The world’s first smartphone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 has been launched in China not long after the American chipmaker’s latest 5G chipset was announced.

The Redmi Note 12R is now official with the Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 in tow. The SoC is the first in the Snapdragon 4 series to be fabbed on a 4nm process and promises better battery life, camera, and connectivity. It’s meant for phones that cost $200 (around P11,086) or less.

Which is what the Redmi Note 12R is. The entry-level handset’s 4GB/128GB base version is priced at only ¥999 (P7,640 or $138), while the 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB variants retails at just ¥1,099 (P8,401 or $152), ¥1,499 (P11,463 or $207), and ¥1,799 (P13,757 or $248), respectively.

The new member of Xiaomi‘s Redmi Note 12 lineup features a 50-megapixel dual camera on the back, a 5-megapixel selfie sensor housed inside a punch hole at the top center of a 6.79-inch 90Hz screen, a 5,000mAh battery that can be charged up to 18 watts, and Android 13-based MIUI 14.

It remains to be seen whether the Redmi Note 12R will be released in international markets, including the Philippines. But we’ll let you know as soon as we get an update from the brand.
