Xiaomi India has also launched a Redmi 12C for budget-focused customers. The Redmi 12C is a more affordable offering with modest specifications. The Redmi 12C places a lot of emphasis on style, even though it is a low-cost gadget.  The rear panel also has a textured design and a fingerprint sensor for biometric security. 

The location is a little strange considering that the majority of smartphones, including other Redmi Note models from Xiaomi, have either an under-display reader or a side-mounted scanner. Additionally, there is an IP52 classification for defence against droplets of water and dust.
