The design of the Redmi Note 11S is a bit too bland. The plastic frame and back panel are well built and the phone is quite comfortable to hold. Xiaomi has gone for a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a pretty high peak brightness of up to a claimed 1000nits. This phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio G96 SoC. The Redmi Note 11S runs MIUI 13, but this version is still based on Android 11 and not 12.
