Xiaomi has just unveiled the latest addition to its Redmi lineup of phones – the Redmi 12. Redmi is Xiaomi's sub-brand (one of many sub-brands) that recycles previous innovations from Xiaomi's flagship devices into more affordable models.

And affordable is the key word here, with the Redmi 12 costing just $149, which is quite frankly silly when you look at its specs sheet, which while won't blow you away, are impressive for a whole that costs less than twenty percent of an iPhone. There is a lot of competition for the best budget camera phone, and the Redmi 12 is staking its claim.
