Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review, price and specifications

Introduction

Considering that the 4G version of the most affordable Redmi Note 12 hasn’t been released this year, it’s time to know about the 5G changes as well. The point here is that Redmi Note 12 4G and Note 12 5G use different hardware, so the user experience may be slightly different. 

The most obvious difference is in the chipsets. The 4G has a Snapdragon 685 processor, while the 5G option has a 1st generation Snapdragon 4 chip. And contrary to our expectations, the latter looks more powerful in every way as the original Redmi Note 12 with 5G capability costs almost 100 euros more.

 We suggest you continue reading on the following pages to find out how the apparently more efficient Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 chipset fares against the Snapdragon 685 in terms of performance and endurance.

Unboxing Xiaomi Redmi Note 12

The device comes in a standard retail box containing all the usual user manuals, a USB-A to USB-C cable for charging and data transfer, as well as a convenient 33W charger.

There’s also a bonus clear silicone protective case in the box to get you started.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 design review

The design of the Redmi Note 12 is slightly different from the 4G option and is more in line with other members of the Redmi Note 12 family. In fact, it’s almost like the pros – the same curves, looks and camera island. The camera bump doesn’t stick out as much and the individual camera rings stick out just a bit.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review

The back of the phone is covered with matte plastic that looks like glass. We have the matte green, but there’s also matte black and Mystique blue. Fingerprints and smudges can be seen at certain angles, but they are far from prominent. They also clear quickly.

The curves of the sides provide a good and comfortable grip without creating unwanted protrusions with the side frame. However, the Redmi Note 12 is slippery due to its matte finish.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review

The side frame is also made of plastic with a matte finish. On the right side is the volume button along with the power button, which also acts as a fingerprint sensor.

The power button is just within reach of the thumb, but the volume button requires a stretch.  It is difficult to distinguish between these two buttons. They are almost identical to touch and sometimes you can hit by mistake.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review

The left side only houses the SIM/microSD card tray, and at the bottom, we see the USB-C connector and the speaker grill. The 3.5mm audio jack is placed on the top of the frame to accompany the IR blaster.

The front is quite similar to the 4G version, which is not surprising given that the two devices share the same panel. The top and side bezels are relatively thin, but the bottom chin is quite thick. This usually applies to cheap phones. At least the selfie camera notch is very small.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
And even though the front panel is completely flat, the sides aren’t sharp and don’t create an awkward gap or bulge where it meets the side bezel.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
Overall, in terms of design, the Redmi Note 12 is decent. It’s quite lightweight, weighing in at 188 grams, which isn’t too shabby for a 6.67-inch smartphone. Maybe it’s a bit heavier, which gives the impression of a heavier phone. The IP53 certification against dust and splashes is also a nice bonus in the sub-€300 price segment.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 screen review

Both Redmi Note 12 4G and Redmi Note 12 5G have the same display panel – AMOLED, 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution, 6.67 inches diagonal and 120 Hz refresh rate. There’s no HDR video capability, but we didn’t expect that.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review

And since the two phones share the same panel, our test results were identical for all intents and purposes.
In manual mode, we got a maximum brightness of 447 nits, while in auto mode, the panel maxed out at 706 nits. These are close to our 474 and 744 nits respectively on the 4G version. Don’t mind the difference of 30-40 nits. This is a fairly standard deviation in different units and is hardly noticeable.
In short, with the Redmi Note 12, you get a bright enough OLED display that offers excellent readability in sunlight.
Redmi Note 12
When it comes to color reproduction, we got the best results in the so-called standard color mode. The dE2000 we measured against the sRGB color space was 1.4, which is impressive – this is a color-calibrated display if we’ve ever seen one.

HRR control

High refresh rate control is very simple. It is actually very simple. The software doesn’t drop down to 60Hz when the on-screen interface is disabled, and it only does so when you launch a video player like YouTube, Netflix, or the Gallery app. In all other scenarios, you will have a constant 120Hz. This approach increases overall power consumption, but it’s not noticeable – the Galaxy A34 we recently reviewed behaved in much the same way.

