The Mi 11X in many ways is a spiritual fan of the Redmi K20.
Xiaomi Mi 11X The Redmi K20, despite having a very high price tag, had created a lot of noise in India for the wrong reasons especially related to its price. It was the first time that the “Redmi” phone had broken the 20k bar but sadly, it couldn’t break the comments. The reaction of the fans, let’s just say, did not particularly inspire Xiaomi, so Manu Kumar Jain had to write an open letter to verify its price and at the same time announced that it would not show any ads that were changing into an ad. a product left only Redmi in the name. It became My phone in the end. That was 2019.
Xiaomi is one of the very few companies out there that is quick to learn, adaptable and in many cases, even more robust. It’s one of the very few companies out there that takes the answer seriously and, in most cases, doesn’t make the same mistake twice. To date, it has not launched a single Redmi “flag” in India. Instead, select those phones to suit the market. The Redmi K30 has been introduced as the Poco X2. The Redmi K40, similarly, has been introduced as the Mi 11X. Since the Poco X2 was a “Poco” phone, you could say that the Mi 11X in many ways is a spiritual fan of the Redmi K20.
Doing this serves a twofold purpose. Xiaomi no longer has to justify its pricing choice, for now at least, and it is helping to solidify the Mi brand in India – something it has been trying to do for a while until last year when it decided to change gears and fill up. throttle – although you can argue that it is coming again at a cost of reducing portfolio. Either way, that is the best topic left for another day. The reason I brought the Redmi K20 was because I really liked that phone and really liked the Mi 11X. It’s called Me, it’s called Redmi, it’s called Poco, it doesn’t really matter. But what I really like about it is that, although times have changed – the world is not the same place it was in 2019 – Xiaomi has not yet lost its ability to offer a lot of phones for very little money. Over time, it has become wise to relocate.
X marks the location
To say that the Mi 11X is loaded will be a statement below. From design to display, to processor, to battery, and even cameras specially designed to impress. In the spirit of all this indulgence, let’s quickly go through the text of this phone before getting into how it works in the real world.
You get a 6.67-inch E4 AMOLED display from Samsung. The panel has a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sample of 360Hz. It can reach a maximum of 1300 nits and play HDR10 + content. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and has a punch punch cut in the center.

Under the hood, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 system-on-chip with up to 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS3.1 storage. The 4,520mAh battery empowers the phone. There is 33W fast charging support. Out of the box, it uses MIUI 12 based on Android 11. Phone communication options include 5G (sub 6G: n77 / n78), Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6. It has two Hi-stereo speakers Res Audio and Dolby. Atmos.
At the back, it has three cameras: a 48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide-angle and another 5MP macro. On the front, it has a 20MP camera.
The phone has a back made of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Its outer frame is made of plastic. Contains a set of biometrics fingerprint reader. The phone is also limited by IP53 which makes it resistant to dust and splinters.
The Mi 11X starts at Rs 29,999 separately with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. A version with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will back you up for Rs 31,999.
X factor and what could be better
The design of the Mi 11X is a cross between the Mi 10T and the Redmi Note 10 Pro – both of the most advanced phones you can pull off – with a completely different two-stage rear camera assembly. Actually the two glass slabs are glued together with a plastic frame, and while this last option solves some controversy, I think it’s a little harder. The use of plastic helps Xiaomi to keep the price and weight of the phone. As a bonus, it makes it less slippery on the hands.
Keeping the phone “razor” thin and light is a careful choice of design. This phone is designed to be extremely efficient, not a weapon of mass destruction (something like the Mi 10T or Poco X3 Pro). In other words, the Mi 11X measures only 7.8 mm in diameter and weighs only 196 grams. The Mi 10T weighs more than 215 grams and weighs more than 9 mm. Very low size means, the Mi 11X is a phone that you can use for long hours with minimal pressure. As for the look and feel, there is no doubt that it can go to the toes easily very well.

However, if I were asked to make a nitpick, I would love it very much if Xiaomi did not choose to complete a black piano like the Mi 10T is the unit I have for review. I would choose the red version of the Redmi Note 10 Pro any day in this case. The other two Mi 11X colors – silver and white – are less resistant to smudges and fingerprints, though, too, the Redmi Note 10 Pro hides better. Speaking of which, the Mi 11X is dusty and resistant to splash with the official IP rating which is always a good thing to have.
While it’s good that Xiaomi has managed to pack two speakers – and a “real” stereo set – on the Mi 11X, as well as the IR Blaster, the headphone jack would have just made this thing a bit of a competition for everything else. this phone is simply the top one when it comes to media use.
