Xiaomi unveils Redmi Note 11 smartphones

Xiaomi has announced the next addition to its budget Redmi smartphone range, the Note 11 series, which includes a 5G model.

The company has chosen what it describes as a “trendy flat-edge body” design, somewhat resembling Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.

The line features four models, and most of the hardware specs are shared between at least two of them.

Starting prices for the Redmi Note 11 range are as follows:

  • Redmi Note 11 — from $179 excl. VAT (R2,719)
  • Redmi Note 11S — from $249 excl. VAT (R3,783)
  • Redmi Note 11 Pro — from $299 excl. VAT  (R4,542)
  • Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G — from $329 excl. VAT (R4,998)

The top of the range model is the Note 11 Pro 5G which has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor with support for 5G.

The Note 11 Pro 5G has the same 6.67-inch FHD+ display as the standard Note 11 Pro, and both also offer a 120Hz refresh rate.

While identical to the 5G model in terms of design, the standard Note 11 Pro features a MediaTek Helio G96 processor.

The base model is the Note 11, and it features a Snapdragon 680 processor and the same 6.43-inch FHD+ display as the Note 11S.

The Note 11 and 11S both have 90Hz refresh rates.

All smartphones in the new range pack a 5,000mAh battery, but the Pro variations support 67W fast charging, while the Note 11 and Note 11S only support 33W fast charging.

The Note 11 S, Pro, and Pro 5G feature a 108MP rear camera, while the standard Note 11 has a 50MP lens.

All models have a hole-punch selfie camera, but the Note 11’s lens is 13MP while the rest of the range has 16MP front cameras.

For biometrics, all models come with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

The Redmi Note 11 and 11S will be released in January, while the Pro variations will be available in February.
