At the beginning of this year, Redmi launched its Note 12 series in the Chinese market, which garnered significant attention due to its impressive specifications and features. Yesterday, the company expanded its reach and released the Note 12 series in European markets, making the devices available to a wider audience.
Next week, the brand is all set to add another device to the Note 12 lineup, as they prepare to launch the Redmi Note 12 Turbo on March 28th. The company started teasing this new addition through the release of teaser posters. The upcoming product launch conference promises to be a grand event, with the unveiling of the first model in the Note series to feature the largest heat sink and the largest memory configuration.
The Xiaomi sub-brand revealed key specifications of the Redmi Note 12 Turbo through posters such as the largest heat sink and the largest memory configuration in the Note series, display, and RAM + storage configurations.
The Redmi Note 12 Turbo 5G has been confirmed to feature a 12-bit flexible OLED panel, which is a significant upgrade from its predecessor. The device will support an impressive 68.7 billion colors, 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut, 1920Hz PWM Dimming, and HDR10+ certification, ensuring a vibrant and immersive viewing experience.
The smartphone features a center-aligned punch-hole cutout and is teased to have much slimmer bezels than the iPhone 14, which is a testament to Redmi’s commitment to delivering sleek and modern designs. The brand claims that the Redmi Note 12 Turbo 5G has a 2.22mm thick chin, 1.95mm on the top, and 1.42mm on the sides, making it one of the thinnest devices in the market.
Moreover, the device will weigh 181 grams with an overall thickness of 7.9mm, making it lightweight and easy to carry. Xiaomi claims that the Redmi Note 12 Turbo 5G will offer an impressive 93.45 percent screen-to-body ratio, which is an impressive feat considering the size of the display.
The Redmi Note 12 Turbo 5G is set to be a gaming powerhouse, as it will be the first model in the Note series to be powered by the 2nd-generation Snapdragon 7+ processor. This processor uses the same architecture as the SD 8+ and has been specifically tuned for gaming, making it a perfect choice for mobile gamers.
It will be launched with a 16GB LPDDR5 RAM RAM version, which is a significant upgrade from its predecessor, and is another first in the Redmi Note series. Furthermore, the device will offer a whopping 1TB of UFS 3.1 storage, which is the highest storage capacity ever seen on the Note series, and even on most flagship models.
Previously, the highest memory and storage combination seen on the Note series and other flagship models was the 12GB+512GB storage configuration.
The Redmi Note 12 Turbo comes equipped with an e-sports grade vapor chamber for cooling. The first teaser for the device has revealed that it has a massive 3,725 square millimeter vapor chamber, which is larger than the previous generation’s cooling solution.
Vapor chamber cooling is a highly effective thermal management technique used in high-performance computing applications, such as gaming devices. It works by transferring heat from a heat source to a heat sink using a flat, sealed chamber containing a small amount of liquid that evaporates and condenses quickly. This process allows the vapor to move to cooler areas of the chamber, where it releases the absorbed heat before flowing back to the hotter area to repeat the process.
The Redmi Note 12 Turbo 5G also features diversion grooves, which help to dissipate heat more efficiently. These grooves offer up to a 35% improvement in heat dissipation compared to the previous iteration, ensuring that the device stays cool even during long gaming sessions.
In addition to the e-sports grade vapor chamber cooling and the 16GB RAM version with 1TB storage, the Redmi Note 12 Turbo 5G also boasts several other impressive features. The device features a large 5,500mAh battery, which should provide excellent battery life even with heavy use. It also supports 5G connectivity. The device comes with Android 13 and MIUI 14 pre-installed.
The Redmi Note 12 Turbo 5G has a triple main camera setup, which includes a 50MP wide camera. The camera module features LED flash, HDR, and Panorama views, allowing users to capture high-quality photos and videos. In terms of connectivity, the Note 12 Turbo features Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi, and NFC in selected markets, making it easy to connect to a wide range of devices and networks.
Finally, the device supports 67W wired charging via USB-C. The device will be available in several colors, including black, allowing users to choose the option that best suits their preferences.
