Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi has launched its first smartphone from the Note 11 series - the Redmi Note 11T 5G in India. As the name suggests, the smartphone supports 5G connectivity and succeeds the Redmi Note 10T 5G that debuted in the country earlier this year. In terms of design, both Redmi Note 10T 5G and Redmi Note 11T 5G look similar with a black-coloured rear camera module and hole-punch display. But the new phone is thicker than its predecessor by roughly 1mm and is 5 grams heavier. Other key features include up to 8GB of RAM, a 90Hz display, an upgraded 6nm-based MediaTek chipset, and a faster charging solution.
Starting with the design, the Redmi Note 11T 5G sports a 6.6-inch Full-HD+ display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection and up to 240Hz touch sampling rate. Customers can choose between Aquamarine Blue, Stardust White, and Matte Black colours. Under the hood, we get the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC that comes equipped with an ARM Mali-G57 GPU. The chipset is paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage that is expandable up to 3TB (only for the 8GB RAM option) with a microSD card. Additionally, we get RAM Booster technology that utilises idle ROM to offer up to 3GB of additional RAM for “lag-free operations during heavy multitasking." In terms of optics, we get a 50-megapixel primary camera at the back with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera that supports 119 degrees of field of view. At the front, we get a 16-megapixel camera for selfie and video calling. The camera app comes bundled with modes like Kaleidoscope, slow-motion, time-lapse video, night mode and more.
