Redmi Note 11 presented: The 90 Hertz AMOLED Pioneer
Today the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi presented some smartphones with the Redmi Note 11 series. In this article we take a closer look at the regular Redmi Note 11.
The biggest feature is certainly the high-quality display on the front, but Xiaomi also wants to score points in terms of performance, the battery and the camera.
With dimensions of 159,87 millimeters in height and 73,87 millimeters in width, the entry-level smartphone has a fairly standard size. With a weight of 179 grams, it's not particularly heavy either, and the thickness of 8,09 millimeters is perfectly fine considering the large battery (more soon).
If we look at the front, we are greeted by a large display, which is only interrupted by a small punch hole and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Xiaomi obviously took a little inspiration from Apple when it came to the frame, as it is flat and not rounded towards the back. When it comes to colors, customers have Graphite gray, Twilight Blue and StarBlue three beautiful colors to choose from.
The already mentioned display measures 6,43 inches and has a pleasantly sharp resolution of 2.400 x 1.080 pixels. The particularity of this screen concerns the technology, because while in the recent past Xiaomi has been using the Little X3 NFC, redmi 10 and Co. have mainly installed cheap LC displays, the new Redmi Note 11 uses a high-quality OLED panel, which on top of that even supports a smooth refresh rate of 90 Hertz. In addition, there is a touch sampling rate (indicates how often the screen registers, scans or recognizes inputs in one second) of a decent 180 Hertz.
Under the hood is the Snapdragon 680 from Qualcomm, which is manufactured using the energy-saving 6-nanometer process. Depending on the version, there is also 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal memory, which can be expanded via a microSD card. The in-house MIUI user interface in version 13, based on Android 11, is used as the software. The built-in 5.000 mAh battery, which can be charged conveniently quickly with the included 33 watt power supply, should ensure long runtimes. The smartphone can be unlocked via the fingerprint sensor on the side of the frame. Stereo speakers and a 3,5 millimeter headphone jack are on board the Redmi Note 11, which should make some people happy.
On the back there is space for four sensors in the top left, which we already know from the Redmi 10. The main camera is a 50 megapixel sensor from Samsung that delivers solid results. There is also an ultra-wide-angle camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels and, of course, two other sensors, each with 2 megapixels (how should it be otherwise with an entry-level smartphone), which are responsible for macro shots and depth effects. Selfies succeed with a 13 megapixel front camera.
