Redmi Note 11 launch live blog: Xiaomi’s new cheap phones debut right now


Let’s discuss concerning the 108MP digicam getting used within the Redmi Observe 11 Professional and Professional Plus.

That is the Samsung HM2 sensor which we beforehand noticed within the Redmi Observe 10 Professional in addition to the Realme 8 Pro, Motorola Edge 20 sequence, Xiaomi 11T sequence and Honor 50 sequence.

It is not the highest 108MP sensor round, because the HM3 used within the Galaxy S21 Ultra has an even bigger sensor for seeing extra gentle, however the HM2 beats the HMX and HM1 utilized in some older gadgets just like the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

The true check of digicam cellphone is how effectively its AI scene optimization tweaks photographs to make them look nice, and it is an space Redmi telephones have been okay in, however by no means incredible. 108MP photographs carry quite a lot of info to be parsed, and good software program must be succesful at turning the snap into an excellent photograph.

We’ll have to check the Redmi Observe 11 to see how effectively it fares in our digicam runs, to see the way it compares in opposition to same-sensor rivals.

Now that the brand new Redmi telephones are each 5G-enabled, what does this imply for 4G telephones? Are they over? It is an fascinating co-incidence that that is taking place simply days after Qualcomm unveiled a few new 5G chipsets, and one less-than-popular 4G one.

That is the pure evolution of tech, with issues getting sooner and next-gen-ier, and you do not see 3G telephones any extra – eventually all mobiles can be 5G ones.

The Redmi Observe 10 line had been among the few well-specced price range telephones within the final yr that did not have 5G, although some low cost ones from different bands like Nokia and Motorola nonetheless caught to 4G.

Until the Redmi 11 telephones get 4G, evidently Xiaomi has now absolutely jumped ship to next-gen connectivity.

In response to a Xiaomi blog post, the Redmi Watch 2 and Buds 3 Lite can be obtainable from November 11, however no launch date is given for the smartphones.

That is a launch date in China in fact, and once we contacted Xiaomi for any details about a world launch, they informed us that they had nothing to share proper now.

So do not anticipate a launch outdoors China imminently – we might anticipate it is coming within the new yr on the earliest, and possibly even later.

We’re liking the colour combos of the Redmi Watch 2 – we are able to see 5 totally different band shades and at the least three totally different physique ones, and hopefully you may combine and match.

It resembles Samsung’s Galaxy Bespoke, introduced final week, which helps you to select the colours of various components of a tool. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 was one, letting you select which shade of band and physique.

It would not appear that there are fairly as many choices for the Redmi Watch, but it surely’s a step in the suitable (colourful) route.

One of many large adjustments within the Redmi Observe 11 sequence is the bounce from curvy edges of the machine to flat ones.

Xiaomi did not deal with this through the convention, but it surely’s an intriguing shift, particularly as a result of it might have an effect on the hand-feel (sure, that is the technical time period for it, we have determined) if the gadgets.

We’re curious to check out the gadgets, to see if the impression is as large as we think about. After we examined the Motorola Edge 20 Pro we observed the sting made it uncomfortable to carry, so it might be the identical right here.

Proper, I will shortly prepare dinner some lunch then take a deeper dive into what we noticed as we speak, and what you have to learn about it.

The one factor I’ve in my fridge is a few garlic bread, so lunch might be going to be… only a loaf of garlic bread. Good and wholesome.

Aaand that is a wrap!

After precisely 90 minutes, the Redmi Observe 11 occasion has formally completed.

Here is a full checklist of what we noticed:

  • Redmi Observe 11
  • Redmi Observe 11 Professional
  • Redmi Observe 11 Professional Plus
  • Redmi Observe 11 Yibo Design Version
  • Redmi Watch 2
  • Redmi Buds 3

Now Xiaomi is simply recapping another merchandise it launched within the final yr, as some have had value tags.

For individuals residing outdoors China, that is only a checklist of telephones we won’t purchase – the Mi Mix 4, the Mi Mix Fold, the Mi 10S, the checklist goes on. I actually want I might check out that Fold!

