Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ will reportedly launch in India as Xiaomi-branded smartphones. There is no mention about the rebranding of the vanilla Redmi Note 11 5G. Furthermore, there is no information as of now about the launch date of these smartphones in India. The two smartphones were launched in China earlier this week along with the Redmi Note 11 5G. The Redmi Note 11 series is powered by MediaTek chipsets paired with up to 8GB of RAM. All three smartphones are also IP53 rated for dust- and water-resistance.
As per tipster Kacper Skrzypek (@kacskrz), Redmi Note 11 Pro will launch in India as the Xiaomi 11i, while the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ will come to India as the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge. The tipster also mentions that the Redmi smartphones won't be rebranded for the Global markets.
However, the vanilla Redmi Note 11 5G was missing from the tweet, hinting that the smartphone may launch as a Redmi smartphone or may not launch in India altogether. Since this information is not confirmed by Xiaomi, it should be taken with a pinch of salt. A previous report suggests that the Redmi Note 11 5G may be rebranded as Poco M4 Pro 5G on November 9.
