Xiaomi has recently unveiled the Redmi NOTE 11 Pro+ 5G and the Redmi 10 5G which are powered by Mediatek’s Dimensity 920 and Dimensity 700 processors. The Redmi NOTE 11 Pro+ 5G is immediately available in Kenya starting at KES 45,999. It is a premium device competing with the likes of the Vivo V23 5G or the OPPO Reno6 5G but priced more affordably. The two mentioned devices cost KES 60,000.

It is the first Redmi NOTE device to feature Xiaomi’s crazy 120W fast charging which should charge the 4500mAh battery in a mere 15mins from zero. The charger is included in the box. Xiaomi says the device also ensures charging safety and stability with more than 40 safety features, as well as attaining TÜV Rheinland’s Safe Fast-Charge System certification.

The Redmi 10 5G on the other hand is an addition to the Redmi 10 lineup offering 5G at a more affordable price range. It is the first in the series to offer 5G support thanks to the new Dimensity 700 chip. It has a 5000mAh battery and comes with a 22.5w charger in the box, though it charges at 18W. The phone is set to be available in Kenya from May with pricing expected to start at KES 23,000.
