The upcoming Indian version of the Redmi Note 11SE will closely resemble the Redmi Note 10S, and is powered by the Helio G95 chip, and comes in three memory configurations – 6GB+64GB, 6GB+128GB, and 8GB+128GB.

What is surprising is that Xiaomi is relaunching a device that is already doing well in India in the budget segment, without tweaking the device’s design and specs a lot. It seems that even Xiaomi is using the same product shots and marketing material to market the upcoming Redmi Note 11SE.

All SEt for the new performer on the block. 😎

The stunning #RedmiNote11SE arrives on 26th August.
