Last but not the least, the Redmi Note 11T 5G boasts a dual-camera setup consisting of a 50MP primary camera and 8MP Ultra-wide lens. This is a rather interesting camera setup.

The handset only uses a massive 50MP primary sensor and a modest 8MP wide-angle sensor with a 119° field of view. For selfies, the device boasts a 16MP front-facing camera.

Overall, the Redmi Note 11T 5G seems like a good package in the sub-20K price bracket. It has a snappy chipset, fluid 90Hz display and a big battery with fast-charging support. We will share our feedback on the handset's performance in the coming week once we have it for testing.
