Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 11 series last month in its home country. The lineup consists of three devices— Redmi Note 11, Note 11 Pro, and Note 11 Pro+. Reportedly, the family is soon going to debut in global markets including Vietnam. However, the design and other specs will differ for these devices outside China.

Starting with the processors, the Chinese variant of the Redmi Note 11 draws power from Dimensity 810. While the Note 11 Pro and Pro+ power Dimensity 920 SoC. But, as per the reports, Vietnam and other global models of the smartphone will equip a Snapdragon chipset. Though these models are also expected to visit China, but with different monikers.
It is still not clear why Xiaomi has decided to use Snapdragon SoCs instead of the default chipset for the global models. Some leaks claim that the shortage of Dimensity chipset stocked in Xiaomi’s facility could be the reason.
Additionally, the same leaks suggest that unknown Snapdragon Chipsets under the Redmi Note 11 Global edition could be the Snapdragon 778G Plus, and Snapdragon 695. But these are just assumptions at the moment. Also, the variants are expected to debut in the first quarter of 2022.
There’s another leak again which states that the Redmi Note 11 is expected to arrive as the Redmi Note 11T 5G in India. Whereas, the Note 11 Pro and Pro+ are expected to be renamed as Xiaomi 11i and Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge. The presence of Snapdragon SoC for the Indian variant remains to be a secret.
