That may sound unbelievable, but Xiaomi already launched a total of 18 phones under the Redmi Note 11 series. It’s a true naming mess with Redmi Note 11R, Note 11S, Note 11 Pro, 11 Pro+, Chinese Note 11, Global Note 11 and etc. Now, the company is finally ready to move on and launch the Redmi Note 12 series. Of course, that’s the beginning of a new massive family. The company will launch the Redmi Note 12 series this month. So, Xiaomi has at least 10 days to launch the new phones.
According to the company’s announcement, the Redmi Note 12 series will introduce “two major technologies”. One of them being “first in the world”. We have a few clues about what Xiaomi may have in tow with these releases.
Redmi Note 12 series with 210W charging and 200 MP camera
For now, there is no official word about the names of the new phones. However, we expect them to come as Redmi Note 12, Note 12 Pro, and Redmi Note 12 Pro+. These devices were certified, and we already know the charging speed they will support. The Note 12 will come with 67W charging. The Note 12 Pro will have 120W charging. The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ will bring a whopping 210W fast charging.
The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ will be the more appealing device in the lineup. We’re pretty sure that the 210W fast charging is one of the new technologies Xiaomi is teasing. Perhaps, that’s the one that the company will highlight as “world’s first”.
According to the leaks, the Pro phones will bring the latest Dimensity 1080 SoC. That’s not as powerful as the Dimensity 8100 that is present in the Redmi Note 11T Pro+. However, the Note 12 Pro and the 12 Pro+ aren’t sequels to the Note 11T phones. You can expect the 12T to be better.

The first mid-range phone with a 200MP camera?
Moving on, Xiaomi may bring a 200 MP camera phone in the Redmi Note 12 Pro+. So far, we didn’t see leaks pointing to this, but it makes sense. The company launched the Xiaomi 12T Pro with a 200 MP camera. They will inevitably bring this camera to the mid-range series. The next year will certainly be marked by the arrival of 200MP camera mid-range phones. As a result, Xiaomi has the opportunity to be the first. To recall, the Redmi Note series was the first to bring a 108MP camera to the mid-range scene.
The teaser poster itself apparently shows a camera lens. If that’s the case, then we’re certainly looking at the launch of a 200MP camera phone.
Other possible specs include AMOLED displays with high-refresh-rate and 5G connectivity. These devices will likely hit the Chinese market, and we will have to wait a few months to see them coming to the global scene.
Considering the company’s goal of launching the new Redmi Note 12 phones in October. Then, we will likely see a lot of teasers in the coming days, followed by the launch date announcement.
