They are attractive and bright screens with lots of detail. This is a good display, and when surfing web content, social media, or other media, you will see a benefit. The display has a 144Hz refresh rate which adjusts the usage of the user giving a smooth experience.

Read More: Walton Orbit Y50 4G Review: Does it offer value for money Rear Camera Series While most smartphone cameras provide a 50 MP main camera in a budget range, Xiaomi took a bold move with a 64 MP wide camera featuring an aperture of f/1.9, a sensor size of 1/1.72-inch, and 0.8µm. It works great in good lighting and gives a clear full detailed image. However, you may not get the expected performance in the dark. But you will get a slightly better image using a dedicated night mode setup. However, sometimes the dedicated night mode may make the image look artificial. The camera’s shutter speed is fast and responsive, and there is very little delay in processing the image. Coming up to an 8 MP ultrawide lens with an aperture of f/2.2 and a 120-degree field-of-view. It secures average clicks with minimal detail and very few distortions. Dynamic range is virtually acceptable, and there are a couple of clicks that come out with a lot of noise. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi A1+ Review: Budget phone with fingerprint sensor The 2MP macro sensor comes with an aperture of f/2.4. It is fine for close-up images, but that is about it. It doesn’t provide good picture quality and should be used at your discretion. There are options for shooting modes, such as Auto, Portrait, and Long Exposure. Bursts, clones, and other features will make the photography even more appealing. Front Camera When using the 16 MP wide selfie lens featuring f/2.5 aperture, the phone captures pictures that appear natural and capture lively skin tones. During the daytime, the camera uses a reddish hue that makes the user appear as if the person is wearing makeup. If the beautification mode is off, then the skin tone comes naturally. The selfies look enhanced here, but the quality of detail is preserved. Xiaomi could make the selfie lens better. Read More: vivo Y22s 4G Review: Will it survive competition? Video Capacity The rear primary sensor can shoot up to 4K footage at 30fps. You can capture 1080p videos at 30fps or 60fps. While with a selfie camera you can capture 1080p videos at 30fps. Performance The Xiaomi K50i 5G smartphone is based on the Dimensity 8100 5nm chipset by MediaTek that makes the daily routine a breeze. The graphic unit is enriched with Mali-G610 MC6 GPU. Multiple functions are handled without issue, even if various apps run simultaneously in the background. Switching between applications is seamless, and apps open and load quickly. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Review: Can it fulfil users’ expectations Paired together with 8GB RAM, the smartphone is significantly faster and smoother, and 256GB storage offers ample space to store whatever content you like. However, you can buy other variations, too, such as 128GB 6GB RAM and 128GB 8GB RAM. Redmi K50i runs MIUI 13 out of the box using the Android 12 OS. This smartphone likewise permits you to customize it by playing around with wallpapers, widgets, and applications. It comes with plenty of bloatware, so make sure you uninstall them to get a faster experience if you don’t need them. However, the good thing is that there is no adware. Redmi K50i has dual stereo speakers that support Dolby Atmos sound. The sound quality is good, but low and mid frequencies lack depth and richness. The bottom speaker sounds slightly better than the one on top, but overall, both of them could have been significantly better. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack for old-school listeners. Read More: Apple iPad, iPad Pro 2022 Review: World’s most advanced tablets Battery and Charger The Xiaomi Redmi K50i 5G features a 5080mAh battery that can easily last an entire day with moderate usage.

The phone comes with 67w fast charging features. With the USB Type-C charger, you can charge the device from 0 to 100% in about 45-50 minutes.

