Redmi Note 11 4G launched in China last month as a cheaper alternative to the vanilla Redmi Note 11 that comes with 5G network connectivity. It is the fourth addition to the Note 11 series, including the Redmi Note 11 5G, Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, and the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G. Now, according to a new report from the Pixel, the Redmi Note 11 4G will soon debut in global markets but with a different chipset compared to the China model that features the MediaTek Helio G88 SoC. The 4G variant is also expected to launch in India as well but it remains to be seen which model would be made available.
Redmi Note 11 4G launching in global markets
According to The Pixel, the Redmi Note 11 4G is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC globally. The global model is expected to have a traditional Redmi design instead of flat edges on the Chinese variant. Except for the chipset, the rest of the specifications are expected to be similar to the Chinese counterpart. This means the phone could sport a 6.5-inch FHD+ LCD panel with a dynamic refresh rate of 90Hz. It has triple cameras on the back, with a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro camera.
The Redmi Note 11 has an 8MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats. Connectivity features include 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, IR blaster, and USB Type-C port. The phone packs a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging and 9W reverse charging support. The company is bundling a 22.5W fast charging support. The phone packs up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage that is further expandable via a microSD card.
It runs on Android 11 based MIUI 12.5 custom skin out of the box. The Redmi Note 11 4G is equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers, 3.5mm audio jack and an IR blaster.
