The Redmi 12 5G made its debut in India on August 1, 2023. Three days after the launch, the smartphone came on sale on August 4. However, it got out of stock very quickly. After that, it came back in stock on August 8. And guess what? It got out of stock again, within a 30-minute window. If you missed this smartphone in today’s sale, then you need to wait at least three more days (guessing from the waiting period between the last two sales) until the company brings it back in stock. But why are people getting so eager about this smartphone? Let’s find out.
