Last year, the Redmi Note series finally clarified its product positioning. It has been upgraded from once a year to two generations a year. The first half of the year focuses on extreme performance, while the second half of the year focuses on more complete peripheral configurations to meet users’ diverse needs for this thousand-dollar diamond. This year, the Redmi Note series has launched a new naming strategy, which no longer directly accumulates numbers, but is distinguished by the letter code T. While the name is easier to remember, it also comes with a new product that is full of sincerity and performance. Redmi Note 11T Pro+ not only satisfies the performance pursuit of extreme performance enthusiasts but also prepares a surprise for LCD enthusiasts.
It is not only equipped with the current favorite God U Dimensity 8100 but also equipped with the first LCD screen certified by DisplayMate A+. The flagship God U+ is the best LCD screen. This time, the little King Kong is no longer only strong in the core, but also fully in line with the flagship. In addition to the two biggest highlights of the screen and SOC, other configurations of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ are also quite powerful, which can be called a bucket in a thousand yuan machine.
The 120W Immortal Second Chong + Surging P1 chip is completely decentralized. Envy flagship phone charging less than 20 minutes? You can also have it on the Redmi Note 11T Pro+. The rear camera is also a 64-megapixel main camera. Although it is an old-fashioned GW1, believe me, its performance is much better than the current 64-megapixel rear cameras.
In addition, ancestral infrared, X-axis linear motor, 3.5mm audio interface, full-featured NFC, dual speakers, and Bluetooth 5.3 are also a lot. Redmi Note 11T Pro+ can be said to be the closest to the flagship thousand yuan diamond ever.
Next, let’s take a look at how it is.
Design & Appearance
The LCD full screen of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ adopts a central punch-hole design, and the screen ratio is quite high for an LCD screen. Inside the punch, the hole is a 16-megapixel front camera, and some darkening around the punch hole is also a common problem with LCD screens, and the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is also unavoidable.
The top earpiece is designed at the junction of the front panel and the frame, which is difficult to find without looking carefully. The Redmi Note 11T Pro+ adopts the very popular vertical edge design. Both the front screen and the back shell use a certain 2.5D transition on the edge. Coupled with the narrower body of this generation, it can provide a more comfortable grip.
What we received is the color matching of atomic silver, and the back cover with a flashing sand texture is used on the back, which still has a certain texture under the irradiation of light. The rear camera module is made of frosted metal material, which is more refined and unified with the flashing silver style of the back cover. The three rear cameras are a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel super-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel super macro lens.
The buttons are still the volume button and the power button. The power button integrates fingerprint recognition and is set on the right side. The opening part is that the upper and lower dual speakers have independent openings, the top has an infrared, 3.5mm audio interface, and the bottom has a Type-C interface and a SIM card slot.
In addition to the transparent protective case, the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ also comes with a 120W charger and charging cable in the package.
To experience the Redmi Note 11T Pro+, the first thing to talk about is its screen. The Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is equipped with a 6.6-inch LCD screen, which has a refresh rate of up to 144Hz, supports 7-speed shifting, and can adapt to the content and switch to a suitable refresh rate for work. In addition, it also supports 10bit color depth, has 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, supports color temperature adjustment, etc. But these are not the point.
The LCD screen of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ has obtained the first DisplayMate A+ screen certification of its kind, achieving 14 screen records. You know, all the OLED screen flagships that have won this honor before. This is enough to show that at least the current Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is equipped with the best LCD screen, and the display effect is not inferior to the OLED flagship.
We also simply did the relevant tests. The maximum screen brightness of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is 463.39nit, which is nothing in the eyes of OLED, but it is a high-standard brightness in an LCD phone. It also supports Dolby Vision certification, which guarantees you can watch HDR content normally. While the brightness is a little off, it’s enough to ensure that the colors are mapped correctly, and you can still see deeper colors and more color detail.
In terms of color, the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ has up to 97.3% of the DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, in addition to 83% of the AdobeRGB color gamut and 99.9% of the sRGB color gamut. Daily viewing entertainment, you can get the best color performance. If you hate too bright colors, you can also use the color adjustment that comes with your phone, or you can switch to primary colors and other modes to enjoy 100% original colors.
