What you need to know

  • Xiaomi has launched two new Redmi Note 11 series phones in India.
  • The Redmi Note 11 features a Snapdragon 680 chipset, a 50MP main camera, and 33W fast charging.
  • Redmi Note 11S, on the other hand, comes with a 108MP main camera and MediaTek's Helio G96 chipset.

Last month, Xiaomi introduced the global variants of its Redmi Note 11 series phones. The vanilla Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S have now been launched in India to challenge the best budget Android phones.

The Redmi Note 11 has a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen featuring a 90Hz refresh rate. Powering the budget phone is Qualcomm's 6nm Snapdragon 680 chipset, paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage.

On the back of the phone is a quad-lens camera system with a 50MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. There's a 13MP camera on the front for selfies and video calls.

The Redmi Note 11 also packs a large 5,000mAh battery with support for 33W wired charging. Xiaomi claims it only takes 60 minutes for the phone to be fully charged. Other notable specs include stereo speakers, a built-in IR blaster, and an IP53 rating for dust and splash resistance.

The Redmi Note 11S isn't very different from the vanilla Note 11, but there are a few key differences. It is powered by MediaTek's Helio G96 chipset and comes with a 108MP main sensor. The Redmi Note 11S also has a more impressive 16MP selfie camera, housed within the centered hole-punch cutout at the top of the screen. Both the phones run MIUI 13 on top of Android 11.

The Redmi Note 11S has been priced at ₹16,499 (about $220) for the 6GB/64GB version, ₹17,499 (about $234) for the 6GB/128GB version, and ₹18,499 (about $248) for the 8GB/128GB version. Xiaomi's vanilla Redmi Note 11 is priced at ₹13,499 (about $180) for the 4GB/64GB version, ₹14,499 (about $194) for the 6GB/64GB version, and ₹15,999 (about $214) for the 6GB/128GB version. While the Redmi Note 11 will be available to purchase from February 11, the Redmi Note 11S is slated to go on sale in the country from February 16.

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
