Xiaomi just launched a slew of smartphones under the Redmi Note 11 series. The lineup is headlined by the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, followed by the standard Pro model. Naturally, both phones are priced quite competitively.
Let’s start with the more budget-friendly phone of the two, the Redmi Note 11 Pro. Starting at only $299 (about RM1,255), it features a MediaTek Helio G96 processor. The higher-end Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, on the other hand, retails from $329 (approximately RM1,380) with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset instead.
Beyond the different chipset, both phones are quite similar to each other. They are packed with a 6.67-inch 1080p AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, along with a generous 5,000mAh battery with support for 67W fast wired charging.
Curiously, in the camera department, the standard Redmi Note 11 Pro features a quad camera system (108MP main + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP macro + 2MP depth), but the 5G model omits the depth sensor. Aside from that, both phones also have a 16MP selfie camera.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and the regular Pro model will be available globally sometime in February 2022. No word yet on exactly when (or if) these two phones will be sold in Malaysia, though we reckon they will eventually make it here, given Xiaomi’s large presence here.
