Redmi’s new Note 12 Pro is a new model introduced in China and India. If you are looking for a mid-range phone, they have cleverly made one that rivals the best of them. This phone is the successor to last year’s Redmi Note 11 Pro and has everything you would expect outside of high-end features like OLED screens and 5G connectivity.
It is a mid-range smartphone with top-of-the-line specifications. Redmi has focused on the phone’s camera, battery life, and design with its Note Pro 12.
This article will take a closer look at what this new model offers, how it stacks up against competitors, and what might be coming next from Redmi.
It features an upgraded 50MP primary camera that is supported by a feature called AI Scene Shooting. It will identify the subject of your picture, including animals and plants, and choose the best appropriate settings. Taking pictures in low light conditions will automatically increase ISO to capture more light so you can get clear images even in dark places. This makes it easier to take high-quality pictures with less fiddling by the user.
It records video at 4k resolution and 30fps. This is not high-resolution compared to other models but is still quite helpful. New Art frames are included and can be used to make your pictures look more professional.
The front-facing camera is upgraded to 32MP and features a soft skin bokeh effect for selfies. The cameras can take great pictures with sharpness, color, and depth. You will notice that the aspect ratio leans towards bezels in many cases, which can be misleading if looked at from a distance. The screen is not curved, but it has chamfered edges, making it look like one in real life.
It has a 6.39-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19: 9. It’s nice and colorful but does not have the deep blacks that flexible OLED screens provide due to its LCD screen technology. It has a refresh rate of 120Hz, which is fast enough for a smooth video. It also supports Dolby Vision, with a peak brightness of 900 nits which is quite bright. It also has a reading mode that can reduce blue light at night.
It’s bright enough for daytime use but won’t be great for those who work at night or late evening. The screen is protected from scratches by Gorilla Glass Victus and will not break easily if dropped because of its plastic back cover rather than a glass cover like some other models on the market today.
The device powers a 5000mAh battery along with 67W fast charging technology. This gives it support for 20W wireless charging.
The battery performance will depend heavily on how you use your phone and if you are using the device for 4G, but overall it’s good enough for many people’s needs. However, please carry an extra charger if you need more juice.
It has MediaTek’s latest mid-range chip with an octa-core 2.0GHz CPU and the MediaTek Helio P60 chip with 6GB of RAM. This means this phone can handle all the most popular games available today, and they will run very smoothly on its high-definition display.
It has 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, which gives you plenty of space to store all your favorite apps, games, and media content. However, only about 16GB can be used for apps and media files.
The device will be able to work with 5G networks in the future.
It also has an infrared port that allows you to control TV and air conditioners from your phone, send messages remotely, or view the video you take. It also features dual VoLTE technologies so you can choose between GSM and WCDMA lines when making calls, connecting faster to 4G networks.
