What you need to know

  • Xiaomi has released new teasers for its upcoming Redmi Note 11 series.
  • The teasers give us our first look at the Redmi Note 11 in "Misty Forest."
  • Xiaomi will unveil the Redmi Note 11 series in China on October 28.

Earlier this week, Xiaomi announced that the Redmi Note 11 series will debut at an event in China on October 28. The company has now posted a new teaser for the Note 11 on its Weibo page, giving us our first proper look at its design (via GSMArena).

As can be seen in the image above, the Redmi Note 11 will have a large camera bump housing a total of three sensors. On the bottom of the device will be a USB-C port, a JBL-tuned speaker, and a microphone. The top of the phone houses an IR blaster and a second speaker. We can see the volume rocker and a power button on the right side of the phone.

Rumors suggest the Redmi Note 11 will be powered by MediaTek's Dimensity 810 chipset and sport a 120Hz LCD display. Like the Redmi Note 10, the Redmi Note 11 is also rumored to support 33W wired charging speeds.

The Redmi Note 11 Pro, on the other hand, is tipped to have a Dimensity 920 chipset under its hood, paired with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. It will also have a more impressive OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Keeping the lights on will be a 5000mah battery, rumored to include support for identical 120W fast charging as the Mix 4 and 11T Pro, which are two of Xiaomi's best Android phones.

While the phones will debut in China first, they are likely to be launched in other markets such as India before the end of the year. Unlike the Chinese variants, however, the Indian Redmi Note 11 series phones are expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets.

Update, Oct 25 (06:45 ET) ― Key specs confirmed ahead of launch

Xiaomi has posted another teaser on its official Weibo page, confirming 120W fast charging for the Redmi Note 11 series. According to rumors, however, only the Pro model will include support for Xiaomi's "HyperCharge" fast charging technology.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