The Chinese electronics company Xiaomi’s subsidiary company Redmi was first introduced in July 2013 as a low-cost smartphone line. In 2019 it was separated into a sub-brand of Xiaomi to produce entry-level to mid-range Smartphones and gadgets. A1+ debuts in September 2022 under Redmi's entry-level lineup 'A' series. Let’s take a look at the specs, advantages, and limitations of Redmi A1+. Key Features of Xiaomi Redmi A1+ Design and Features The Xiaomi Redmi A1+ has preserved the dimensions of 164.9 x 76.8 x 9.1 mm or 6.49 x 3.02 x 0.36 in. It weighs 192 g. and has two SIM cards. It has a loudspeaker and a 3.5mm jack. The WLAN communications such as Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, hotspots, and so on are also there. It supports Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC. It has GPS, as well as A-GPS, GALILEO, GLONASS, and BDS. The phone bears a fingerprint scanner at the upper mid portion of the backside. It is probably the first smartphone in the international market to offer a fingerprint sensor. The rear side of the phone is made of premium-category plastic. It has a leather texture that gives an utmost elegant look. The back side also rooms a dual camera with a flashlight at the left upper corner of the phone. Read Morevivo Y22s 4G Review: Will it survive competition?: There are three color options available for the Redmi A1, including light green, dark black, and light blue. For the purpose of this review, we used the option with the light green color, and we found that the natural hue pairs well with the simple design of the smartphone. Display The 6.52-inch IPS screen on the front of the device offers a typical 60 Hz refresh rate and an HD+ resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels. The display has a 120 Hz touch-sampling rate, a 400-nit screen brightness, and glass that resists scratches to safeguard the screen. Additionally, the front of the device sports a notch that houses a 5 MP selfie camera. On the phone, there is no fingerprint reader. If you want to use it to view SD video, the display is fairly good. The display has a ceiling that it reaches rather early, and there isn't much more you can do with it after that. The outcomes were in line with what one would expect from a budget smartphone when we viewed videos on YouTube, Netflix, and Hotstar. Not really unique, but excellent for the cost. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Review: Know the Pros and Cons In addition, the display is capable of reaching a maximum brightness of 400 nits and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Although the sensation of scrolling is satisfactory, the haptic stimulation has been turned up to a significant degree. It's possible that you'll need to spend some time configuring the phone in order to fix that issue. Camera The cameras on the Redmi A1 Plus are similarly more focused on getting the job done than on wowing users with their quality or capabilities. When the lighting conditions are favorable, the 8-megapixel primary sensor on the rear of the device produces shots of satisfactory quality. It even does a respectable job with portrait photos (aided by the secondary 0.3-megapixel snapper on the back). If you do not go into this situation expecting top-of-the-line colors and detail, you will not be disappointed. Instead, you will end up with snapshots that are excellent enough to post on social media and send in emails and texts. Read More: Infinix Zero Ultra Review: Worth the hype? Videos are, at most, suitable for sharing on social media, although there is a useful time-lapse mode available. When there is not enough light, either still or moving images will have worse quality. Even while the color reproduction of the 5-megapixel front-facing camera is not quite up to grade, if you take your selfies in well-lit environments, you will have photos that are worthy of being shared. This is not a camera for serious photographers; rather, it is a point-and-shoot model in the traditional sense. If you take enough precautions, you should be able to get passable results. Perhaps even the odd one out that stands out. Read More: OPPO F21 Pro 4G Review: Special attraction for Shakib fans Performance and Hardware The Redmi A1 Plus is driven by a chipset identified as a MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22. The performance of this processor is satisfactory when it comes to carrying out fundamental activities like navigating the internet, making video calls, utilizing navigation, and many other activities. 32 gigabytes (GB) of storage space is provided, and 3 GB of RAM. The Redmi A1 Plus utilizes Android 12 GO, which is an operating system developed by Google specifically for use in low-cost smartphones. On top of this operating system, you won't find much evidence of MIUI at all. The user interface is rather uncluttered, and with the exception of Facebook Lite, the phone does not have any bloatware applications. We put the smartphone's graphics processing unit, or GPU, to the test by playing some light games like Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, and Clash Royale. The handset features a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? As soon as we were satisfied with the smartphone's overall performance, we fired up Garena Free Fire Max and got to playing. Even though there were some delays, the phone performed a good job of providing a gaming experience that was excellent. Battery and Charging The Redmi A1 Plus features a battery pack with a capacity of 5,000 mAh. As it is combined with the phone's basic hardware and operating system, results in extremely long battery life. The smartphone's battery was easily able to last for two days with moderate use, which included sending and receiving messages on WhatsApp, browsing the web, listening to music, taking pictures, and watching nearly two hours of content each day. If you use the battery backup system more sparingly, you should have no problem reaching three days.

Price of Redmi A1+ in Bangladesh The Xiaomi Redmi A1 Plus is not yet available officially in Bangladesh. In the Indian market, the phone costs INR 7,499 or BDT 9253. The conversion rate here is 1 INR = 1.23 BDT. However, the official price of Redmi A1+ in Bangladesh may vary due to tax and other issues. Conclusion In this phone, the manufacturer has included all of the necessary features that consumers anticipate seeing on an affordable smartphone without sacrificing the device's overall performance. A few features like the chin and bezel width and the VGA camera on the rear could be improved for a better experience. Read More: Xiaomi launches Redmi Note 12 series: Can it hold the legacy? On the whole, the Redmi A1+ phone provides a standard experience under the budget range. Those who are upgrading from a feature phone may consider Xiaomi Redmi A1+.
Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi launched four new phones, Redmi Note 12, Note 12 Pro, Note 12 Pro+, and Note 12 Explorer, under its latest Redmi Note 12 series on November 1 in China. The phones are expected to be launched in Bangladesh and other Asian countries by the end of November. Let’s take a look at the key specs of the Redmi Note 12 Pro. Key Features of Redmi Note 12 Pro Design The Note 12 Pro represents a continuation of the previous generation’s design. The front screen with a flat back panel and a straight-back frame basically resembles the design of the Note 11T Pro. But 12 Pro has a larger, more powerful camera module. It comes in four colors, black, blue, white, violet or purple. The side still includes a power button that functions as a fingerprint too. On the top, you will get an IR emitter, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and NFC. However, the SIM card slot does not function with TF cards. Read More: Apple iPad, iPad Pro 2022 Review: World’s most advanced tablets The 187g weight, as well as the 7.9 mm width, contributes to the Note 12 Pro feeling like a lightweight device despite its 162.9 by 76 height and length. Note 12 Pro should get a very high score for its form factor at a mid-range. Display The Note 12 screen looks the same as the one on the 11 Pro, but there are some small upgrades. A larger 6.67-inch OLED display uses a smaller bezel, which yields the most noticeable difference between those two devices. It looks more beautiful than average mid-range phones do from the front. The quality of the screen is excellent and creates a diamond-quality pixel. The display’s resolution is 1080 × 2400 pixels with a 120Hz refresh rate. It uses a 1920Hz pulse-width modulation dimming in low brightness and supports Dolby Vision (900 nits peak brightness). The quality of this screen is best in the same price range. Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 Hardware Performance on the Note 12 Pro’s weaker side comes from using the Dimensity 1080 chip, a 6nm mid-range MediaTek chip. Both AnTuTu and 3DMark are showing very similar ratings to the prior Generation Dimensity 920 with a 968,607 AnTuTu score. The graphic unit is enriched with Mali-G68 MC4 GPU. The phone runs on MIUI 13 OS on top of Android 12. Ultimately, you can evaluate the level of performance of a chip when you visit the framerate information for each video game. Of course, it’s no problem for PUBG on a mobile device. As per Genshin Impact, its average fps was less than 40, which is not an excellent performance. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? So, it is better to buy Dimensity 8100 phone if you prefer a better chip. So, Note 12 Pro falls behind the Note 11T pro in hardware comparison. Storage Although you cannot add an external memory card, the four memory variation should be good enough for you. Note 12 Pro comes with 128GB 6GB RAM, 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 8GB RAM, and 256GB 12GB RAM version. But you might not get all the versions in Bangladesh. Here you get UFS 2.2 data transfer technology. Read More: realme C30 Review: An entry-level phone with smooth performance Camera Redmi focuses on the camera of Note 12 Pro. However, it does not use the latest 200MP main camera. But Redmi emphasizes filters and Art frames. Seven new filters have been added to the Note 12 series, all of which make photos appear grainy while altering the color. Moreover, some scenes may look excellent on these filters, making them great for film photography. So, this phone is recommended for people who enjoy photography. Rear Camera Series The back camera includes a 50 MP wide-angle main camera that features an f/1.9 aperture, 24mm lens width, and 1/1.56-lens size. This sensor has introduced a new optical image stabilizer this time. Read More: Infinix Zero Ultra Review: Worth the hype? The sensor part has also become larger, so the video recordings or photos in dim light have improved over the previous context. In particular, the 2x magnification is just fine with handshakes, even as the recent 5x magnification has no shaking in the dark as it was before with previous models. Now the night vision setting is even more fun. It does not improve the dynamic range but just lowers the highlights and darkens the dark portions. Consequently, it makes night scenes more enjoyable and relaxing without noise. Some scenes demand stronger highlights, and it can cause unwanted exposure, just like a neon box, which doesn’t look as good as the automatic mode. And oftentimes, the color temperature is too cool, so it can be difficult to take a good photo at night with the Note 12 Pro if you lack expertise and skill. Read More: Tecno Pova 4 Pro Review: Budget gaming phone with a massive battery Besides, Note 12 Pro’s rear camera series includes an 8 MP ultrawide camera featuring an aperture of f/1.9, 119˚ (ultrawide) field-of-view, and 1/4" lens size. It also has a 2 MP macro sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. However, the macro camera performance is not the best. It is not recommended for frequent use. Front Camera On the front side, Redmi Note 12 Pro sports a 16 MP (wide) selfie sensor. Its sensor size is 1/3.06-inch and 1.0µm. Video Capacity The video recording quality has improved significantly than Note 11 Pro. Because its ability to stabilize video recordings is improved by the addition of OIS. But additionally, by taking into consideration other smartphones with EIS, Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro’s recording is not superior. Read More: Xiaomi 12T Pro Review: Is the hype real? The highest camera shooting parameters on the Note 11 Pro are 4K 30fps for the main camera and 1080P 30fps for the ultra-wide camera, which are the same in the Note 11 Pro. With the front camera, you can shoot 1080p footage at 30 or 60fps. Battery and Charging The Note 12 Pro comes with 67w charging power for a 5000mAh battery. However, it is 20g lighter than Note 11 Pro, and the battery is 160mAh smaller. Since the phone might give you a reduced performance, the battery life should be long-lasting. Therefore, it is a good improvement over 11 Pro+. Read More: Google Pixel 7 Series Review: What’s New Redmi Note 12 Pro’s Price The Redmi Note 12 Pro’s 128GB 6GB RAM version will cost $299 in China, which is equivalent to Tk30,688 ($1= BDT. 102.64). However, the official price of Redmi Note 12 Pro in Bangladesh may vary due to tax and other issues. Final Words While the four models of Xiaomi’s latest Redmi Note 12 series are different, they share some identical features, such as a 6.67-inch flat AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, FHD+ resolution, and 900 nits peak brightness. The display also supports Dolby Vision, HDR 10, 10-bit color, and HDR 10+. All these models are powered by Dimensity 1080 chipset. But there are some significant differences too, but Note 12 Pro seems promising. Note 12 Pro is great for photographers and regular gamers. So, if you want the play regular games rather than 3D games, this phone is for you as you are getting a long-lasting massive battery. Redmi Note 12 should also be great for fashion enthusiasts as the back colors are fascinating.

Xiaomi released its Redmi Note 12 series on October 27 in China. This series has 4 models, including Note 12, pro, Pro+, and Explorer Edition. Note 12 is the basic model in the Redmi Note 12 lineup. Although Note 12 serves as a starting point for the Redmi Note 12 series and provides the greatest bargain for certain customers, it is far from a low-end device. It has a few good features with some drawbacks. Let’s take a look at whether Redmi Note 12 can fulfill the expectations of the Xiaomi fans. Key Features of Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Design The Redmi Note 12 is a masterpiece in this area, as Xiaomi has essentially mastered the art of making its phones seem to be flagships. While choices from manufacturers like Nokia and Motorola make a valiant effort, they tend to have a certain clunky feel that Xiaomi continually avoids with its tiny budget phones. The 6.67-inch screen dominates the front, which has very tiny bezels all the way around. The "chin" has a somewhat larger frame, but even so, it is still just a few centimeters thick. There is very little area utilized for anything other than the screen because of a tiny notch at the very top of the display in the middle. Read More: Apple iPad, iPad Pro 2022 Review: World’s most advanced tablets the dimensions are 165.9 by 76.2 by 8 mm. Weighing 188g Note 12 won’t feel much heavy. It bears dual SIM. IP53 grade splash and dust resistance make the device more user-friendly. The stylishness is seen on both sides. Even though it is slightly prone to smearing, the smooth plastic is pleasant to hold and gradually slopes toward the corners. A sizable rectangle in the upper left corner perfectly encloses the dual-camera array. Display The screen of the Redmi Note 12 is a 6.67-inch OLED device with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 or 409 pixels per inch. It is also capable of 120Hz refresh rates, however, you have to choose this option since 60Hz is the default. Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 And except for one aspect, it's a great screen. With a volume of 95.8%, it shows a complete spectrum of colors in an accurate and brilliant manner and covers 95.4% of the sRGB gamut. Despite using OLED technology, it still has a good 428cd/m2 brightness level, making it legible unless on the brightest of days. Due to OLED technology, contrast is also excellent. All of this results in a screen that is on par with others in this price range (and several above it), but there is one peculiar aspect. The text on the menus sometimes drags and appears in two locations at once for a little period of time, making the text look as if it can't keep up with the pace of screen refresh. Camera Depending on your perspective, the Redmi Note 12's inclusion of no less than 2 cameras on the rear is impressive—or too ambitious. There is just a 2MP (f/2.4) depth sensor in addition to the wide 48MP primary camera. The main sensor features a 0.8 nichrome lens size. