Flexible OLED Display and Lightweight Body Structure

The four smartphones have a 6.67-inch OLED display size, a 2400x1080 pixels resolution, and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The series, except the basic model, comes with a flexible OLED display with 10-bit colors. The display screens of Redmi predecessors support 8-bit colors, which means 64 million color support. Whereas a flagship Explorer consumer gets 10-bit color and up to 1 billion color support on a 6.67-inch display screen. This flexible OLED technology is more vibrant than traditional OLED and a major productive step in introducing advanced features while mirroring its top leading competitors. We get a refresh rate of 120 Hz with peak brightness equal to 1200 nits for Redmi Note 12 5G and 900 nits for remaining flagship models and a pixel density of 394PPI through a diamond-pixel arrangement. The front side of the smartphones is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass to provide durability to the screen panels. The Redmi Note 12 series is said to be a series of thin and lightweight smartphones but apparently, the explorer edition is slightly on the heavier side due to its improved optical image stabilization (OIS) and other latest features. The thickness of the models is equivalent to 7.89 mm; however, the weight considers being lesser than 190 grams. Xiaomi reduces the bezel size to 2.9mm to create a broader look to utilize the flexible OLED display. There is a small center punch hole, full HDR10, 240Hz touch sampling rate, Dolby Vision, and a brighter display to easily use in sunlight. In keeping with the official perspective, the lightweight Redmi smartphone is a pleasurable experience to hold and, it makes every interaction delightful.
