Xiaomi has announced the Redmi Note 11 series, continuing its famous line of budget phones sold in huge numbers in India and many other markets.

A 108-megapixel main camera is supported by an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro camera. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is the only phone in this group that does not have a 2MP depth camera.

The Redmi Note 11 Pro is essentially identical to the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, but uses Mediatech's Helio G96 processor that only supports LTE connectivity.

The Redmi Note 11 has a Snapdragon 680 processor, a smaller 6.43-inch LCD, a 90 Hz refresh rate, and a resolution of 1,080 pixels.

The Redmi Note includes 11 50MP main cameras, 33W fast charging, and up to 6GB of RAM instead of 8GB of RAM in the Redmi Note 11 Pro.

The Redmi Note 11S has the same screen and 33W fast charging as the Redmi Note 11. But with the Helio G96 processor, the 108MP master camera, and the 8GB RAM option, such as the Redmi Note 11 Pro.

All of these phones come with 5,000 mAh batteries. There are fingerprint sensors, headphone ports, and up to 128GB of storage.

The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G starts at $330 for a 6/64GB version and up to $380 for the 8/128GB version.
