Xiaomi Mi 11i: The European version of the Redmi K40 Pro+

Like the Mi 11 and the Mi 11 Ultra, the Xiaomi Mi 11i is also equipped with the high-end Snapdragon 888 SoC.

Xiaomi is bringing the Redmi K40 Pro+ to Europe as the Mi 11i. The first "i" smartphone in the Mi 11 series ranks between the Mi 11 Lite 5G and the Mi 11 in terms of performance and equipment. As our review reveals, the gap to the more expensive Mi 11 high-end model is only very narrow in some cases.

The Mi 11i has an official starting price of 600 Euros (~$708), a value that has naturally already been significantly undercut in online stores. By now, the entry-level version with 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 storage can already be found with a discount of around 100 Euros (~$118) compared to the MSRP, resulting in a price tag of around 500 Euros (~$590).

After the realme GT 5G, this makes the Mi 11i the cheapest smartphone equipped with the high-end Snapdragon 888 SoC at the moment. The same CPU is also found in the flagships of the Mi 11 series, the Mi 11 and the Mi 11 Ultra.

AMOLED display with 1080p resolution and 120 Hz

The 5G-capable Mi 11i has the same premium workmanship as its more expensive Mi 11 counterpart, and it also features a 120 Hz AMOLED panel that managed over 1,000 cd/m² in our test. The average value is always around 880 cd/m². This is accompanied by a very homogeneous panel illumination and accurate color reproduction.

Together with the good Dolby Atmos speakers and the touch sampling rate of 360 Hz, the Mi 11i is also a good gaming machine. However, there are still some limitations compared with the Mi 11: At 6.67-inches, the Mi 11i is slightly smaller than its 6.81-inch counterpart, and the Mi 11i's resolution of 2400x1080 pixels is also lower (Mi 11: 3200x1440).

At 4,520 mAh, the Mi 11i also packs a slightly smaller battery than that of the Mi 11, which has a 4,500 mAh battery. But this difference doesn't show a negative effect in the test - quite the opposite: The Mi 11 consistently achieves slightly better battery runtimes, because the Mi 11's higher-resolution and larger AMOLED display is a bit detrimental to its energy consumption.

My fascination for computers started with the C64. Since then, I’ve put everything that comes my way in terms of hardware through its paces. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and the first PC with an 8088 CPU, my list of projects has grown increasingly longer. For more than 20 years now I have also turned my hobby into my profession and have been active in the mobile section of Notebookcheck since 2021. Before that, I worked as a hardware editor for IDG Media (tecChannel.de) and VNU Business Publications (PC professional), among others.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
