Xiaomi’s official Weibo account continues to tease features for the Redmi Note 11 series (mostly focusing on the Pro), there are other sources of information – like TENAA, which certified a phone that according to Digital Chat Station is the vanilla model.
The Redmi Note 11 has a 6.6” 1,080 x 2,400 px display (20:9). The TENAA listing says it is an OLED, though DCS claims that this is a mistake and that the phone is really equipped with an LCD (the Pro model is confirmed to have an OLED panel, though). Also, the fingerprint reader is not behind the display, but on the side of the phone, continues the leakster. Unfortunately, TENAA didn’t publish images of the phone, so we can’t verify that yet.
The camera setup on the back sounds pretty barebones with a 16 MP main module and a 5 MP secondary cam. This is well short of the 108 MP camera on the Pro model. And it is not the only difference between the vanilla and Pro phones.
The Note 11 is reportedly powered by a Dimensity 810 chipset, the pared back version of the Dimensity 920 inside the Pro model. There is a wide range of memory configurations listed by the Chinese regulator: 4/6/8/12 GB of RAM and 64/128/256/512 GB storage. And that’s with a microSD slot, it’s almost hard to believe (especially the 12/512 GB option on a middle model of a mid-range series).
The battery has 4,900 mAh capacity. There is no charge rate mentioned here, but seemingly the same model (21091116AC) also went through the 3C where it was certified with 33W charging (again, quite a way away from the 120W charging of the Pro). This model number has also been tied to the Poco M4 Pro that is expected in November, so we may see variants of the same hardware in different product lines.

Anyway, a few last tidbits from TENAA on the (supposed) Redmi Note 11. It will have a 3.5 mm headphone jack and an IR blaster. It measures 163.56 x 75.78 x 8.75 mm and weighs 195g.
We’ll finish up with some official details for the Redmi Note 11 series. The focus of Xiaomi’s teaser campaign today is “JBL Symmetric Stereo”, that is stereo sound with two equal speakers (rather than loudspeaker + earpiece). The two speakers are also positioned such that you don’t block them with your hands while holding the phone horizontally, be it for gaming of videos. The series will also boast Dolby Atmos, Hi-Res Audio and Hi-Res Audio Wireless support.
The full unveiling is scheduled for tomorrow, October 28.
