Redmi Note 11R presented: a balanced budget that is unlikely to interest you


Xiaomi launches so many smartphones on the market that it is really easy to get confused in this bunch of devices, especially since many models have almost the same characteristics. The Redmi 11R released today is also “one of many”. It will certainly sell well due to its low price, but it’s not a device to get excited about.

Xiaomi’s new smartphone is here

Redmi 11R is a budget model that offers an IPS display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, a diagonal of 6.58 inches and a Full HD + resolution of 2408 × 1080 pixels. Since this is not an AMOLED screen, the fingerprint scanner is located on the side of the device.

Sufficient performance will be provided by a MediaTek Dimenstity 700 2.2 GHz (7 nm) processor with 4 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.2 internal memory. The smartphone also supports microSD cards up to 1TB (a separate slot is provided), and it is powered by a 5000 mAh battery with support for 18W wired charging (via USB-C port). However, the kit comes with a power supply of only 10 watts.

The Redmi 11R offers two rear cameras – 13 MP (f / 2.2) + 2 MP (f / 2.4), and one in front – 5 MP, as well as infrared and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The device measures 163.99 × 76.09 × 8.9 mm and weighs 201 grams.

Looking at the characteristics, it seems that we have already seen it somewhere. And indeed, because Redmi 11R is the twin brother of POCO M4 5G, which in turn has a lot in common with Redmi 10 5G – and it is a rebrand of Redmi Note 11E. Xiaomi has consistently cloned its smartphones to the fullest, and it’s really easy to get lost in all of this.

How much does Redmi 11R cost?

The cheapest version of Redmi 11R with 4/128 GB of memory cost 1099 yuan in China, which is equivalent to ~$155. The 6/128 GB variant is $169, while the 8/128 GB configuration is $197. Redmi 11R will be available in China in three color options: black, gray and blue.
