- Redmi Note 11 series has been officially teased by the company.
- The series debuted globally and comprises Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11S, and Redmi Note 11 Pro (4G/5G).
- Redmi Note 11S and Redmi Smart Band Pro are scheduled to launch in India on February 9th.
Redmi Note 11S is scheduled to launch in India on February 9th. It is likely the same phone that debuted globally on Wednesday. The phone is expected to come with quad-cameras, led by a 108MP primary sensor, and the MediaTek Helio G96 SoC. Now, Redmi India has officially teased that the brand is bringing more phones under the Redmi Note 11 series, but it isn’t clear whether they will launch alongside the Note 11S on February 9th. The tweet mentions ‘The Beasts are coming’ and 11:11, which is plenty of evidence to suggest the brand is indeed talking about the much-anticipated Redmi Note 11 series.
We can speculate the global Redmi Note 11 series models will be launching in India instead of the Chinese models considering it already introduced the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Note 11 Pro+ (China variants) as Xiaomi 11i and 11i HyperCharge in the country. The global Redmi Note 11 series comprises four models: Note 11, Note 11 Pro, Note 11 Pro 5G, and Note 11S. We believe all models will find their way to the Indian market except for the Note 11 Pro 5G as a move to keep the price lower. We should know more details about the phones going forward.
Additionally, the company has confirmed it will be launching the Redmi Smart Band Pro on February 9th on the same stage. It was originally unveiled in China back in October alongside the Redmi Watch 2 Lite.
