Flat edge design
Right off the box, the first thing you will notice with this phone is how hefty it is. The Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus (5G) is thick with a sharp and flat edges design. It feels and looks robust and premium to hold. The phone comes in the colors Mysterious Black, Forest Green, and Timeless Purple. It sports a solid metal chassis with a frosted glass back. This glass back gives off somehow a light effect when moved towards different angles. On the back, are two protruding square camera modules stacked vertically on the upper left corner with an LED flash? Then there’s some Redmi 5G branding below.
Found on the right side are all the buttons, the volume rocker, and the power key, which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. Meanwhile, located on top is a secondary noise-canceling microphone along with a second set of speaker grills. You can also find here on Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus (5G) a 3.5-millimeter audio port and an IR blaster as usual. Now the bottom is also packed with a primary microphone, primary speaker, and a USB Type C port. As for audio quality, the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus (5G) features a dual stereo setup that is tuned by JBL.
Flipping upfront, Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus (5G) has a similar display to the Note 11 Pro. Still very nice to see a 6.67 inches 120 Hertz, Full HD Plus, AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection on a mid-range smartphone. The bezels look relatively slim with the call speaker on the top part. And t also has that now normal punch hole notch on the upper middle. You can still hide with a black bar in the settings if you are not a fan of it.
There’s an additional screen protector included in the box. This display is vibrant, sharp, and has nice deep blacks thanks to AMOLED. Viewing angles are great and it’s easily viewable under direct sunlight. There’s an option under display settings to switch the refresh rate between 120 Hertz and the standard 60 Hertz if you want to save more battery life. Also, this phone has a 360 Hertz touch something rate. Now the ratios here are as follows, 86.1% screen-to-body ratio, and 20:9 ratio aspect ratio.
108MP Camera & telephoto
Checking out the cameras of the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus (5G) it has a quad setup at the back. The same is composed of a 108 MP, f/1.9, 26mm (wide), 1/1.52″, 0.7µm, PDAF primary lens. The other two are 8 MP, 120˚ (ultrawide), and a 2 MP, f/2.4, 50mm (telephoto macro). Quality-wise you will be impressed. It brings out a lot of details, vibrant colors, and a decent dynamic range in bright conditions. Ultra-wide photos turn out good as well.
If you want the best quality then you can always use its 108-megapixel mode or the Pro mode which also gives quick access to the 108-megapixel lens. Selfies are a result of its 16 MP, f/2.4, (wide) shooter and it does a respectable job. Its videos are not capped at 1080p@30fps since this one can also achieve up to 4K@30fps, 1080p@30/60/120fps, 720p@960fps. And do not forget that this phone has a telephoto macro which is a big deal. You might also want to check out Infinix Zero 5G on this point. But unlike Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus (5G), It doesn’t have a 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth) sensor.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus (5G) has a MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G (6 nm) chipset and eight or 12 GB of RAM. For reference, its closest Snapdragon competitors are the Snapdragon 860 and the 778G.

Pre-installed apps include Amazon shopping, booking.com, LinkedIn, Mi-remote, and the usual apps from Google, such as YouTube, Gmail drive photos, and the like.
