Why the Xiaomi 12 Pro is a Good Deal for Rs 49,999

2023 flagship smartphones have become more expensive compared to their predecessors. While the newer flagships offer upgrades in several areas, the price compared to the outgoing model has increased steeply. While this might be subjective, the performance: value ratio overall might not be the same for many buyers.

Considering how the 12 Pro packs some top-notch hardware, which should offer a great user experience for the coming years, the Rs 49,999 seems quite attractive. On top, users are promised to get three years of software updates and four years of security patches. This means that the Android 14 and Android 15 update should be available soon after they are officially available. Xiaomi, as mentioned above, has already rolled out the Android 13 update for the 12 Pro.

The 12 Pro also offers some quality camera experience. You can check our detailed Xiaomi 12 Pro review, which not only shares our camera review but also covers other aspects of the phone. Alternatively, you can watch the video below to know the pros and cons of the 12 Pro.
