Chinese manufacturer, Xiaomi, is doing a lot of work on its Redmi sub-brand. The Redmi Note 10 series is the company’s latest series but users are already waiting for the successor, Redmi Note 11 series. The first sales of the Redmi Note 10 series took place at the Chinese 618 sales. This smartphone series has a starting price of 999 yuan ($155) which is very competitive. Yesterday, Lu Weibing, President of Xiaomi Group China and General Manager of Redmi Brand, published a post discussing the new products of the next-generation Note series. He asked netizens the surprises that they will like to see.
From the comment section, the most popular idea is to get an OLED screen. Redmi has used AMOLED screens on the Redmi 10X series before. In addition, the Redmi Note series global version also uses AMOLED screens. However, the Chinese version of the Redmi Note series has always used LCD screens that support a high refresh rate of 120Hz. Despite the extraordinary screen quality, the Redmi Note series fans in China want OLED. As we know, Lu Weibing usually responds to popular requests. Thus, the Redmi Note 11 series in China may be coming with an OLED display.
Gizchina News of the week
Presently, OLED displays are widely used in mid-range and flagship products. The Redmi K40 series use AMOLED screens and the Xiaomi Mi 11 series also use AMOLED screens. From a trend point of view, LCD’s share in the mid-to-high-end market will be further squeezed by OLED screens. Therefore, we can not rule out the possibility that the Redmi Note 11 may use AMOLED screens.
Redmi smartphone with an under-screen camera is coming
A recent Weibo post from @DCS, claims that a Redmi smartphone with an under-screen technology is on the way. His Weibo post also shows that this device supports a 6.7-inch display with a FHD+ resolution. Of course, this is the engineering model of this device. Furthermore, it supports a high refresh rate and will be official next year. There are speculations that this device may be the Redmi K50 series. Xiaomi will mass-produce commercial under-screen camera technology in the second half of this year. The first model to use this technology may be in the MIX series.
Furthermore, other major manufacturers like Samsung will also use the under-screen camera technology. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 will this technology. This solution appears to be the best solution in the full-screen era. The application of under-screen camera technology will finally bring the era of punch-hole screens to a successful end.
