Redmi recently launched the Note 12 series of smartphones globally. The series consists of four models — the Redmi Note 12 5G, Note 12 Pro 5G, Note 12 Pro+ 5G, and the newly unveiled Redmi Note 12 4G. Apart from the 4G device, all the Note 12 models launched in India earlier this year. The company confirmed that the Note 12 4G will launch in the Indian market on March 30. Now, Redmi India has confirmed that another device, the Redmi 12C will launch in India on the same day.
On the company landing page, Xiaomi reveals that the phone will feature the same MediaTek Helio G85 chipset it launched with in China and Indonesia previously. The company also confirms that the budget offering will be priced under Rs. 10,000 in India.
