Attending the “Live Vivid” Redmi Note 12 Series media launch of Xiaomi in Cebu City was such an amazing experience for me!

When I walked into the newly opened Rocks Grill and Tavern, I was immediately struck by the vibrant atmosphere. The bright display of Xiaomi demo units was truly impressive; they stood out beautifully against the black walls of the restaurant. The buzz of excitement and anticipation was palpable as fellow media friends eagerly awaited the unveiling of the new Redmi Note 12 series and this year’s Xiaomi Fan Festival (XFF) roadshows.

When the event began, I was on the edge of my seat as Tomi Adrias, Xiaomi Philippines Head of Marketing, took the stage to introduce the latest Redmi Note 12 series. It was such a thrill to see the new phones up close and personal, and I was blown away by their cutting-edge features. From the impressive camera capabilities to the sleek design and impressive performance, it’s clear that the Redmi Note 12 series is going to be a game-changer in the smartphone market.

After the triumph of its forerunner, the Redmi Note 11, it’s natural that the Redmi Note 12 Series would present noteworthy upgrades to the functionalities that hold the most significance for Xiaomi fans, particularly the younger generation.
