Next-gen Xiaomi flagships inch closer to a global launch with new Indian certifications
The Note 11 Pro and Note 11 Pro+ are the latest top-end devices Redmi has to offer. They have launched with 120Hz AMOLED displays, high-res rear cameras and 67W to 120W charging. Then again, they are not available in many regions at present. Now, however, it seems the Xiaomi brand might be about to change that.
The OEM has reportedly certified devices called the 21091116UI and 21091116I with the BIS and with the TÜV Rheinland group. These model numbers have been seen before, just without their novel 'I' suffixes, and are linked with the Note 11 Pro and 11 Pro+ respectively.
Therefore, it is now thought that these new BIS listings correspond to Indian-market SKUs for the same 2 phones, and that they will accordingly debut soon in their new market. Furthermore, they have appeared in these new leaks alongside another new model number: 2201122G.
This one may not be a Redmi phone, but one direct from Xiaomi instead: none other than the rumored successor to the Mi 11 Pro. Given its own G suffix, it seems this one might make it outside of China this time.
One might wonder where its vanilla 12 counterpart got to in these terms; then again, one can be slightly more certain that the Note 11 Pro and Pro+ might launch as the Xiaomi 11i and Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge instead there, even though the vanilla 11 might become the "Note 11T" in India.
