Redmi 12C specifications with a powerful battery and great features
Xiaomi's Redmi brand recently unveiled the Redmi K60 series smartphones, the Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition, and a slew of accessories. Redmi also announced a new entry-level smartphone, the Redmi 12C, before the end of 2022.
The Redmi 12C features a 6.71" HD+ display with a notch for the 5MP selfie camera. Its non-slip back panel with diagonal stripes houses a fingerprint scanner and a dual camera setup led by a 50MP sensor. Redmi doesn't say much about the second camera, but we suspect it's a depth sensor.
The Helio G85 SoC powers the 12C, which has up to 6GB LPDDR4X RAM and up to 128GB storage that can be expanded to 512GB. The smartphone runs MIUI 13 (likely based on Android 12), but not all MIUI 13 features are available on the 12C because it runs an "exclusive optimized version" of MIUI 13.
A 5,000 mAh battery, a micro-USB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack round out the Redmi 12C's features. It has a dedicated microSD card slot and supports 4G networks.
The Redmi 12C is available in four colors and three memory capacities: 4GB/64GB, 4GB/128GB, and 6GB/128GB for CNY699 ($100/€95/8,385), CNY799 ($115/€110/9,585), and CNY899 ($130/€120/10,785). It will be available for purchase in China beginning January 1 via Xiaomi's official Chinese website, but there is no word on its availability in other markets.
