Global versions of Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S have arrived
While Pro models intend to increase their sales with ambition and power, Redmi Note 11 and Note 11S will win the hearts of users by being smaller, lighter and cheaper. Of course, these new devices share some interesting features with the Pro versions.

The camera has received a major update. The Redmi Note 11S uses the same ISOCELL HM2 Pro models with a 108-megapixel sensor, and it’s a big leap over the 64-megapixel sensor of the 10S. The regular Note 11 also uses a 50-megapixel sensor for imaging. Also, both devices have a 118-degree ultrawide lens with an 8-megapixel sensor, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Meanwhile, 13 and 16 megapixel selfie cameras are used in Redmi Note 11 and 11S, respectively. The S model gets the Helio G96 chip, but the regular Redmi Note 11 packs the Snapdragon 680. G96 is built on the old 12nm process, but has relatively new Cortex-A76 cores (two of them). The Snapdragon chip is also made by the modern 6nm process.
