Photo Announcement. Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed ​​Edition - smartphone pseudo-acceleration

In addition to Redmi K60 series smartphones, Xiaomi also announced yesterday another device - Redmi Note 12 Pro 极速版. As it is easy to understand from the hieroglyphs in the title, the newcomer is intended exclusively for the Chinese market. Well, the approximate translation of this name into English is Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed ​​Edition.

Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed ​​Edition

Why Speed ​​Edition? Because it sounds nice. Nothing else.

In fact, I see exactly two significant differences from the original Redmi Note 12 Pro. Replaced the main camera and put a different chipset. A little more puffappearance - but these are trifles.

Redmi Note 12 Pro

Chipset. Was MediaTek Dimensity 1080, became Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G. Well, yes. The number of parrots in synthetic tests will increase slightly. From about 500 to 550 thousand in AnTuTu. Not important, as for me.

Memory. From 6 to 12 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of permanent memory. There was no support for memory cards, and no.

Standard battery, 5000 mAh. Charging is fast - 67 W.

The screen is still the same AMOLED with a diagonal of 6.67" (107 cm²) and a resolution of 1080x2400 (395 ppi). The refresh rate is up to 120 Hz.

Cameras. Frontal - 16 MP, auxiliarysolid - 8 + 2 MP (width and macro, of course) - everything is unchanged here.

Main camera. There was a sensor Sony IMX766 (50 MP, 1/1.56") with optical stabilization. Instead, they put Samsung ISOCELL HM2 (108 MP, 1/1.52") without optical stabilization. A strange decision, marketing, as for me. What is life like today without stabilization?

Other. There is support for 5G networks, an NFC module, a sixth Wi-Fi, an IR blaster. The fingerprint scanner, apparently, is located on the side.

No support for our LTE networks, of course.

The price of the newcomer is exactly the same as that of the ancestor. ¥1699 (₽16900, $242), ¥1799 (₽17900, $256) and ¥1999 (₽19900, $284) for 6+128GB, 8+256GB and 12+256GB respectively.
