Announcement. Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S - 108 MP and other delights (+ start of sales on AliExpress, with goodies)

As expected, Xiaomi announced(already yesterday) the “global” series of Redmi Note 11 smartphones. And, of course, it once again increased the entropy of the universe, because the global Redmi Note 11 is not at all identical to the Chinese ones. But on AliExpress, of course, both will be sold.

  • Announcement. Global Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro and Note 11 Pro 5G – middle class
  • Announcement. Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S - 108 MP and other delights (+ start of sales on AliExpress, with goodies)
  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 - the youngest (+ start of sales on AliExpress, with goodies)

However, the smartphone, which will be discussed now, does not have a Chinese “namesake” in Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S. At least not yet.

Redmi Note 11S can be considered reducedversion of the device Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G Global. The same hardware, memory, battery. Well, charging is a little slower and the screen refresh rate is more modest. But these are trifles. From Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 4G Global, with which Redmi Note 11S is usually compared, there are more differences, as for me. But they have the same size and appearance.

So.The MediaTek Helio G96 chipset does not support 5G networks, which automatically puts our smartphone in the middle class. About 320 thousand points in AnTuTu. 6 or 8 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of permanent memory. There is support for memory cards, and, unlike the Redmi Note 11 Pro, the card tray is not a hybrid one.

The screen has a diagonal of 6.43 ″ versus 6.67 ″ for Redmi Note 11 Pro, the refresh rate is 90 Hz, not 120 Hz. Matrix - AMOLED, high resolution, 1080 × 2400 (409 ppi).

The battery is excellent, 5000 mAh. Plus fast charging, 33 watts. The “big brother” has 67 W in general, but no need to be picky.

The camera set is solid, but no frills.The front has a resolution of 16 MP. There are already 4 cameras at the back, 108 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP - the main one, wide-angle. In addition to them, there is a macro camera and a depth sensor. The main sensor is the well-known and very popular Samsung ISOCELL HM2. It is also used, for example, in Xiaomi 11T Pro.


Please note that there will be varieties of smartphones on sale, both with and without an NFC module.

The fingerprint scanner was not built into the screen, it is on the side. Wi-Fi fifth, dual-band. There is a standard audio output, a gyroscope and an IR transmitter.

About money.

Xiaomi officially declares the cost of $249(₽20200), $279 (₽22600) and $299 (₽24200) for versions 6+64, 6+128 and 8+128 GB respectively. But right now, there is a page on AliExpress that says that tomorrow, January 28, from 11 am Moscow time, the younger version can be bought even cheaper, for $229 (₽18,500). Plus, the first 600 buyers will receive rather expensive Redmi Buds 3 Pro “ears” as a gift (white price is ₽4990 ($63.2), but it’s easy to find a thousand cheaper).
