Xiaomi releases Kernel Sources for Redmi Note 11 Pro


Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 11 series a couple of days back in China. The Redmi Note 11 series consists of three handsets – Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11 Pro, and Redmi Note 11 Pro+.  Now, within a couple of days of the launch, Xiaomi has released Android 11 based Kernel Sources for the Redmi Note 11 Pro (codename pissarro).

The Redmi Note 11 is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 810 processor, while the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Pro+ are powered by MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC.

Even though the source codes may not be useful for normal users, they would be helpful for developers and tinkerers who want to get the most out of their devices. The kernel source codes help developers build custom kernels and custom ROMs for the handset. You can head over to GitHub to take a look at the Kernel Sources.

It would be interesting to see how good the custom ROM support will be for the Redmi Note 11 Pro, considering it sports a MediaTek processor. To those unaware, Snapdragon-powered devices usually get better development support compared to the ones that are powered by MediaTek processors.

A report from last week revealed that Xiaomi might launch the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ as Xiaomi 11i and Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge, respectively in the Indian market.
