The official teaser shows the back of the Redmi Note 11S, which reveals its quad rear camera setup, that appears to have a 108-megapixel primary sensor. Interestingly, the new smartphone shows no 5G branding on its back, so we are unsure whether Redmi have decided to buck the trend for budget phones that come complete with 5G connectivity and stick with 4G instead.

Redmi hasn’t confirmed the Note 11S’s specifications, but the phone has been subject to the rumor mill for some time now. Past rumors suggest the camera set-up will consist of the 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HM2 primary sensor, along with an 8MP Sony IMX355 sensor with an ultra-wide lens, a 2MP Omnivision OV2A macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. It’s also tipped to come with an AMOLED display.
After Xiaomi started teasing the launch of the Redmi Note 11S in India earlier this month some alleged renders appeared. If these are to be believed, we can see that the phone may come with a centrally aligned hole-punch camera at the front.(opens in new tab)
The new camera phone, which recently appeared on certification listings including Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and Thailand's National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) is said to come in three configurations available: 6GB RAM/64GB storage, model alongside a 6GB RAM /128GB storage and an 8GB/128GB storage version.
