Redmi Note 11 series to feature a 108 MP camera and a MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC as Xiaomi shares a less-than-stellar AnTuTu score
Xiaomi has confirmed two more aspects about the Redmi Note 11 series ahead of its launch on October 28. Posting on Weibo, the company has informed fans that more than one member of the series will feature a 108 MP primary camera, along with a MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC. Both were already expected to make their way to the Redmi Note 11 series, but this is the first time that Xiaomi has verified this.
As Xiaomi teases on Weibo, the 108 MP camera can output at up to 12,000 x 9,000 pixels. However, it also supports 9-in-1 pixel binning, yielding 2.1 μm-wide pixels. Based on those specifications, it seems likely that Xiaomi has equipped the Redmi Note 11 series with a Samsung ISOCELL HM1 sensor. For context, the ISOCELL Bright HMX has a 12,032 x 9,024 effective resolution, which Xiaomi uses in numerous smartphones like the Mi 11 and MIX 4.
Based on previous rumours, Xiaomi has equipped the Redmi Note 11 and Redmi Note 11 Pro with the Dimensity 920, but not the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus. Supposedly, the latter will feature the Dimensity 1100 or Dimensity 1200 instead, which has higher peak clock speeds, more ARM Cortex-A78 cores and a superior GPU than the Dimensity 920.
Incidentally, Xiaomi brags that the Redmi Note 11 series and a Dimensity 920 have scored 500,949 points on AnTuTu V9. This score, achieved under optimal conditions, only just edges out the Dimensity 900-backed Oppo Reno6 5G, though. Its score is also far from those logged by Snapdragon 778G and Snapdragon 780G-powered handsets, as AnTuTu discussed in its most recent blog post.
