Redmi 12 appears on FCC, IMEI databases with partial info on specs


  • The company recently launched the Redmi Note 12 4G and Redmi 12C in India
  • As per the newly leaked info, the Redmi 12 will be running MIUI 14 and include a 33W charging adapter
  • We also learn that the phone will not offer 5G connectivity, hinting at a low price tag

Phones like the Redmi Note 12S and the Redmi Note 12 Pro 4G were recently launched in global markets after leaking out in renders last month. Meanwhile, the manufacturer also released the Redmi Note 12 4G and Redmi 12C in India recently, adding to an impressive lineup of mid-tier and budget handsets. We’re now coming across info on yet another budget offering, known as the Redmi 12, courtesy of mentions on databases such as the FCC and IMEI.

A GizmoChina report uncovers the Redmi 12 bearing the model number 23053RN02L from the IMEI database, whereas the FCC listing reveals a likely variant of the Redmi 12 with the model number 23053RN02Y. It’s hard to predict when or where this new budget smartphone will be available. But its appearance on both databases hints at a global release, including India.

Redmi 12 rumoured specifications

The IMEI database also reveals that the Redmi 12 will only offer 4G LTE support, whereas the FCC certification suggests the inclusion of a 33W fast charging adapter. MIUI 14 should be the software of choice for the Redmi 12, but it’s unspecified if that means Android 12 or Android 13.

Since it’s still early days, the manufacturer hasn’t confirmed the existence of the Redmi 12. But as we’ve seen in the past, phones arriving on certification sites is a decent hint that its launch is around the corner.

Unfortunately, the two online listings don’t mention the rest of the Redmi 12’s hardware specifications. Nevertheless, we expect leaks in the coming days to offer a better idea about this upcoming mid-ranger. The lack of 5G support suggests a price tag on the lower end of the spectrum, potentially within the Rs 10,000 range.
