The Redmi Note 12 series has been released by Xiaomi, but the company is not yet done with the Redmi Note 11 series. The rumors of a mouthful called Redmi Note 11 Pro (2023) have been doing the rounds for a while. Now more evidence helps us “assemble” the figure of the device. The “2023” smartphone was certified by the Google Play Console with the Snapdragon 712. That caused some commotion, after all, this is a very old chipset. Now a Geekbench result clears things up a bit.

If this sounds like a disappointment, should we say things will get worse – the phone runs on Android 11.
The listing suggests that the device that Geekbench ran on is running Android 11. Maybe it will launch with Android 12, but history tells us otherwise. So Xiaomi will have to update it shortly after launch. We don’t know exactly when Xiaomi will launch the phone, but we expect it to happen soon. Regardless of the Android version, the device comes with MIUI 13.
As we said above, this Redmi Note 11 Pro (2023) looks and performs like the Redmi Note 10 Pro. So we can only assume that this is a re-release for the 2020 smartphone. The reason? It’s impossible to say, but it won’t be the first time. The company launched the Redmi Note 8 (2021) last year, and it was
