The Redmi 11 Prime 5G is all set for launch in India on September 6, 2022, from 12 PM onwards. This has been confirmed by the company that has put up a microsite dedicated to the launch of the smartphone. The microsite also has some key aspects of the phone to share though much of the information contained therein is rather cryptic.
For instance, the phone is revealed to come with a prime display, prime camera, prime design, prime performance, prime power, and prime connectivity. No wonder, all of the prime bits mentioned on the site are made to rhyme with the phone’s name, that is Redmi 11 Prime 5G. The microsite however did confirm the phone will have a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor at its core with a 5,000 mAh battery providing the juice. It is not known what the secondary camera is going to be like. There is going to be twin SIM card slots onboard with each supporting 5G connectivity. The phone is going to be available via Amazon.
From the image of the phone as shared by the company, the Redmi 11 Prime 5G is shown to have a waterdrop notch at the front. Further, there is the rectangular camera module at the rear comprising of twin camera lenses and an elongated LED flash. The image also reveals the lack of a fingerprint sensor, which likely is an indication of the same being embedded within the Power button. The phone is shown done up in a shade of mint green. The Redmi 11 Prime 5G is going to succeed the Redmi 10 Prime that the company introduced last year.
Rumor also has it that the Redmi 11 Prime 5G will come with 18W fast charging support which should be a decent offering given its mid-range standing. Meanwhile, noted tipster Yogesh Brar opines that the Redmi 11 Prime slated for launch in India is in all possibility the Redmi Note 11E that Xiaomi had introduced in China in March this year. Many also claim the Redmi 11 Prime 5G is in reality the rebranded Poco M4 5G.
Key specs of the Redmi Note 11E include 6.58-inch IPS LCD panel having a 90 Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ display resolution, a 50 MP + 50 MP rear camera setup, a 5 MP front shooter, 5000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support, and a MediaTek 700 SoC + Mali-G57 MC2 GPU combo for efficient processing.
The Redmi 11 Prime 5G was seen on the IMEI database earlier where it was identified by model number 19191. The phone also carried the code name Light.
