Redmi Note 12 5G, Redmi Note 12 Pro, Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus, and Redmi Note 12 Explorer Edition have been launched in China. The Pro and Explorer Edition models bring notable features like a 200MP Samsung HMX primary camera, 210W fast charging support, and a 120Hz OLED display. Redmi Note 12 series prices start from around Rs 13,000 and the phones are expected to launch in India at some point.

Fans of Redmi India are now probably wondering when Redmi Note 12 will launch in India. While we don’t have an actual date, here’s a look at the possible timeline for the Redmi Note 12 series India launch.

When will Redmi Note 12 launch in India?

The Redmi Note 12 series has already received the BIS certification, which is a clear indication to suggest the phone will definitely release in India. The listing showed the phones debuted under Xiaomi branding but not the Redmi label.

Going back in time, the Redmi Note 11 series was launched in China around the same time last year i.e 28th October 2021. The lineup included the Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11 Pro, and Redmi Note 11 Pro+. After debuting in China, the Redmi Note 11 series was launched globally in January. Later, the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S landed in India in February, while the Pro models followed in March.

Xiaomi could launch the Redmi Note 12 series globally in January 2023, with an India launch by March.

Going by this, we expect the Redmi Note 12 series will follow a similar trajectory. Xiaomi could launch the phones globally in January 2023, with an India launch by March. However, this is considering there aren’t any major changes to the usual announcement cycle. It is also worth noting that the Redmi Note 11 series that launched globally and in India had a slightly different set of specifications to the China models. We will have to wait and see what changes Xiaomi will be making to the Redmi Note 12 global and Indian models.

As for the pricing, the Redmi Note 12 price in India should start at around Rs 13,500, similar to the Redmi Note 11. Will there be a Redmi Note 12S? Well, we will just have to wait and see.
