Xiaomi recently launched its latest entry-level phone: the Redmi 12C! Starting a P5,499, this all-around phone comes with a bigger screen and bigger storage!
Standout Features of the Redmi 12C
Powering this entry-level phone is the MediaTek Helio G85 processor. Sure, it might be an old chip but it’s perfectly fine for an all-around basic smartphone. There’s even up to 6GB of RAM + 5GB extended RAM and up to 1TB microSD card support. All of this means that you can rely on it for everyday tasks. (Just note that extended RAM only works when you have enough storage.) No need to worry about running out of juice a lot thanks to its 5000 mAh battery.
The Redmi 12C has a big 6.71-inch HD+ display with a 20.6:9 aspect ratio to give you a better experience when reading articles, watching videos, and gaming. It also has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for enhanced authentication for things like unlocking the phone, opening an app, or doing mobile payments.
You can also capture vivid moments with great detail thanks to the 12C’s 50MP main camera. With support for HDR and Night Mode, you can be more flexible with the shots you take.
