Update Friday 01/28 9:00 a.m.: if the Redmi Note 11S and 11 Pro are still not available, AliExpress has been offering the Redmi Note 11 exclusively since this morning on its commercial platform (even the official Xiaomi website has not yet listed it). Little bonus: . The latter is limited to 1,500 pieces, you will have to be very quick.
Xiaomi's accessible range is marketed under the Redmi brand and since last year, the Note 10 has been a sensation. This bestselleris replaced by the Redmi Note 11, which is available in 2022 in three versions (in addition to a fourth 5G compatible). The Redmi Note 11, Note 11S, Note 11 Pro and Pro 5G are essentially the same, but for a few euros more or less, you can equip yourself with a smartphone with the best quality-price ratio on the market. Among their differences: screen sizes, processor capacity, camera and battery charging. We offer you a comparison.
To help you better understand the new features and changes of the Redmi Note 11, we put each of the three versions face to face for a special comparison Redmi Note 11 vs 11S vs 11 Pro.

Here is a page to help you distinguish the three Redmi smartphones that will be widely talked about this year, as their marketing begins this month of February.

These are minor points in this comparison, but they may help you choose. To discover the major differences between Redmi Note 11, 11S and 11 Pro, read the rest of this comparison.
The design of the model does not differ depending on the version. Note that the Note 11 has fewer curves than the Note 10. We notice the influence of the design of the iPhone 13 with the angular borders which, to our taste, look great . For handling, this adds a feeling of quality while the smartphone remains a device made of plastic (to limit costs).
The Redmi Note 11 Pro is slightly wider than the Redmi Note 11 and 11S: 164.19mm x 76.1mm x 8.12mm compared to 159.87mm x 73.87mm x 8.09mm. The screen protection of the Redmi Note 11 Pro is superior to the other two versions thanks to its Gorilla Glass 5(against Gorilla Glass 3), an advantage against micro-scratches. Note that all three smartphones have IP53 certification for waterproofing. The smartphone therefore cannot go into the water (in exchange, the device has a jack port).
On the < side strong>colors, we can find each variation in black version “Graphite Gray”. Then, two other choices are specific to the Redmi Note 11, Note 11S and Note 11 Pro. A special color is also available for the Note 11 Pro 5G.
- Redmi Note 11: Graphite Gray, Twilight Blue, Star Blue

Xiaomi offered the Redmi Note 10 with a single screen size: 6.43 inches. This is taken up by the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S, but now a 6.67 inch panel has been added. It equips the Redmi Note 11 Pro. As you can see, the difference is subtle, but if you prefer larger screens, you will have to look at the Note 11 Pro. Moreover, the latter has superior display capacities: the refresh rate is 120 Hz, an exclusive on the version. The Note 11 and Note 11S are limited to image fluidity at 90 Hz.
The refresh rate is a detail for some, a real plus for others. #8217;others who will appreciate the fluidity of the animations and the additional game quality for gaming. That said, Redmi has not been jealous about the resolutions. The three Redmi Note 11s are equipped with a AMOLED Full HD+ screen(2400 x 1080 pixels). We only note a slightly higher brightness for the Redmi Note 11 Pro at maximum power, compared to the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S.

