Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition Launch Confirmed
The Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition will be the fifth smartphone in Xiaomi’s latest Note lineup in China. It will launch on December 27. Xiaomi has also confirmed the processor details of the phone. The company revealed that its Speed Edition Note series smartphone will feature a Snapdragon 778G SoC. The chipset has been around for quite some time and is a capable upper mid-range SoC.
Alongside, the Note 12 Pro Speed Edition’s display details have also been tipped. Xiaomi revealed that the phone will come with an OLED display. The screen will remain flat. We can expect it to sport a hole-punch cutout at the top centre. The phone will sport a flat frame design.
The camera module design is the same as the Note 12 series phones. There is a triple-camera setup on the back. The text on the camera module also confirms that the Note 12 Pro Speed Edition will come with a 108MP main camera. Details about the sensor size and type are unknown at the moment. The LED flash module is placed inside the camera module as well. Next to the camera module is the Redmi 5G branding.
It would not be a surprise if the phone also features an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro camera, which are now standard sensors used in most Redmi mid-range and premium smartphones. The phone could also feature a 16MP front camera sensor.
The teaser image reveals that the phone will launch in a Mint Green colour. The device also has the power and volume keys on the right edge. The power button might well double up as a fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication.
In addition to the above details, Xiaomi also revealed that the phone will boot MIUI 14 out of the box. It will be based on Android 13, which is the latest software version from Google.
Other expected specifications include a 120Hz refresh rate support, a 5000mAh battery with 67W fast charging support at least and a 3.5mm headphone jack for connecting wired earphones. What are your thoughts on the Note 12 Pro Speed Edition? Let us know in the comments below.
