Redmi Note 12 series arrives in Europe, here are the prices
Four Redmi Note 12 models are expanding to the European market – here’s a look at which models made the trip and how much they cost. Starting at the top, we have the Redmi Note 12 Pro+, Note 12 Pro and Note 12, plus a brand new 4G-only model also called the Redmi Note 12. We’ll cover the 4G model in detail in a separate article.
The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ and its 200 MP camera start at €500 for a device with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. This model comes with a 120W charger and a relatively large 5,000mAh battery. The Discovery edition, the one with an even faster 210W charger (and smaller 4,300mAh battery), won’t join it (not as we expected).
The Redmi Note 12 Pro is 20% cheaper at €400, although it only has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of 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 difference does it make? The time to full goes from 19 minutes to 46 minutes.
The vanilla Redmi Note 12 – note that this is the 5G, not the new 4G model – will start another €100 down, and a 4/128GB unit will set you back €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 the Chinese model lacks.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro+ • Redmi Note 12 Pro • Redmi Note 12
For the sake of completeness, the Redmi Note 12 4G starts at €200, but again we’ll cover it in more detail in a separate post.
To put things in perspective, the Redmi Note 11 Pro (4G, Helio G96) started at €330 for a 6/128GB device, the 5G version (Snapdragon 695) was €370. Both models had 108 MP cameras (no OIS) and 5,000 mAh batteries with 67W charging.
One last thing – the Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed variant is not coming to Europe either.
