The upcoming Redmi Note 11S 5G got certified by the FCC. In case you’re thinking “wait, there already is a Redmi Note 11S“, you’re right – but that “5G” suffix is important and basically makes this one a different phone.
We’ve already heard once that Redmi was working on expanding its 5G lineup with the Note 11S 5G, and now this is confirmed. Furthermore, the certification has confirmed that the Redmi Note 11S 5G is nothing but a rebranded Poco M4 Pro 5G.
Hence, the new model will have the same 6.6″ 1080×2400 90 Hz LCD screen, the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC at the helm, a 50 MP main camera flanked by an 8 MP ultrawide, a 16 MP selfie snapper, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support. The Redmi will be offered in the following RAM/storage combos: 4/64GB, 4/128GB, 6/64GB, and 6/128GB.
It’s only a matter of time before the Redmi Note 11S 5G becomes official. While you wait for that, why not read our in-depth review of the Poco M4 Pro 5G? It will give you a very accurate idea of what to expect, as it is after all the same phone by a different name.
