Xiaomi introduces Redmi Note 11 series: Best value for money
After unveiling its Redmi Note 11 series earlier this week, Xiaomi has finally released three new smartphones that give new meaning to the concept of "value for money."The Redmi Note 11 Pro+, Redmi Note 11 Pro, and Redmi Note 11 have been officially launched in China, but are also expected to be available in Asia and Europe.
The Redmi Note 11, the cheaper of the three, is powered by MediaTek Dimension 810 and comes with four memory options:4/128GB, 6/128GB, 8/128GG, and 8/256GB. It runs Android 11 with MIUI 12.5, just like the other two Redmi Note 11 phones.
The Vanilla Redmi Note 11 has a large 6.6-inch LCD FHD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz.On the back, the smartphone has a dual camera (50 megapixels + 8 megapixels), while on the front there is an auxiliary 16-megapixel selfie camera. The phone uses a huge 5,000mah battery that gives it a quick 33W charge.
The other two Redmi Note 11 smartphones are similar in specifications, with two exceptions that we'll highlight in due course. First, both the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ come with Mediatek's Dimension 920 chipset. They come in three variants, depending on memory size:6/128GB, 8/128GB, and 8/256GB. Both phones feature large 6.67-inch AMOLED displays with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 360Hz touch sampling rate. Both phones have a huge camera island on the back that can accommodate three cameras (108 million + 8 million + 2 million). Other notable features on the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ include a 16-megapixel selfie snapshot, 3.5mm audio jack, JBL-tuned stereo speakers, and dual SIM card support.
The main difference between the two high-end smartphones is the battery. The Redmi Note 11 Pro+ consumes 4,500mah and uses 120W quick-charging technology to recharge the battery in just 15 minutes. The Redmi Note 11, on the other hand, has a larger 5,160mah battery, but only 67W for quick charging. We should also mention that neither phone supports microSD cards.
In terms of price, a regular Redmi Note 11 sells for the equivalent of $185 in China, while the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ cost $265 and $310, respectively. We suspect these prices will remain in place when phones arrive in Europe, but they should still offer great value.
