Xiaomi has launched a few 5G-enabled 5G devices in the country including Redmi Note 10T 5G, Redmi Note 11T 5G, and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G. However, all these devices belong to the Note series and were priced above Rs 15,000 in the country. Since, the upcoming Redmi 11 Prime is a number series smartphone, we can expect to be cheaper compared to other 5G smartphones from the brand.

If the Redmi 11 Prime turns out to be a Redmi Note 11E rebrand, it will be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor. In that case, we would see another Redmi smartphone with 90Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ resolution. The smartphone might offer a 50MP dual-camera setup and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. We can also expect Redmi 11 Prime 5G to come equipped with a 5000 mAh battery and 18W fast charging support.