There are additionally particulars on extra sensible residence merchandise like vacuums, fridges, TVs, bins of some description that in all probability do one thing. Nothing for us right here.

The occasion has been occurring for 90 minutes, so presumably it’s going to begin winding down now? We have seen every part we anticipated, save for a successor to the Redmi Band, although that was solely rumored about and never confirmed forward of time just like the Redmi Watch 2 was.

The corporate has spent extra time displaying off the design of this Yibo Redmi Observe 11, than it did the Redmi Watch 2 and Buds 3 mixed, however with a (presumably) big-name celeb to put it up for sale, that is smart.

Here is one thing fascinating – the Redmi Observe 11 Yibo Design.

It is a model of the Observe 11 designed after Wang Yibo, a Chinese language leisure all-rounder who acts, sings, dances, raps, hosts TV reveals and in addition professionally drives bikes, in response to his Wikipedia web page, although he would not appear fairly snug to be on stage right here.

This model of the cellphone is inexperienced with black racing stripes – it looks as if it is primarily based on the motorcycle-racing a part of his profession – and it has a vivid yellow signature on the highest too.

As a result of reality that is primarily based on a Chinese language celeb, this nearly undoubtedly will not get launched globally, although we won’t say that with absolute certainty.

There are some new earbuds too, costing CNY99 (about $15, £10, AU$20). That is a startlingly low value, they cannot be that nice – proper?

Once more, Xiaomi launches a great deal of earbuds in China that by no means make their option to a world market, so we do not know if we’ll ever get to check them.

Here is a full specs checklist for the Redmi Watch 2.

Nothing notably stands out right here past the massive variety of sports activities mode, however ‘amount’ is not the identical as ‘high quality’ so we’ll have to check it to see how effectively it really works.

Both approach, that is an excellent low value.

The Redmi Watch 2 prices CNY349, which converts to only $50, £40, AU$70 – we’re not clear on whether or not this can come to international markets although, as the unique did not.

The get together’s not over but although – the Redmi Watch 2 is right here.

Apparently this price range watch has 5ATM safety, built-in GPS (as the unique) and 117 sports activities modes (far more than the 11 within the authentic).

It is a pretty handsome watch, and there appear to be loads of coloration choices.

Just a few extra detials concerning the Observe 11 have been shared. It’s going to have a 50MP primary digicam joined by an 8MP ultra-wider, in addition to a 16MP selfie digicam.

The cellphone will begin at CNY1,199 for 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, choices which can improve as much as 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. That intial value prices $190, £140, AU$250, which is supremely low.

Lastly, we’re onto the usual Redmi Observe 11 Professional.

It’s going to be a 5G cellphone, displaying that the complete household can be (not like the Observe 10 gadgets). Its display screen could have a 90Hz refresh price, it’s going to have a 5,000mAh battery and can include 128GB storage. The chipset is the MediaTek Dimensity 810, the charging velocity is 33W, and it will are available in a variety of colours.

There is a 3.5mm headphone jack right here, and the cellphone has an IP53 ranking.

Wow, Xiaomi simply sped by way of the main points of the cellphone – did they make a brand new land velocity report?

Apparently the Redmi Observe 11 Professional Plus prices CNY 1,899, which converts to about $300, £220, AU$400 – it seems like the one distinction between it, and the non-Plus machine, is the charging velocity and battery. Oh, and there isn’t any paleish blue possibility.

Costs for each telephones go larger, however as we mentioned, they probably do not mirror how a lot the handsets will value in international areas.

Oh, and the Professional Plus may not launch in too many areas. 

The occasion has been going for an hour now, and nonetheless no point out of the usual Redmi Observe 11.

That does not imply it would not exist, it simply means it is completely not the precedence for Xiaomi. The occasion’s not over although, as we all know some wearables are nonetheless coming – keep tuned and hopefully it’s going to break cowl quickly (or as quickly as we press ‘publish’ on this publish).

Xiaomi is evaluating the specs of its Observe 11 Professional to a sequence of different gadgets, and displaying how the Redmi beats all of them.

Curiously, thus far, Xiaomi has solely in contrast itself with Honor gadgets, and no different rivals from Realme or the like.

