Redmi Note 12 series officially arrived in India after the massive success of the Note 11 series, which was announced last year. The company has started bringing their mid-range Note series smartphones with AMOLED displays giving tough competition to other brands.
However, the Note 11 Series lacked 5G connectivity last year, being behind brands like Realme, Samsung, and OPPO. Redmi has filled the gap this time with the use of 5G chipsets on the devices to keep up with the competitors. Moreover, the brand has brought advancements to its camera department by introducing a 200MP sensor on the Note 12 Pro + variant.
