Redmi has confirmed the launch of the Note 12 Pro in India. The Note 12 Pro will launch alongside the Pro+ 5G model in India on January 5. Xiaomi has also confirmed that the Note 12 Pro 5G will come with support for optical image stabilisation for the primary camera. The company claimed that the Note 12 Pro 5G will also be the first smartphone in its segment to offer the camera sensor stability feature. The Note 12 Pro 5G has been launched in China. It is unknown if the same device is coming to India.
We say so because historically, the Note series in China has been different (and sometimes superior) in terms of hardware compared to the Indian/ global variants. The Note 12 Pro Chinese variant comes with support for OIS as well. Therefore, we can expect the Indian variant to share most of the specifications with the Chinese variant.
Let’s take a look at the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G India launch details, specifications, features, etc.
Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G Specifications
The Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G will launch as a successor to the Note 11 Pro 4G, which was launched earlier this year in India. The device is set to debut earlier than expected. Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G alongside the Pro+ model on January 5.
The Note 12 Pro will finally bring support for 5G networks in India, which was missing in its predecessor. Xiaomi also revealed that the device will support OIS without revealing the camera sensor details. It is assumed that the Indian variant will come with a 50MP Sony IMX766 main camera, which is also used in the Chinese variant.
If the camera setup is the same, then the Indian variant of the Note 12 Pro 5G will also feature an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro camera. There will be a 16MP front camera sensor as well.
The Chinese variant also features a MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC. However, we think that the Indian variant could pack a different processor. Xiaomi might launch the phone with a Snapdragon 695 SoC to keep the price low. The device is also likely to pack a 5000mAh battery with 67W fast charging support.
The phone is likely to sport a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution. It will support a 120Hz refresh rate and could offer a peak brightness of 900 nits. The device is also likely to run Android 12-based MIUI 13 out of the box. Although Xiaomi has announced MIUI 14, the Note 12 series in India could get it as part of an OTA update instead of an out-of-the-box release.
