Redmi Note 11 4G Clears Product Certifications Outside China; Global Launch is Coming

Faisal Rasool

Redmi Note 11 series, the latest generation of the Redmi Note family, dropped in China this year. It features Xiaomi Note 11 Pro, Note 11 Pro+, and the standard Note 11. The 5G edition of the Note 11 is already available in India. And now Xiaomi is gearing up for the global debut of the Redmi Note 11 4G. The phone is being certified by regulatory bodies all over the world.

It might not come out until next year, but the Redmi Note 11 4G has cleared product certifications from IMDA (of Singapore’s Ministry of Communications and Information.) The Russian EEC also signed off on the phone. However, since they only certify connectivity specs, the public listings lack system information.

For those internal specs, we can turn to the rumor mill. Xiaomi releases the Chinese and global variants with different chips more often than not. So while the domestic version of the Redmi Note 11 has the MediaTek Helio G88 at its heart, the international edition runs on Qualcomm silicon. Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, if you go by recent reports.

It’s a newly-announced 4G chip built on an efficient 6nm node. Inside it, the octa-core CPU clocks at 2.4GHz. And the GPU is the two-year-old Adreno 610. Of course, the previous-gen Snapdragon 662 and its variants rock the same graphics chip. But the performance is still comparable to the Mali G52 GPU inside the Helio G88 at an affordable Xiaomi mobile price.

The Redmi Note 10 4G launched with a SuperAMOLED screen. However, the Note 11 4G features a standard 6.5” 1080P IPS LCD. Therefore, some might consider it a downgrade.

The cameras are a sidegrade, more or less. Its triple-lens camera is a cluster of 50MP wide, 8MP ultra-wide, and 2MP macro shooters. The 5000 mAh battery inside can quick-charge at 18W. It comes in 4GB+64GB, 6GB+128GB, and 8GB+128GB options. The base version starts from ~ PKR 35,400.
