There seems to be no stopping Xiaomi. After launching countless many versions of the Redmi Note 10—five of those are sold in India—the company seems on course to do the same with its successor line, the Redmi Note 11. Days after launching the Redmi Note 11 5G, Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, and Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G, Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Note 11 4G in China which is nothing but a Redmi Note 10 with a slightly tweaked camera setup.

The Redmi Note 11 4G has a 6.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate and hole punch cut-out. Under the hood, it has a MediaTek Helio G88 system-on-chip paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Software is MIUI 12.5. Rounding off the package is a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging and 9W reverse wired charging. All this is same as the existing Redmi Note 10.