 Battery Life

The Redmi Note 12 relies on the same 5,000 mAh battery as its 4G counterpart, but also uses a different chipset that is said to be more efficient. And judging by the on-screen tests, it’s somewhat better in the web browsing scenario, but it didn’t last as long in the video playback test.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
Either way, we’re happy with the screen-on runtime, but the phone gets a 101-hour endurance rating due to its poor standby time. This is a small amount for a cheap smartphone with a large battery.
This seems to be a common issue across the entire Redmi Note 12 lineup. Standby power consumption seems to be higher than normal for all of them.
Redmi Note 12

 Charging speed

Both Redmi Note 12 phones have the same battery and charging standard. We doubt that chipsets make a difference in the equation, and the results bear this out. The 5,000 mAh battery is fully charged in one hour and eight minutes using a 33W charger, while you’ll see 56 percent charge in 30 minutes. The difference between charging times on both devices is very small and can easily be explained by statistical error.

Compared to competing solutions, the Redmi Note 12 performs well. The supported 33W fast charging is very suitable for the price category.

 Speakers

This year, the vanilla Redmi Note has given up the speaker setup and relies only on the bottom speaker. This is a bit disappointing as the Redmi Note 11 offered a stereo setup from last year.

In any case, the loudness is not amazing, but it is “good” enough at -28.1 LUFS. You should not expect much in terms of quality. The bass is dull and the high frequency sounds start ringing at a higher volume.

And while there weren’t many alternatives to the Redmi Note 12 4G with stereo speakers, many of the Redmi Note 12 5G’s competitors have stereo speakers.

 Performance and Software

Surprisingly, the Redmi Note 12 5G will receive an older Android 12 at launch. , remember it. Feature-wise, this shouldn’t be a problem as most MIUI phones share the same feature set, barring hardware limitations. That means both devices get essentially the same software, but the 4G iteration has the latest Android 13 as its base. And we prefer to keep the latest version of Android safe for the future, especially since Android 13 has been around for over half a year.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review

MIUI 14 is apparently built almost from scratch as engineers have reworked the original MIUI ROM architecture at the Android kernel level. This includes new CPU, GPU and memory timings, smaller operating system size and overall reduced memory consumption. As a result, Xiaomi claims a 60% smoother experience and more optimized processes. There is also automatic compression for programs that are not actively used. Unfortunately, however, these are not features we can reliably test and verify.
In terms of features, we found some MIUI 14 features advertised. The new enlarged folders are here, and the Gallery app gets native text recognition in addition to Google Lens integration. New large folders are also available on the main page. However, XXL size folders are nowhere to be found, so you can choose between Regular and Enlarged.
Large folders - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Large folders - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
Other features like smart device switching for easier management of Xiaomi smart devices, new widgets and a switch to turn off persistent notifications are nowhere to be found. We are also still waiting for the notification history option which is an Android built-in feature.
The rest is business as usual, and we’ll try to focus on features that are somewhat unique to MIUI or are somehow standout functions.
The split between Notifications and Control Center is enabled by default, and that’s probably a good thing. We found this to be very convenient and a way to teach users about MIUI’s unique approach to the user interface. And if you’re not a fan, you can always switch back to standard notifications by swiping in a location.
General settings - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review General settings - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review General settings - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
Home screen, recent apps and general settings remain unchanged. The app drawer is also enabled by default, and we like that Xiaomi has placed the search bar at the bottom of the screen for easier access. There are custom and preset app categories for faster navigation.

Unlike the standard apps menu of late, the MIUI menu lists apps vertically (you can switch to the standard horizontal orientation) and offers several useful shortcuts. This is where you can open apps in floating windows. However, you can keep a maximum of one application open at a time. If you want a faster shortcut for apps that support open windows, just enable the sidebar.
Sidebar and Floating windows - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Sidebar and Floating windows - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Sidebar and Floating windows - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Sidebar and Floating windows - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
Themes have always been a big part of MIUI and they are available in MIUI 14 as well. You can download new ones from the theme store, and they can change wallpapers, ringtones, system icons, and even the always-on display style.

