The latest news has delivered more information about the Redmi Note 11 series. Reputedly, Xiaomi is looking to bring its HyperCharge technology to the likes of the Redmi Note 11 Pro, which the 11T Pro already supports. The Redmi Note 11 Pro may have decent battery life too with a 5,100 mAh capacity and a frugal Snapdragon 778 SoC.
The Redmi Note 11 series may not arrive until year, but Digital Chat Station continues to leak details about next-generation Redmi Note handsets. Last month, the renowned leaker claimed that the Redmi Note 11 series would match the Mi 11 series with 67 W fast charging, which the Redmi Note 10 Pro already supports. By contrast, Xiaomi capped the Redmi Note 10 at 33 W.
Now, they claim that the next flagship Redmi Note smartphone could support upwards of 120 W charging. For context, Xiaomi markets its 120 W technology as HyperCharge, also available on the 11T Pro. Unsurprisingly, the 11T Pro charges incredibly quickly. While it, the Redmi Note 10 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro all have 5,000 mAh batteries, the 11T Pro can fully recharge in under 20 minutes. In comparison, the Redmi Note 10 takes an advertised 1:14 hours to recharge from 0-100%, which the Redmi Note 10 Pro cuts to 42 minutes.
The Redmi Note 11 series is expected to feature 5,100 mAh batteries, too. Hence, a future flagship Redmi Note handset, probably the Redmi Note 11 Pro, should launch with similarly impressive advertised recharge times. Presumably, the device will exceed 70% charge within 10 minutes, as the 11T Pro does.
It also believes that Xiaomi will equip the Redmi Note 11 Pro with a Snapdragon 778G SoC. The 6 nm chip helped the Galaxy A52s yield impressive runtimes during our battery life tests with its 4,500 mAh, so the Redmi Note 11 Pro should last even longer with a 600 mAh larger capacity.
Redmi K50 lineup is still wrapped around mystery and there’s little to no information about it. Whereas, according to a renowned Weibo tipster, we have some of the key specs of the top-tier member of the family, the K50 Pro+.
It appears that Xiaomi is readying a Pro+ variant of the K50 once again and its core specs are seemingly revealed. We can expect the powerful and still unannounced Snapdragon 898 chipset powering up the handset while a 5,000 mAh battery would keep the lights on. Speaking of lights, the display is rumored to be curved with a centered punch-hole for the selfie camera and under-display fingerprint reader. Or at least that’s what we were able to gather from the broken Google translation of the Weibo post.
On the camera front, we should see a 108MP main camera coupled with a periscope telephoto shooter. If those specs are accurate, the Pro+ would be a full-fledged flagship and not just a flagship killer.
The Snapdragon 898 part leads us to believe the K50 Pro+ won’t be coming around for this year’s holiday season, though. Since Qualcomm usually announces its flagship SoCs towards the end of each year and the first devices running the company’s latest and greatest come out at the beginning of the next one. So it’s easy to assume that the Redmi K50 Pro+ will be out sometime at the beginning of 2022.
