Redmi is all set to launch its new budget phone, Redmi Note 11 SE in India this month. Surprisingly, the company revealed everything about the phone except its price before the launch. By going through the specs, the phone seems to be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 10S that launched last year. While we have lost count of how many smartphones Redmi has launched in the Note 11 series, this is going to be the latest one. The phone was spotted in July this year and was expected to launch soon. Now that the wait for the launch is almost over, here’s what to expect from the Redmi Note 11 SE smartphone.
Redmi Note 11 SE Launch Date, Event Time, Where to Watch It Live
The Redmi Note 11 SE launch date was announced two days ago in a surprising manner. The company has set the smartphone launch date to be August 26. Xiaomi will launch the device in India via Flipkart. A teaser page on Flipkart has confirmed the same. The company might not be doing any launch event for the same and launch the product directly on the e-commerce platform.
