Redmi India’s rebranded Note 11T 5G could be its last smartphone of 2021

Xiaomi has been on a phone-launching spree of late, starting with the announcement of the Redmi Note 11 series in China last month. One of the Note 11 series handsets — the Redmi Note 11 — soon made it to Europe as the Poco M4 Pro 5G. It looks like the same device will launch in India as the Redmi Note 11T 5G.

Earlier today, Redmi India sent out invites for the launch of a budget smartphone called the Redmi Note 11T 5G. The invite was also posted on Redmi India’s social media handles. The Redmi Note 11T 5G is likely to be positioned as the successor to the Redmi Note 10T 5G, which was launched barely four months ago.

While Redmi stopped short of divulging key specifications of the Redmi Note 11T 5G, Ishan Agrawal, a popular smartphone leaker from India, teamed with tech blog 91Mobiles to reveal that the Note 11T 5G is in fact a rebranded Poco M4 Pro 5G/Redmi Note 11. If this turns out to be accurate, we can expect the Redmi Note 11T 5G to feature roughly the same specs as the original Redmi Note 11.

These include a 6.6-inch, 90Hz IPS LCD panel and the MediaTek Dimensity 810 processor. We also expect the Redmi Note 11T 5G to pack a 5,000mAh battery with support for 33-watt fast charging. It remains to be seen whether Redmi India ships the phone with a 33-watt charger in the box, though. The camera configuration on the Redmi Note 11T 5G includes dual rear cameras and a single 16MP front-facing unit for selfies. The primary camera on the back is likely to be a 50-megapixel sensor, while the secondary 8MP camera will be paired with an ultrawide lens.

At launch, the Redmi Note 11T 5G will run MIUI 12.5 on top of Android 11. There will be multiple storage variants on offer, ranging from an entry-level 6GB+64GB variant to a top-end 8GB+128GB model. There will be three color options: Stardust White, Matte Black, and Aquamarine Blue. The Redmi Note 10T 5G could turn out to be the last major smartphone launch in India from Xiaomi for 2021, with the company likely to launch the rest of the Redmi Note 11 lineup starting early 2022.

Your next phone could get a huge 5G upgrade, thanks to AI
Qualcomm Snapdragon X80 Modem-RF chip.

It’s that time of year again when Qualcomm ushers in its next generation of 5G modem technology. Announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC ) 2024, this year’s Snapdragon X80 5G Modem-RF system is the successor to last year’s Snapdragon X75, and it builds on the 5G Advanced foundation laid last year with more raw power and new AI features.

While the Snapdragon X75 moved the needle by adding support for the latest 5G Advanced standards, we’re still in that fourth phase of 5G technology, otherwise known as 3GPP Release 18 — and most carrier networks are still catching up. So, with no new standards to embrace, Qualcomm has focused on improving the inside of the Snapdragon X80 to take even fuller advantage of these cutting-edge 5G technologies.

This tiny dongle will change 5G connectivity forever

TCL is having a busy start to 2024. First, it announced a staggering number of new smartphones and two new tablets at CES, and now it’s unveiling something else at MWC 2024 — one of the world’s first 5G dongles that takes advantage of the latest power-efficient 5G standards.

TCL Mobile’s Linkkey IK511 is a pocketable new 5G adapter that’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X35 5G Modem-RF system, which debuted last year as the first 5G modem to support the new NR-Light “RedCap” standard.

T-Mobile just set another 5G speed record

T-Mobile’s rivals may be nipping at its heels in the 5G race, but the Uncarrier is determined to stay ahead of the game. It not only boasts the fastest and most expansive 5G network in the U.S., but it’s actively working on technologies that will help it reach even greater peak speeds.

Two years ago, T-Mobile used a relatively new technique known as 5G Carrier Aggregation (5G CA) to achieve the kind of 3Gbps download speeds on midband frequencies that had previously been the exclusive domain of extremely high (and extremely short-range) mmWave technologies. Now, it’s chalked up another 5G first by taking advantage of the latest developments to shatter the traditional cap on upload speeds over sub-6GHz frequencies.
