Xiaomi Redmi 11A: Design and specifications leak for upcoming budget smartphone
Xiaomi has plenty of unreleased smartphones in the pipeline currently, not least the entire Redmi K60 and Xiaomi 13 series. However, a recent TENAA listing all but confirms the existence of another affordable Redmi smartphone. Certified as ‘22120RN86C’, the handset is believed to be the Redmi 11A, despite the release of the Redmi 10A only earlier this year.
As the images below highlight, the Redmi 11A has a different back design than its predecessor, with two large camera sensors flanked by a single LED flash module and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. While the sensor forms part of the camera housing, Xiaomi appears to have centred it, which should make it easy for anyone to access. Additionally, the back panel has a textured finish, presumably to break the monotony of a solid dark grey hue.
Moreover, the same listing states that Xiaomi has built the Redmi 11A around a 6.7-inch and 720p IPS display, along with a 5,000 mAh battery and up to 8 GB of RAM. Similarly, TENAA reports that the Redmi 11A comes in four storage configurations up to 256 GB, as well as an unnamed chipset that has 8 CPU cores clocked at 2 GHz. Although Xiaomi has not started teasing the Redmi 11A yet, ‘2212’ in its model number suggests that the company plans to announce the handset next month, albeit perhaps only in China.