Of course, in addition to the preset settings, there is also an always-on display setting. The Notification effect lights up the edges of the screen when new notifications come in, but there’s no customization other than a few different colors and a Starlight option. This effect can work with or without AOD.

Moving towards privacy and security, MIUI comes with a pre-installed system security app. Aside from the extra layer of malware protection it provides, the app keeps many of the app’s settings and privacy features in one place. It can manage your blacklist, manage or limit your data usage, configure battery behavior and free up some RAM. It can also manage the permissions of your installed apps, define the battery behavior of selected apps, and apply restrictions to only certain apps.
Security app - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Security app - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
All in all, MIUI 14 has changed little in terms of overall user experience compared to the 13th iteration, and that’s not a bad thing. Fast and customizable as always.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
Xiaomi has paid special attention to the touch part of this device and we found that its engine is clear, strong, accurate and responsive. It reacts to many actions throughout the system and during navigation. Even if it is not intrusive or strong enough, there is an intensity of tactile feedback.

Benchmark performance

The Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 was released over half a year ago, but this is our first time playing with it. The adoption rate of some recent Qaulcomm chipsets has been relatively slow. In any case, the Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 is supposed to replace the Snapdragon 400 series chips that offer higher performance and performance. The chip is based on TSMC’s 6nm production node and uses an octa-core CPU.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
The CPU itself consists of 2 Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz while the other cores are 6 Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. On the other hand, Adreno 619 handles tasks that require graphics processing. This GPU is specifically used in many of the Snapdragon 600 and 700 series chipsets, so it’s welcome at the lower end of Snapdragon.
The device we are reviewing is the flagship version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Otherwise, this phone will be sold in two models of 4.128 GB and 6.128 GB. Now without further ado, let’s get to the benchmarks.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to run a full set of benchmarks on the Redmi Note 12 5G as some were limited. However, Geekbench and AnTuTu are sufficient to measure the overall performance of the Snapdragon 4 Gen 1. And besides, we have already tested a lot of Adreno 619 GPUs in our database.
The 1st generation Snapdragon 4 performs well against other chipsets in the same price range. It lags behind the competition in single-threaded workloads but keeps pace in multi-core CPU scenarios. In composite tests, the SoC lags behind the rest. It only beat the Snapdragon 685 in the Redmi Note 12 4G and last year’s Redmi Note 11 with the same Snapdragon 680.
Other phones that use the Snapdragon 695 clearly have more power under the hood. Even Samsung’s Exynos 1280 chip performs better in two of these scenarios. It lags behind the SD4 Gen 1 only in the single-core Geekbench test.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 camera review

The camera settings are slightly different from the 4G version of the phone. The primary camera here has been replaced by a 48-megapixel camera paired with an f/1.8 aperture. Apart from the main camera, the rest of the camera hardware is the same in these two phones.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review

We’ve got an 8-megapixel f/2.2, 120-degree, 1/4-inch 1.12μm ultra-wide camera on the back, along with a 2-megapixel f/2.4 macro camera.
For selfies, the Redmi Note 12s uses a 13-megapixel, f/2.5, (wide), 1/3.0-inch screen.

Camera menus

The camera app is a fairly simple implementation, though it has its quirks. First, the main operation works for switching modes using sideswipes, and you can also tap on the modes you see to go directly to them.
Up and down swipes do not work to switch between front and rear cameras. Only the button next to the shutter does this.
You can add, remove, and reset modes in the main rolodex by going to the More tab and clicking the Edit button, and you can also access it from the Settings menu. Unused modes will still be in that More tab, but you’ll be able to switch to a (less visual) pull-out page called up from a line next to the shutter.
Camera modes - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Camera modes - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Camera modes - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Camera modes - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Camera modes - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
The hamburger menu at the bottom is where you’ll find additional options, including macro mode. Next to that hamburger menu, you have a flash mode switch, an HDR switch, an AI key, and a shortcut for Google Lens. We noticed that the HDR switch always turns off after closing the camera app. So be aware of that and always check if the HDR switch is turned on. We recommend keeping it on, even though the software rarely selects HDR mode.
Camera settings - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review Camera settings - Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
As expected, there are additional modes, including Long Exposure with a selection of different presets – Moving Crowd, Neon Trails, Oil Painting, Light Painting, Starry Sky, and Star Trails.
Night mode is only available on the main camera and in 2x zoom mode.

