Redmi 12C Confirmed to Get New Storage Option in India: Expected Price, Specifications

The third storage option might actually sit between the existing two configurations in India.

  1. Redmi 12C will launch soon with a third new storage option.
  2. The device is currently available in India with 4GB and 6GB RAM.
  3. Xiaomi now offers the phone with up to 128GB of storage.

Xiaomi has teased the launch of a new variant of the Redmi 12C. The company took to Twitter to confirm the launch of a new Redmi 12C, which will have more RAM and storage under the hood. Currently, the 12C is available in India with two storage options. The base model offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There is also a 6GB RAM variant with 128GB of storage. Therefore, it is likely that Xiaomi will launch a 4GB + 128GB storage variant of the phone or an 8GB + 256GB variant, which is not as common in this segment. 

We suspect the 128GB storage option with 4GB of RAM will likely launch in India in the coming days. That way, the 4GB + 128GB variant might sit between the two existing storage options in India. Xiaomi has not confirmed any details about the same. Meanwhile, here’s a quick look at the Redmi 12C specifications, price in India and other details.

Redmi 12C: New Storage Configuration Teased

Xiaomi will launch a new variant of the Redmi 12C in India very soon. The device was launched earlier this year in India with two storage options. Xiaomi has not explicitly confirmed the configuration details of the third variant. We suspect the 4GB + 128GB storage option will launch in India and sit between the existing 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB storage options.

Xiaomi launched the 4GB + 64GB variant of the Redmi 12C for Rs 8,999. The 6GB + 128GB variant is available for Rs 10,999. If the 4GB + 128GB variant does launch in India, it will likely be available for Rs 9,999.

The device is currently available for purchase in India in four colour options — Lavender Purple, Matte Black, Mint Green and Royal Blue. The upcoming storage option will likely be available in all four colour options soon.
