Xiaomi is definitely trying to fill the demand and capability gap of their consumers with the debut of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 series. Rather than pressurizing on the budget, the Chinese smartphone manufacturing company is offering more and more to their customers at a reasonable budget range. But the question is, do these phones offer quality? Xiaomi released the Redmi Note 11 Pro in the UK on 1st November, which has already captured the attention of budget-conscious smartphone lovers. This article has discussed all the features of the phone.
Key features of Redmi Note 11 Pro
Not only has the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro undergone some internal updates, but it has also received a new coat of paint.
The 163.7 x 76.2 x 8.3 mm phone has a back covered in an iridescent frost-looking glass finish. It is available in Mysterious Black, Timeless Purple, Forest Green, and Milky Way Blue.
Perhaps the most visible new feature is the back-camera housing. Similar to Apple's camera housing, the Redmi Note 11 Pro's is a rounded square positioned in the phone's top-left corner.
However, it differs significantly from Apple's design, with the primary camera conspicuously encircled by a silver border and the other two lenses taking a back seat.
The phone's huge screen curls gently over the handset's left and right sides, reaching all four corners, with a selfie camera integrated into a nicely positioned hole-punch notch in the top-left corner.
Although it comes with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400), the Redmi Note 11 Pro follows the trend of high-refresh 120Hz screens. The Redmi Note 11 Pro operates at 60Hz by default; to make use of the 120Hz mode, consumers must activate it in the display area of the phone's settings menu.
With two preset color profiles and an "auto" option that changes colors depending on ambient illumination. The "original" option is the most realistic in terms of color reproduction, producing a Delta E average of 0.71.
Colors across the spectrum are almost spot on, without a single complaint from my tired eyes. The display brightness is comparable when the auto option is used, and the display supports HDR content. Additionally, since this is an AMOLED display, the contrast ratio is almost ideal at Infinity:1.
Performance, Software, and Others Features
Excellent news has come in terms of performance. The Note 11 Pro has included a MediaTek Dimensity 920 processor, which is one of the company's 6nm SoCs. The chipset has improved the overall efficiency and performance of the phone.
The MediaTek Dimensity 920 in the Redmi Note 11 Pro outperformed the previous MediaTek model according to the Geekbench 5 single- and multi-core CPU tests. Additionally, it has the ability to outscore the Samsung Exynos 2100 in the performance test but fell short of the speeds in terms of the iPhone 12.
Additionally, improved graphics rendering is planned, with the inbuilt Mali-G68 MC4 GPU.
To put this in context — competitor phones have varying maximum refresh rates and resolutions - the Mali-G68 MC4 offscreen score is comparable to the A14 Bionic. It is also quicker than Samsung's Exynos 2100.
Apart from that, the Note 11 Pro has standard flagship features such as quick 67W charging through USB-C, 50W wireless charging compatibility, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connection, and a protective layer of Gorilla Glass Victus. Additionally, it has an optical fingerprint sensor behind the display, which unlocks the phone in a flash, even when it's raining.