We have additionally heard a value: CNY 1,599 for 6GB RAM and 128GB storage which converts to about £180, $250, AU330, although international costs might be fairly totally different.

Scores on the doorways: what do we all know concerning the Redmi Observe 10 Professional thus far?

The cellphone could have a 5,160mAh battery with 67W charging. Its display screen is 6.67-inches large and makes use of AMOLED tech with 120Hz refresh price. The front-facing digicam in a cut-out could be very small.

The primary digicam right here is 108MP, although there are extra snappers we’ve not heard about. The audio is tuned by JBL and the chipset is the MediaTek 920, which implies the cellphone is 5G linked.

Xiaomi is wrapping up its part on the Observe 11 Professional by the sounds of it, suggesting we’re transferring onto the usual mannequin now.

Now we’re seeing some circumstances for the Redmi Observe 11 Professional.

They give the impression of being good, however we might slightly hear concerning the Observe 11 itself.

Telephone manufacturers typically do that – spend most of a launch occasion detailing the top-end handset as a substitute of the ‘vanilla’ one – however the cheaper possibility typically finally ends up because the better-value one anyway.

Subsequent up, efficiency – we’re listening to how the Redmi Observe 11 Professional is utilizing the MediaTek 920 chipset.

Even Xiaomi admits this is not as highly effective because the Snapdragon 778G it is used for different low cost telephones, however in response to a graph, it is not far behind both. Maybe this might be an indication the telephones can be cheaper than the Redmi Observe 10 gadgets.

Nonetheless the Observe 10 telephones weren’t 5G fashions (aside from the Observe 10 5G) so as a substitute, we might see 5G throughout the board for the Observe 11 gadgets.

Now they’ve moved into discussing the Redmi Observe 11 Professional digicam in additional particulars – they’re displaying the 108MP digicam to be used in portrait pictures.

Apparently it is a f/1.89 snapper with twin IOS. We have seen some portrait and panorama pictures that look nice, although these might have been edited after being taken.

Many cellphone manufacturers get audio firms to tune their audio system, like how Samsung customers Harman Kardon, and typically it really works very well, however different occasions it feels extra like a advertising ploy.

Xiaomi used Harman Kardon for its Xiaomi Mi 11, so it is fascinating to see it transfer to a different firm for Redmi gadgets.

It’s extremely onerous for cellphone manufacturers to reveal the standard of their cell’s audio at a launch occasion, and that is no exception.

Displaying some individuals in a choir singing would not precisely inform us how good the audio system are, even when there’s some man in a jumper dancing to them. Apparently Xiaomi missed this memo?

Redmi has confirmed that the Observe 11 telephones’ audio system have been tuned by JBL.

We requested TechRadar’s resident audio professional, Olivia Tambini, for the low-down on this large audio model.

“JBL has an excellent popularity relating to audio, with its iconic floorstanding audio system changing into fashionable additions to residence hi-fi methods within the Nineteen Seventies. Since then, the corporate has branched out into headphones, wi-fi earbuds, and Bluetooth audio system. Usually, the corporate’s merchandise are well-tuned, with dynamic and punchy soundstages. In fact, this does not translate to each JBL machine, and a few of its cheaper headphones and audio system are missing intimately and readability.”

The Redmi Observe 11 Professional could have twin audio system, so one on the prime and one on the backside, which ought to enhance high quality when taking part in video games or streaming films and TV.

We’re seeing the cellphone within the flesh.

Apparently the Redmi Observe 11 Professional could have a 6.67-inch AMOLED show with DCI-P3 colours, a blue gentle filter, a front-facing digicam in a cut-out with a 2.96mm measurement and bezels lower than 2mm thick.

That front-facing digicam really does look tiny, and it undoubtedly will not take up a lot display screen area.

Now that is what I name a pink cellphone.

We’re seeing totally different variations of the Redmi Observe 11 Professional together with a inexperienced one, a black one, a blueish violet one, and the pink one you may see above.

