Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G, Redmi Note 11S 5G, Redmi 10 5G: What you need to know

Xiaomi isn’t done releasing Redmi Note 11 phones. This round features two new 5G-ready devices for the series, plus the first 5G Redmi series phone. Let’s take a quick look at what each device offers.

Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G

This handset can be considered the pinnacle of the Redmi Note series. It’s the first Redmi smartphone equipped with 120W wired charging so that you can recharge its 4,500mAh battery in just 15 minutes. Xiaomi does want to emphasize it will safely charge the phone with dual charge pumps that help deliver that fast speed and over 40 safety features. The phone gets a TÜV Rheinland’s Safe Fast-Charge System certification. 

Like the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, it also gets a 108-megapixel Samsung HM2 primary camera ultra-wide with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide. But this time, the 2-megapixel camera is a telemacro one. There’s a 16-megapixel selfie camera in front. It also has a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED DotDisplay with a 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate. 

The Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G runs on a MediaTek Dimensity 920 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. It’ll be available in Graphite Gray, Star Blue, and Forest Green. Color availability depends on the region.  

Redmi Note 11S 5G

If you were thinking about getting the Redmi Note 11S, you could choose a 5G option this time. This device runs on a MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset supporting dual 5G SIMs. It gets up to 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. 

It gets a more modest 50-megapixel AI triple camera with the same ultra-wide and telemacro lens as the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G. And then, there’s a 13-megapixel camera in front. The Redmi Note 11S has a 6.6-inch FHD+ DotDisplay with a 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. It also gets a 5,000mAh battery supporting 33W fast charging.

The Redmi Note 11S 5G comes in Midnight Black, Twilight Blue, and Star Blue.

Redmi 10 5G

If you prefer the Redmi 10 series, there’s now a 5G option here. It is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It is a dual-camera setup with a 50-megapixel main and 2-megapixel depth sensor at the back and a 5-megapixel selfie camera in front.

The Redmi Note 10 5G gets a 6.58-inch FHD+ DotDrop display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It also comes with a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support (but you get a 22.5W charger in the box).
