Samsung may have ditched the Note series but Xiaomi is continuing its Note series under its budget sub-brand, Redmi. Like its predecessors, the new Redmi Note 11 are affordable entry and mid-range devices that managed to packs some flagship features.
Saved for the latter, the 11 Pro 5G, 11 Pro, and the 11S are all rocking a 108 MP main snapper that employs 9-in-1 pixel binning and dual-native ISO to produce HDR and vivid color images.
The 108 MP shooter is accompanied by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle and a 2 MP macro lens camera. Interestingly, the 11 Pro and 11S get one extra sensor: a 2 MP depth sensor. Around the front, the three models have the same 16 MP front camera.
Meanwhile, the 11 touts a quad-lens set up consisting of a 50 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide, a 2 MP macro, and a 2 MP depth sensor. The front is a 13 MP selfie camera.
The range-topper in this series, i.e. Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 695, while the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11S are powered by MediaTek Helio G96, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon runs the clockwork of the 11.
All four models benefit from LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.2 storage – not the fastest in the market which is understandable. Speaking of memory, depending on the model, the new Redmi Note 11 Series is offered with up to 8 GB RAM and up to 128 GB storage, expandable up a terabyte with a microSD card.
All devices get a 5,000 mAh with the 11 Pro 5G and the 11 Pro having fast 67 W wired charging while the other two models have the 33 W variety found on the Redmi Note 10.
The 11 Pro 5G and 11 Pro also share the same display, a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED “DotDisplay” (basically, hole punch display) that offers a 120 Hz refresh rate. The 11S and 11, on the other hand, get a 90 Hz 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED DotDisplay.