In terms of color accuracy, the performance of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is also excellent. After testing, both white point, average color difference, and maximum color difference are in the range of excellent values. It can be said that this screen is the most accurate screen you can see on a mobile phone.
In addition, LCD screens have some inherent traditional advantages. For example, in terms of display fineness, the RGB arrangement without breakage is clearer than the OLED display text. With full DC dimming, there is no need to worry about eye fatigue and eye injury caused by low-frequency PWM strobe at low brightness.
In general, for LCD enthusiasts, this screen of Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is the best display and the most satisfying choice.
In terms of performance, Redmi Note 11T Pro+ also comes with three familiar flagship performance kits, Shen U Dimensity 8100, LPDDR5 memory, and UFS 3.1 flash memory. With the three-dimensional cooling system composed of VC liquid cooling + 7 layers of graphite, the performance can be fully released, we will use the benchmark software to test it.
The AnTuTu comprehensive test score is 803613 points, which is the normal level of the Dimensity 8100 and is comparable to the overall performance of the Snapdragon 888 model.
Geekbench 5 test, single-core 898 points, multi-core 3774 points, single-core is slightly inferior to Snapdragon 888, but multi-core is significantly ahead, which is also in line with our performance perception of Dimensity 8100.
In the GFXbench test, the performance release of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is very stable. Running six tests in a row has neither accumulated heat nor a serious drop in scores. The GPU performance is also ahead of the Snapdragon 888 in the same grade.
The continuous read speed is 1699.42 MB/s, which is the performance level of UFS 3.1 flash memory. As the small King Kong series with the main performance, Redmi Note 11T Pro+ has come up with a sincere three-piece flagship performance of Dimensity 8100+LPDDR5+UFS 3.1. After testing, we are also very satisfied with the release of performance. This configuration can meet your need of saying goodbye to stuttering.
In terms of games, we also selected three popular mainstream games for testing.
1. King’s Glory
The most popular mobile Moba game “Honor of Kings” supports ultra-high frame rate and ultra-high resolution. The game is played at the default highest image quality, with an average frame rate of 90.11 FPS. It can be said that the whole process runs smoothly at full frame.
At the same time, the body temperature is not high. Usually, the heat dissipation module of Redmi Note 11T Pro+ metal material can also play a certain role in heat dissipation, so a lot of heat is gathered near the rear camera, and the highest point is only 38.1 ℃.
2. Peace Elite
“Peace Elite” can only open the 60-frame mode under smooth picture quality. Considering the high frame rate requirements of this game, we tested it under this picture quality.
The average frame rate throughout the test is 59.79 FPS, there are certain fluctuations, but the impact is not large. It can still be said that the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ can meet the smooth full-frame operation under this picture quality.
Although it is only a smooth image quality + 60 frame mode, at this time, the performance load of “Peace Elite” is still higher than that of “Honor of Kings”. After the test, the temperature of the back cover of the phone was also higher, reaching 40.1°C.
“Genshin Impact” can be said to be one of the most configuration-intensive games in the current mainstream mobile games. It is also best for testing performance under heavy loads for long periods.
The highest image quality +60 frame mode is tested according to a fixed test route. The performance scheduling strategy of Redmi Note 11T Pro+ for Genshin Impact is to lock 50 frames to run, and gradually reduce the frame rate upper limit according to the temperature. Therefore, in the second half of the test, “Genshin Impact” has been locked to run at 45 frames. The average frame rate of the whole process is about 46.07 FPS.
Because of the high load of “Genshin Impact”, the temperature distribution of the back cover has also changed to a certain extent. The thermal conductivity of the main camera area cannot keep up with the accumulation of heat in the SOC area, and the highest temperature appears on the right side of the rear camera, which is 43.7°C.
The Redmi Note 11T Pro+ uses a plastic back cover + a plastic middle frame, which naturally has weaker passive heat dissipation. In the face of a game with a heavy performance load such as “Genshin Impact”, it is better to reduce the picture quality or use the cooling back clip.
On the whole, Redmi Note 11T Pro+ has stronger overall performance and better energy efficiency ratio than Snapdragon 888, especially when facing moderately loaded games such as “Honor of Kings” and “Peace Elite”. While the frame rate is smooth and stable, the body will not be too hot. This configuration is the best choice for the flagship level.
