The successor to the Redmi Note 10S is launching soon. Xiaomi today announced that it will debut a new smartphone in India February 9th.

(Update, January 26: So February 9 is for the Indian market. Because the 11S, along with other Redmi Note 11 series phones, are official on the global market!)

The Redmi Note 11S is set to launch just days after the global announcement of the new Redmi Note 11 series on January 26. In the Philippines, the Note 10S carried a starting retail price of P10,990 (around $214) at launch, while the variant with 128GB of storage was originally priced at P11,990 ($233). Last year’s device was powered by a MediaTek Helio G95 4G chipset.

The teaser poster for the Redmi Note 11S shared on Twitter shows the back of the phone, revealing a rectangular camera setup with four rear-facing lenses and a flat frame similar to the Redmi Note 11‘s. Like the vanilla Note 11 model, the Note 11S will also come in a solid-blue color.

Announcement of launch date

As we at Revü found out more than a week ago, the Note 11S will boast a 108-megapixel image sensor, likely the same Samsung Isocell HM2 sensor found in the main camera of the Redmi Note 10 Pro. It has also been tipped to feature an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 sensor behind an ultra-wide lens and a pair of 2-megapixel sensors for portrait and macro shots.

The device will reportedly sport a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, making it a decent choice for gaming, assuming its chipset is capable of outputting 60 fps in certain games. Speaking of, the handset may come with a MediaTek Helio G96, which is a 4G chip that delivers decent performance. The processor may be paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage.

Considering the Redmi Note 11S’ positioning as an affordable phone that can do it all, it’s hard to imagine Xiaomi opting for a 5G chipset. Maybe future iterations will support the latest mobile standard. Other rumored specs include MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11 and a 5,000mAh battery that can charge up to 33 watts over USB-C.
