Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 11 Pro, and Note 11 Pro + and the more affordable Note 11 today at an event in China.

The two Pro devices are identical aside from one key difference – the Plus variant brings 120W fast charging, while the regular Pro has a bigger battery.

These two phones are the same on the outside. The front panel is a 6.67” AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate, and features a particularly small selfie camera punch-hole at just 2.96mm in diameter.

These are the first phone to be powered by Dimensity 920 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM and support for VC liquid cooling with 12600 mm² heat dissipation, fully covering the heat sources of the main device body.

MIUI 13 global roll out begins Q1 2022 – Check out list of Xiaomi devices getting it

Published

MIUI 13 logo

After the announcement in China last month, Xiaomi along with the Redmi Note 11 series introduced the MIUI 13 for the global markets. This doesn’t bring several features that were launched in China, but only finetunes some features that were already available with the MIUI 12.5 Enhanced. These include Faster storage, Faster background efficiency, Faster processing and Longer battery life.

MIUI 13 features

  • Liquid Storage on MIUI 13 reduces fragmentation and actively manages stored data, improving defragmentation efficiency by up to 60%. MIUI 13 retains read and write speeds up to 95%—giving users a “new” experience longer, and prolonging device lifespan.
  • MIUI 13’s Atomized Memory, an ultra-fine memory management method, brings RAM efficiency to a new level. It analyzes how apps use memory and divides a single app’s RAM usage processes into important and unimportant tasks. Then it closes all unimportant tasks, allowing apps to use memory only for what’s important to you right now, enabling you to run more apps without sacrificing performance.
  • MIUI 13 brings Focused Algorithms, which dynamically allocates system resources based on usage scenarios, making MIUI more fluid and responsive. Focused Algorithms prioritizes the active app above all others, allowing the CPU to focus on important tasks, giving you faster speeds and higher performance where and when you need it.
  • Smart Balance in MIUI 13 is designed to automatically find the balance between performance and power consumption, so you can get the power and speed you need to stay on the go. With Smart Balance, overall battery life can be extended by up to 10% in MIUI 13.
  • With all-new widgets, you can personalize the smartphones with convenient modules and notifications in the App Vault or on the home screen. MIUI 13 supports widgets of different sizes. With 2×1, 2×2, 2×3, 4×2, and 4×4 options at hand, users can fit more important information on a single widget and place widgets where they may not have fit before.

MIUI 13 Sidebar

  • Sidebar in MIUI 13 allows you to access all your favorite apps in floating windows with just a swipe—without leaving your current app. You can also customize the feature with up to 10 apps in the sidebar.
