Just slightly a month after launching the Redmi Note 11 Series in Malaysia, Xiaomi has decided to expand the family with two more new models. They come in the form of Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G as well as Redmi Note 11S 5G and as you may be able to guess from their names, the support for 5G is one of Xiaomi’s main pitches for these devices.
The IP53-rated Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G is equipped with a 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display that also has a 120Hz refresh rate and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Running on a MediaTek Dimensity 920 processor, the Malaysian variant also comes with 8GB of RAM as standard.
For photography, the phone’s main camera features the 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor and f/1.8 lens alongside an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide camera and 2MP f/2.4 macro camera. There is also a 16MP f/2.4 punch-hole selfie camera right on the centre top part of the screen.
Xiaomi has also equipped the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G with a 4500mAh battery which can support the company’s 120W HyperCharge technology. The tech allows it to be fully charged in just 15 minutes and yes, the 120W charger is included together with the phone.
Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 11S 5G is not the mirror image of the 4G-based Note 11S. The 5G variant comes with a larger 6.6-inch Full HD+ 90Hz display and is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 810 processor instead of MediaTek Helio G96.
The camera module on the Note 11S 5G is also slightly different as it features a 50MP f/1.8 main camera instead of having a 108MP Samsung HM2 sensor and f/1.9 lens. It also misses the 2MP depth sensor but still has the same 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide camera and 2MP macro camera.
At the same time, the Note 11S 5G continues to have a 5000mAh battery and the support for a 33W fast charger. Fret not, the 33W charger comes with the phone as standard just like the Note 11 Pro+ 5G.
When it comes to pricing, the Note 11 Pro+ 5G 128GB will be available for RM1,499 while the 256GB variant goes for RM1,599. That being said, you can obtain them for slightly less at RM1,399 and RM1,499, respectively if you are one of the first to purchase them through Lazada and Shopee on 6 April.
As for the Note 11S 5G, it will only be released on 22 April though. Priced at RM999, the phone which comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage will be available through Xiaomi Authorized Stores and retailers across Malaysia as well as Xiaomi’s official stores on Lazada and Shopee.
