To recall, the company launched the Redmi Note 11 series in China this October. Redmi Note 11 5G arrived in the Indian market as Redmi Note 11T.

Redmi Note 11S Specifications (rumoured)

Details of the alleged Redmi Note 11S recently appeared online. According to a report, the upcoming Redmi smartphone will be equipped with a MediaTek chipset, although the name of the processor was not disclosed. The report further indicates that the Redmi Note 11S will pack either a 108-megapixel Samsung HM2 sensor or a 64-megapixel Omnivision OV6480 sensor as the primary camera depending on the market. The phone could have a triple camera setup, in which the primary camera is supported by 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 ultra-wide camera and 2-megapixel OV02A macro camera.

The report also mentions the K7S model with the Miel_pro codename. The model is said to pack a 108-megapixel Samsung HM2 camera sensor. Another model ‘K7P’ codenamed Fleur is also expected to hit the global markets, but under Xiaomi’s sub-brand Poco. Reports suggest that the model will have the same specifications as the K7S model.
