Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Note 11 Series in South Africa, continuing the legacy of the Redmi Note Series with two brand new devices: the Redmi Note 11, and Redmi Note 11 Pro. Rising to the challenge to bring even stronger specs and features, the Redmi Note 11 Series again sees powerful upgrades to its camera system, charging speed, display, and SoC – making flagship-level smartphone performance more accessible than before.
Flagship-level camera setup delivers outstanding photography
Continually evolving the flagship camera experience, Redmi Note 11 Pro once again features 108MP primary sensors, allowing you to capture and share moments of your life in high resolution and true-to-life details. Incorporating a high-quality sensor with a large 1/1.52″ sensor size, the main camera leverages 9-in-1 pixel binning technology, as well as dual native ISO, to deliver incredible images with higher dynamic range and colour performance. Excellent results are achieved even in dim light.
The Redmi Note 11 and Note 11 Pro also come with a 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera that extends your perspective with a 118-degree viewing angle, a 2MP macro camera that captures fine details from up close, and a 2MP depth camera that allows you to create a natural bokeh effect for your portrait shots. The front of the Redmi Note 11 Pro also features a 16MP camera that can capture clear, natural-looking selfies.
FHD+ AMOLED DotDisplay with up to 120Hz refresh rate & trendy flat-edge body
Boasting a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of up to 360Hz, the Redmi Note 11 Series enhances your screen experience with smoother animations and lag-free transitions, while also registering more precise finger touches. With a screen size of 6.67-inch and 6.43-inch, the series is equipped with a FHD+ AMOLED DotDisplay featuring DCI-P3 wide color gamut, which provides more vibrant colours and details, while also reaching as much as 1200 nits to ensure the screen’s clarity even in bright daylight.
The beautiful display is packed into a trendy, flat-edge body design. Plus, with dual super linear speakers located at the top and bottom of the phone, the Redmi Note 11 Series offers a complete entertainment experience with immersive stereo sound for gaming or video watching.
Speedy and powerful performance on all fronts
