We have listed what you need to know about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro.


Overview


As a follow-up to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro released in 2021, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro offers 5G over its predecessor with a few other minor tweaks. The smartphone is similar in size but slightly heavier, with a sleek design.


Using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor, it is a more robust mobile phone yet more restricted in its capabilities; one such example is that it can only support display resolutions up to 1080p. However, it has a tremendous 120Hz display that is finished with a glass back frosted surface, which, while it does a great job of resisting fingerprints, is nonetheless marked after a few minutes of use by the natural grease from our palms.


Numerous popular features are included in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, including stereo speakers, a microSD expansion slot, FM radio, a 3.5mm audio connector, NFC, an IR blaster, and an overview of solid battery performance.


Like the other Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 devices, it runs Android 11 and the most recent MIUI 13 version, which has significant internal upgrades that provide a better and quicker experience both now and over the course of the next few years, thanks to numerous improvements.


According to reports, the new update prioritizes significantly better resource allocation and should handle processor, RAM, and storage utilization better and more intelligently. The goal of MIUI 13 is to monitor how much RAM and processor are being used at any one time and suspend any superfluous processes to free up resources and improve performance.


Xiaomi states that background process optimization will rise by up to 40% versus the earlier version. The power management improvement within MIUI's core should result in a 10% reduction in power usage compared to MIUI 12's.
