Xiaomi made the global announcement of the Redmi Note 12 series on March 23. The Note 12 Pro Plus is the most premium offering of the bunch bringing in features like a 200MP camera, 120W charging, and more. The smartphone is launching soon in Nepal as well. So let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus in Nepal.
Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus Overview:
Design and Display
As for the design, the Note 12 Pro Plus brings a glass-sandwich build with curved edges measuring in at 8.9mm. It weighs around 210 grams and comes in three color options—Polar White, Midnight Black, and Sky Blue.
On the front, there is a 6.67-inch OLED panel with a FullHD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) resolution. The phone can switch between four levels of refresh rate, with the highest being 120Hz. The touch sampling rate caps out at 240Hz.
Moreover, the screen has a 10-bit color depth and supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision for an immersive viewing experience. Additionally, it has a maximum brightness of 900 nits and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. However, Redmi has not offered any protection on the back glass.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 1080 chip. It is among the first phone to have this chip on board. Built on TSMC’s 6nm process, the mobile silicon features two Cortex-A78 cores (@2.6GHz) and six Cortex-A55 cores (@2GHz).
Redmi has paired the SoC with 8GB or 12GB of RAM, while the storage option is limited to 256 GB. Regardless, Xiaomi has used LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.2 storage on the phone. And despite being a 2023 mid-range phone, the phone still boots on MIUI 14 based on Android 12.

One of the key highlights of the Dimensity 1080 is its Image Signal Processor (ISP), which supports 200MP cameras. And the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ makes full use of this processor. It has a 200MP Samsung HPX sensor with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) as its primary camera. Accompanying this are an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP depth sensor. Over on the front, there is a 16MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.
Rest of the specs
Fueling the smartphone is a 5000mAh battery that is said to offer 19 hours of video playback. Redmi has also used a Surge P1 chip underneath, allowing it to charge up to 120W.
Exclusive to China
There is even a new Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition, which has the same specs as the Redmi Note 12 Pro+, but with an even faster 210W charging. On the downside, it has a smaller 4300mAh battery. However, this model is currently exclusive to the Chinese market.
Likewise, the smartphone has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometrics. And handling the audio side of things is the dual stereo speaker setup backed by Dolby Atmos. There’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack, by the way. You also get dual SIM 5G, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, and Bluetooth as wireless connectivity options.
