Why you should buy Redmi 12C

Why you should buy Redmi 12C? One word: the processor. To explain it further, the Helio G85 processor is a steal for these prices. You have to spend more to get any other phone that uses this processor. Other Helio G85 smartphones at this time cost in the region of ₦100,000 and are missing some features.

Its competitors include Samsung Galaxy A04 and A04e; they both feature a less powerful processor and lack a fingerprint sensor. TECNO Spark 9 and Spark 9T cost more and have a less capable processor. Do you get the picture now? The Redmi 12C is hard, not impossible, to beat in its class.

In November 2023, Redmi 13C was announced as its successor.
