Infinix has unveiled the latest generation of its Note series – the Infinix Note 11 and Infinix Note 11 Pro. If you are eager to know the latest phones in terms of specifications, then this article will reveal all you need to know. Though the phones are yet to hit the market, it is worth knowing what they both entail.
Just like their predecessor (the Infinix Note 10 Pro), the new-gen Note series has a 6.95-inch display. The only difference is that their refresh rate has been increased from 90Hz to 120Hz. The touch sampling rate is still at 180Hz.
The display is an IPS LCD panel with 1080 x 2460 pixel resolution – which is the same as before. But this latest Note series has a new chipset powering it – the Helio G69 by MediaTek. This chip has a pair of Cortex-A76 CPU cores like its predecessor (the G95) and our testing shows that it has an edge in performance.
There was a downgrade of the GPU from a Mali-G76 MC4 to a G57 MC2 and that shows in testing. There is some hope that the Infinix Note 11 series will perform better than other G96-powered phones thanks to the 9 layers of graphene film that help keep the chipset cool.
RAM and Storage
The Infinix Note 11 Pro comes with a higher base memory capacity (8GB RAM and 128GB storage). The RAM can be extended further, as the new XOS 10 software (based on Android 11) can add 3GB of virtual RAM for the UFS2.2 storage. There is also an Infinix Write Booster that accelerates writing speed.
The 64MP rear camera of the Note 11 series is now accompanied by a 13MP telephoto module. While it advertises 30x maximum zoom (digital, of course), the actual optical magnification is 2x. Also, the 8MP ultra-wide camera of the previous model has gone missing – there’s no ultra-wide at all here, just a 2MP depth sensor.
This is one of the sections where the Infinix Note 11 differs from the Infinix Note 11 Pro. It has a 50MP main camera and a 2MP telephoto lens according to the press release. Both phones feature a 16MP selfie camera on the front.
Besides the camera, the Pro model also stands out with stereo speakers (top and bottom), which are part of what Infinix calls a “Digital Theater System”. But if you want a big screen, Infinix has prepared the phones to easily cast images and video (including screen mirroring) to TVs and laptops. If you want to keep it small instead, there is a 3.5 mm headphone jack (with an FM radio receiver).
The Infinix Note 11 Pro has a 5000mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging over USB-C, just like its predecessor. The battery is designed to survive 800 charge cycles without noticeable degradation in capacity – this is powered by some TUV Rheinland-approved charging tech. The power adapter is included in the retail box, plus a transparent silicone case and a glass screen protector.
