Xiaomi has a lot of unreleased smartphones currently in the pipeline, not the least of which is the entire Redmi K60 and Xiaomi 13 series. However, the recent TENAA listing all confirm the existence of another affordable Redmi smartphone. Certified ‘22120RN86C’, the phone is believed to be the Redmi 11A, although only the Redmi 10A was released earlier this year.
As the images below highlight, the Redmi 11A has a different rear design than its predecessor, with two large camera sensors flanked by a single LED flash unit and a rear fingerprint sensor. While the sensor forms part of the camera housing, Xiaomi seems to have focused on it, making it easier for anyone to access. Plus, the back panel has a textured finish that’s supposed to break the monotony of a solid dark gray.
Moreover, the same listing says that Xiaomi has built the Redmi 11A around a 6.7-inch display and 720p IPS, along with a 5,000 mAh battery and up to 8 GB of RAM. Similarly, TENAA reports that the Redmi 11A comes with four storage configurations of up to 256GB, as well as an unnamed chipset with 8 CPU cores clocked at 2GHz. Although Xiaomi hasn’t started teasing the Redmi 11A yet, the “2212” in its model number indicates that the company plans to announce the phone next month, albeit perhaps only in China.
