Redmi, now Xiaomi’s sub-brand for mid-range and entry-level products, has just renewed its family. The company has presented the new Redmi Note 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro+, three mid-range models that are set to become bestsellers.
Betting entirely on big batteries, with a completely renewed design and the quality-price ratio characteristic of Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 11 family comes loaded at the hardware level. Let’s review its main features and technical specifications.

The 120W comes to the mid-range
The highlight of the new Redmi Note 11 Pro+ is its 120W fast charging, a figure it shares with high-end models, such as the Xiaomi 11T Pro. The battery is 4,500mAh, instead of the 5,000mAh we are used to seeing in the Redmi family, a small tribute in exchange for such charging power. It thus promises to be fully charged in just 15 minutes, without excessive battery degradation.
In the case of the Redmi Note 11 Pro, fast charging drops to 67W, but the battery is quite a bit larger, at 5,160mAh. An important adjustment at the software level is that we can limit the charge, in case we do not always want to charge with these high figures. The model with the lowest battery is the Redmi Note 11, with 5,000mAh and 33W fast charging.
Both Pro models feature a 6.67-inch panel with Full HD+ resolution and OLED technology. Also, the refresh rate is 120Hz, although the panel is not LTPO. The hole in the screen is only 2.96mm, and the bezels are less than 2mm (except for the bottom chin). It thus has a well-utilized front, even more so considering the range of the device.
As for the Redmi Note 11, the panel is LCD with a refresh rate of 90Hz, below its big brothers, but acceptable for a little more than €200 at the exchange rate that this entry-level model costs.
The sound in the Pro models is Dolby Atmos and the speakers are signed by JBL, the first time the Chinese company collaborates on a Redmi with this manufacturer. There is a top and bottom speaker, so the sound is stereo.
At the photographic level, they share a 108-megapixel sensor and size of 1/52 inches. It is a high-resolution sensor, although not so large physically. Nevertheless, it promises great sharpness and ease of cropping the image without losing too much detail. As usual, by default, they will shoot in 12-megapixel mode via Pixel Binning, with a high-resolution mode that will allow shooting at full resolution.
MediaTek hearts for all models
Both Pro models mount the MediaTek Dimensity 920, a fairly solvent MediaTek processor, although below the rumored Dimensity 1200. As for the Redmi Note 11, it is left with the Dimensity 810, a small step below.
All models have good memories, with configurations of up to 8 + 256 GB in all of them, including the Redmi Note 11. However, the base configuration of 4 GB of RAM is only found in the “small” one.
