Redmi Note 11 4G smartphone’s global variant will probably pack a Snapdragon 680 chipset under the hood. Redmi launched the new smartphone in its home country of China back in October. To recall, the Redmi Note 11 5G series includes the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G, Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, and the Redmi Note 11 5G model. Now, the electronics company seems to be prepping to launch the Redmi Note 11 4G globally.
However, a fresh piece of information suggests the global variant will not be the same as the Chinese model. The popular brand unveiled the Redmi Note 11 4G smartphone in China not too long ago. The aforesaid Redmi Note 11 series smartphones use MediaTek processors. Now, a recently surfaced leak suggests that the purported Redmi Note 11 4G global variant will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor.
Redmi Note 11 4G Global Variant To Pack Snapdragon 680
A source has confirmed to ThePixel that the Redmi Note 11 4G global variant will be powered by the Snapdragon 680 chipset from Qualcomm. It is worth mentioning here that the Chinese version of the smartphone comes with a MediaTek Helio G88 SoC. Aside from that, the report sheds more light on the price tag the Redmi Note 11 4G global variant could be carrying. The report claims that the global variant with 64GB and 64GB storage will retail for about $199 (about INR 15,068).
However, it is safe to assume that the global variant will launch in other RAM and onboard storage options like 6GB RAM+128GB storage and 8GB RAM+128GB storage. The report does not divulge details about the pricing of the aforesaid variants. Nevertheless, the report claims that the Redmi Note 11 4G global variant will be more affordable than the much-awaited Realme 9i smartphone. For the uninitiated, the upcoming Realme 9i will reportedly pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC, and house a 50MP triple camera setup at the back.
Aside from that, the Realme 9i is likely to sport a 90Hz refresh rate screen. The display will deliver a Full HD+ resolution. Earlier this month, Realme 9i design renders, showcasing the phone’s display and camera setup had popped up on the internet.
What Else To Expect?
An earlier report by ThePixel focused on the phone’s design. It indicated that the Redmi Note series will adopt a design language that will be different from its Chinese counterparts. Although the new report repeats the same thing, it does not reveal any vital information about the upcoming phone’s design. Regrettably, other key details about the upcoming smartphone are still few and far between. The Redmi phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor could launch in India, along with other regions soon.
