As soon as the new year began, Xiaomi began its smartphone launch binge. Today marked the introduction of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus, Redmi Note 12 Pro, and Redmi Note 12 in India. The Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus stole the spotlight among the trio of smartphones thanks to its MediaTek Dimensity 1080 processor, 120Hz refresh rate, and 120W fast charging support. In the Indian market, it will directly compete with the recently released Realme 10 Pro Plus.
The mid-range smartphone market in India is poised to be significantly affected by the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus 5G. We recently used the gadget for a while. I have written my thoughts in this Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus quick review based on my experience.
First impressions of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus: Cost and Availability
The 8GB RAM/256GB internal storage Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus model costs Rs 29,999. The 12GB RAM version, on the other hand, costs Rs 32,999. The three colour options for the smartphone are Arctic White, Obsidian Black, and Iceberg Blue. On January 11 at noon, the smartphone will go on sale for the first time on the e-commerce sites Flipkart, mi home, and mi.com.
Quick Review of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus: Design and Display
A glass back and a plastic chassis complement the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus’ flat display design. The smartphone’s rear panel features a camera island in the upper left corner and the Redmi logo in the lower left. The colour of the camera island harmonises with the back panel’s colour. Additionally, the device’s slight back curvature makes it comfortable to hold. The rear panel’s only flaw was how easily smudges registered on it.
The smartphone’s volume rockers and power button are also located at the right spine of the device. The in-display fingerprint scanner has been eliminated by Xiaomi, which is another significant aspect of the device. This time, the power button and the side-mounted fingerprint sensor are combined.
In terms of the display, the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus has a 6.67-inch Pro-AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz. It has Gorilla Glass 5 as the panel’s protective layer. In addition, the device can produce approximately 1.07 billion colours, has a maximum brightness of 900 nits, and supports the DCI-P3 colour gamut. Additionally, the smartphone supports Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and Widevine L1 certification to improve your streaming experience.
Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus from Xiaomi A brief review of software and hardware
The MediaTek 1080 5G processor powering the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus’ high-end model is paired with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The smartphone also runs MIUI 13, which is based on the Android 12 operating system. Given that the majority of Xiaomi’s competitors are releasing phones with the Android 13 operating system, it is a major turnoff for many users.
According to Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus will receive four years of security updates in addition to two years of Android updates. Without a doubt, the support’s time frame is more than adequate. The device’s lack of ads is its most amazing feature, though bloatware is still present. This is great news for those looking for mid-range smartphones. The phone operated smoothly, and we had no trouble running several applications, games, and other things. In more detail, we’ll go over it in our Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus review.
Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus Camera from Xiaomi
The Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus has a triple rear camera system with a 200MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultra wide-angle shooter, and a 2MP macro shooter as part of its optics. The phone’s primary camera also features Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for both still images and moving pictures. In the initial tests, the smartphone takes good pictures in both daylight and low light.
The smartphone boasts a 13MP front camera for selfies and video calls. We can state with confidence that the selfie camera performed better than average. We will test it further and provide more specific information in our comprehensive review, though.
Quick Review of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus: Battery
A 4980mAh battery and 120W fast charging are both supported by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus. The device charged from empty to full during testing in 20 minutes and a few seconds, which is absurd. We can say with certainty that users will only need to spend a brief amount of time charging their devices. Another crucial detail is that the device’s charger is packaged with a box.
