The Redmi Note 12 series will make its debut later today in China.

This could be a Redmi Note 12 series device which is expected to launch today in Xiaomi’s domestic market. The benchmark listing reveals some of the key specifications of the Redmi Note 12 smartphone.

Let us take a closer look at the Redmi Note 12 series device benchmark scores and key specifications.

Redmi Note 12 Series Won’t Ship With the Latest Android Version

The Redmi Note 12 series device with model number 22101316C made an appearance on the Geekbench 5 benchmark database. This could be the Redmi Note 12 Pro. As per the listing, the smartphone managed to score 767 points in the single-core round of the benchmark test. Whereas, in the multi-core test, the score was recorded as 2008 points. The listing also reveals the presence of an octa-core processor with the codename ruby.

Upon digging further we found that the device is equipped with Mali G68 GPU and the peak frequency of the CPU is 2.6GHz. Based on these, it appears that the Redmi Note 12 will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1080 processor. To those unaware, the Dimensity 1080 is the successor of last year’s MediaTek Dimensity 920 and was announced quite recently. The Redmi Note 12 will be one of the first smartphones to make use of the Dimensity 1080 processor.

Apart from it, the listing also reveals that the handset will retail in a 6GB RAM configuration. Though, Xiaomi might launch the device in other memory options as well. The upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 series device will boot Android 12, but as usual, we can expect it to be topped with the company’s proprietary MIUI 13.

It’s a bit disappointing that the brand is shipping the device with the Android 12 version when the Android 13 has already been out for a couple of months. To learn more about the Redmi Note 12 series devices, you can head over to our previous coverage.
