Xiaomi expands its Redmi Note 12 series with three new additions
Xiaomi India has added a new dimension to its legendary Redmi Note series with the launch of three devices, which redefine smartphone performance across the mid-segment. The latest additions to the smartphone series bring features like the greatest image resolution seen on a smartphone camera in India, new adaptive sync AMOLED displays, 5G connectivity and incredibly fast charging speeds. While the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G and the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G, add a pro-level degree of performance to the Note series, the Redmi Note 12 5G combines premium features with amazing affordability.
"The Redmi Note series has always been about democratizing technology, bringing features and functions that are normally associated with premium devices to the mainstream user," said Anuj Sharma, Chief Marketing Officer, Xiaomi India, at the launch of the Super Note. "The Redmi Note 12 series carries this tradition forward, bringing features like the greatest ever resolution seen on a smartphone camera, top notch display quality, cutting edge connectivity and insanely fast charging speeds, all at the trademark honest price that marks Xiaomi's product portfolio. What's more, they deliver all this along with the smooth and reliable performance that has made the Redmi Note the highest selling smartphone series in the country over the years. Which is why we are calling it the SuperNote."
One of the biggest talking points of the latest Redmi Note devices has been its photography. And with good reason. Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G and Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G come with the best sensors seen in their segment. Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is the first phone in India to come with the 200-megapixel pro-grade HPX Sensor which delivers the greatest ever resolution seen on a smartphone camera. This combined with Xiaomi's super optical image stabilization (OIS) ensures that you get images of unmatched quality with staggering detail. The presence of atomic layer deposition (ALD), an Ultra-Low Reflection Coating, cuts down on glare and ensures that you get great snaps even in complex lighting situations. Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G comes with the Sony IMX 766 50-megapixel main sensor, which is seen mainly on premium flagships, along with optical image stabilization (OIS) for better low light performance and rocksteady videos.
Both the Pro phones come with 8-megapixel ultrawide sensors as well, enabling you to capture wider landscapes with a field of view of 120 degrees, literally broadening your photography horizon, as well as Xiaomi's iconic Pro Vlog mode and Film Frames to personalize your images as well as videos. All of which result in premium level photography and videography at mid-segment prices.
Both the SuperNotes come with large batteries - Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G comes with a 4980mAh battery while the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G has a 5000mAh one. These batteries will not only keep the phone running for more than a day of normal use comfortably, but also get charged in literally a matter of minutes. Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G packs in a 67W charger that delivers a full day's charge in just 15 minutes, and Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G comes with a 120W HyperCharge adapter that charges the phone to 100 percent in a mere 19 minutes. A few minutes of charging literally gives you hours of battery time. And both phones come with chargers in the box too.
The Redmi Note series played a prominent role in making 4G accessible to millions of mainstream consumers. And its latest variants are now set to surf the incoming high speed 5G connectivity waves. Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G and Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G come with support for 10 5G bands, enabling users to get on to the fastest network of all as soon as it becomes available in their part of town.
Both these phones come with brilliant 6.67 inch inch full HD+ Pro AMOLED displays with 120Hz Adaptive refresh rate that are a level above Super AMOLED displays. This ensures smoother performance while also optimizing battery usage. These 10-bit Pro AMOLED displays lend the devices more than a billion colors, with HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision, as well as support for DCI-P3 color gamut. The displays support 16,000 levels of automatic brightness auto adjustment and PWM 1920Hz tuning, making them the benchmark setters in their segment.
Complementing those stunning visuals is fantastic sound from dual stereo speakers that come with Dolby Atmos support. The phones also come with Hi-Res audio certification, making them a great proposition for discerning audio lovers. And both come with a 3.5 mm audio jack as well, so audiophiles can plug in their beloved wired headphones without having to worry about carrying dongles and adapters.
Running the show inside these Pro-level Redmi Notes is the powerful MediaTek Dimensity 1080 processor. This 6 nm processor has a clock speed as high as 2.6GHz and is fast, power efficient. It makes gaming an absolute joy and multi-tasking snappy. Even snapping, editing and processing high resolution images from those amazing cameras become a buttery smooth experience, thanks to the Dimensity dimension lying within the Super Notes. Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G has 3000mm2 Vapour chamber for better cooling and Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G comes with 12-layer graphite layers for cooling. Ensuring that no matter how hectic the action on them, the Super Notes stay Super cool.
Rounding off the Redmi Note 12 5G series lineup is the Redmi Note 12 5G, which encapsulates all that makes the Redmi Note great - amazing specs and performance at a price that seems unbelievable. The phone brings a 6.67-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate and peak brightness of 1200 nits as well as Gorilla Glass protection, features which are a rarity in its price segment and reflects Redmi's commitment to making premium features accessible to the mainstream smartphone community. The phone comes with a triple camera set-up, featuring a 48-megapixel main sensor, and also an 8 megapixel ultra-wide camera especially for the Indian market, enabling users to capture a wider field of view. Redmi Note 12 5G is also the first Redmi Note to be powered by the new Snapdragon 4 Generation 1 chip, which delivers seamless multi-tasking and smooth overall performance. The phone is beautifully crafted and packs in a large 5000mAh battery in spite of being just 7.98mm thin. A 33W charger in the box ensures that the battery gets charged in next to no time. The phone also comes with Dual 5G SIM support, again a feature that is not common at its price point. Also on board are a 3.5 mm audio jack and an IR blaster (a Redmi Note signature feature). With an IP 53 rating to protect it from splashes, the Redmi Note 12 5G is every inch a Super Note in its own right, even without the Pro moniker.
