The Redmi Note 12 series was launched in India in January, and three 5G phones were launched – Note 12 5G, Note 12 Pro 5G & Note 12 Pro+ 5G. The company has launched the Redmi Note 12 in India, a non-5G phone. The price starts at ₹14,999, which is interesting because, at this price, there are some excellent phones with 5G as well. As the name suggests, this is the successor to the Redmi Note 11, which launched with Snapdragon 680 last year.

This is the slimmest Note ever at 7.8mm.
