Xiaomi will also launch the Redmi Smart Band Pro budget fitness band alongside the Redmi Note 11 series on the same day.
A day after launching it in global markets, Xiaomi has announced that it’s set to bring the Redmi Note 11 series to India on February 9. We knew that Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 11S on the said date, but today, it confirmed that multiple models will be coming. In a carefully drafted post on social media, the company teased “the beasts are coming.”
An accompanying image suggests there could be three models but we will have to wait and watch out on that one. Xiaomi isn’t sharing the names of these phones, yet, but going by how it likes to do things, we will know soon enough. Also, Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Smart Band Pro budget fitness band alongside the Redmi Note 11 series on the same day.
Xiaomi launched as many as four Redmi Note 11 phones globally last night. These are the Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11S, Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G. Of these, the Redmi Note 11S is already confirmed to launch in India. As for the other models, we will have to wait and watch, how that pans out.
Oddly enough, Xiaomi kicked off all things Redmi Note 11 in India with the Redmi Note 11T 5G. The Note 10 series made their debut with the Redmi Note 10, Note 10 Pro, and Note 10 Pro Max. The Note 10T 5G and Note 10S came later. It’s the other way round for the Note 11 series. Regardless, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note series has been a bestseller in India and it’s safe to assume, expectations will be sky high with the upcoming launch.