Photos taken during the day

Main camera

  The Redmi Note 12 takes decent photos as long as the lighting conditions are right. However, it is unrealistic to expect great quality from a phone under 300 euros. However, keep in mind that these photos were taken under a heavily overcast sky, so that may cloud your judgment.
Overall, noise is the most important issue here. There’s a lot of graining around, mostly in shadows and homogenous backgrounds. Also, if you take pictures one after another without waiting a few seconds, each picture after the second one becomes very noisy, indicating that the ISP’s performance may be limited.
Otherwise, we find the photos sufficiently detailed, sharp enough, with natural colors and acceptable dynamic range. However, the contrast is slightly higher than the Xiaomi model. This often produces grainy looking photos and sometimes overly dark shadows.

Compared to the Note 12 4G’s cameras, the 5G’s camera is an overall better camera. The 4G version produces noisier and darker photos with sharper contrast. Colors are also nicer in 5G iterations.

Double zoom

This mode has the same features as the standard 1x mode and overall processing, but noise is more obvious, everything is noticeably smoother, and you can see jagged straight lines from a distance. The upgrade to 12MP is pretty obvious.

Ultra wide camera

As is often the case, ultra-wide cameras produce less-than-optimal photos in the low-end and mid-range categories. No matter the lighting conditions, noise abounds, sharpness is lacking, and fine detail is completely lost. Xiaomi has boosted the contrast and colors for a more attractive look and to some effect.

Macro camera

The macro camera uses a small 2MP sensor with fixed focus, so getting decent macro shots is a challenge. Not enough detail, although resolution is good. The lack of contrast and vivid colors makes it really hard for us to recommend using a macro camera.

Photos taken at night

Main camera

As was the case with the 4G version, the main camera of the 5G variant also struggles to deliver good photo quality in low light. Dynamic range isn’t ideal as we can see crushed shadows, there’s noise all around, and photos tend to be soft and lacking in detail. However, we found that the 5G version produced better colors, the contrast was significantly higher and the highlights looked better.

A dedicated night mode is a hit or miss. In an attempt to remove noise, the algorithm smears out what remains of detail in the photo. In fact, in some cases, with night mode on, the night sky looks very grainy. The only benefit of using night mode is that it raises the shadows and introduces more detail there.

When it comes to low-light performance, both devices are quite comparable. The only noticeable difference is in colors and contrast. The same goes for night mode photos.

Not much to say about the 2x zoom examples. This mode is unusable with or without night mode. All the problems we found with the 1x zoom mode are amplified here.

Ultra wide camera

With a weak ultra-wide camera during the day, it’s unrealistic to expect good low-light photography. They are very soft, noisy, with washed out colors and poor dynamic range.

Here’s how the main camera on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 stacks up against the rest of the competition in the controlled environment of our photo comparison tool.

portrait mode

The portraits were very solid. Edge detection makes the bokeh effect quite convincing even with a more complex background or foreground, and as long as there’s plenty of light, you can expect sharp, noise-free images with sharp colors and somewhat natural skin tones. However, the slightest drop in ambient light causes noise and sometimes blurs the photos.

selfie camera

The selfie camera needs a bit more stability. If you can hold your hand steady enough and have good ambient light conditions, you can expect decent photos with good clarity and detail. But more than half of the samples we shot were unacceptably blurry, and the ones shot in average room light are downright soft. The colors are also a little dark.

