Xiaomi officially released the global Redmi Note 11 series in Qatar. The lineup includes two Pro models, namely Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G and Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. The post will give you an idea of how they differ from each other.
Build and Design
The Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G in Qatar and Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G feature an identical design, dimensions, and weight. They measure 164.19 x 76.1 x 8.12mm in dimensions and weigh 202g. They sport a flat frame and a rectangular camera island on the rear.
The phones not only use a glass panel on the back but are also IP53-rated for dust and splash resistance. They come in two common colors (Graphite Gray, Polar White) and one exclusive color (4G – Star Blue, 5G – Atlantic Blue).
Both the devices in Qatar sport the same 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels (FHD+), 395 PPI, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 360Hz touch sampling rate. The screen supports DCI-P3 color gamut, 4,500,000:1 contrast ratio, 700 nits typical brightness, and up to 1200 nits peak brightness.
The panel has a centered punch-hole and is compatible with MIUI’s Sunlight Display and Reading Mode 3.0
Chipset, RAM, and Storage
A MediaTek Helio G96 SoC runs the Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G, and therefore, it is limited to 4G connectivity. On the other hand, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC with support for 5G connectivity.
But both of them have the matching LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.2 storage. In fact, they also arrive in identical memory configurations, like 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 128GB.
First and foremost, the duo nests a 16MP selfie camera inside the punch-hole on the front. Secondly, the 5G model has a triple camera setup on the rear instead of quad like the 4G version.
The only difference is that the Remi Note 11 Pro 5G lacks the fourth 2MP depth sensor, which is found on the Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G. Other than that, both have a 108MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide, and a 2MP macro snapper.
Connectivity and Ports
As their names suggest, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G only supports 4G, while the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G can connect to a 5G network. They feature a dual-SIM card slot, however, it is of the hybrid type.
Further, the duo arrives with dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1, GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BDS, GALILEO), and NFC (market dependent).
Finally, they have a 3.5mm headphone jack, in addition to a USB Type-C port.
Weirdly, despite releasing in 2022, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G and the Remi Note 11 Pro 5G ship with Android 11 out of the box. Thankfully, they at least come with the latest MIUI 13.
Battery and Charging
Both the Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G and the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G get their juice from a 5,000mAh battery. This huge cell can be filled in under an hour as it supports 67W fast charging. The required power adapter is bundled with the handsets.
The smartphones come with all the essential sensors like an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass, proximity sensor, gyroscope, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
They also arrive with an IR blaster, dual stereo speakers, a z-axis linear vibration motor, and liquid cooling technology for thermal management.
