The next Xiaomi phone likely to be launched in India could be the Redmi Note 12 Pro+. The smartphone however is touted to go on sale in the country sporting a different brand name – the Xiaomi 12i HyperCharge. That is hardly surprising considering that the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge currently sold in the country also happens to be the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G rebranded as such. The phone has been launched in China just last week and was accompanied by a few other models in the Note 12 series.
Now, there already are reports of the phone making it to the FCC, something that hints at a launch of the phone sometime soon. What has come to the fore is that it is the global version of the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G smartphone that has been spotted on the FCC website. The site identifies the phone by the model number 22101316UG. The site also claims the phone will likely run the MIUI 14 OS based on Android 13 right out of the gates.