Filming

 Video recording capabilities are minimal, but good for the price.  Redmi Note 12 5G supports video recording up to 1080p@30fps and EIS is always on, never turn it off.
Recording with the main camera guarantees decent results. The video is a bit soft even for Full HD resolution, but it has decent contrast, nice colors, and even with heavy cloud cover, the software managed to successfully balance shadows and highlights.
Ultrawide’s ability to record video is very limited. It is very foggy and noisy. There are no fine details and the colors are washed out. Hard to recommend even in good light.

Review of the competitors of Xiaomi Redmi Note 12

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 comes with a decent price tag, which is what you’d expect from last year’s Redmi Note 11 series. In fact, this phone can be found in the mid-200-euro range, making it a more desirable option. And what’s not to like? It has a great 6.67-inch 120Hz OLED panel, a new Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 chipset, a large battery with respectable fast charging, and the holy trinity of features – a 3.5mm audio jack, a dedicated microSD card slot, and a radio. It is FM. A very popular set of features in low to mid range smartphones. And although it depends on the market, NFC appears to be present on our international unit, which was not the case with the 4G version.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
When it comes to competition, the Redmi Note 12 has plenty of competition. Most of them are last year’s models, but that shouldn’t be too much of a concern since the 2022-2023 timeframe didn’t see a huge leap in silicon technology or anything hardware-related. So with 2022 mid-range phones dropping in price, they will certainly do the trick.

The Samsung Galaxy A33 with a price of 260 euros is a good example. Its panel may not run at 120Hz, but it’s still very strong in terms of quality and overall brightness. The Exynos 1280 is significantly faster than the low-end Snapdragon 4 Gen 1. It has comparable battery life and a set of stereo speakers. The Samsung competitor is also IP67 certified against water, dust and offers a relatively better all-around camera experience and the ability to record 4K videos.

We also like the fact that the A33 has its own under-display fingerprint sensor, which is more convenient and versatile than a side-mounted device.

Alternatively, you can always opt for the 4G version, which offers almost the same user experience. The chipset may not be as fast as SD4 Gen 1, but it runs on newer Android and offers better battery life.

Summary

Just like its 4G counterpart, the Redmi Note 12 5G is a solid all-rounder with no complaints. The phone has a great OLED panel, decent battery life, although we expected more from it, like competitive fast charging, a reliable main camera, and a dedicated microSD card slot.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 review
However, with a cheaper 4G version with an almost identical user experience on one side and some strong alternatives with the same price tag, the Redmi Note 12 is in a tough spot this year. The omission of the stereo speakers from last year is a mistake, and the battery life is also outstanding. Once the price comes down a bit, the Note 12 might become more compelling. But for now, consider some of the options we mentioned above.

Why should we buy Xiaomi Redmi Note 12?

  • Comfortable design, IP53 rated.
  • Exceptional and bright 120 Hz OLED screen.
  • Suitable charging speed , 3.5 mm jack, FM radio, IR blaster, microSD slot.
  • The main camera performance is decent if not impressive.

Why should we not buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 phone?

  • Disappointing ultra-wide cameras and selfies, no 4K video recording at all.
  • Without stereo speakers, there are phones with better chipsets for the same price.

The best mid-range Xiaomi phone

At the beginning of the article, we have gone to the best mid-range smartphones of Xiaomi, which offer good features and capabilities considering their relatively reasonable price. To buy these devices, you don’t need to spend a lot of money like buying flagships, and their performance is also satisfactory.

Next, we will introduce some top mid-range Xiaomi phones.

Redmi 12

Xiaomi Redmi 12 phone

As the cheapest mid-range Xiaomi phone on our list, the Xiaomi Redmi 12 has decent features that are enough for a wide range of users.

The material used in the body of the phone is all plastic, which may not be pleasant for some users; But considering the price and target users, it is normal. The screen size is 6.79 inches and its panel type is IPS; But since its resolution is FHD and its refresh rate is 90 Hz, the content being played will have good speed and quality.

The main camera is 50 megapixels and the selfie camera is 8 megapixels, which capture high-quality photos in good lighting conditions. The ultra-wide and macro cameras of Xiaomi phones do not perform very well and you cannot count on their photography.

