Yet another Redmi Note 11 smartphone that arrived with us for a review. Its full name is Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S 5G, but its hardware bears more resemblance to the Poco M4 Pro 5G (also sold as Redmi Note 11T 5G) than the 4G-only Redmi Note 11S. The Redmi Note 11S 5G comes with a different 13MP f/2.4 selfie shooter and an extra 2MP camera on the back and we’ll do our best to establish how much of a difference those two make. The body is identical to the Redmi Note 11T 5G and M4 Pro 5G, down to the last millimeter and gram, but the Poco's back has a far more intriguing design. Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S 5G vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 11SYes, it's super hard to navigate Xiaomi's Redmi portfolio, but we'll do our best to find out if the Redmi Note 11S 5G is one of the phones to get.

With global tensions running high, Russia reported the first successful test launch of a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile, the Sarmat. On the battlefield, Ukraine said Moscow continued to mount assaults across the east, probing for weak points in Ukrainian defensive lines. Russia said it launched hundreds of missile and air attacks on targets that included concentrations of troops and vehicles. In devastated Mariupol, Ukraine said the Russians dropped heavy bombs to flatten what was left of the sprawling Azvostal steel plant, believed to be the last pocket of resistance in the city. A few thousand Ukrainian troops, by the Russians’ estimate, remained in the plant and its labyrinth of tunnels and bunkers spread out across about 11 square kilometers (4 square miles).

vivo is planning to unveil its X80 high-end family of smartphones at a special event on April 25, but it looks like an additional device will tag along on that occasion, and that is the upcoming vivo S15e, the first member of the sure-to-grow S15 lineup. Some of the S15e's specs have already been teased and confirmed by vivo itself, such as the 4,700 mAh battery with 66W charging support, and the 50 MP selfie camera. Today however we have a leak that purports to reveal the phone's full spec list. So, the vivo S15e is said to come with a 6.4" 1080x2400 AMOLED touchscreen with a 90 Hz refresh rate, and a 16 MP selfie camera - conflicting with the aforementioned info above, mind you. The triple rear camera setup consists of a 50 MP main sensor, a 13 MP ultrawide, and a 2 MP macro cam.

LVIV, Ukraine — After days of regrouping and reinforcing, the Russian military began a new and potentially climactic phase of the war in Ukraine by launching its long-feared, full-scale ground offensive to take control of the country's industrial heartland, the Donbas, Ukrainian officials said. “The Russian troops have begun the battle for the Donbas,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced in a video address. Haidai said that before advancing, Russian forces “just started leveling everything to the ground.” He said his forces retreated to regroup and keep fighting. It also would deprive Ukraine of a vital port, and complete a land bridge between Russia and the Crimean Peninsula, seized from Ukraine from 2014. Associated Press journalists Nico Maounis and Philip Crowther in Lviv, Ukraine, Adam Schreck in Vasylkiv, Ukraine, and Robert Burns in Washington contributed to this report, as did other AP staff members around the world.
