For connectivity, the Redmi 11 Prime 5G includes 5G, ac Wi-Fi, USB OTG, an IR blaster, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device will ship with Android 12 out of the box. It also has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and supports face unlocking as well.

Redmi Prime 11 4G: Specifications, pricing, and offers
The Redmi Prime 11 4G, or the Redmi Prime 11, is a watered-down version of the Redmi Prime 11 5G. It has the same display – a 6.58-inch full-HD+ IPS panel, 90Hz refresh rate, a 20.7:9 aspect ratio, 400 nits of peak brightness, and 70 percent coverage of the NTSC color gamut.
For performance, though, we get a MediaTek Helio G99 SoC with Mali-G57 MC2 GPU and up to 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM. Like the Redmi Prime 11 5G, the Redmi Prime 11 comes with up to 128GB of UFS 2.2 onboard storage, which can be expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card.
It gets the same connectivity options as the 5G model, minus 5G connectivity, and the same battery.
As for the price, the Redmi 11 Prime 4G comes in at Rs 12,999 for the base 4GB + 64GB variant and Rs 14,999 for the 6GB + 128GB variant.
Redmi A1: Specifications, pricing, and offers
The Redmi A1 gets a 6.52-inch HD+ display. The processor on the Redmi A1 is the Mediatek Helio A22 chipset and comes with 2GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 32GB eMMC 5.1 storage, which is further expandable up to 1TB. For the camera, the Redmi A1 houses an 8MP dual AI camera and a 5MP front camera. Because the Redmi A1 is targeted at feature phone users, it comes with a preinstalled radio app, a feature that has almost been rendered redundant in most smartphones. The phone has a 5000 mAh battery with 10W charging.
The Redmi A1 is available in a single, 2GB + 32GB variant for Rs 6,499. The device sells on September 9 at 4:00 PM across Mi.com, Mi Home, Amazon, and Redmi’s retail partners.
