Xiaomi is already planning Redmi Note 12 smartphones
Xiaomi introduced the Redmi Note 11 series in Germany in recent weeks. First there were four new models, recently three more smartphones were added. Although the phones are new to us, they have been around in China for many months. The smartphones were unveiled there in October 2021.

Ultimately, you could benefit from the new strategy if you simply buy an “old” model instead of the new generation, which isn’t old at all because it hasn’t even been on the market for six months. This is where the price spiral should start. In any case, we will keep an eye on the market.
