As before, Xiaomi first released the series in China before expanding to other countries. Debuted on October 27, 2022, in China, the Redmi Note 12 series comprised the Redmi Note 12, Redmi Note 12 Pro, Redmi Note 12 Pro+, and Redmi Note 12 Explorer (aka Discovery), followed by the addition of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition two months later.

Later on January 5, 2023, Xiaomi officially launched the Redmi Note 12 series outside of China by launching it in India. The series included Redmi Note 12, Redmi Note 12 Pro, and Redmi Note 12 Pro+.

Although the Note 12 Pro versions are the same, the Redmi Note 12 model launched in India has a couple of differences compared to the one released in China. The Chinese variant does not support a microSD card, has no ultrawide camera, and has an 8MP front camera.

Strangely, Xiaomi is once again gearing up for a launch event on March 23, 2023, to showcase the already-known Redmi Note 12 series. Unlike the previous events, this launch will be held online and the company has not yet disclosed the country. It appears that the debut in India was not the global launch as initially thought.
