Xiaomi Philippines is launching a budget-friendly smartphone this time around, weeks after announcing its Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro flagships with camera systems co-engineered with Leica.

(Update, March 23: The Redmi 12C is priced starting at P5,499 [$101] in the Philippines!)

Marketed as “an entry-level device that will leave you feeling like a tech guru without breaking the bank,” the Redmi 12C is scheduled to go official locally March 23. And if you want to win one, you might want to join the “Guess the Price” contest Xiaomi is promoting online. In China, the phone sells for as low as ¥699 (roughly P5,554 or $101) and goes as high as ¥899 (P7,143 or $131).

Contest announcement. The Redmi 12C Philippine launch, which will be moderated by social-media personality Sassa Gurl, is scheduled for 2 p.m. on March 23

The Redmi 12C is the successor to the Redmi 10C. Underneath its hood is a 12nm MediaTek Helio G85 chipset paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage — all expandable. It comes with a 50-megapixel dual-rear camera, a battery rated at 5,000mAh and supports 10-watt charging, and a 6.71-inch HD+ screen. The Redmi 12C likewise features an 8-megapixel selfie camera, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, and Android 12 with MIUI 13 on top.