The rear and main CMOS of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is GW1, which is an old player. But don’t think that its quality is very poor. As a 64-megapixel predecessor, it has a 1/1.72″ outsole. Compared with the common mid-range OV64B and GW3 players, the size advantage can still ensure that it has the same level. The best 64-megapixel imaging in the world.
The colors are bright and the picture is pure. This is the consistent imaging style of the GW1, which has also been brought into the Redmi Note 11T Pro+. The resolution of 64 Megapixels is also very good after the four-in-one pixel, and more details can be recorded when shooting flowers, trees, and buildings.Taking pictures at night, the performance of the GW1 is also very good whether it is automatic mode straight out or special night scene mode. Straight out is more in line with what the human eye sees, while the night scene mode is to brighten + improve color, reduce overexposure and dead black, and make the image look better.
In addition to the main camera, the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ also has an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. The advantages and disadvantages are very obvious. The large viewing angle is convenient for recording large buildings and scenes, and the lower pixels lead to general resolution. It also supports night scene mode, and it is recommended to only take pictures in night scene mode at night.
The 2-megapixel macro lens is more of a supplement to meet the needs of taking pictures in some specific scenes. In the case of sufficient lighting, the quality of the photos can still be seen.
The battery capacity of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is only 4400mAh. With the surging P1 chip and 120W super-fast charging, it can be said that the charging speed is also on par with its flagship.
To test the charging speed, it only takes 20 minutes to start charging from 1%, and the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ can be fully revived. The charging power for the first 15 minutes is maintained at more than 40W, the blood recovery is 58% in 10 minutes, and the charging is quite fast.
The 120W superfast charge will also cause a lot of heat. After charging is completed, check the temperature of the body, and the temperature of the charging IC area under the rear camera module reaches 42.4°C. If the charging acceleration mode is turned on, you should also pay attention to the placement of the fuselage to avoid excessive heat accumulation and affect the charging speed.
In terms of battery life, using the battery dog to continuously run 3D games, videos, web pages, and other test scenarios, the final full battery life of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is 8 hours and 51 minutes.
You must know that this is a 4400mAh battery. Under the comprehensive scheduling optimization of the Dimensity 8100, the energy efficiency ratio God U+, the Redmi Note 11T Pro+, and the 5000mAh large battery model have almost the same battery life performance.
In the past, our perception of the Redmi Note series has always been a mid-end high-end product in the thousand-yuan range.
As last year’s two products achieved flagship-level configuration in chips and peripherals respectively, today’s thousand-yuan Little King Kong is breaking through the mid-range ceiling step by step and moving closer to the flagship.
Today, the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ we got can be said to be the thousand yuan diamond that is closest to the flagship. Dimensity 8100 God U+LPDDR5+UFS 3.1 flagship three kits, a top-level LCD screen certified by DisplayMate A+ for the first time, as well as the flagship P1 chip and 120W fairy second charge. It is only one step away from the real flagship.
After our tests, the screen, performance, and charging of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ all made our eyes shine.
We were deeply impressed by the extremely accurate color screen, the smooth full-frame and calm SOC of mainstream games, and the fast and fast charging in less than 20 minutes.
In the thousand-yuan range of 1,000 yuan to 2,000 yuan, the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ has indeed achieved the level of the flagship, allowing users to experience the smoothness of the flagship performance. And such as taking pictures, Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is not bad, at least better than the same mobile phone.
Although GW1 is an old CMOS, you must know that this is the standard configuration of the cost-effective flagship, so it still has an advantage in performance. The Redmi Note 11T Pro+’s photography is better than its peers, and the overall color and purity are much better in both day and night scenes.
The ancestral three-dimensional dual Yang, infrared, X-axis motor, full-featured NFC, etc. can not be faulted. There’s even a return of the 3.5mm audio interface this time around.
If you pursue the limit, the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ can satisfy your flagship dream with the least price; and if you pursue cost-effectiveness, the Redmi Note 11T Pro only has a slightly lower charging power, but it is not bad in other aspects and has a more affordable price.
Starting at 1699 yuan, the Redmi Note 11T Pro series is a blockbuster. Your favorite LCD screen, flagship performance, and flagship fast charging are all available, it depends on whether you accept the trick or not.
