Redmi Note 11T Pro debuts with a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 and lackluster cameras
Today in China, Xiaomi finally launched its new mid-range phones in the Redmi Note 11T series. The Redmi Note 11T phones are an iterative update to the Redmi Note 11 phones that debuted in October last year, albeit with a focus on performance.
The Redmi Note 11T Pro sports a 6.67-inch FHD+ 144 Hz LCD. That's unlikely to please AMOLED lovers. Under the hood, however, is MediaTek's impressive Dimensity 8100, a chipset that outperforms the Snapdragon 888 on last year's Mi 11 series and has been tested to offer a better gaming experience than even the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 on the Xiaomi 12 series. Performance is the focus, and the Redmi Note 11T Pro offers LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.
Camera-wise, the Redmi Note 11T Pro features a 64 MP main shooter, aided by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle snapper and a 2 MP macro lens. There's a 16 MP camera out front for selfies. Xiaomi unabashedly has no camera ambitions here and it's no surprise that the 64 MP camera is the ISOCELL GW1, a three-year-old sensor that also featured on the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Other features of the Redmi Note 11T Pro include a 5080 mAh battery, 67 W charging, stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.3 support, a 3.5 mm jack, and IP53 certification. The phone is available in configurations of 6/128 GB, 8/128 GB, and 8/256 GB, costing CNY 1699 (US$255), CNY 1899 (US$285), and CNY 2099 (US$305) respectively.
