Redmi 12 was launched earlier this year in June in select global markets. The phone is set to make its India debut on August 1. It is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio G88 SoC paired with up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB of eMMC 5.1 inbuilt storage. It packs a 5,000mAh battery with 18W wired fast charging support. The Indian variant is expected to come with similar specifications to its global counterpart. Redmi has now teased the colour variants of the upcoming smartphone in India.
Redmi India confirmed the colour options of the Redmi 12 Indian variant ahead of its launch in a series of tweets. The phone will be launched in Jade Black, Moonstone Silver, and Pastel Blue colour options. The silver option gives off a rainbow-like shade when light falls on it. The model is seen with a flat panel, curved edges and a glossy, metallic finish. The rear panel also holds three slightly raised circular cutouts placed in the top left corner to hold the triple rear camera unit.
