Xiaomi’s Redmi has just unveiled the Redmi Note 12 series with a total of four devices – vanilla, Pro, Pro+ model, and a fancy Explorer Edition. The latter two are the more appealing phones with 200 MP cameras, 120W charging for the Pro+, and whopping 210W charging for the Explorer. However, the vanilla and Pro models also have their highlights. The fact is that the Redmi Note 12 series is here, but Xiaomi is not really done with those that came before. That said, the company is introducing the Redmi Note 11T Pro variant with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of Storage.

Perhaps, nothing is wrong with launching a new variant for the Redmi Note 11T Pro. After all, the device is relatively new. Moreover, we believe that for Xiaomi the Redmi Note 12 series is not here to succeed the Redmi Note 11T series. That makes much more sense when we look at performance. While the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ has a fancier 200 MP camera, its performance falls behind the Redmi Note 11T Pro+. The newer phone has the Dimensity 1080 which is way below the Dimensity 8100. So, Xiaomi won’t leave the 11T series behind until the release of the Redmi Note 12T series.
