Xiaomi announces the Redmi Note 11E and Redmi Note 11E Pro with Dimensity 700 and Snapdragon 695 chipsets
Xiaomi has released another batch of Redmi Note 11 series smartphones in China. Having only recently announced global models, the company has now brought the Redmi Note 11E and Redmi Note 11E Pro to market, which feature the Dimensity 700 and Snapdragon 695, respectively.
As Xiaomi's marketing photos show, the Redmi Note 11E Pro is the Chinese version of the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G that it released globally. Accordingly, the smartphone features a 6.67-inch and 120 Hz AMOLED display coupled with a 108 MP primary camera and a 5,000 mAh battery. Xiaomi has even released the Redmi Note 11E Pro in the same Atlantic Blue, Graphite Grey and Polar White colourways as the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G too.
The Redmi Note 11E is an altogether different beast, though. According to Xiaomi, the smartphone relies on the older Dimensity 700, a 5G SoC found in the POCO M3 Pro 5G, among other devices. Additionally, the Redmi Note 11E comes with 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, plus a 5,000 mAh battery and a 50 MP primary camera. Moreover, Xiaomi equips the smartphone with a 6.58-inch IPS display that operates at 1080p and 90 Hz.
Xiaomi will begin selling the Redmi Note 11E Pro on March 4, starting at CNY 1,699 (~US$269). In comparison, the Redmi Note 11E will not be available until March 18, albeit at a much cheaper CNY 1,199 (~US$190). It is unknown in what form Xiaomi will release the Redmi Note 11E outside China.
