After launching the Redmi Note 11T,  Redmi Note 11T Pro, and 11T Pro Plus on Tuesday (24), Xiaomi also announced a renamed version of the Redmi Note 10 5G that brings notable changes to the internal hardware, sharing some features of the model announced in the first quarter of the year.

In addition to the specifications, the company also kept the design with a hole at the top of the display and a vertically aligned camera block. In short, this relaunch makes no sense and is characterized as “more of the same”.

Featuring a design similar to other models in the Redmi Note 11 line, the SE version displays on its front a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with FHD+ resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels) and an adaptive refresh rate that varies between 30 Hz and 90 Hz, a feature that is also present in other mid-range smartphones and is not exclusive to this model.

On the back, the device features a triple set of cameras that includes a main lens with a resolution of 48 MP (f/1.79), 2 MP depth sensor, and 2 MP macro; the selfie camera has 8 MP and f/2.0 aperture.

Moving on to the internal hardware, the Note 11 SE uses the MediaTek Dimensity 700 platform — up to 2.2 GHz octa-core with 7 nanometer lithography — in partnership with the Mali-G57 GPU, 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM on the LPDDR4X standard and internal storage in UFS 2.2 format.

Other highlights of the device include a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging and USB Type-C input. In terms of connectivity, the phone has a 3.5 mm P2 headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.1, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, and 5G network support.