If the other parts of the Xiaomi phone don’t catch your eye, probably the 12nm MediaTek G88 processor and the decent 8GB RAM capacity will. With such hardware, you can easily open various programs and not be afraid of hanging the phone. The phone’s processor is not suitable for heavy games; But in daily use, there is no shortage. Redmi 12 uses a 5,000 mAh battery that is fully charged in about 1 hour and 20 minutes with the 18-watt charger inside the box.

Poco M6 Pro

Poco M6 Pro is one of Xiaomi’s new midranges that uses the new design language of this company’s products and is considered an attractive option.

The 6.67-inch screen of the Xiaomi phone uses FHD resolution and an OLED panel, which has good impact resistance with Gorilla Glass 5 coating; But the frame and body of the phone are made of plastic, which is not far from the mind considering its price range. Also, its 120 Hz refresh rate makes gaming and web browsing very smooth and smooth. This feature is less common in mid-range Samsung phones in this price range.

The Mediatek Helio G99 Ultra processor has a good speed in executing popular commands and games. The version we listed comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, which sounds great for a mid-range phone.

The set of Xiaomi phone cameras may not perform as well as it seems from their megapixels. Xiaomi has used a 64-megapixel sensor for the main camera, which is also accompanied by ultra-wide and macro cameras. Camera performance is satisfactory only in good lighting conditions, and for low-light environments, you should limit your expectations.

Other features of the Poco M6 Pro include a 67-watt high-speed charger inside the box and a fingerprint sensor under the display, both of which can increase the value of purchasing the phone for many users.

Poco X6

Xiaomi Poco X6, as a serious competitor of Galaxy A54 and of course Galaxy A35 in the market, has attracted a lot of attention. Xiaomi’s mid-range uses a relatively new Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 processor, which shows good stability and performance in heavy programs and games, and has no problem running light games with the best graphics. Unfortunately, the Poco X6 comes with the MIUI user interface and does not use HyperOS like the Pro version. Such a choice will definitely have an impact on receiving phone updates in the future.

Xiaomi’s attractive mid-range OLED display panel has a resolution of 1220 x 2712 pixels, which is slightly better than FHD resolution. Such specifications will bring smooth scrolling and performance along with a 120Hz refresh rate. Also, the display supports the Dolby Vision standard and thanks to the 12-bit panel, it can display 68 billion colors.

The main camera of the Xiaomi phone is 64 megapixels, which records high-quality photos in different light conditions; But since Poco series phones focus more on processing functions, its camera may not reach the Galaxy A54.

The body of the Xiaomi phone is entirely plastic; But the Victos Gorilla Glass cover is used to protect the screen, which is mostly reserved for premium and flagship phones. Poco X6’s battery capacity is 5100 mAh, which takes about 40 minutes to fully charge with the 67-watt charger inside the box.

The best mid-range Xiaomi phone for gaming

Our expectation from the best Xiaomi gaming phones is that they can provide acceptable hardware and visual performance, and this is related to several factors, including the refresh rate of the display and the power of the processor.

Among Xiaomi’s mid-range devices, there are options that, in addition to a relatively reasonable price, also offer satisfactory performance when playing games. We will introduce them next.

Poco F4

Poco F4

Currently, one of the best affordable phones in the field of gaming is the Xiaomi Poco F4 phone, which is equipped with Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 870 processor.

Poco F4 is equipped with an OLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, which also supports HDR10 Plus and Dolby Vision technology. Xiaomi has considered a 64-megapixel sensor for the main camera, which is accompanied by 8 and 2-megapixel sensors for the ultrawide and macro cameras. The selfie camera is also 20 megapixels, which is considered a suitable option for video conversations with a suitable resolution.

A relatively large 4500 mAh battery with a 67W fast charger in the box, dual stereo speakers, and Gorilla Glass 5 protective cover are other features that improve the value of buying this gaming phone.

Poco X6 Pro

The basic version of Poco X6 Pro, which we introduced earlier, is considered one of the best mid-range Xiaomi gaming phones and has exceptional processing performance in various games.

