Today, Infinix launched two new phones in India – Note 11 & Note 11S. We have already talked about the Infinix Note 11 in our previous article, so you can check that out. Anyways, in this article, we will be talking about the Infinix Note 11S. While an AMOLED panel was one of the main USPs of the Note 11, the Note 11S focuses more on the performance part. Infinix has launched this phone as a gaming-centric device, so it has specs such as Helio G96 SOC, a high-refresh-rate display, gaming-centric software features, etc.
Design-wise, this phone does not look much different than the Infinis Note 11 because there is a similar polycarbonate build with a matte finish on the back & a rectangular camera module. Unlike the Note 11, however, there aren’t flat sides on this phone. So, the Note 11S does not look as premium as the Note 11, even if it is more expensive than that phone. On the front, there is a display with a hole punch cutout in the middle. If you recall, the Note 11 has a waterdrop notch.
The main reason for that is the Infinix Note 11S has an FHD+ LCD on the front, not an AMOLED. Now, despite being an LCD, the display has a high refresh rate of 120Hz, so that’s a good thing. It is also a bigger display than on the Note 11 at 6.95-inches.
Under the hood, there is the Helio G96 SOC which is a pretty powerful chip for budget phones. This SOC has an octa-core CPU with Cortex-A76 cores for performance. Paired with this SOC is 6GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB UFS 2.2 storage.
The camera setup remains unchanged from the Note 11. So, there is a similar 50MP primary shooter with an f/1.6 aperture and two 2MP sensors. For selfies, the phone gets a 16MP camera.
Infinix Note 11S has the same 5,000mAh battery as well and 33W fast charging support. Finally, there is a stereo speaker setup, and Android 11-based XOS 10 runs out of the box.
Just like Note 11, ₹12,999 is the introductory pricing of Note 11S, so that means after initial sales, the price will be increased. The phone will be available to buy on Flipkart starting December 20.
