Xiaomi is reportedly planning to launch its latest Redmi Note 11 series in the global markets with a new design. Vietnamese news website The Pixel suggests that the new smartphones could arrive in the first quarter of 2022. The Redmi Note 11 series, which includes a standard model, a Note 11 Pro, and Note 11 Pro+ version, recently made its debut in China.

The global variant will reportedly pack Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets, instead of the MediaTek Dimensity processors found on the Chinese models. We could also see a different design on the back panel of Redmi Note 11 series, as per leaks from a Vietnamese portal, the Pixel.

Xiaomi going for Qualcomm chipsets in the global market will not be surprising given that most past Redmi Note series have been powered by Snapdragon processors. The Redmi Note 8 Pro was one of the few devices that came with the MediaTek processor back in 2019, and it was powered by the MediaTek G90T chipset.

Meanwhile, another tipster with @chunvn8888 handle on Twitter claims that it could be due to a shortage in supply of the MediaTek chipsets at Xiaomi’s facility. The tipster also suggests that the new phones could be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 778G Plus and Snapdragon 695 processors. It should be noted that chip supply shortage is currently plaguing most companies, and has impacted vendor shipments overall.
