Not only bringing the Redmi Note 11 Pro Series which has two models, 5G and 4G to the global market, Xiaomi also offers the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S. Yes! The last two smartphones mentioned certainly aim to answer consumer demands who want smaller, lighter and cheaper devices.

Even so, Xiaomi has also slipped some of the features in the Pro Series into the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S. Featuring a 6.43-inch AMOLED display, both smartphones are a few millimeters shorter and narrower, and more than 20 grams lighter.

Both the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S still enjoy 1080p+ (20:9) resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate, although that’s a lot more than the Note 10 and 10S launched last year. The touch sampling rate was doubled (180Hz) and Xiaomi managed to increase the typical brightness to 700 nits (up from 450 nits).

This smartphone screen has also been protected with Gorilla Glass 3 protection and IP53 certification (splash-resistant). The camera is a much bigger upgrade. The Redmi Note 11S gets the same 108 MP ISOCELL HM2 as the Pro – a 1/1.53” sensor with 0.7m pixels and 9-in-1 binning (for 2.1m pixels).

The regular Note 11 gets a 50 MP sensor instead. Both pack a 118° ultra-wide camera with an 8 MP sensor, a 2 MP macro camera, and a 2 MP depth sensor. Meanwhile, for the kitchen, it uses a sequel chipset from last year, the S model is powered by Helio G96 and the vanilla model is powered by Snapdragon 680.

In terms of software, these two smartphones have been equipped with the MIUI 13 interface based on Android 11. Redmi Note 11 starts from 4GB/64GB memory options and reaches 6GB/128GB. Meanwhile, the Note 11S starts at 6GB/64GB and goes up to 8GB/128GB.

Unlike the Pro, both smartphones have a dedicated slot for a microSD card in the dual-SIM tray. Both have side-mounted fingerprint readers and can also use the front camera to unlock biometrics – 16 MP for the S model and 13 MP for the Note 11.

Xiaomi promises that in some regions or countries where these two smartphones are marketed, the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S will have IR Blaster and NFC. Xiaomi also equips this smartphone with support for dual speakers and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Note 11 and 11S are powered by a 5,000 mAh battery, the same capacity as last year’s model. However, Xiaomi managed to optimize 33W fast charging, so now 100% is reached in 58 minutes (Note 10 takes 74 minutes to fully charge).

Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S will be available evenly next month. The Redmi Note 11 will start at US$ 180 (Rp 2.6 million) for the 4 GB/64 GB model and will increase to US$ 230 (Rp 3.3 million) for the 6 GB/128 GB model, or above.

Redmi Note 11S will be sold starting at US$ 250 (Rp 3.5 million) for the 6 GB/64 GB variant and increases to US$ 300 (Rp 4.3 million) for the 8 GB/128 GB variant. Will Xiaomi soon bring these two smartphones to the Indonesian market? Let’s just wait.
