The series includes a few models, such as the vanilla version, the Pro variant, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+, the so-called Discovery Edition, and the Redmi Note 12 Trend Edition. The latter will go on sale a bit later, on November 11. As you see, this is the first time the Note line includes four devices.
