Xiaomi launches the Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G and Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G in India
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 11 lineup can be considered its flagship lineup for the globe, with enough Redmi Notes sold every year to eclipse all their other lineups and even other OEMs. Xiaomi also has been adding a whole bunch of models to the lineup, serving a larger range of needs and budgets than what the original Redmi Note lineup started off to serve. The company is now adding two devices to its lineup in India with the launch of the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G and Redmi Note 11 Pro (4G).

The Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G and the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G are similar devices that largely share the same build. The only differences between the phones arise because of 5G and its ancillary requirements. The 4G device uses a MediaTek Helio G96 SoC, while the Pro Plus 5G uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC with the X51 5G modem. The 4G device gets a lower storage variant to give it a lower starting price, while the Pro Plus 5G gets 256GB of storage as an option. The Pro Plus loses out on the 2MP depth camera to better accommodate 5G related hardware, but you aren’t losing out on too much.
Common highlights of the device include a nice 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 67W of fast wired charging for their 5,000mAh battery along with an included 67W charger in the box, and a 108MP primary rear camera.
If the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G [India] looks familiar to you, that’s because it is. It’s practically the same underlying phone that has been released/will be released with these different names in the relevant regions:
- Codename “peux”:
- Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G [India]
- POCO X4 Pro 5G [India]
- Codename “veux”:
- Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G [Global]
- POCO X4 Pro 5G [Global]
- Redmi Note 11E Pro [China]
The Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G is a little easier to follow. The device has the codename “vida” for India, while it is “viva” for Global region. The marketing name has stayed the same so far.
