Redmi Note 12 series India launch date has been revealed by popular tipster Mukul Sharma. In October, Redmi announced the Redmi Note 12, Note 12 Pro, and Note 12 Pro+ in China. Earlier this week, the first teasers of the Note 12 series were rolled out in India, which suggested that it may debut at some point this month. However, the latest leak reveals the launch will take place on 5th January 2023.
The leak also reveals that the lineup will comprise three models, namely, the Redmi Note 12, Note 12 Pro, and Note 12 Pro+. The tipster has previously claimed that the Pro+ variant will have a 200-megapixel primary camera. It appears that the same Note 12 models that are available in China will be released in India.
