Redmi Note 12 Series comparison

Xiaomi just launched the latest Redmi Note 12 series in China, and let me tell you, the specs are impressive! There are four different versions to choose from – the Redmi Note 12, Redmi Note 12 Pro, Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus, and the Redmi Note 12 Explorer Edition (basically just a Pro Plus with super-fast 210W charging).

Now, with all these options, it’s no wonder some people are feeling overwhelmed about which to choose. But don’t worry, that’s where this article comes in! We will compare the Redmi Note 12, the Pro, and the Pro Plus, to help you make an informed decision.

Let’s start with the Redmi Note 12 – it’s the most basic model of the series, but that doesn’t mean it lacks features. It has a powerful processor, a high-resolution camera, and a long-lasting battery. Plus, it’s the most affordable, making it an excellent choice for budget-conscious buyers.

Moving on to the Redmi Note 12 Pro – this one takes things up a notch with some premium features. It has a sleek design, a larger screen, and an even more powerful processor than the basic model. It also boasts a great camera setup, with multiple lenses for different types of photography.

Finally, we have the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus – this is the top-of-the-line model in the series. It has all the same great features as the Pro, but with some added bonuses. For example, it has a bigger battery, faster charging, and even better camera capabilities. This is a perfect choice if you’re a power user or a photography enthusiast.


In my opinion, the Redmi Note 12 Pro has the coolest design, especially the pink color version. However, the standard version is slimmer, making it more convenient for one-handed use. These phones aren’t made with fancy, high-end materials, but they come packed with some great features.


Let’s talk about the Pro and Pro Plus versions of the Redmi Note 12 series. These bad boys are packing some serious display power – we’re talking OLED panels that can show up to one billion colors! That’s whole lotta hues.

The display is also massive – 6.67 inches diagonally, to be exact. And if that wasn’t impressive enough, it also has a 120 Hz refresh rate, which makes for smooth and seamless scrolling. The display has Dolby Vision support and HDR10+ certification, so you know you’re getting top-notch visual quality.

But there is more – the Pro and Pro Plus versions also come with nifty features that the vanilla version doesn’t have. For example, they have an in-display fingerprint reader, which is excellent and super convenient. And they also have stereo speakers, which means you can enjoy your tunes or videos with some serious audio quality.
