Putting rest to all the leaks and rumours, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi finally launched its new Redmi Note 12 series in China. The new lineup consists of four phones- Redmi Note 12, Note 12 Pro, Note 12 Pro Plus and Note 12 Explorer edition. The new series succeeds the Redmi Note 11 lineup which was launched earlier this year in India.

The Explorer Edition is touted as the most premium model in the series with top-class features. As confirmed by the company before, the smartphone supports 210W fast charging, which as per company claims, can charge the 4300mAh battery inside in just 9 minutes. Furthermore, the phone fits in 200MP Samsung HPX primary camera sensor which will most likely click better photos than what we see from usual Redmi phones.
