On May 24 Xiaomi has delivered on a promise of more powerful Redmi Note 11 device, by introducing Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro+. But these 2 were not the only devices, introduced by Xiaomi. Let’s learn more about all the upcoming devices in this article.
Redmi Note 11T Pro/Pro+
Both phones share not just a design but are mostly identical in specs. Xiaomi went with 6.6″ FullHD+ IPS LCD with 144Hz refresh rate, and Dimensity 8100 SoC on each of the phones, with up to 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage (Pro+ can offer even more with 512 Gb option).
Camera-wise there’s nothing too spectacular: 64MP main module with 1/1.72″ sensor, 8 MP ultrawide with 120º FOV, and a 2 MP macro lens. Selfie cam has 16 Mp module.
Series staples, like 3.5 mm headphone jack, NFC and IR-Blaster are all here for your convenience.
Where 2 models are really different is in Battery department. Redmi Note 11T Pro+ offers smaller 4400 mAh battery but a faster 120W charging speed, provided by Surge P1 chip, developed in house. Redmi Note 11T Pro, instead, offers larger 5080 mAh battery but 67W charging speed. So it’s up to you to decide whether you need a bigger battery or a faster charging.
Redmi Note 11T Pro price starts at CNY 1,799 ($270) for 6+128 GB model and tops at CNY 2,199 ($330) for 8+256 GB model. Plus version starts at CNY 2,099 ($315) for 8+128GB version, while the top of the line 8+512GB model will retail for CNY 2,499 ($375).There’s also a special Astro Boy edition of 11T Pro+ with 8+512GB and a CNY 2,499 ($375) price tag.
Both phones will be available in China on May 31. It is not yet known whether or no this devices will reach global market, and at what price.
Redmi Note 11 SE
You’d be forgiven if you say that you have already seen this device somewhere. China finaly receives its own POCO M3 Pro, which has absolutely identical specs: 6.5″ FHD+ LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate; 48MP main camera with 2MP depth sensor (2MP macro sensor from POCO is notably missing), and an 8MP selfie cam; Dimensity 700 SoC; 4/8GB of RAM + 128GB of storage; 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging speed.
4+128GB version will sell for CNY 1,099 ($165) while the 8+128GB version will be sold at CNY 1,399 ($210). Sales of both versions in China start on May 31. But why would you need it when POCO M3 Pro is still available globally at almost the same price.
Xiaomi Band 7
Despite the multiple rumours, Xiaomi Band 7 is an incremental upgrade over the last year’s model. The display got larger – 1.62”, up from 1.56”, while the resolution is 490×192px. There’s an addition of Always-On function which is welcome.
SpO² sensor was improved, as well as an activity tracker – now it supports 120 training modes, 4 professional sports modes, and an automatic workout detection. The battery has 180 mAh capacity and should last up to 14 days, and we assume that’s with Always-On display function being turned off.
There are still 2 models: with and without NFC, at CNY 299 ($45) and CNY 239 ($36) respectively. Both models will go on sale on May 31. Global release date was not announced yet, but we can expect that it will happen soon and at a higher price.
Redmi Buds 4/Redmi Buds 4 Pro
Xiaomi also decided to update its Redmi earbuds with 2 new models. Redmi Buds 4 Pro is the most improved, with an updated design, Bluetooth 5.3, ANC that can suppress up to 43 dB of noise, and surround sound support. Earbuds allow 9 hours of listening without ANC and the case provides up to 36 hours of additional battery life.
Redmi Buds 4 looks like a rebranded Redmi Buds 3 Pro, with the same design, Bluetooth 5.2, 35 dB ANC, but slightly improved battery life: up to 30 hours of listening with the case, and up to 6 hours on it’s own. There’s also a new color option – Blue.
Both earphones will go on sale on May 31 with the CNY 199 ($30) price tag for the Redmi Buds 4 and CNY 369 ($55.5) for the Pro version.
