The ‘Pro’ variant of the Redmi Note lineup has always been highly anticipated in India every year. That said, the Redmi Note 11 Pro was recently spotted on IMEI database website, which suggests that Xiaomi is preparing its launch for the near future. The specs of this phone are vaguely known as of now because the actual Redmi Note 11 Pro, which was launched in China is said to land in India as the Xiaomi 11i so it’s uncertain until further leaks and rumors what Xiaomi may end up launching in India. Speaking of the Chinese Redmi Note 11 Pro, it features a Mediatek Dimensity 920, 6.67″ FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED panel, 108MP triple lens rear camera setup and an adequate 5000mAh battery with support of 67W fast charging. Nonetheless, with the device making its appearance on the listing, it is safe to say the phone will launch sooner or later.

Xiaomi 12X and Xiaomi 12X Pro
In 2021, Xiaomi introduced Mi 11x and Mi 11x Pro in India which were equipped with top of the line Snapdragon SoCs. The Chinese OEM is said to expand this flagship-centric series with Xiaomi 12X and Xiaomi 12X Pro which would once again cater to the audience looking forward to purchase a high end phone. Leaks suggest that the Redmi K50 series, which is also yet to launch will make its way into India as Xiaomi 12X series. With the information available as of now, the Redmi K50 series aka Xiaomi 12X is said to be powered by the newly revealed Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. As far as the rest of the leaked specs are concerned, the phones will feature an AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor, come with 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB RAM options, and a 64MP OmniVision OV64B main lens, an ultrawide and a macro camera on the rear. Don’t expect the phones to launch anytime soon in India though, at least not until Xiaomi unveils the Mi 12 or Redmi K50 series in its home country.
