Xiaomi has launched its new Redmi Note 11 line and 5G has arrived on the budget phone series for the first time. That’s not all; impressive screen and camera specs could make this one of the best cheap phones out there.

5G connectivity has made its debut on the budget line of smartphones as the top-of-the-line Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is powered by the Snapdragon 695 chipset.

Brilliant specs including 120Hz refresh rates, 108-megapixel camera sensors and 67 fast charging are also featured on the eminently affordable four phones in the range – but read on to see which of the four new handsets is the perfect one for you.

The base model of the series is still a force to be reckoned with. The screen is a special highlight, namely a Full HD+ 6.43-inch AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a touch frequency of 180 Hz. The main camera has a resolution of 50 megapixels and is accompanied by an 8 megapixel ultra-wide angle lens and two 2 megapixel sensors (one of which is a macro snapper and the other a depth sensor).

Powered by a Snapdragon 680 chipset, the device also packs a sizable 5000 mAh battery that can be charged from 0-100% in just an hour thanks to the 33W fast fast charge.

Starting price (4GB RAM, 64GB storage): $179 (~£132)

This device will be available to buy in the UK, with official pricing to be confirmed upon release.

The ‘S’ version offers a very clear upgrade over the standard model, which is the main camera sensor; it clocks in at 108 megapixels instead of 50 megapixels, which is a surprising spec for a modest phone like this one. The front camera has also been bumped up to 16 megapixels instead of its younger sibling’s 13-megapixel selfie snapper. This model runs on the MediaTek Helio G96 chipset instead of the Snapdragon.

Starting price (6GB RAM, 64GB storage): $249 (~£184)

The Pro version of the series offers a big step forward in two main areas. First up is the display, which is not only slightly larger (6.67 inches), but also offers a 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz sampling rate for smoother scrolling and more responsive gaming. Then there’s the battery; although it has the same 5000 mAh capacity, it is compatible with blazing fast 67W fast charging and can apparently charge from empty to 51% in just 15 minutes.

Starting price (6GB RAM, 64GB storage): $299 (~£221)

The Note 11 Pro 5G is the undisputed king of the range, and the reason for that is in its name; this model is the first in the series to offer 5G connectivity, which it does thanks to a Snapdragon 695 chipset. If you want the highest mobile data speeds available, this is the right choice for you.

Starting price (6GB RAM, 64GB storage): $329 (~£243)

This device will be available to buy in the UK, with official pricing to be confirmed upon release.


It wasn’t just hardware on display at Xiaomi’s big event; there is also a new UI that will appear on all of the above phones and it is based on the Android 11 operating system.

MIUI 13 improves read and write efficiency by up to 60% thanks to the new data storage system called Liquid Storage, while Smart Balance automatically strikes the right balance between performance and power consumption, which could extend your phone’s battery life by as much as 10. %. If you’re an experienced multi-tasker, you’ll be pleased to hear that a new tool called Sidebar is also part of the new package, in the form of a floating window that can appear in the app whenever you want to switch to one of your other favorites. without having to go back to the home screen.
