Redmi 12 is expected to launch soon as the successor to the Redmi 10 model that was released last year. A tipster shared that the phone was spotted on the Redmi's official Portugal website. The screengrab shared by the tipster suggests the design and the price of the upcoming handset. The leak suggests that the smartphone will likely be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio G88 SoC. The outgoing Redmi 10 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC and is backed by a large 6,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.

Tipster Kacper Skrzypek (@kacskrz) shared in a tweet a screengrab that showed the Redmi 12 listed on the official Portugal website. The phone is expected to be released in variations of 4GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of inbuilt storage options. According to the leaked screenshot, the smartphone will start at EUR 209.99 (roughly Rs. 18,600). We at Gadgets360 weren't able to verify the listing, so it's best if this is taken with a pinch of salt.
