In China, the Redmi Note 11 has already been launched. But as usual, the brand plans to distribute its new smartphones internationally under other names and with some differences on the menu.
The Redmi Note 11, should keep its name when it launches in other countries. On the other hand, part of its technical sheet could evolve – at least with regard to its 4G variant.
A Qualcomm SoC rather than MediaTek
According to the site ThePixel.vn, Quoted by Pricebaba, the Redmi Note 11 4G “Global” (understand: the international version) will be available in three distinct models.
What should be remembered for the moment is that this version would abandon the SoC Helio G88 from MediaTek in favor of a Snapdragon 680 from Qualcomm. A 4G model was announced last month, which should offer very decent performance for the price Redmi will charge (more on this later).
This smartphone will be configured in versions with 4, 6, or 8 GB of RAM for 128 GB of storage. According to the sources of The Pixel, the entry ticket would be set at $ 199 – which generally translates into a price that is fairly close in France, around € 200.
5G models expected at the start of the year
The Pixel Also says it has some crisp info on the 5G lineup of the Redmi Note 11 series. According to the site, Xiaomi would announce a new batch of devices in the first quarter of 2022.
Once again, these smartphones should carry a MediaTek SoC in their country of origin (the Dimensity 920, the Vietnamese site tells us), but would opt for a Qualcomm equivalent when it comes out in our regions.
Still, we can’t wait to find out what wood this new range will be made of – the previous one still being one of our favorite smartphones of the year. The Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro remain safe values.