Poco X6 Pro uses the MediaTek Dimensity 8300 Ultra processor along with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of UFS 4.0 storage space. The use of such powerful hardware in the mid-range of Xiaomi allows the Poco X6 Pro to run most games on the best graphics.

Poco X6 Pro’s 6.67-inch OLED screen has a 1.5K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate and is capable of displaying 68 billion colors. Of course, like other Poco models, this phone does not have much definition in the camera department and uses a 64-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization for its wide camera.

Fortunately, the Poco phone is equipped with HyperOS from the beginning and will receive operating system updates for up to three years. We recommend that you don’t miss the Poco X6 Pro review on Zoomit for a more detailed review and to see various tests.

The best mid-range Xiaomi phone in terms of camera

In the guide to buy the best Xiaomi phone, complete explanations are given about all Xiaomi devices that are worth buying; But if only the phone’s camera is the main criterion for your purchase, you should consider other Xiaomi phones.

Next, we will introduce the best mid-range Xiaomi phone that, considering its price, captures high-quality images and can be trusted for filming.

Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G

Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G

While the cameras of the 4G and 5G models of Redmi Note 13 Pro use the same technical specifications, due to the use of a different processor in the 5G version, the photos recorded in this model are of better quality.

Just like the Poco X6 that we introduced earlier, the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G also uses the second-generation Snapdragon 7s processor, which, combined with the 200-megapixel Xiaomi camera, leads to very good results in various photography scenarios. For users who prioritize cameras in mid-range phones, Redmi Note 13 Pro takes clear photos in poor lighting conditions.

In the video recording department, Redmi Note 13 Pro can record 4K videos at 30 frames per second and 1080p videos at 120 frames per second, which seem to be excellent specifications for a mid-range phone.

Other specifications of the Xiaomi phone include an OLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a 5100 mAh battery with a 67-watt high-speed charger, and a fingerprint sensor under the screen. For more tests and reviews, don’t miss the Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G and 4G review.

Unveiling of OpenAI new artificial intelligence capabilities

Published

By

OpenAI

OpenAI claims that its free GPT-4o model can talk, laugh, sing, and see like a human. The company is also releasing a desktop version of ChatGPT’s large language model.

 Unveiling of OpenAI new artificial intelligence capabilities

Yesterday, OpenAI introduced the GPT-4o artificial intelligence model, which is a completely new model of the company’s artificial intelligence, which according to OpenAI is a step closer to a much more natural human-computer interaction.
This new model accepts any combination of text, audio, and image as input and can produce output in all three formats. It can also detect emotions, allow the user to interrupt it mid-speech, and respond almost as quickly as a human during a conversation.
In the live broadcast of the introduction of this new model, Meera Moratti, Chief Technology Officer of OpenAI, said: “The special thing about GPT-4o is that GPT-4 level intelligence has been made available to everyone, including our free users. This is the first time we’ve taken a big step forward in ease of use.
During the unveiling of the model, OpenAI demonstrated the GPT-4o, which translates live between English and Italian, with its intuitive ability to help a researcher solve a linear equation on paper in an instant, just by listening to The breaths of an OpenAI executive give him advice on deep breathing.
The letter “o” in the name of the GPT-4o model stands for the word “Omni”, which is a reference to the multifaceted capabilities of this model.
OpenAI said that GPT-4o is trained with text, images, and audio, meaning all input and output is processed by a neural network. This differs from the company’s previous models, including the GPT-3.5 and GPT-4, which allowed users to ask questions just by speaking, but then converted the speech to text. This would cause tone and emotion to be lost and interactions to slow down.
OpenAI will make this new model available for free to everyone, including ChatGPT users, over the next few weeks, and will also initially release a desktop version of ChatGPT for Apple computers (Mac) for users who have purchased a subscription, starting today. They will have access to it. The introduction of the new OpenAI model took place one day before the Google I/O event, which is the company’s annual developer conference.
OpenAI
It should be noted that shortly after OpenAI introduced GPT-4o, Google also presented a version of its artificial intelligence known as Gemini with similar capabilities.
While the GPT-4 model excelled at tasks related to image and text analysis, the GPT-4o model integrates speech processing and expands its range of capabilities.

