New leak reveals more Redmi Note 12 series details ahead of launch
As we revealed a while ago, the Redmi Note 12 series is on the way. Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 11 lineup in China back in October, and is now set to follow the phones up with the Redmi Note 12 series. Word from China has now also provided further insight into the devices.
According to It's Fat, the Redmi Note 12 series will play host to three devices: the Redmi Note 12, Redmi Note 12 Pro, and Redmi Note 12 Pro+. All three phones are said to be powered by MediaTek chipsets. The base model is tipped for a Dimensity 810; the Redmi Note 12 Pro a Dimensity 1300; and the range-topping Redmi Note 12 Pro+ a Dimensity 8000. Powerful chipsets across the board, particularly on the Redmi Note 12 Pro+. From Dimensity 8100 tests, we can assume that the Dimensity 8000 offers performance slightly better than the Snapdragon 870.
While earlier rumors indicated that the Redmi Note 12 series could debut in China this month, the source seems to imply that this is no longer possible—a May launch appears to be planned instead. It should, of course, be clarified that the Chinese Redmi Note 12 phones are unlikely to share much with global models other than chassis and design—if the Redmi Note 11 series is anything to go by.
