In another post, Redmi confirmed the global debut of the “King Kong Note 12 Turbo”, which will be powered by the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset. The post adds that the new chipset features the same process architecture as the Snapdragon 8+ series.

Another tweet by reliable tipster Yogesh Brar (@heyitsyogesh) suggests that Qualcomm will also launch another new chipset, namely Snapdragon 685, which will reportedly feature in the Redmi Note 12 4G smartphone.

Xiaomi had previously confirmed the global launch of the Redmi Note 12 series on March 23 at 11 pm (GMT+8) / 8:30 pm IST. Both Redmi Note 12 Turbo and Redmi Note 12 4G could be unveiled at this event.
