Since its official announcement, it took about two months to get our hands on it. Yes, after a presentation last January, the 5G version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro is now available in most stores and promises, like its predecessors, excellent value for money.
The 2022 harvest of Xiaomi’s affordable range arrives in a dropper. We were first treated to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S last February, then the 4G version of the Redmi Note 11 Pro a few weeks later and now it is the turn of the 5G model of the Redmi Note 11 Pro to make its entrance. This version of the smartphone was highly anticipated, so here you can buy it at the best possible price.
Where to buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G?
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is already on sale at 339.90 euros for the 6 + 64 GB model, at 369.90 euros for 6 + 128 GB and 399.90 for 8+128 Gb. Several colors are available: Graphite Grey, Glacier White and Ocean Blue.
What are the differences with the 4G version?
In many ways, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is the same smartphone as its 4G counterpart. We find the same design, with cuts that are very reminiscent of the contours of an iPhone: an aluminum one that surrounds the phone and of the same size, weighing less than 200 grams and a screen diagonal of 6.67 inches. . The panel looks promising, using AMOLED technology with Full HD+ definition and a 120Hz refresh rate, as well as a 360Hz touch sampling rate.
For autonomy, it is also housed in the same boat as the Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G, with a battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh. It is 20 mAh less than its predecessor, but this small difference should not affect the endurance of the smartphone, which is estimated to be around two days on paper. The fast charging system then promises to be very efficient, since the 67 W block that comes with the phone can recover 50% of the battery in just 15 minutes, and 100% between 30 and 40 minutes, depending on the brand. However, wireless charging is not included.
The differences with the 4G version come first at the photo level. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G has a 108-megapixel main sensor (the 1/1.52″ Samsung HM2, capable of offering a lot of detail even in low light), an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 8-megapixel macro sensor. 2 megapixels. Until then, nothing too dramatic, but it still ignores the 2-megapixel depth sensor found on the other model. A little less versatility therefore, but the same quality of shots between the two, at least we hope so.
What will change above all is the choice of SoC integrated into the smartphone. If the Note 11 Pro 4G has opted for MediaTek with a Helio G96, the Note 11 Pro 5G turns around and goes to Qualcomm to ship the Snapdragon 695, with between 6 and 8 GB of RAM depending on the chosen model. The two configurations should offer fairly similar performance, but the latter obviously brings compatibility with the ultra-fast mobile network that is slowly but surely being rolled out in France. Xiaomi has already used this chip, since it is the one that already equips its Poco X4 Pro 5G.
