It seems that Xiaomi is preparing to release the Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus in China, just a few months after introducing their predecessors. Reputedly, the pair will launch globally not as Redmi Note smartphones but under the POCO X4 series instead. For some reason, this will not be the case in India, where Xiaomi will sell the Redmi Note 12 Pro as the Xiaomi 12X and POCO X4 GT.

More details about the Redmi Note 12 series have emerged, courtesy of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in China. As the screenshots below show, Xiaomi has registered the 22041216C and 22041216UC with MIIT, typically a sign that Xiaomi is on the verge announcing new smartphones. While the screenshots do not provide the device's official names, Xiaomiui asserts that the 22041216C and 22041216UC are the Chinese versions of the Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus, respectively.

Additionally, MIIT has confirmed that 22041216C and 22041216UC are 5G handsets, potentially thanks to the Dimensity 8000 and Dimensity 8100 chipsets. Purportedly, Xiaomi will release 22041216C outside China under different sub-brands. Specifically, Xiaomiui expects the 22041216C to land in India as the POCO X4 GT and the Xiaomi 12X, both with the model numbers 22041216I. In comparison, the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus is rumoured to launch in India under the same name, but with the model number 22041216UI.

Separately, Xiaomiui states that the Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus will only appear in other markets under the POCO X4 series. Supposedly, the POCO X4 GT (22041216G) will be the global equivalent to the Redmi Note 12 Pro, with the POCO X4 GT Plus (22041216UG) serving as the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus' global counterpart. Xiaomiui adds that the Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus will launch sometime this quarter, although this may not be true of the POCO X4 series.