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? On paper, everything seems great, but the pudding is the true test, and to stretch the analogy too far, this dessert is noticeably underdone or more accurately, undersaturated. On the front side, the Note 12 sports an 8MP wide selfie camera featuring an aperture of f/2.0, with a 1/4" and 1.12µm lens size. The 8MP front-facing camera exhibits the under-saturation issue while taking selfies. With the main rear camera, you can shoot 1080p footage at 30 or 60fps; while the selfie camera allows you to capture 1080p footage at 30fps. Read More: OPPO F21 Pro 4G Review: Special attraction for Shakib fans Performance and Software Things have been going rather well up until now, but they are about to take a turn for the worst. The scores gave a rather mixed image of the capabilities of the Qualcomm Snapdragon, despite the fact that the Redmi Note 12 feels absolutely quick while surfing the internet and switching between apps. The processor used is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 6nm chipset, and it is accompanied by Adreno 619 GPU. Note 12 has up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space. Its variants are 4/128GB, 6/128GB 6GB, 8/128GB, and 8/256GB. The device features UFS 2.2 data transfer technology. Read More: realme C30 Review: An entry-level phone with smooth performance To evaluate the gaming performance of Redmi Note 12 we have done 3D testing. It has almost half the performance of the similarly priced competitor phones. Battery and Charger A battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh is considered to be rather ample; the only time you'll need to go for a charger throughout the day is if you're engaging in energy-intensive activities such as gaming or GPS navigation. It's remarkable that after an hour of watching a streaming video with the volume turned down and the brightness turned all the way up, the battery only dropped by five percent despite these extreme conditions. Read More: Infinix Zero Ultra Review: Worth the hype? Because of its low price point, the Redmi Note 12 does not support wireless charging, which is to be anticipated in a device of this kind. On the other hand, the wired 33W charging works quite great, and you can get a full charge on this phone in a little over an hour if you start from zero. There is no cause for concern with regard to the charge of the battery or the duration of its use. Price of Redmi Note 12 in Bangladesh The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 is not available in Bangladesh officially, yet. In the China market, it costs 1199 yuan or BDT 16,846. The conversion rate here is 1 Yuan = 14.05 Taka. However, the official price of Redmi Note 12 in Bangladesh may vary due to tax and other issues. Conclusion Though Note 12, like any other cheap phone, is a negotiated settlement, its design, screen, build quality, battery life, and other common features seem standard. However, its camera quality and general performance are where the users will notice the concessions in the price. Read More: Tecno Pova 4 Pro Review: Budget gaming phone with a massive battery On the whole, Xiaomi’s latest Redmi note 12 can be a good choice for the average day-to-day tasks under the budget range.
Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has recently launched the 12th version of its popular Note Series smartphones.

Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 Redmi Note 12 Pro+ vs Redmi Note 12 Pro Design Both the Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 Pro+ models have 6.67-inch FHD+ OLED panels with 120Hz refresh rates, making their specifications almost equal. Both phones have the Dimensity 1080 chipset, up to 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of fixed storage that cannot be expanded. Camera In terms of cameras, the Pro+ has an advantage because it is the first Redmi phone to feature a 200MP camera that uses a Samsung ISOCELL HPX sensor. This 1/1.4-inch sensor features QPD autofocus and 16-to-1 pixel binning. In the default mode, you can capture photographs with a resolution of 12.5 MP with a 2.24 m pitch, 50 MP with a 1.12 m pitch, and even 200 MP with a 0.56 m pitch.

Sadly, only 4K video recording is possible with the Dimensity 1080 chipset. The 50MP main camera of the Redmi Note 12 Pro features a Sony IMX766 sensor and OIS. Both phones have an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP depth assist sensor. Front-facing selfie cameras have a 16MP resolution.

Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi focuses on value additional devices since its inception. While the Mi lineup focuses on the higher mid-range to flagship devices, the Redmi line takes a budget to mid-range approach. Redmi’s latest 11 series brought a range of devices ranging from entry-level to mid-range segments. Xiaomi's Redmi 11 Prime was launched in India on 6th September 2022. This budget phone aims to bring incredible value for money to users. Let's take a detailed look at the key specs, pros, and cons of Redmi 11 Prime. Xiaomi Redmi 11 Prime Key Specifications Design and Build Quality The design of the Redmi 11 Prime isn’t really reminiscent of the previous iterations. Redmi has always experimented with the design elements and users got a new design tone almost every year. This year, the 11 Prime is no different with its rectangular camera housing and diamond textured back. The body of the 11 Prime is completely made out of plastic. This was no surprise given the budget and previous material choices from Redmi. But what came as a surprise is the Gorilla Glass 3 on the front. This is definitely something that will give an edge to 11 Prime against its competitors. Read Xiaomi Mi Smart Projector 2 Review: Watch FIFA World Cup on 120 inch Screen The usual ports and buttons are all here. Unsurprisingly the power buttons act as the fingerprint sensor and the 3.5 mm headphone jack also retains its place on the device. There’s no stereo speaker on the device but the bottom-firing speaker is quite loud and crisp. The starting variant of the device comes with just a 64 GB ROM option. But thankfully, there’s an additional microSDXC slot to compensate for the onboard storage. Redmi 11 Prime is available in three colors – playful green, flashy black, and peppy purple. The colors are as vibrant as their names. Overall, the Redmi 11 Prime doesn’t really reinvent anything. Instead, it makes the existing props better to put forth a value-for-money device, both design, and build-wise. Read Price Drop: Is it the right time to buy an iPhone 13? Display The 6.58-inch display on the Redmi 11 Prime is an IPS LCD one with a 90 Hz refresh rate. The 90 Hz refresh rate isn’t actually controllable as Redmi optimizes this feature according to level-of-uasage. It's more like a dynamic refresh rate which will change depending on how the user interacts with the device. The panel also boasts 400 nits brightness. While this isn’t technically very bright, outdoor legibility is still okay to some extent. But the 240Hz display looks much better indoors compared to outdoors. Speaking of the quality itself, it’s a decent 1080P panel with a good pixel density. The colors look sharp and warm in a typical Redmi fashion. Viewing angles are also great. For a 1080P LCD panel, Xiaomi has really nailed it here. Read Xiaomi POCO M5 Review: Budget gaming phone with elegant design The market for ultra-budget devices is already saturated. But it's no surprise that Redmi 11 Prime probably pulled off one of the best panels from the lot. Camera We have 3 sensors in the camera department. The main sensor is a 50 MP one with two additional 2 MP depth and macro sensors. In a typical budget marketing style, the two additional sensors are mostly for show and the “triple camera” tag. It's clear that almost all the tasks will fall on the main 50 MP sensor.
Xiaomi has been a global leader in affordable smartphone experience. One of the subsidiaries of the brand, Redmi started its journey in 2013. The company is now synonymous with the “Affordable flagship experience” tag. The company’s latest offering, the Note 12 series is expected to hit the market in late October in line with last year’s release of the Note 11 series. Here is everything known so far about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Series lineup. Leaked Features of Redmi Note 12 Series Design and Build Quality The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 series launched with a plethora of options, each catering to a specific customer base. Last year we got the Note 11, Note 11 Pro, and the highest-endNote 11 Pro+. In line with this release, Redmi launched the T variant on May 24th this year. This leads to the speculation that the Note 12 series will be launched in October. Notable leaker Digital Chat Station has confirmed that there won’t be a significant design overhaul with the Redmi Note 12 series. In fact, it will mostly be the same design and material with some aesthetic changes here and there. Read Xiaomi Redmi K50 Gaming Edition Review: Key features, advantages, disadvantages Even with that, users will be getting a glass front and back device with an aluminum frame all around. The build quality of the Note 11 series