Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Redmi 12 in India at the start of next month. It is set to be announced on the 1st of August 2023 and will target the budget segment in India. Now, we have official confirmation regarding its availability on Amazon.
Prior to the announcement, the Chinese tech giant’s Redmi 12 was spotted on Amazon India. In other words, the budget phone will be sold exclusively via the known e-retailer. We can see the Indian actress Disha Patani (Brand Ambassador) promoting the device on the microsite along with some design teasers. The front of the Redmi 12 sports a flat display with a centre-aligned punch-hole selfie camera, while the rear features a triple camera setup and a Crystal Glass design. The Moonstone Silver colour option with Rainbow Hues was also teased on the website.
Redmi 12 Specifications
The affordable handset was already released in select regions last month, and its Indian launch is just around the corner. The Indian version will likely feature similar hardware to the global variant, if not identical. So we can expect the Redmi 12 to sport a tall 6.79-inch LCD panel that offers Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, the device will be equipped with the MediaTek Helio G88 SoC, which is paired with up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of eMMC 5.1 storage.
A large 5,000mAh battery pack powers this device, which also supports 18W fast charging. Other notable features include Bluetooth 5.1, a microSD card slot for memory expansion, NFC, a 3.5mm audio jack, an IP53 rating for protection, and dual SIM support. This model’s 8GB+128GB configuration was sold in Thailand for THB 5,299, which is roughly Rs 12,500. So we can expect a similar price range in India as well. We will be covering the India launch, so stay tuned.
