Redmi Note 11 launch live blog: Xiaomi’s new cheap phones debut today


Half an hour before the event properly kicks off, the Redmi live stream has kicked off. You can find it via the Weibo live stream function by clicking here.

As we said, this is a China-only event, so the speech and videos played won’t exactly be in English. However lots of the features will be easy to understand – a big outline of a phone with the text ‘2340 x 1080’ will obviously refer to resolution, for example.

Plus, we’ve covered enough of these events to work out what’s going on, even though we don’t speak Chinese (and barely speak English before our fifth coffee). So keep on this live blog for the important information.

It sounds like some other devices are launching alongside the Redmi Note 11, and a successor to the Redmi Watch is expected to be one of them.

The original Redmi Watch was a super-affordable smartwatch with barebones specs and a square body, with a few key health and fitness features. We’d expect the successor to add some new tools and improve the specs.

We know this will be called the Redmi Watch 2, because Xiaomi itself confirmed it. The design looks similar, but there might be a bigger battery, sturdier build or changed strap material.

One hour left until the Redmi Note 11 launch kicks off – time to get ready!

One intriguing leak we’ve heard for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 series, is that both phones could come with MediaTek chipsets, instead of Snapdragon which previous Redmi devices have used.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips are used in most Android phones, but MediaTek is quickly growing in popularity, with more and more budget and mid-range devices getting its Helio or Dimensity processors.

Apparently the Redmi Note 11 will get the Dimensity 810 and the Pro will get 920, both mid-range chips. It’s worth noting, though, that other details included in this leak contradicted the aforementioned 108MP snapper rumor, so it might not be correct.

Something else we’ve heard about the Redmi Note 11 series is its camera spec: according to a leak, at least one of the phones will have a 108MP camera.

That’s not totally surprising, since the Note 10 Pro (pictured above) had one, but it shows Xiaomi is sticking with this super-high-res camera specs.

So it’s very likely the Note 11 Pro will have a 108MP snapper, but maybe the Note 11 will, as other brands are putting this sensor on cheaper and cheaper phones too.

Despite the fact they haven’t launched yet, we’ve already heard quite a bit about the new Redmi Note 11 phones.

Take, for instance, their designs: Xiaomi has been teasing these phones for a few days solid, sharing plenty of snaps of the phones. So we know they’ll have iPhone-like flat edges, though similar appearances in other regards to previous Redmi Note phones.

The version of the device we’ve been shown is green, though there will likely be many more hues available.

There’s still a bit of time to go until the Redmi Note 11 launch event kicks off, so you’ve got time to make a cup of coffee or six. Get ready for the event by checking out what we thought of the previous Redmi devices:

In our Redmi Note 10 Pro review we heaped praise on the phone, particularly its speakers, screen and long-lasting battery. Our big problem was that it didn’t have 5G, despite high specs across the board elsewhere.

We also tested the Redmi Note 10 5G, which as the name suggests did indeed have 5G. Our review was a little more mixed, praising its 5G connectivity, long-lasting battery life and classy design, but its limited camera array, iffy screen quality and mediocre performance left a lot to be desired.

TechRadar’s Indian bureau also tested the Redmi Note 10 and Note 10 Pro Max, giving both high scores for similar reasons. We were impressed by the display and battery life of both, with the low cost of both phones making it easy to appreciate them, though the cameras weren’t always as impressive.
