A new Redmi phone with model number 2212ARNC4L has been approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The device has also been spotted with the Redmi 12C moniker in the IMEI database (via. Xiaomiui). Hence, it appears that the device will be launched soon in the global market.
Earlier this year, Redmi unveiled the Redmi 10C with the Snapdragon 680 onboard in different markets. Now that the Redmi 12C name has appeared in the IMEI database, it seems that the company may skip the Redmi 11C device.
Unfortunately, there is no information available on the major specifications of the Redmi 12C. However, it does reveal that the device will support dual-band Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. It will be preloaded with the MIUI 13 operating system. It appears that the Redmi 12C will be an entry-level phone like the Redmi 10C and Redmi 9C. The model number of the device does suggest that it will launch in December this year.
Apart from the Redmi 12C, the company is also said to be working on the Redmi 11A. A Redmi phone with the model number 22120RNC86C was spotted at TENAA in November. This device is believed to be the Redmi 11A handset. Its Indian variant has been certified by the BIS authority, whereas its global edition has been in the IMDA database recently.
The alleged Redmi 11A’s TENAA listing revealed that it has a 6.708-inch IPS LCD HD+ display, a 5-megapixel front camera, and a 50-megapixel dual-camera system. It is powered by an unknown octa-core processor that clocks at 2.0GHz. The phone is expected to feature up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of built-in storage. It will pack a 5,000mAh battery and is likely to run on MIUI 13-based Android 12 OS. Some of its other features include LTE connectivity, an IR blaster, and a side-facing fingerprint scanner.
