.
Additionally, Dealabs revealed Redmi’s RAM, storage, and pricing.
A new budget smartphone, the Redmi 12, is launching globally very soon. There are reports that the phone will come with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Xiaomi is expected to launch the phone in Europe on June 2. According to the report, the device will launch at EUR 199 (roughly Rs 17,700). There will be three colors available for the device – blue, silver, and black.
The phone will have a plastic body and frame. It measures 8.17mm thick and weighs about 199 grams. Redmi 12 will come with a 5000mAh battery and 18W fast charging support out of the box. There will be a USB Type-C port on the phone, as well as a dual-SIM card slot.
In the front, the phone is said to feature a tall 6.79-inch IPS TFT screen with a Full HD+ resolution of 2460×1080 pixels. It will have a pixel density of 396 PPI and will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
It will support a refresh rate of up to 90Hz. Based on the content displayed on the screen, Xiaomi’s AdaptiveSync refresh rate technology will be used to switch between 30, 48, 60 or 90Hz.
The device will be powered by a MediaTek Helio G88 SoC. There is only one RAM option with 128GB of storage. The microSD card slot will allow users to expand storage up to 1TB.
There are three cameras on the back of the device. Redmi 12’s primary camera sensor is likely to be a 50MP sensor with an aperture of f/1.8. Other sensors include an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro. Based on the leaked camera specs, the Redmi 12 offers a reasonably versatile camera setup for the price. It will have an 8MP front camera with an f/2.5 aperture for selfies.
Among its features will be dual speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a fingerprint scanner, and artificial intelligence face recognition. According to reports, the device will boot Android 12-based MIUI 13 right out of the box, which is disappointing since Android 13 has been available for a year, while Android 14 has already been announced by Google.
