Four Redmi Note 12 models are expanding to the European market – here is a look at which models made the trip and how much they cost. Starting from the top, we have the Redmi Note 12 Pro+, Note 12 Pro and Note 12, plus a brand new 4G-only model also named Redmi Note 12. We’ll cover the 4G model in full detail in a separate article.
The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ and its 200MP camera will start at €500 for a unit with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. This model comes with a 120W charger and a relatively big 5,000mAh battery. The Discovery edition, the one with an even faster 210W charger (and smaller 4,300mAh battery) will not be joining it (not that we expected it to).
The Redmi Note 12 Pro is 20% cheaper at €400, though that is with only 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Also, compared to the plus model, this one has a 50MP main camera (with a slightly smaller sensor, but it still has OIS) and the 5,000mAh battery charges at 67W. What kind of difference does that make? The time to full goes from 19 minutes to 46 minutes.
The vanilla Redmi Note 12 – note that this is the 5G one, not the new 4G model – will start another €100 down and a 4/128GB unit will cost you €300. It’s also important to note that this isn’t the Note 12 from China but an improved version – it has Gorilla Glass 3, a microSD slot and an 8MP ultra wide camera, things that the Chinese model lacks.
For completeness’ sake, the Redmi Note 12 4G will start at €200, but again we cover that one in more details in a separate post.
To put things in perspective, the Redmi Note 11 Pro (4G, Helio G96) started at €330 for a 6/128GB unit, the 5G version (Snapdragon 695) was €370. Both models featured 108MP cameras (no OIS) and 5,000mAh batteries with 67W charging.
One last thing – the Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed variant isn’t coming to Europe either.
Well answer is pretty simple. Answer is called: Greed for money.