was exceptional for its price and the same is expected to continue with the Note 12 series as well. Last year, the headphone jack was present in all three models. This year, the headphone jack might be omitted for the Pro+ model. This is not a confirmed leak so take it with a grain of salt. The other physical features like the speaker, sim tray, and the buttons will all reprise in their previous positions. Overall, the design isn’t really something to get excited about. It's the same tried and tested formula from Redmi and that isn’t a bad thing. The Note 12 series can be considered as an incremental update on the 11 series at least on the design front. Read Google Pixel 6a Review: What’s special about it? The Display Last year, the Redmi series featured a 6.43-inch and a 6.67-inch display for the regular and the pro model. The 120 Hz Super AMOLED panel came with FHD+ resolution. Just like last year, Xiaomi will be using a flat display with a punch hole for the front camera. The display tech won’t be noticeably different from the 11 series. Last year, Note 11 led the charge in the display department for all the smartphone releases. The same is expected to continue this time around as well. We might see some minor improvements here and there in terms of color calibration, viewing angles, and peak brightness. However, none of these features has been confirmed yet. The size of the display is also expected to stay the same as the Note 12 is essentially a repacked version of the Note 11 series. Read Nothing Phone 1 Review: Beyond the Hype and the Glyph The Camera Digital Chat Station also learned that this year, the triple sensor module on the back will feature a 50 MP main camera. Though the choice seems a bit odd considering the 11 series featured a 108 MP main sensor. Though the choice would be understandable given the obvious cost-cutting needs. The 108 MP on the Note 11 series performed similarly to the standard mid-range 50 MP sensors because of the pixel binding tech. So the camera experience probably wouldn’t be much different than the Note 11. The front will feature a standard 16 MP shooter. The other two sensors are expected to be an 8 MP wide angle and a 2 MP macro shooter. If last year is any indicator for the performance, users will be getting capable camera hardware that is definitely going to be a bang for the buck. Read Samsung Galaxy A73 5G Review: Mid-range performance under premium price The videography on Note 12 is expected to be 4K at 30 fps at max just like the Note 11 series. Processor and Performance Xiaomi has always stuck with MediaTek for its mid-range and budget options over the years. Snapdragon seems to be always reserved for the higher-end flagships. The same is expected to continue for the Note 12 series. However, a disputed claim also suggests that the recently released Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 might make a show on the 12 series. If that isn’t the case, then users will be getting a refreshed version of MediaTek Dimensity 920. The chipset is built on 6 Nm architecture, making it one of the more power-efficient and balanced processors. Read OnePlus Nord 2T Review: Know Pros, Cons On the storage and RAM options, users will be getting a lot of choices like the Note 11 series. The 6 and 8 GB RAM options are expected to be coupled with 128 and 256 GB ROM options. And if rumors are to be believed, we might see a high-end 12 GB RAM capacity variant as well. MIUI 14 is also expected to debut with Android 13 on board. This has not been confirmed yet and users may or may not get the Android 13 out of the box. Battery and Charge Time Last year, the standard Note 11 came with a 5000 mAh battery and the Pro variant came with a 5160 mAh battery. They also had 33W and 67 W fast charging respectively. This year Xiaomi might bump up the charging speed up to 80 W and that’s about all the change users will be getting in the battery department. Read Vivo Y01 Review: Is it a worthy entry level budget phone? Price of Redmi Note 12 Series Last year, Note 11 debuted at 1244 CNY and the 11 Pro came at 1599 CNY. The Note 12 series is also expected to debut at the same price point. According to that, the price in Bangladesh should be around 17,371 BDT and 22,328 BDT for the base variants (1 CNY = 13.96 BDT). All of these are speculative prices. The price leak is expected to happen as the release date approaches. Final Words The ancestor Redmi Note series devices have been a fan favorite, especially in the Bangladesh mid-range market. The price-performance proposition of the series meant that these are the best-selling Xiaomi devices in Bangladesh. The upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Series is expected to continue this legacy.