Natural human-computer interaction

According to OpenAI, the GPT-4o model is a step towards a much more natural human-computer interaction that accepts any combination of text, audio, and image as input and produces any combination of text, audio and image.
This model can respond to voice inputs in less than 232 milliseconds, with an average speed of 320 milliseconds, which is similar to the response time of humans in a conversation.
This model matches the performance of the GPT-4 Turbo model on English text and code with a significant improvement in converting text to non-English languages while being much faster and 50% cheaper via application programming interface (API). The GPT-4o model is especially better in visual and audio understanding compared to existing models.

What exactly does the introduction of this model mean for users?

The GPT-4o model significantly enhances the experience of ChatGPT, OpenAI’s wildly popular AI chatbot. Users can now interact with ChatGPT like a personal assistant, ask it questions and even hang it up wherever they want.
Additionally, as mentioned, OpenAI is introducing a desktop version of ChatGPT along with a revamped user interface.
“We recognize the increasing complexity of these models, but our goal is to make the interaction experience more intuitive and seamless,” Moratti emphasized. We want users to focus on working with GPT instead of being distracted by the UI. Our new model can reason text, audio, and video in real-time. This model is versatile, fun to work with, and a step toward a much more natural form of human-computer interaction, and even human-computer-computer interaction.
The GPT-4o model has also been extensively reviewed by more than 70 experts in areas such as social psychology, bias and fairness, and misinformation to identify risks introduced or enhanced by the newly added methods. OpenAI has used these learnings to develop safety interventions to improve the safety of interacting with GPT-4o. The members of the OpenAI team demonstrated their audio skills during the public presentation of this new model. A researcher named Mark Chen emphasized its ability to gauge emotions and noted its adaptability to user interruptions.
Chen demonstrated the model’s versatility by requesting a bedtime story in a variety of tones, from dramatic to robotic, and even had it read to him. As mentioned, this new model is available for free to all ChatGPT users. Until now, GPT-4 class models were only available to people who paid a monthly subscription.
“This is important to us because we want to make great AI tools available to everyone,” said OpenAI CEO Sam Altman.

Strong market for generative artificial intelligence

OpenAI is leading the way in productive AI alongside Microsoft and Google, as companies across sectors rush to integrate AI-powered chatbots into their services to stay competitive.
For example, Anthropic, a competitor of OpenAI, recently unveiled its first corporate proposal to Apple to provide a free program for iPhones.
“We recognize that GPT-4o audio presentations present new risks,” OpenAI said in a statement. Today we’re publicly releasing text and image inputs and text outputs, and in the coming weeks and months, we’ll be working on the technical infrastructure, post-training usability, and security necessary to release other methods. For example, at startup, audio outputs are limited to a set of predefined sounds and adhere to our existing security policies. We will share more details about the full range of GPT-4o methods in a future system.
OpenAI
According to the report, the generative AI market saw a staggering $29.1 billion in investment across nearly 700 deals in 2023, up more than 260 percent from the previous year. Predictions indicate that the yield of this market will exceed one trillion dollars in the next decade. However, there are concerns about the rapid deployment of untested services by academics and ethicists who are troubled by the technology’s potential to perpetuate prejudice.
Since launching in November 2022, ChatGPT’s chatbot has broken records as the fastest-growing user base in history, with nearly 100 million weekly active users. OpenAI reports that more than 92% of the world’s top 500 companies use it.
At the presentation event last night, Moratti answered some questions from the audience and when he spoke in fluent Italian and the artificial intelligence translated his words into English, the hall was filled with excitement.
There is more. This means the next time you take a selfie, OpenAI’s artificial intelligence can assess your exact emotions. All you have to do is select a selfie and ask ChatGPT to tell you how you feel.
It should be said that OpenAI employees were so happy that ChatGPT asked them why they were so happy!
