The design of Infinix Note 11 Pro can be described in few words as modern, simple and attractive. It offers nothing futuristic. The colours of its rear panel blend nicely, leaving a good impression. On the back, you'll also notice the large camera module. The panel itself is made of plastic, it's nice to touch and looks quality.
The dimensions of the Infinix Note 11 Pro are standard for modern understandings. Its weight is almost 210 grams, which puts it in the heavy devices category. However, expect a device that you can hold comfortably in your hands.
In the market, you will come across Infinix Note 11 Pro in three colours - grey, sky blue and dark green. The bezels around its screen are thick, but this only suggests that it belongs to the budget class.
The side-mounted fingerprint scanner will please you with its speed and precision. On the left are positioned slots for two nano-SIM cards and a microSD memory card.
One of the main advantages of the device is the huge display. It has a diagonal of 6.95 inches and is an IPS LCD. Its resolution is 2460 x 1080 pixels and the refresh rate is 120 Hz. The aspect ratio is cinematic - 20.5:9. With these specs, the Infinix Note 11 Pro's screen is shaping up to be a real source of entertainment. Its diagonal is the same as the flagship Samsung Note 20 Ultra. However, the quality differs. For example, the maximum brightness is only 470 nits and inferior to that of a number of competitors.
Beneath the beautiful exterior of the Infinix Note 11 Pro lies a MediaTek Helio G96 processor. Manufactured using 12nm technology, it has 8 cores. Two of them are Cortex-A76 clocked at 2.05 GHz and the remaining six are Cortex-A55 clocked at 2.0 GHz. The graphics is assigned to a Mali-G57 MC2 accelerator.
The smartphone comes in a single configuration - with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. There is a storage expansion slot at the user's discretion. Infinix has provided a virtual RAM option that allows you to allocate up to 3 GB of internal storage.
While the processor is not among the most powerful in the market, the Infinix Note 11 Pro pleases with its performance. The device handles a variety of games and applications. It factory comes with XOS for Android, which has recently been upgraded to XOS 10.
We must mention here that the interface of the smartphone is different from pure Android. The changes are noticeable right with the unlock screen.
One of the unusual things about the Infinix Note 11 Pro is the set of cameras. The main lens on the rear panel is 64-megapixel and is complemented by a 13-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. The third module is 2-megapixel and serves to create shots with a bokeh effect. On the front panel, there is a 16-megapixel camera.
The quad LED flash contributes to the good quality of the main camera shots. It is decent for a budget device, but of course, it could have been higher. There is a lot to be desired from the detail. The colours, however, please with naturalness.
By default, the main camera of the Infinix Note 11 Pro works in 16 MP mode. This way, it will fill the storage slower.
Photos with the telephoto lens appear with darker colors. There's no blur, which is good. When shooting in the dark hours of the day, you can use the Super Night mode. It improves the results and will surprise you with its effectiveness.
As for the video, with the Infinix Note 11 Pro you can shoot at resolutions up to 1440 pixels.
The smartphone has a typical battery capacity for this class of phones - 5000 mAh. Given the not too power-consuming processor, you can count on good autonomous work. 100% battery charge will provide you with about 18 hours of continuous operation or 14.5 hours of watching videos.
The manufacturer has provided Super Charge fast charging technology with 33 W of power. It takes 30 minutes to replenish 25% of the battery charge. A full recharge takes just over 2 hours.
The Infinix Note 11 Pro is for you if you are looking for a modern device with a large and 120 Hz refresh rate. Its processor delivers high performance and the cameras delight with their quality. The telephoto zoom lens deserves special mention.
