Redmi Note 11T 5G Review: All About Performance? – NDTV
The Redmi Note 11T 5G is the latest affordable smartphone in India to boast of 5G connectivity. This new model is the successor to the Redmi Note 10T 5G, which was launched less than six months ago. However, it wouldn’t be fair to treat the Redmi Note 11T 5G as a minor upgrade. This new smartphone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC, which is manufactured on a 6nm process. The Note 11T 5G also boasts of a 90Hz display and support for 33W fast charging.
So, do all these features help the Redmi Note 11T 5G stand out? I put the phone to the test to find out.
Redmi Note 11T 5G price in India
The Redmi Note 11T 5G starts at Rs. 16,999 in India for the base variant which has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costs Rs. 17,999, and the top-end option which has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is priced at Rs. 19,999. As an introductory offer, Xiaomi is offering a Rs 1,000 discount and ICICI Bank is offering another Rs. 1,000 discount to its card holders. These effectively bring the price down by Rs. 2,000 for each variant. Xiaomi offers the Redmi Note 11T 5G in three colours: Stardust White, Aquamarine Blue, and Matte Black.
Redmi Note 11T 5G design
The Redmi Note 11T 5G carries forward the company’s EVOL design language, which makes it familiar and recognisable. It has a big display with a hole for the front camera, and fairly thin bezels at the top and sides while the chin is thicker. The frame and the back panel are made of plastic but feel sturdy.
You’ll notice the 195g weight when you pick this device up, but it is manageable. The Redmi Note 11T 5G has its power and volume buttons on the right. These are within reach when holding the device. The power button has an integrated capacitive fingerprint scanner which makes it easy to unlock this phone. On the other side, you’ll only find the hybrid dual-SIM tray. Xiaomi has gone with stereo speakers on the Redmi Note 11T 5G; the grill on the top is positioned next to the secondary microphone and the IR emitter. At the bottom, the primary speaker is accompanied by the USB Type-C port, primary microphone, and 3.5mm audio jack.
The back panel only has the camera module, and it protrudes slightly. It’s big and might give the impression of a quad-camera setup, but it only houses two cameras. This is surprising since most phone manufacturers have been adding depth sensors and macro cameras to inflate the camera count for a while now.
I liked the Stardust White colour variant that I received for this review for its striking looks. I also found that the back panel hides smudges quite well. Xiaomi provides a case in the box as well as a 33W charger to top up the big 5000mAh battery quickly. The Redmi Note 11T 5G is also IP53 rated for dust and splash resistance.
