The Redmi Note 12 series moniker has been confirmed via a JD listing, which suggests that the Redmi Note 12 Pro Extreme could be on the way. It should be noted that the Redmi Note 12 series is heading to China soon.
The Note 12 series is also reported to include several smartphones. Meanwhile, all sorts of speculation surrounding the upcoming line-up has surfaced online.
For example, the famous Digital Chat Station leak claims that the Redmi Note 12 will debut with the Dimensity 1080 SoC. For those who don’t know, the chipset is likely to go official in the fourth quarter of 2022. Last year, tech Youtuber Sahil Karoul predicted that the Note 12 series launch in China would take place in the second quarter of 2022.
Redmi may launch three Note 12 series smartphones. These include the base Note 12, Note 12 Pro and Note 12 Pro Plus 5G. All three phones may arrive in global markets.
However, some reports claim that the Note 12 series won’t see the light of day until next year. Still, Xiaomi is not following through on its plan to introduce the Note 12 series smartphones.
