Flipkart has revealed some deals that will be offered on a few Redmi handsets during the sale. Most of these deals listed are inclusive of bank offers other than the specified sale discount. In this article, we list all the deals confirmed by Flipkart till now, starting from budget phones to flagship models.

Redmi Note 12 series, including the base Redmi Note 12 5G, Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G and the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G, was introduced earlier this year in January. At launch, the price of the models started from Rs. 17,999, Rs. 24,999 and Rs. 29,999, respectively. A Redmi Note 12 4G model, unveiled later in March, was marked at Rs. 14,999.
According to teasers shared by Flipkart, the 4G model of the Redmi Note 12 will be available for a price as low as Rs. 10,999 with an additional exchange offer of up to Rs. 1,000. It claims to offer the “most affordable” 120Hz AMOLED display. The phone has a 6.67-inch full-HD+ (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) Super AMOLED panel and a 50-megapixel triple rear camera unit. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 685 SoC powers it and packs a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging support. The phone is offered in Lunar Black, Frosted Ice Blue, and Sunrise Gold colour options.
The 5G base model of the Redmi Note 12 will be available for purchase at Rs. 13,999 during the upcoming Flipkart sale. Apart from the sale discount, this price includes all other bank offers. Customers can also opt for an EMI option and buy the phone starting in monthly instalments of Rs. 2,334. Redmi Note 12 5G comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 SoC and shares battery details with its 4G counterpart.
The Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G will also be offered at a discounted price at the 2023 Big Billions Day Sale. The lowered price is yet to be confirmed. But Flipkart claims that with the offer price, it will be the only handset under Rs. 20,000 with a Sony IMX766 sensor. This model, offered in Frosted Blue, Stardust Purple, and Onyx Black colourways, features a 50-megapixel primary rear sensor with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC. The pro version supports 67W fast charging with a battery similar to the base model.
The discounted price of the top-of-the-line Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G has also not yet been confirmed, but it is expected to be available at a considerably lower price than its usual market price. The Pro+ model, with a 6.67-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,400 pixels) AMOLED display, is powered by a 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC paired with a Mali-G68 MC4 GPU. The phone comes with a 200-megapixel Samsung HPX primary rear sensor. It packs a relatively smaller 4,980mAh battery but supports 120W wired fast charging.
Moving on to more budget options, the 4GB + 128GB variant of the Redmi 12 4G model, which claims to be the “fastest selling” Redmi phone, is also teased to be available at a lowered price during the upcoming Flipkart sale.
