Xiaomi is expected to launch the Redmi Note 12 series soon in China. The company is likely to launch multiple phones in the Note 12 series lineup.

Xiaomi has not confirmed any details about the Note 12 series. Meanwhile, there could be a fourth new smartphone with a new moniker in the lineup.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro Extreme Edition has been spotted on China’s JD.com. The listing suggests that all four Redmi Note series smartphones launching in the coming weeks will support 5G. The listing reveals the moniker of the four phones ahead of the launch.

The Redmi Note 12 series could continue to get multiple new models. We can expect the Redmi Note 12 series to debut in November in China. According to the JD listing (via), the Note 12 series will include the Note 12 5G, Note 12 Pro 5G, and Note 12 Pro+ 5G. The fourth smartphone, which could be the most premium offering in the Note lineup, could launch as the Note 12 Pro Extreme Edition or Note 12 Pro Ultra.

The listing does not confirm any specifications of the four models. However, some details about the Redmi Note 12 series have leaked in the past. According to a recent leak, Xiaomi could launch a Redmi Note series phone with a Dimensity 1080 SoC. The 6nm chipset was launched recently by MediaTek and features two ARM Cortex-A78 CPU cores operating at up to 2.6GHz. 

The Note 12 Pro Ultra, aka the Note 12 Pro Extreme Edition, could feature the new MediaTek SoC.  Xiaomi has used the Extreme Edition moniker for Redmi’s K-series smartphones, which is positioned as a performance-focused all-rounder phone. The Note 12 series could get its first Extreme Edition phone with a powerful chipset under the hood. It would not be a surprise if the Note 12 Pro Extreme Edition, aka the Note 12 Pro Ultra, launches globally as a POCO phone. Alternatively, it could launch in select markets as the Xiaomi 12i.

It is also rumoured that one of the Pro models will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, which will be a first for the Note series. The standard Note 12 will come with a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro camera.

Xiaomi’s upcoming Redmi smartphones were also spotted on the 3C certification website. The listing of the standard Note 12, Note 12 Pro and the Note 12 Pro+ 5G revealed that they would feature 67W, 120W and 210W fast charging support. 

The company has not revealed any details about the official launch timeline of the Note 12 series. We expect the phones to debut in the coming weeks based on the previous launch timelines. The Note 11T was launched last year in November. Therefore, it would not be a surprise if the Note 12T or any other phone from the series debuts alongside. 

Xiaomi is expected to announce the official launch date of the Note 12 series soon. We will share more details as and when available.
