Xiaomi has introduced the Redmi Note 11 series, meant to be the company’s classic line of budget-friendly devices that are popular in many countries apart from us.
There are four phones – the elite Redmi Note 11 Pro, Pro 5G, budget-friendly Redmi Note 11 & Note 11S, with few distinctions. Xiaomi is in need of “unique flat-edge posture.” They look like iPhones — and at least two variants share most of the specs.
Xiaomi’s Smart Air Purifier 4 series, which starts at USD 199, was also launched together with the smartphones.
Redmi Note 11 Pro and Pro 5G

Both devices will have inbuilt MIUI 13, based on Android 11. In addition, both phones include hybrid card trays, which allow you to insert a microSD card rather than a second SIM card.
