Xiaomi has just unveiled three new smartphones in its Redmi Note 11 range, which already included 4 other references. The most high-end smartphone, the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G, is particularly interesting because of its ultra-fast charging.
A few weeks after introducing the Redmi Note 11, Note 11S, Note 11 Pro and Note 11 Pro 5G in Europe, Xiaomi has finally unveiled the other models in its range: the Redmi Note 11S 5G, Note 11 Pro+ 5G and Note 10 5G. These aim to make 5G accessible to allbut the most powerful version above all has the advantage of offering a characteristic usually reserved for the most high-end models: 120 W fast charging.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G recharges in just 15 minutes
The Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G is not very different from the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G that Xiaomi launched in France this morning from 339 euros. Indeed, we find at the back a photo configuration with three cameras with a 108 MP main sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 2 MP macro sensor. The smartphone is also equipped with a 6.7-inch 120Hz FHD+ AMOLED display with a brightness of 1200 nits, and stereo speakers.
The main differences are in the processor, battery, fast charging and video capture. The Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G is significantly more powerful than the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G thanks to a Dimensity 920 chip from MediaTek.
In addition, the smartphone is powered by a 4500mAh batterywhich has the particularity of being compatible with the 120W wired fast charging. As a reminder, this feature usually reserved for high-end smartphones such as the Xiaomi 12 Pro will allow you to recharge the device in just 15 minutes, a record for a mid-range smartphone. Finally, the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G is finally capable ofrecord videos in 4K at 30 FPSwhile the other smartphones in the range must be satisfied with a Full HD definition at 30 FPS.
The Redmi Note 11S 5G stands out from the classic Redmi Note 11S
Although its name suggests that it is in fact only a 5G version of the Redmi Note 11S, it is not. Indeed, the Redmi Note 11S 5G replaces the MediaTek Helio G96 processor with a MediaTek Dimensity 810 chip more powerful, but is above all different in terms of the photo. Indeed, the smartphone abandons the 108 MP sensor for the 50 MP sensor of the classic Redmi Note 11.
It is accompanied by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor as well as a 2 MP macro sensor. The fourth 2 MP depth sensor is also missing. However, we always find a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 5000mAh battery and the fast charging 33W Pro.
The Redmi 10 5G makes 5G accessible to everyone
With its Redmi 10 5G, Xiaomi intends to make 5G as affordable as possible. The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G processor, and offers 2 SIM support. The Redmi 10 5G is equipped with a 6.58-inch FHD+ IPS display with a 90 Hz refresh rateof a 5000mAh battery and is compatible with the fast charging 33W Pro.
On the photo side, we find a 50 MP main camera as well as a 2 MP depth sensor. Unfortunately, we can regret the absence of an ultra wide-angle sensor, yet present on most of its competitors. However, we can note the support of 2 SIM cardswhich is not so common for such an inexpensive smartphone.
Prices and availability
For the moment, Xiaomi has only revealed the prices in dollars of its devices, so we will have to wait a few more days or weeks before knowing more about their prices in euros. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G will be available from 369 dollars in its version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. We know, however, thanks to the leaker @_snoopytech_ that the smartphone should be available in France from 449 euros.
For its part, the Redmi Note 11S 5G is as expensive as the Redmi Note 11S, since it is also available from $249. Its price in euros should therefore also be set at 249 euros for the version with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. You will then have to choose what you prefer between raw performance with 5G and photo performance to know which model to choose.
At last, the Redmi 10 5G starts at just $199making it one of the cheapest 5G smartphones on the market. However, it should be sold a little more expensive than the Redmi Note 11, in France. The latter, however, offers a much more interesting technical sheet, but without 5G.
