Over the last few years Xiaomi gave us some of crazy smartphones like Redmi note 8, note 9, note 9 pro, mi 11 lite, note 10, Redmi 10, note 10s, and the most popular the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro was the best midrange smartphone in 2021 but, now its successor is launched in the global market that is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro. The phone I was waiting to cover up for a long time. When it was released in China back in 2021. Now let’s review this smartphone because it has some of the new features like a new chipset, new design, new software, and new display, etc.

The CPU performance is also been upgraded from the snapdragon 690. The snapdragon 695 is based on 6NM technology so, it’s power efferent and also powerful in GPU and in CPU performance.

The snapdragon 695 is also using the adreno 619 which is 30% faster then the snapdragon 720G adreno 618 graphics, which was used in the Redmi note 10 pro. Now let’s talk about the AnTuTu benchmarks.
AnTuTu Benchmark 9
The AnTuTu benchmark shows significant upgrade in CPU performance scoring 124230 which is far greater than the snapdragon 732G. This is because it’s a 5G chipset; in the GPU performance it’s also been upgraded from the snapdragon 732G. It’s because of the new GPU the adreno 619 which is 30% faster. The memory is still the same as before scoring 69180 and the ux is also the same 109747. The total score is 30% faster than the snapdragon 732G which is 405024.

The display is same as the old one which was used in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro. Its 6.67 inches full Hd+ display with the 120 Hz refresh rate. It’s also super AMOLED which makes it sharper and brighter than the LCD displays. This display also support the HDR10+ content so watching movies on Netflix and watching TV shows and playing games will be amazingly good. It’s also protected by the gorilla glass 5 which is strong enough. There are a lot of features of this display but what makes it more powerful is its max brightness which is almost 1200nits. There will be no issues using this phone in bright sunlight thanks to whapping 1200nits of peak brightness.

The height, weight and width is the same as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro is also have the certification from IP53 which is splash and dust resistant.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro back is made of glass which is gorilla glass 5. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro comes in 3 colors which are white, gray, and blue; I personally like the blue one’s better. The fingerprint scanner is located on the home button as same as the Redmi Note 10 pro.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro can fully charge in just 42 minutes and can stay long for a day. Now let’s talk about the main highlight of this smartphone which is the camera of this phone.

|Lenses||3 (108 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP)|
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro have the triple Camera setup. The main Lens is 108mp, 8mp ultra wide and the 2mp macro sensor. I’m so much disappointed to see that there is no 4k recoding support on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro. It’s because of the snapdragon 695 because, it doesn’t support the 4k record and 4k playback. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro can only support 1080p up to 30 fps. Now let’s talk about the lenses of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro uses three lenses.
|Wide (main) lens||108 MP|
|Aperture||f/1.9 Focal length: 26 mm|
|Pixel size||0.7 micron|
|Sensor||1/1.52”, Samsung S5KHM2 (ISOCELL Plus CMOS)|
|Phase||autofocus (Dual Pixel)|
Which is the same is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro but, this time with the new processing and new chipset. But still disappointed to see there’s no 4k recoding despite it’s108Mp. There is also ultra-wide lens which is
|Ultra wide lens||8 MP|
|Aperture||f/2.2 Pixel size: 1.14 micron|
|Sensor||½.8”, Sony IMX355 (Exmor RS CMOS)|
That’s also the same sensor as what they’ve used in the redmi note 10 pro. And there is useless macro camera sensor which is
|Macro lens||2 MP|
|Aperture||f/2.4 Pixel size: 1.25 micron|
|Sensor||Omni vision OV12A10 (CMOS)|
The camera also have many features with their new MUI 13. Like Bokeh mode pro mode.
|Image resolution||4608 x 3456|
|Aperture||f/2.4 Sensor type CMOS|
|Video||1080p at 30 FPS|
It’s also the same as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro but, slightly bigger in pixel count and also with new image processing. The video is kept on 1080p at 30 fps. Its Apturter is 2.4 which is going to be a big problem when you want to take selfie’s in night time. Because it’s not wide enough to capture more light.
|USB Type||Type C|
|NFC*||Depends on the region|
The connectivity is also same as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro. I’m little disappointed to see the Wi-Fi 5 they could’ve used the Wi-Fi 6 but seeing the Wi-Fi 5. It’s not good compare with the Wi-Fi 6. It’s much slower in download and upload speeds.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro also supports the 5G connectivity. There are still some countries that don’t have the 5G yet so it’s going to depend on where you live. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro also have 3.5 mm headphone jack and also comes with the Dolby Atoms speakers which have better bass and better sound.
