Launched yesterday in China, the Redmi Note 11 SE essentially resumes the characteristics of the Redmi Note 10 5G, launched in 2021, but with a small detail less: the macro sensor, which this time falls by the wayside.
Yesterday, Xiaomi launched its Redmi Note 11 SE in China. This affordable smartphone is nearly identical in specs to the Redmi Note 10 5G, a model we tested last year that convinced us despite several shortcomings, particularly in terms of image and display quality.
Unfortunately, it is not with this new Redmi Note 11 SE that Xiaomi will refine its recipe: the device sticks to the achievements of its predecessor. It changes its name, but retains its technical file… strangely, leaving aside one of its past characteristics. The 2MP macro camera sensor installed on the back of the Note 10 5G completely disappears, it says gizmochina.
Technical and price stagnation
As for specifications, we will therefore find a 6.5-inch Full HD + IPS LCD screen that can reach up to 90 Hz, a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor coupled to 4 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The set is finally powered by a 5,000mAh battery and comes in two colors: Shadow Black or Deep Sea Blue.
As for the design, there is nothing new either since we find a look very close to the one adopted in 2021 by the Poco M3 Pro 5G. It is also useless to wait for a change in the rate plan: we are below the starting price bar of 160 euros. The 4 GB RAM + 128 GB storage model is thus advertised in China at 1,099 yuan (that is, approximately 153 euros without taxes), while the 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage version comes out at 1,399 yuan ( that is, a little less than 195 euros without taxes). ). Note, however, that we do not know, at least at this stage, if this new Redmi Note 11 SE will arrive in France.
Anyway, the device was announced along with a number of new products, including the Xiaomi Band 7 connected bracelet, Redmi Bugs 4 headphones and the new Redmibook Pro Ryzen Edition, a laptop available in 14 and 15 inches and with the latest AMD Ryzen. 6000 “H” processors.
