6. Redmi Note 11 Pro 2023
Redmi Note 10 Pro
We expected the Redmi Note 11 Pro 2023 to go official in October but it didn’t happen. Now, we think it may release in November.
As per certifications and leaks, this smartphone will be nothing but a rebadged Redmi Note 10 Pro (aka Redmi Note 10 Pro Max) from 2021. It may be only sold in Southeast Asia and Europe as there’s only a ‘Global’ variant of it.
It will offer features like a 6.67-inch FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G SoC, 108MP (wide) + 8MP (ultra-wide) + 5MP (telemacro) + 2MP (depth) quad-camera setup, 16MP selfie camera, dual stereo speakers, side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 5,020mAh battery, and 33W fast charging support.
Interestingly, the phone may boot Android 11 though the original Redmi Note 10 Pro has received the Android 12 update.
7. Poco X5 5G
Poco X4 Pro 5G
The Poco X5 5G could make its debut in November. If not, at least its Chinese variant bearing the Redmi branding might go official. Because the model numbers of this handset suggest an October release but the said month has already passed away.
Unfortunately, we don’t have much information on it. The product is said to be marketed as a budget gaming smartphone.
It is said to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC and a 120Hz display (LCD).
8. Xiaomi 13 Series
Xiaomi 13 Pro
Two Xiaomi 13 series models, namely Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro, could debut in November. They are expected to house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which is also scheduled to go official this month.
The vanilla model is said to come with a 6.38-inch FHD+ display, 50MP main camera, and 67W fast charging support. On the other hand, a lot more has leaked about the Pro variant.
The Xiaomi 13 Pro is tipped to arrive with a 6.7-inch QHD+ LTPO E6 AMOLED display, 50MP (1-inch Sony IMX989 sensor) + 50MP (ultra-wide) + 50MP (telephoto) triple camera array, 32MP selfie camera, Leica image processing, Surge C2/P2 chips, Android 13-based MIUI 14, 4,800mAh battery, and 120W fast charging support.
If you are wondering about the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, it will most probably release next year.
9. Motorola Moto X40
The Motorola Moto X40 could release in November as one of the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phones, other than the Xiaomi 13 series. Just like the latter, the exact launch date is unknown.
The device is expected to arrive with a 10-bit 6.67-inch FHD+ 165Hz curved display, LPDDR5x RAM, 50MP + 50MP + 12MP triple camera system, in-screen fingerprint sensor, 5,000mAh battery, and 68W fast charging support.