When it comes to proper mid-range devices with an affordable price tag, the Redmi series from Xiaomi has always been delivered. The series has become known for its value-for-money proposition along with its reliable performance. Early this year, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 11 series globally. Recently, the company announced a customized variant of Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 specifically for the Bangladesh market. The device comes at a time when smartphone prices are volatile in the international market. Here’s a detailed take on the device to see what’s different and how it benefits Bangladeshi users. Features of Redmi Note 11 (Customized Variant for Bangladesh) Design and Build Quality From the outside, the customized variant is the exact same as that of the Redmi Note 11. The Redmi Note 11 came in three distinct color options. However, the customized variant got rid of the pearl white and star blue options and stuck with the graphite gray only. Other than that, users won’t see any difference. The phone itself comes in a complete plastic build. The back of the device has a matte frosted finish which gives the device a rather premium look. At 179 gm, the device is comparatively lightweight. It provides a good hand feel thanks to the balanced weight distribution. So users will be able to use the device for long hours without any complications. Read Vivo Y01 Review: Is it a worthy entry level budget phone? On the ports and buttons end, the device has everything standard and some more. The power button on the right of the device doubles as the fingerprint scanner. The two included secondary noise cancellation mics drastically increase the call quality. The standard 3.5 mm jack is also present here along with a dedicated microSD slot and Type-C charger. There isn’t any dual stereo speaker, however. Users will have to settle with the single bottom-firing speaker. Overall, the device is consistent in its design, keeping much of the elements from the previous models while making minor adjustments here and there. Read Samsung Galaxy F13 Review: Is it a good budget phone? Display The display is easily one of the key highlights of the device. Xiaomi used a 6.43-inch 90 Hz AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution in Note 11. One thing to mention here is that the customized variant only has bumped-up memory options. Other than that, everything else is the same as Note 11 and so is the display. As a 90 Hz AMOLED panel, the device offers a smooth touch response. Using the device feels much faster than it actually is thanks to the high refresh rate. Another useful feature of the display is the 1000 nits brightness. It makes the device clearly legible even in direct sunlight. While the panel doesn’t have HDR 10 support, it still churns out crisp contents thanks to the vibrant color contrast of MIUI. Camera The Redmi Note 11 features four cameras on the back. While on paper the device boasts four sensors, in reality only two are useful while the other two are quite gimmicky. The main sensor is a 50 MP f/1.8 shooter complemented by an 8 MP f/2.2 ultrawide sensor. The remaining two sensors are a 2 MP macro shooter and a 2 MP depth sensor. Read Tecno Camon 19 Neo Review: Know its advantages, disadvantages The main camera produces great images in daylight and outdoors. The images look sharp and crisp with a great deal of dynamic range. Xiaomi has also perfected its portrait mode as the images now show better edge detection. The quality slightly drops as users shift to the ultrawide lens. The 118° field of view brings in a lot of subjects to the camera but the fish eye effect is ever so present in every shot. There’s also a 13 MP front-facing camera on Note 11. The lens can take decent shots with impressive color reproduction. The videography of Note 11 is limited to 1080P at 30 fps. While the main lens can churn out more resolution, it is ultimately held back by the limited computational power of the processor. Read Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Is it a value for money flagship? To sum things up, the camera experience on the Note 11 won’t be anything drastically better. But it does bring some impressive performance and improved quality to outperform most of its peers in this price range. Processor and Performance The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 features Snapdragon 680 4G processor built on the 6 Nm architecture. The chip design uses 4 2.4 GHz Kryo 265 Gold and 4 1.9 GHz Kryo 265 Silver chips. The processor is coupled with Adreno 610 GPU for practical and balanced performance. Note 11 blazes through in day-to-day usage. In fact, the 680 4G is the perfect processor for lightweight usage. While it's true that the device is geared towards lightweight usage, the device doesn’t fall short by much in gaming. The device can smoothly run even graphics-intensive games in medium settings. However, it does tend to heat up the device easily. Read Infinix Note 12 G96 Review: A Budget Phone With Top-Notch Features The performance gets an extra boost on the customized variant. The standard Note 11 came with 6 GB RAM as the maxed-out option. However, the customized variant ups the RAM count to 8 GB. This allows the device to retain more apps in the memory and boosts the overall performance by quite a few margins. On top of that, the customized variant is made in Bangladesh and for Bangladesh only. Meaning only the users here can get their hands on the souped-up version of the device. Battery and Charge Time The Redmi Note 11 features an impressive 5000 mAh battery capacity. The battery combined with a power-efficient processor makes the device last up to 10 hours in continuous usage. There is also a 33W fast charger that charges the device from 0 to 100 in an hour.

The price has been adjusted according to the spec bump and local production in mind. Verdict The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11's customized variant for Bangladesh brings more power to a proper mid-range device. The device launched in early 2022 got a mid-year refresh which is sure to appeal to most people looking for a reliable budget option. The device may slightly fall short in the camera but other than that, there’s hardly anything to complain about at this price point. Especially now that the device has more RAM and better performance in the cards. Read Best Upcoming Phones in July 2022 in Bangladesh
While Xiaomi is best known for its flagship products, the firm has gained traction in a number of areas. Thanks to its inexpensive handsets that provide respectable features for a low price.