As you may guess by the actual fact we shared this picture, the colourful pink one is our favourite, although that is as a lot as a result of the others are uninteresting, or have simply been utilized in too many telephones earlier than.

Redmi Note 11 event

No factors for guessing the Redmi Observe 11 Professional’s digicam specs any extra, not with that big 108MP brand there.

We additionally see two extra lenses, a depth sensor and an LED flash.

Apparently the again of the cellphone additionally has anti-glare glass.

Observe 11 Professional info: it’s going to have a 5,160mAh battery and can energy up at 67W. That is a promising battery measurement for a smartphone, as something above 5,000mAh is usually nice, and the charging velocity can be greater than sufficient for many anyway.

The Redmi Observe 11 Professional Plus could have a 8.34mm thickness, which apparently makes it the thinnest cellphone with this sort of charging velocity and battery measurement.

We might prefer to know what the precise battery life is although – it is no use having super-speedy charging if you have to energy the machine a number of occasions per day. This sort of lasting energy relies upon as a lot on optimizations in software program, as bodily battery measurement.

Oh, and the cellphone will ship with a charger within the field apparently.

Wow, they’re actually occurring concerning the Observe 11 Professional Plus’ 120W charging. Admittedly it’s extremely quick, however we’re eager to listen to concerning the charging speeds (and every part else) concerning the Observe 11 and Observe 11 Professional.

Admittedly, we’re saying this to jinx it – each time we write in reside blogs saying ‘they have not introduced X’ they go forward and announce it, simply to spite us.

The Redmi Observe 11 Professional Plus will get 120W quick charging together with a 4,500mAh battery. We’re seeing a trailer the place an individual will get right into a super-cold tub of water and sits there, whereas the cellphone prices. 

Apparently the machine prices to full within the time in the identical time you could maintain your breath – so long as you are a superhuman breath-holder. 

It took simply quarter-hour to cost to full although, which is genuinely spectacular.

Right here we go – we’re diving into particulars on the cellphone.

Surprisingly, there is a Observe 11 Professional Plus, with 120W quick charging like on the Xiaomi 11T Pro. Primarily based on previous efficiency, this may not get a world launch, at the least not beneath the Professional Plus identify.

Redmi Note 8 Pro

(Picture credit score: Future)

Since Redmi is now giving a historical past of its Redmi Observe telephones, I will do the identical.

Pictured above is the primary Observe cellphone I examined (if I bear in mind proper), the Note 8 Pro, again from when the model wasn’t almost as large in my nation as it’s now.

That cellphone undoubtedly did not have JBL-tuned audio system, a 108MP digicam or a strong mid-range processor, as we’re anticipating the Observe 11 gadgets to get.

Redmi Note 11 event campus

(Picture credit score: Xiaomi)

We have simply seen a picture of the Xiaomi Redmi campus, and it appears extra like a Caribbean vacation resort than a piece area. 

Is {that a} lake within the center? TechRadar HQ would not have a lake within the center (effectively, typically after I do a tea run and drop the tray it does, however that does not actually matter).

That is simply extra discuss concerning the firm, and never concerning the new telephones. We have seen individuals from the model discuss for half an hour earlier than at different occasions, earlier than displaying off tech, so if you wish to verify your texts now’s the time.

Redmi Note 11 event

(Picture credit score: Xiaomi)

And here is the pre-amble we warned about: Xiaomi is simply discussing its model and historical past for the time being. 

Individuals who watch these Xiaomi occasions rather a lot would possibly acknowledge that piano music within the background, and it is as a result of the corporate has used it many occasions earlier than. It sounds slightly Minecraft-esque.

And it begins!

5 minutes to go till the occasion begins, and all of the quirky trailers for Redmi and Xiaomi merchandise have stopped. Now’s when you have to shortly make a cup of espresso and a sandwich earlier than the true occasion begins…

… wait, I knew I forgot to brew somthing!

As per most tech occasions, we’ll probably see fairly a pre-amble earlier than the telephones and wearables are proven off, as the corporate discusses its historical past and its place within the cell market. So should you nonetheless have to make a espresso, you will have time.

