Limited variants like the Redmi Note 12 Explorer Edition and Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition were also added to the lineup. Now, as per a new leak, the Chinese smartphone maker is reportedly gearing up to introduce a new Redmi Note 12 "Turbo" edition. The rumoured smartphone is said to be tagged with the codename "Marble" and feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Further, it could be backed by a 5,500mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging. The Redmi Note 12 Pro and Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition also carry the same battery and charging option.
