Xiaomi launched on Wednesday night (6) its new line of Redmi smartphones in Brazil, as well as a series of connected devices for smart homes.
The cell phones were already available in the international market since January 26th. Starting today, four of them will be officially marketed here: Redmi Note 11, Note 11S, Note 11 Pro and Note 11 Pro 5G. All are focused on the mid-range segment (not so basic, not top of the line devices). Prices start at R$ 1,599.99 (promotional price).
“Many users were looking for us for a second smartphone, wanting to separate professional numbers from personal, for fear of theft”, says Luciano Barbosa, product manager at Xiaomi in Brazil.
With that in mind, the new line phones allow you to hide apps with biometrics. In practice, different fingerprints can be registered to show different application interfaces and, thus, hide certain programs from the system. “Focus in 2022 is on greater security after increasing thefts targeting banking apps.”
They are already on sale on the brand’s official website and in the brand’s seven physical stores, in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba and Salvador.
The presentation of the devices took place at an event at Espaço das Américas, in São Paulo. The public was also able to get their first impressions of the smart home ecosystem.
