The Redmi Note 12 series is launching tomorrow in China. The brand is expected to unveil at least three smartphones in the upcoming launch, the Redmi Note 12 Pro, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+, and Redmi Note 12 Explorer Edition. Ahead of the launch, the renders of the three devices have surfaced on Weibo – the Chinese microblogging site. In a separate development, the details about the Redmi Note 12 series global launch have surfaced on the web, courtesy of Sudhanshu Ambhore.

As per the tipster, the Redmi Note 12 series for the global markets will be completely different compared to the Chinese market. The tipster further reveals that the Redmi Note 12 series for the global market will debut sometime in early 2023. Let us take a closer look at the Redmi Note 12 series devices.

Redmi Note 12 Series: Renders and Specifications

All three Redmi Note 12 series smartphones are said to come equipped with OLED display panels. Despite featuring OLED panels, these smartphones will rely on side-mounted fingerprint scanners in a typical Redmi fashion. Rumours are rife that all three devices will be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1080 processor. To those unaware, the Dimensity 1080 is the successor of last year’s MediaTek Dimensity 920 which Redmi had used in the Note 11 Pro series for the Chinese market.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro is tipped to come with a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor with OIS support. Whereas, the Note 12 Pro+ and Note 12 Explorer Edition will offer a 200MP Samsung ISOCELL HPX sensor.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro series devices will pack 5000mAh battery units. The standard Redmi Note 12 Pro will support 67W fast charging. Whereas, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ will offer 120W fast charging. There is also a Redmi Note 12 Explorer Edition which is tipped to offer 210W fast charging. The Explorer Edition will also have 210W written with Redmi branding on the rear panel.

Redmi Note 12 Series For Global Markets Won’t Get 210W Fast Charging

Xiaomi is said to introduce the Redmi Note 12 series for global markets sometime in the first quarter of 2023. As per the leaked information, the Redmi Note 12 series for global markets will be completely different compared to the Chinese variants. The tipster also claims that Xiaomi doesn’t plan to bring 210W fast charging in the Redmi Note 12 series global variants.

This was expected since the Redmi Note 11 Pro series (Chinese variants) made it to India as Xiaomi 11i series. We can expect Xiaomi to take the same route once again with the Redmi Note 12 Pro series. As of now, nothing much is known about the Redmi Note 12 series global variants. However, we can expect to learn more about upcoming devices in the coming weeks.
