The Redmi Note 12 series have long been the undisputed champ in the mid-range phone category. This time, Xiaomi is breaking the rules again with the Redmi Note 12 series, where it once again offers flagship-grade features at mid-range prices, and here’s why we’d recommend checking them out over other similar-priced phones.

200-megapixel OIS Camera – First on a Redmi Note smartphone

When was the last time you saw a 200-megapixel camera with optical stabilization on a smartphone? A mid-range phone? Not a chance.

Shot on Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is the first phone in its class to be fitted with a 200-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, which not only allows you to capture stills at a high resolution, but also greatly improves low light photography as the camera combines 9 pixels into one big pixel, resulting in brighter and more detailed shots.

Aside from that, shooting at 200-megapixels allow you to crop into photos and reframe your shot without losing detail, while you will also be assured of a clearer shot when zooming into your shot as it crops into the large sensor to achieve that.

Beautiful 120Hz AMOLED displays

The Redmi Note 12 series are fitted with 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED displays with a 120Hz refresh rate, which can hardly be found on mid-range phones, it also means that you get to experience buttery smooth animations and transitions on any Redmi Note 12 models.

If you are someone who binges movies on your smartphone, you will be glad to know that the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G’s display shows 1 Billion colors and is also Dolby Vision certified, coupled with the Dolby Atmos enhanced dual stereo speakers, it is one impressive media consumption device.

The Redmi Note 12 4G and 5G are equipped with the Snapdragon 685 and Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 chipset respectively, while the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is equipped with the Mediatek Dimensity 1080 chipset, these are very capable yet efficient processors that aces at everyday productivity, while the Dimensity 1080 chipset in particular excels in graphics performance.

All Redmi Note 12 series are fitted with a 5000mAh battery that effortlessly offers up to 2 days of moderate usage, while the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G in particular supports 120W HyperCharge, which is made possible with the Xiaomi P1 Surge chipset that adaptively adjusts charging wattage to juice up its large battery, making it the first mid-range phone with such a huge battery capacity to be able to get fully charged from 0-100% in just 30 minutes.
