Despite their “budget” status, all the Note 11 models, apart from Note 11, sport a 108-megapixel (MP) main wide-angle camera. This camera uses Samsung HM2 sensor with 9-in-1 binning technology for high resolution and true-to-life details, according to Xiaomi.

The Note 11 uses a 50MP main wide-angle camera but has the same 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 2MP macro camera and 2MP depth-sensing camera as the Note 11 Pro and Note 11S. The Note 11 Pro 5G does not have the 2MP depth-sensing camera. In addition, apart from Note 11, all the other Note 11 models has a 16MP in-display front-facing camera.

All the Note 11 models also feature a 5,000mAh battery with the 11 Pro models supporting 67W wired turbo charging. The Note 11S and Note 11 support only 33W wired turbo charging.
