The Redmi Note line is one of Xiaomi’s most popular smartphone series. And this is largely because smartphones in this line are usually budget-friendly and are always packed with premium features that you’ll only find on high-end smartphones. Just recently, Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi Note 11 – succeeding the Redmi Note 10 launched a year ago.
During the launch, Xiaomi announced that the Redmi Note 11 5G (the premium model) will start at a recommended retail price of $329 (for the 6GB/64GB model), $349 (for the 6GB/128GB model), and $379 (for 8GB/128GB model). The basic Redmi Note 11, however, will start at a recommended retail price of $179 (for the 4GB/64GB model).
For a smartphone series packed with some really amazing features including 5G and fast charging, a recommended retail price of $179 and $329 for the premium model is a bargain, in my opinion.
5G is the next generation of mobile connectivity (although, it won’t be replacing 4G technology, entirely). A year ago, we saw some of the biggest names in the smartphone industry unveil 5G enabled smartphones, including the iPhone 13 series, the Samsung Galaxy S21 series, and the most recent was Google’s Pixel 6. We are now seeing even budget-friendly smartphone coming with support for 5G – there is no better time to grab a 5G compatible smartphone.
The new Redmi Note 11 series features a 5G compatible smartphone (Redmi Note 115G) in its line up. This smartphone is expected to retail for a recommended price of $329. It is one to consider if you’re looking to buy a 5G compatible smartphone.
67W Turbo Charge
It is no longer enough to own a smartphone that is powered by a massive battery (a 5000mAh battery, for instance), the time spent charging that battery for more juice is also important. To ensure that you don’t spend the entire day charging up your device, smartphone brands are contentiously improving the qualities and the charging speed of their charging bricks. The Redmi Note 11 comes with support for 67W Turbo charge, and according to Xiaomi, this will charge your device from 0-50% in just 15 minutes. And over 2 days of battery life on a full charge.
120Hz Refresh rate
If you are a mobile gaming enthusiast, you will understand the importance of gaming on a smartphone that supports 120Hz display refresh rate. For your normal day-to-day scrolling and using apps, the difference (from a 60Hz or 90Hz refresh rate) might not be so obvious, however, there is that noticeable difference while playing graphic-demanding games on your smartphone.
In conclusion, the Redmi Note 11 will be available for purchase from as early as February, and will be available through a variety of smartphone retailers.
