Xiaomi could soon launch a new smartphone at 200 euros: the Redmi 12. A fairly basic model, which would still bring an ultra-wide-angle, but which could be less interesting than the Redmi Note 12 already released.
Last March, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 12, Redmi Note 12 5G, Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus. A myriad of smartphones at all prices. But the Chinese manufacturer would not be outdone: it would be preparing to release the Redmi 12, a smartphone at 200 euros, if we are to believe the words of Roland Quandt, journalist from WinFuture.
A question already arises: in this price range, the Redmi Note 12 is already hitting very hard. So what could the Redmi 12 bring in comparison?
A much worse screen than the Redmi Note 12
According to the German media, this Xiaomi smartphone would be equipped with a 6.79-inch IPS LCD panel with a Full HD + definition (i.e. 2460 by 1080 pixels) and with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. This, even though the Redmi Note 12 has an Amoled display and has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. On this point, the two devices would therefore not be equal.

On the hardware part, we would be entitled to the MediaTek Helio G88 Octacore SoC. Which would not make it possible to have 5G: you would have to be content with 4G, but at 200 euros, this is nothing abnormal. On the memory side, there would be 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card (up to an additional 1 TB).
Ultra-wide-angle at 200 euros: what the Redmi 12 would offer
Roland Quandt specifies that Xiaomi’s Redmi 12 would have a main photo sensor of 50 Mpx (f / 1.8), an ultra-wide-angle sensor of 8 Mpx (f / 2.2), a macro sensor of 2 Mpx ( whose photo quality can be doubted) as well as an 8 Mpx selfie sensor. On this point, it is equivalent to the Redmi Note 12, although the latter has a 13 Mpx selfie sensor.
We also learn that the Redmi 12 would weigh 198.5 grams for 8.17 millimeters thick and that it would be IP53 certified (protected against splashing water). The German journalist tells us of some concern about Wi-Fi on this model: according to him, it only supports the 2.4 GHz band, not 5 GHz a priori. Finally, the Redmi 12 would be powered by a 5000 mAh battery rechargeable at a maximum power of 18 W, via a charger not supplied with purchase. Here too, the Redmi Note 12 does better with a charging power of 33 W.
A Redmi vs Redmi Note battle around 200 euros
This Redmi 12 would be “ Soon available for sale at a price of 199 euros in black and white colors. Nothing indicates that it will come out one day in France,WinFuturenot having specified its availability, but it would however seem logical.
For its part, the Redmi Note 12 was launched at the official price of 200 euros last March, but in its configuration with 64 GB of storage. For the 128 GB version, it would normally go up to 250 euros… but that’s not counting the few promotions that are already lowering this price significantly.
