TENAA has revealed that a new budget phone from Xiaomi is on the way – the 22120RN86C. Judging by the model number, we expect to see this one get a quiet launch in December. What is it, though?
Based on the design with a fingerprint reader on the camera island, this appears to be related to the Redmi 10A and Redmi 10C. Current speculation is that it will be part of the A-line, so this should be the Xiaomi Redmi 11A.
The 10A and 10C are similar, though the A-variant is the lower end one with a Helio G25 chipset and a 13MP camera (the 10C flaunts a Snapdragon 680 and a 50MP main cam). Both are about as cheap as full-blooded Android phones go – the Redmi 10A launched in India at ₹8,500 for the base 3/32GB model (that’s $105/€105).
The Redmi 11A will likely fall in the same price category. Unfortunately, TENAA is mum on the specs for now, but we’ll keep and eye out.
