Xiaomi, the Chinese electronics manufacturer, has launched its Redmi 12C smartphone in Kenya, targeting the budget segment of the market. The device is aimed at customers who want a reliable phone without breaking the bank. The phone comes with a MediaTek Helio G85 processor and a 6.71″ HD+ Display. The Redmi 12C is available in Xiaomi stores, retail partner stores, and Jumia from March 13th, 2023.
One of the key features of the Redmi 12C is its big battery, which has a capacity of 5,000mAh, ensuring that users can go for long periods without worrying about running out of power. The phone also comes with a 10W fast charging capability, which is not the fastest on the market but is still more than adequate for most users. The phone also comes with a 10W in-box charger and a Micro USB port.
The Redmi 12C also features a large 6.71″ HD+ Display, which is perfect for watching videos, browsing the internet, and playing games. The phone comes with a 50MP main camera and a 5MP front camera, which is more than enough for taking high-quality photos and selfies. The megapixel count is an important specification, and while it does not always translate to great images, people tend to trust any optics that are served by high resolution.
In terms of security, the phone comes with a rear fingerprint sensor and AI Face Unlock, which ensures that your phone remains secure and your data remains safe. The Redmi 12C also comes with dual SIM support, allowing users to have two SIM cards in the phone at the same time, and a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage.

The Redmi 12C is not alone in the budget segment of the market, as other brands such as Infinix, TECNO, Nokia, and realme also offer capable devices. However, Xiaomi has managed to pack in impressive features at an affordable price point. The Redmi 12C comes in three variants: 3GB + 32GB at KES 14000, 3GB + 64GB at KES 15000, and 4GB + 128GB at KES 17300. This is an excellent price point for a device with such impressive specifications.
