The realme 11 brings a host of features that set it apart from the crowd. Here are the key selling points that make it an enticing choice:

67W SUPERVOOC Fast Charging & 5,000 mAh Large Battery

This innovation allows the user the charge the handset from 0% to 50% in only 17 minutes, using the provided SUPERVOOC travel charger.

MediaTek Helio G99 Gaming Chipset

For gamers, the MediaTek Helio G99 gaming chipset guarantees a seamless and responsive gaming experience. The octa-core CPU, featuring a combination of Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 cores, ensures smooth multitasking and efficient performance.

realme 11's set of internal hardware gives the device an AnTutu Benchmark Score of 401,483, which is fairly decent for a new handset in this price bracket.

6.4-inch FHD+ SuperAMOLED Display with 90Hz Refresh Rate

Compared to other handsets in this price echelon, realme 11 truly delivers an elevated visual treat with its 6.4-inch FHD+ SuperAMOLED display boasting up to 90Hz refresh rate. The 1080 x 2400 pixel resolution, 1000 nits peak brightness, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection combine to deliver an immersive viewing experience.

The high refresh rate makes swiping across the screen and navigating the interface feel more buttery smooth. This also enables high-frame-rate gaming on some popular titles.

Design and Build

With dimensions measuring 159.9 x 73.3 x 8 mm and weighing 178 grams, the realme 11 strikes a balance between size and portability. The build incorporates Gorilla Glass 5 for the front, and a polycarbonate mid-frame and back panel, making the phone both light and durable. The device is available in two colorways – Dark Glory and Glory Gold – adding a touch of elegance.

Of the two colorways, Dark Glory is the one I recommend. It's a mood, I think.

Memory and Storage

realme 11 doesn't compromise on internal hardware, offering 8GB RAM with the flexibility of RAM expansion up to another 8GB. The internal storage stands at a rather spacious 256GB UFS 2.2, which can be further augmented using the dedicated microSDXC card slot, eliminating the need to sacrifice Dual SIM capability in the process.

Imaging Capabilities

realme 11's camera setup is all about delivering a versatile and detailed photography experience. On the back, it features a Dual Main Camera system, consisting of a powerful 108 MP ProLight Camera with a wide f/1.8 aperture and a 25mm lens, capturing sharp and clear images. Alongside, a 2 MP Depth Sensor with an f/2.4 aperture adds depth to photos, especially portrait shots, giving them dimension via background blur.

The camera comes packed with useful features like LED flash for better lighting, HDR for improved dynamic range, and a panorama mode for capturing sweeping landscapes. Moreover, the realme 11 can record 1080p and 30 frames per second, which is good enough for vlogging, especially for newbies. 

In front, the 16MP Selfie Camera with an f/2.5 aperture delivers crisp and vibrant self-portraits. It also includes HDR and panorama modes, extending creative options to front-facing photography. The Selfie Camera matches the main camera's video recording quality, capable of capturing moments at 1080p and 30fps, which can also be relied on for shooting TikTok clips.

Sound and Communication

realme 11 delivers decent audio experience with its loudspeaker, 3.5mm jack - which is has become a rarity on smartphones these days, and support for 24-bit/192kHz audio. 

On the communication front, it features 4G LTE-A connectivity, dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual standby), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.2, and USB Type-C 2.0 with OTG support.

Security Features and Sensors

Equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner - which can be conveniently accessed using the thumb when you're holding the handset - and facial recognition technology, realme 11 ensures secure unlocking. These come on top of the usual pattern and passcode legacy unlock methods.

An array of sensors, including accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass, enhances the overall user experience, especially when playing some popular gaming titles which require the use of these sensors.
