The Redmi Note 11 Pro, just like the Note 11 Pro 5G, borrows its AMOLED panel from the Note 10 Pro. It's a 6.67-inch Samsung-made AMOLED screen of extended Full HD resolution and 120Hz refresh rate support. It comes with Gorilla Glass 5 protection and has an impressively tiny punch-hole around the top.
The OLED panel is flat, and its exact resolution is 1,080 x 2,400 pixels or 395ppi - up to par with the competition. It supports a 120Hz refresh rate and DCI-P3 color space. There is no official mention of HDR10 video support.
The first order of business is our traditional display measurements, and they turned out to be identical to the Note 11 Pro 5G's, which was to be expected as the screens are identical.
The Note 11 Pro's display has a typical maximum brightness of 470 nits, but it can be much brighter when the automatic sunlight boost kicks in - about 750 nits. These numbers match, or even exceed Xiaomi's official specs.
Finally, the minimum brightness at point white we measured was just 2.4 nits - the same as on the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G.

The Redmi Note 11 Pro's display, just like the Redmi Note 10 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, supports DCI-P3 wide color space. The display's settings offer three different color models - Vivid (default, DCI-P3), Saturated (DCI-P3 with saturation boost), and Standard (sRGB). You can tweak the color temperature for each mode.
The default Vivid option is tuned to reproduce DCI-P3 faithfully, and we found it to be fairly accurate, excluding the slightly bluish-white and gray colors. Standard, on the other hand, has a perfect accuracy to sRGB, including the white and gray hues.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro display supports 60Hz (Standard) and 120Hz (Maximum) refresh rates; both are static options. The default 120Hz option always uses 120Hz and reverts to 60Hz only for video playback and across apps that cannot support higher than 60Hz.
The GPU of the Redmi Note 11 Pro is rather weak, and even if high refresh gaming is theoretically possible, we doubt you will be able to run games at higher than 60fps even on lower graphics settings.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro has Widevine L1 DRM support out of the box, and it can stream Full HD content from all popular video services. There is no HDR10 video support on the phone HDR video streaming is out of the question.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, like many of the previous Note models, is powered by a large 5,000mAh battery. The phone employs the Helio G96 chipset by MediaTek, which is built on a 12nm manufacturing process compared to the 6nm Snapdragon 695 5G chip inside the Note 11 Pro 5G model. We still expect good battery scores, just not as good as the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G's.
So, the Redmi Note 11 Pro indeed posted a rather good endurance rating of 100 hours, 15 hours less than the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 10 Pro.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro sure aced the talk time test, and did good on the on-screen tests, but not as good as the 5G model - it scored 2 hours less on the web and nearly 6 hours less on video playback.
All test results shown are achieved under the highest screen refresh rate mode. You can adjust the endurance rating formula manually so it matches better your own usage in our all-time battery test results chart where you can also find all phones we've tested.
The upgraded 67W Mi Fast Charging since the Redmi Note 10 Pro is a truly welcome change and makes the whole charging experience feel flagship-like. Redmi Note 10 Pro maxed out at 33W charging, which is still plenty fast, but 67W is one of those upgrades a sequel needs.
We tested the Note 11 Pro with the bundled 67W power adapter, and the charging times are outstanding. It takes the battery from 0% to 45% in merely 15 minutes, while 30 minutes will give you a 78% battery charge.
Higher is better
A full charge requires just 48 minutes on the 67W charger, which is incredibly fast for a lower mid-range smartphone.
Lower is better
There is no wireless charging on the Redmi Note 11 Pro. There is no reverse wired charging available either.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro has two symmetrically placed speakers, just like the 5G model. They sit behind grills on the top and bottom sides. Of course, the speaker above the screen has two outlets - one front-facing and one top-firing.
While the top speaker, which also acts as an earpiece, is slightly quieter than the bottom one, the sound is incredibly balanced and rich when listening and/or watching media in either portrait or landscape orientation. So, kudos to Xiaomi for tuning the two pieces rather great.
So, the Redmi Note 11 Pro scored a Very Good mark on our loudness test, just like the Note 11 Pro 5G and the Note 10 Pro.
The sound quality is nearly identical to the Redmi Note 10 Pro, but not as good as the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. While the 5G model offered an improved thump in the lows, we find it lacking in the vanilla version. Still, we can hear good mid and high tones, and there is some minor bass available, so we'd say the audio quality is somewhere between Good and Very Good.
There is no Dolby Atmos enhancement on the Redmi Note 11 Pro, as opposed to the 5G version.
Use the Playback controls to listen to the phone sample recordings (best use headphones). We measure the average loudness of the speakers in LUFS. A lower absolute value means a louder sound. A look at the frequency response chart will tell you how far off the ideal "0db" flat line is the reproduction of the bass, treble, and mid frequencies. You can add more phones to compare how they differ. The scores and ratings are not comparable with our older loudspeaker test. Learn more about how we test here.
