Xiaomi’s spin-off brand Redmi launched the Redmi Note 11 series in India earlier this year in February. Now, it appears that the company may soon launch a successor named Redmi Note 12, as a new information from China sheds light on the phone’s internals. Unlike the vanilla Redmi Note 11, the upcoming Note 12 will likely come with a MediaTek Dimensity chipset, that too with the latest one.
Redmi Note 12 will get a major upgrade
According to Digital Chat Station, the upcoming Redmi Note 12 will be powered by the newly launched MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC. It is quoted that the Dimensity 1080 offers the same performance as the Snapdragon 778G.
For those who are unaware, the Snapdragon 778G is a mid-range chipset that is usually seen in phones above Rs 25,000. If the new information is to be believed, the Redmi Note 12 will offer value for its price range with Snapdragon 778G-like performance.
If the vanilla Redmi Note 12 comes with 1080p, it is likely that the phone will retail at an affordable price, mostly under Rs 20,000. While this news is exciting, it is just speculation, and nothing has been confirmed yet.
Talking about the chipset, the Dimension 1080 is based on a 6nm fabrication process with Mali-G68 GPU. The chipset supports 200MP camera and has HyperEngine 3.0 support. It also supports 4K video recording.
The Redmi Note 12 was earlier said to come with an upgraded 50MP main lens. However, the exact sensor is not yet known. This main lens will be paired with an 8MP ultra-wide snapper and a 2MP macro lens. Since the chipset supports 4K, the Note 12 may also come with 4K video shooting support.
Apart from the vanilla Note 12, the rumors suggest two more devices, namely the Redmi Note 12 Pro and the Redmi Note 12 Pro+. Both can come with a 6.6-inch AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and FHD+ support.
The vanilla Note 12 is said to house a 4,980mAh battery, while the Note 12 Pro+ is expected to house a 4,300mAh battery. Although there is a big difference in the battery of both the phones, but the charging speed is expected to be better on the Pro+.
All these things are yet to be confirmed, so take the information with a pinch of salt. Also, with the launch still a few months away, the series is likely to go official in early 2023.
