The photo block of the Redmi Note 11 Pro + may be arranged slightly differently from that of the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, it has the same modules. The main one, with its 108 megapixel sensor and wide-angle optics, is complemented by an ultra-wide-angle module (8 Mpx sensor) and a macro module (2 Mpx).
Main module: 108 MP, f/1.9, eq. 26mm
As always, the 108 Mpx module with which the Redmi Note 11 Pro + 5G is equipped is associated with the pixel bindingcombining here nine pixels in one to deliver shots in 12 Mpx, potentially brighter and above all lighter to store.
The quality of the images captured during the day is not bad, but it is clear that it is not superior to that of the Redmi Note 11 Pro “just short”. The sharpness is substantially identical there and, as we can see on our colored dot chart, the processing of small elements sometimes poses a problem for the smartphone. Compared to the Mi 11i from the same manufacturer, and comparable in terms of price, the Redmi Note 11 Pro concedes a lower level of detail, which can be seen in particular on the cartography. There is also a lack of sharpness on the periphery of the image.
The gap widens in the exercise of nocturnal photography. The smoothing is much more present, the colors fade and the shot turns out to be quite unusable in the end. Surprisingly, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G chooses a completely different treatment and prefers digital noise to this excessive smoothing, which results in a more satisfactory image.
108 MP mode
Switching to 108 Mpx mode reflects the efficiency of the software processing operated by Xiaomi: without it, the image clearly lacks sharpness and is of little interest to the user.
Ultra wide-angle module: 8 Mpx, f/2.2
The ultra wide-angle module of the Redmi Note 11 displays a definition limited to 8 Mpx, which augurs shots lacking a little precision. This is indeed the case here, but we see against the Find X5 Lite that the treatment operated remains soft and that it allows – when you do not zoom in too much in the image – to obtain a pleasing rendering to the eye . Pay attention to the distortion which is not or hardly corrected, and which deforms the periphery of the image.
These considerations apply to daytime shots, because the night blurs the shots almost entirely. The software processing fails to isolate all the elements of our scene, which is practically unreadable. You will have understood it: at night, it is better to favor the wide-angle and, if you can sufficiently stabilize your smartphone (and capture fixed elements), use the night mode offered as an option.
Front module, portrait and video mode
The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G + houses exactly the same 16 Mpx (f / 2.4) front module on the front. It also allows you to take decent selfies, especially in bright light. The level of detail is very correct, but be careful to deactivate the beauty filters if you want a natural rendering, that is to say not too smooth. The clipping operated by the portrait mode, for selfies or photos of others, works rather well despite some hiccups related to rebellious hair.
Unlike the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, the Pro+ model is capable of filming up to 4K at 30 fps. It also allows you to shoot up to 60 fps in Full HD. Few options are available, but we retain the Vlog function for pre-cut creative montages that allow less experienced videographers to create small clips without difficulty. Beauty filters are also available in video mode.