Redmi K40 Gaming phone

There’s an advert taking part in for the Redmi K40 Gaming Version, which by no means obtained a world launch. Specifically, we’re seeing a Bruce Lee model of the cellphone which is yellow with a black stripe, and it is definitely obtained a hanging look.

This is only one of many handsets from Redmi which does not launch outdoors China, however we’re not anticipating the Redmi Observe 11 to be like that.

Xiaomi CyberDog

The video taking part in proper now’s simply displaying off varied Redmi merchandise, together with its laptop computer and different telephones. We even obtained a point out of Xiaomi’s CyberDog (pictured above) crossing a road.

It is all the time stunning how large of a product ecosystem these Chinese language tech manufacturers have of their residence nation, that by no means launch outdoors the nation. I would like to have a fully-kitted out sensible residence. I would additionally prefer to personal a house in any respect…

Half an hour earlier than the occasion correctly kicks off, the Redmi reside stream has kicked off. You will discover it through the Weibo live stream function by clicking here.

As we mentioned, this can be a China-only occasion, so the speech and movies performed will not precisely be in English. Nonetheless plenty of the options can be simple to know – an enormous define of a cellphone with the textual content ‘2340 x 1080’ will clearly consult with decision, for instance.

Plus, we have lined sufficient of those occasions to work out what is going on on, despite the fact that we do not converse Chinese language (and barely converse English earlier than our fifth espresso). So carry on this reside weblog for the necessary info.

Redmi Watch

(Picture credit score: Srivatsa Ramesh)

It seems like another gadgets are launching alongside the Redmi Observe 11, and a successor to the Redmi Watch is expected to be one of them.

The unique Redmi Watch was a super-affordable smartwatch with barebones specs and a sq. physique, with a couple of key well being and health options. We might anticipate the successor so as to add some new instruments and enhance the specs.

We all know this can be referred to as the Redmi Watch 2, as a result of Xiaomi itself confirmed it. The design appears related, however there may be an even bigger battery, sturdier construct or modified strap materials.

One hour left till the Redmi Observe 11 launch kicks off – time to prepare!

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G

One intriguing leak we’ve heard for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 series, is that each telephones might include MediaTek chipsets, as a substitute of Snapdragon which earlier Redmi gadgets have used.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips are utilized in most Android telephones, however MediaTek is shortly rising in reputation, with an increasing number of price range and mid-range gadgets getting its Helio or Dimensity processors.

Apparently the Redmi Observe 11 will get the Dimensity 810 and the Professional will get 920, each mid-range chips. It is value noting, although, that different particulars included on this leak contradicted the aforementioned 108MP snapper rumor, so it may not be right.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro

One thing else we have heard concerning the Redmi Observe 11 sequence is its digicam spec: according to a leak, at the least one of many telephones could have a 108MP digicam.

That is not completely stunning, for the reason that Observe 10 Professional (pictured above) had one, but it surely reveals Xiaomi is sticking with this super-high-res digicam specs.

So it’s extremely probably the Observe 11 Professional could have a 108MP snapper, however possibly the Observe 11 will, as different manufacturers are placing this sensor on cheaper and cheaper telephones too.

There’s nonetheless a little bit of time to go till the Redmi Observe 11 launch occasion kicks off, so you have obtained time to make a cup of espresso or six. Prepare for the occasion by testing what we considered the earlier Redmi gadgets:

In our Redmi Note 10 Pro assessment we heaped reward on the cellphone, notably its audio system, display screen and long-lasting battery. Our large downside was that it did not have 5G, regardless of excessive specs throughout the board elsewhere.

We additionally examined the Redmi Note 10 5G, which because the identify suggests did certainly have 5G. Our assessment was slightly extra combined, praising its 5G connectivity, long-lasting battery life and fashionable design, however its restricted digicam array, iffy display screen high quality and mediocre efficiency left rather a lot to be desired.

TechRadar’s Indian bureau additionally examined the Redmi Note 10 and Note 10 Pro Max, giving each excessive scores for related causes. We had been impressed by the show and battery lifetime of each, with the low value of each telephones making it simple to understand them, although the cameras weren’t all the time as spectacular.
