Aside from the Pro models, the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S are also introduced. Naturally, these two phones are more affordable than their Pro counterparts, while still offering reasonably good hardware.
The more affordable device of the two is the Redmi Note 11, which starts at just $179 (about RM750) with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset. The Note 11S, on the other hand, is powered by a MediaTek Helio G96 processor from $249 (approximately RM1,045).
The price difference between the two phones (aside from the different processor) lies in the camera. While both phones feature a quad camera system with the same 8MP ultra-wide shooter, 2MP macro lens, and 2MP depth sensor, the Note 11S has a 108MP primary camera, while the regular Note 11 features a 50MP main shooter.
Other specifications of the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S include a 6.43-inch 1080p AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, a 16MP selfie camera (13MP for the standard Note 11), and a 5,000mAh battery with support for 33W fast wired charging.
The Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S will be available globally sometime this month. As for us here in Malaysia, the Redmi Note 11 series will be launched here on 10 February 2022 next month, though the company did not mention if the launch includes the Note 11 and Note 11S.
