Introduction

The current name for Xiaomi’s Redmi Note lineup is a bit of a convoluted one, and it’s just that we’re being educated about it. The device we are reviewing today is the recently announced international Redmi Note 11.

You should not confuse it with the Redmi Note 11 for China from last year or the Redmi Note 11 4G although it is also a 4G-only device.

It should also be differentiated from the Redmi Note 11S: essentially the same model but with a MediaTek chipset and an upgraded camera to a 108MP main snapper.

The standard Redmi Note 11 starts at $180 for a 4/64GB drive (and that’s if you missed the early bird deal) and goes up to $230 for a 6/128GB drive. That’s slightly less than the standard Redmi Note 10 from last year.

The Redmi Note 11 brings some notable improvements over its predecessor. Its Super AMOLED panel remains the same size and resolution, but it can now shoot up to 90Hz. There’s also a new 50MP main camera.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 specifications at a glance:

However, not all changes are strictly updates. This year’s Snapdragon 680 4G chipset is significantly newer than the Snapdragon 678 in the Redmi Note 10 and is therefore manufactured using a much smaller and more efficient 6nm manufacturing process (compared to 11nm). .

Its Adreno 610 chipset is an older version of the Adreno 612 inside the Snapdragon 678. The same goes for the camera DSP, which is limited to 1080p video capture. Yet another unfortunate case of a 2022 device that stopped capturing 4K video due to the removal of Snapdragon 680 and Snapdragon 695 functionality.

unpacking

The Redmi Note 11 has what can only be considered a rich retail package. The box itself is nothing special, just your standard two piece box. It’s still made of sturdy cardboard, with everything inside nice and protected.

And there really are a lot of them inside. In addition to the phone itself and the usual stuff like a Type-A to Type-C cable, a SIM ejector, and some brochures, Xiaomi has also included a 33W charger. It saturates the advertised 33W charging support on the Redmi Note 11 and is a great inclusion in the retail package. The same goes for the transparent TPU case. It feels sturdy and should hold up well. In addition, you can put it on immediately and not worry about accidents. The same goes for the included soft plastic screen protector. Although the Redmi Note 11 has Gorilla Glass 5 covering its screen, we still see the value in having that extra protection.

Many sellers also seem to offer a free pair of wired headphones with the Note 11 Pro.