What developments can be seen between the Redmi Note 10 and the Redmi Note 11? What really distinguishes the three versions of the Redmi Note 11? To find out everything, you must continue this comparison on the side of their respective technical sheet. Xiaomi distinguishes its three smartphones in terms of photo, performance, and charging. For 5G compatibility, as we said above, you will have to turn to the Note 11 Pro 5G, the only version equipped with a 5G modem with its processor. p>
Xiaomi has not been careful in its choices of processors. In total, the range has 3 different chips. The SoC of the Redmi Note 11 is a Snapdragon 680, that of the Redmi Note 11S and Note 11 Pro is a MediaTek Helio G96 and finally that of the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is a strong>Snapdragon 695. We see that the Note 11S – although it is positioned below the Note 11 Pro – has the same processor and performance.
In our opinion, the Helio G96 processor will be much more comfortable than the “small” Snapdragon 680. So prefer the Note 11S or the Note 11 Pro. Their chip will also consume less energy and you will be able to benefit from additional autonomy.
Depending on your choice, the Redmi Note 11 will be offered with 4 or 6 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of storage. For Redmi Note 11S, 11 Pro and 11 Pro 5G, 6 or 8 GB of RAM with 64 or 128 GB of storage. Therefore, the criterion of internal space is not to be taken into account in your choice between Redmi Note 11, 11S and 11 Pro. No 5G therefore on all versions, but no Wifi 6 either. The different Redmi Note 11s are in the same boat with Wifi 5 compatibility and Bluetooth 5.1.
Autonomy and charging
Second major point among the differences between the Note 11, the Note 11S and the Note 11 Pro, the battery. All of these Redmi Note 11s use the same battery as the previous Redmi Note 10. It delivers 5000 mAh. Difficult to do bigger… So to be able to continue to offer improved smartphones compared to their predecessors, Xiaomi has played the charging card.
Prefer the Redmi Note 11 Pro and 5G Pro which now offer ultra-fast charging at 67W. With it, you can therefore obtain a full charge in less than 30 minutes. Otherwise, the Redmi Note 11 makes do with 33W charging, already very fast (allow one hour for a complete recharge). All products are equipped with a USB-C port.
To be able to rank among the most popular smartphones and for less than 300 euros, Xiaomi has integrated good photo sensors into its product. For the price, the Redmi Note 10 already did well. Now, the Redmi Note 10 goes a little further, especially on its Pro version. But as you will see, the 11S version is also very well equipped. If you want to buy the Redmi Note 11 for its photo-quality ratio, know that the Redmi Note 11S is as well equipped as the Redmi Note 11 Pro, for a lower price.
It’s as well as the Redmi Note 11S and Note 11 Pro integrate a main sensor of 108 megapixels. The module opens at ƒ/1.9 and is signed Samsung. It is complemented by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor with an angle of 118 degrees. The Redmi Note 10 is limited to a main module of 50 Mpxl, which does not differentiate it much from the previous Note 10 and its 48 Mpxl sensor. In addition, it is also equipped with a 118 degree ultra wide angle. For the front camera, count 13 Mpxl for the Redmi Note 11 and 16 Mpxl for the Redmi Note 11S and Note 11 Pro.
Concerning the French prices, Xiaomi tells us that we will have to wait until February to know the final prices. According to our information,the Redmi Note 11 should be marketed at 199 euros. The other models should not exceed the symbolic mark of 300 euros.
Updated Friday 01/28 9:00 a.m.: if the Redmi Note 11S and 11 Pro are still not available, AliExpress has been offering the Redmi Note 11 exclusively on its merchant platform since this morning (even the official Xiaomi website has not yet listed it). Little bonus: . The latter is limited to 1,500 pieces, you will have to be very quick.
Similarly, we should know more next month for the availability of Redmi Note 11, Note 11S and Note 11 Pro in France. Xiaomi is not giving any information at this time, although it agrees that the product will be launched immediately after the presentation of its prices.
For our conclusion of this comparison of the differences between Redmi Note 11, Note 11S and Note 11 Pro, let's take stock of the range. While waiting for French prices, here is the hierarchy between the models. First there is the Note 11. It is the least expensive and has the characteristics of the Note 10. Among the changes with the latter, there is the design, more robust and neat, the 8217;slightly improved camera and the arrival of an NFC chip.
Next, the Note 11S. It is halfway between the Note 11 and the Note 11 Pro. It uses the same photo module and the same processor. That said, it has the same screen as the classic Note 11, its 33W charging and its (weak) Gorilla Glass 3 screen protection.
The Note 11 Pro and Pro 5G top the range. They are the most expensive, but offer all the new features and improvements of the smartphone compared to the old Redmi Note 10. Thus, it will find Samsung's 108 Mpxl camera, ultra-recharging fast 67W and the 120 Hz AMOLED screen.
In our opinion, Xiaomi has once again created the best smartphone under 300 euros on the market in this year 2022. The brand reiterates what 8217;she did with the Note 10. The choice of the 3.5 mm jack socket at the expense of reinforced water resistance is a good idea. But note that Xiaomi no longer delivers headphones in its packaging, even though the law has lifted this obligation (and all brands are now starting to save money).
We would have liked to see democratize wireless charging on the Note 11 Pro to add another major argument. But we will still have to wait. Most customers will already be satisfied with being able to equip themselves with a device with a design and design like this new Redmi Note 11 and its FullHD+ AMOLED screen.
