All About The Latest Xiaomi Redmi Note Series: Redmi Note 11 Pro
As the sub-brand of Xiaomi, Redmi is known for its budget-friendly smartphones. Despite the lower price point, the quality of its products needs no questioning, for it is leading other smartphones in the same catalog. Even when compared to Xiaomi’s flagship smartphones, the differences can barely be felt.
First launched in February 2022, Redmi Note 11 is still fresh out of the oven. This newest addition to the Redmi Note line comes in 6 versions, including its S, Pro, and 5G edition. The main differences between each version lie in their chipsets and charging capabilities.
Having said that, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 11 Pro and Pro 5G sit at the top of the ladder as the most powerful edition of their line. Curious about what makes them different and what they have to offer? Here we have concluded all the must-known facts about Redmi’s current most powerful smartphone.
What’s in the box?
Before we get into specifics, let’s find out what you’ll get with your purchase. Redmi Note 11 Pro comes in a white paper box with a 67W adapter and a 6A USB cable. You will also find a complimentary screen protector and a silicone transparent case in the box, along with the usual pack of paperwork.
Let’s cover the basics
Redmi Note 11 Pro comes with a Super AMOLED display, 164 x 76 mm screen, and 1080p resolution. Equipped with Bluetooth’s 5.1 version, this phone is optimized for a smooth connection to your favorite Bluetooth speaker. Besides the Snapdragon 695 chipset to support the 5G connection, the Pro 5G edition also comes with more memory options than the basic Pro.
This smartphone comes in Graphite Gray, Polar White, Atlantic Blue (Pro 5G model), and Star Blue (basic Pro model). Redmi Note 11 Pro is equipped with a Gorilla Glass 5 screen and a matte finish to its rear and flat-back frame. Despite it not being fully-water resistant, you can stop worrying about your phone if you get caught in the rain, as it can endure a 5-minute exposure under running water.
A 3.5mm jack along with its first speaker and microphone are included at the top frame of this phone. Meanwhile, another speaker is located on the bottom frame next to a USB-C port. The hybrid SIM slot not only allows you to put in two SIM cards, but a micro-SD on one side for extra storage.
Less charging time with 67W fast charging
When you purchase a Redmi Note 11 Pro, not only did you choose the latest budget phone in the market, but you are also choosing less hassle. Thanks to its 5000 mAh battery, you can enjoy up to 13 hours browsing or 19 hours of your favorite series. Additionally, with its 67W fast charging feature, you will only have to wait 45 minutes for a fully charged battery.
It’s the inside that counts
Redmi Note 11 Pro runs on MIUI 13 (the remix version of Android ROM, courtesy of Xiaomi), with Android 11 as its base. Despite missing some of Android 12’s features, the MIUI 13 protects your Redmi Note 11 with its fingerprint scanner and 2D face recognition to unlock your phone. Furthermore, in favor of ultimate protection for your device, this smartphone also offers a security app to scan malware, manage your data usage, detect your battery behavior, and many other useful functions.
Furthermore, more themes are available for your every mood with MIUI 13. The newly added Protective Mark in the Gallery app allows you to quickly add a watermark on your pictures for maximum ease and protection when you want to share your photos online.
Capture every moment as they are
Redmi Note 11 Pro features a flagship quality camera without compromising its budget-friendly price. Using a triple camera setup, it sports a 108MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide shooter, a 2MP macro eye, along with its 16MP selfie camera. This setup allows you to capture every small bit of your life and relive it exactly the way you went through it.
Furthermore, the basic Pro version includes a depth feature to further assist your photo-taking sessions. While the Pro and Pro 5G edition doesn’t support a 4K video capturing option, its Pro+ version (released in late 2021) does. Despite so, the camera still proves to do a good job capturing night-time videos.
All in all, compared to its siblings, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 11 Pro or Pro 5G is your best option if you are looking for a budget-friendly smartphone. Although there is not much improvement from its predecessor, Redmi Note 10, it is still a well-worthy smartphone to buy.
