Redmi Note 11 Pro vs Tecno CAMON 19 Pro: Tecno has recently launched its camera-centric smartphone the CAMON 19 Pro. Which comes with a unique RGBW sensor that enhances the day and night photography experience. But how does it compare to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro that was released earlier this year?
In this comparison post, both smartphones will go head-to-head. While it is true that both phones share some similarities, there are also some differences to take note of before deciding on which to buy. So let’s get started.
|Specifications||Tecno CAMON 19 Pro 4G||Redmi Note 11 Pro|
|Display||6.78-inch, 120Hz||6.67-inch, 120Hz|
|Back Camera||64 + 50 + 2MP||108 + 8 + 2 + 2MP|
|Chipset||Helio G96||Helio G96|
|Software||Android 12||Android 11|
Display and Durability
Talking of display, the Redmi Note 11 Pro is the favourite. It has a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED touchscreen with a 120Hz refresh rate system. While the Tecno CAMON 19 Pro has a slightly bigger display and measures a 6.8-inch FHD+ IPS LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate. Both screens are so smooth to operate because of the 120Hz refresh rate. However, the AMOLED display on the Redmi Note 11 Pro is brighter and more colourful making it a better choice.
Also, Xiaomi protected the Redmi Note 11 Pro’s screen with a gorilla glass 5. This means if the Tecno Camon 19 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro should fall from the same height, the Redmi Note 11 Pro has a higher survival chance. Thus, the display and durability favour the Redmi Note 11 Pro.
Now, this is where things start getting juicy. The truth is that both smartphones can take good pictures and make good videos. However, if you are to pick only one, I’d pick the Tecno Camon 19 Pro. Let me explain why. You see, over the years Tecno has so much improved when it comes to its camera hardware. And with the CAMON 19 Pro, Tecno introduced a new 64MP RGBW sensor in collaboration with Samsung.
This new set of hardware comes alongside the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Laser AF features. Which enhances your CAMON 19 Pro photography and videography experience both in daylight and nighttime. Those features are not available on the Redmi Note 11 Pro. Even though it comes with a 108MP main camera, alongside an 8MP ultrawide, 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro unit.
Selfie-wise, the Tecno CAMON 19 Pro has a 32MP camera. While the Redmi Note 11 Pro brings a 16MP selfie lens. The front cameras on both phones can record video in 1080p resolution. Sadly none of these two phones can record video in 4k resolution.
Performance | 5G | Configuration
These two smartphones have a similar performance. Both are powered by the MediaTek helio G96 4G chipset. But the storage configurations are different. The Tecno Camon 19 Pro has 8GB RAM + 128/256 GB storage. While the Redmi Note 11 Pro comes with 6/8 GB RAM + 64/128 GB storage.
In terms of software, both phones are a generation apart. The CAMON 19 Pro boots Android 12 out of the box with an anticipated upgrade to Android 13 in view. While the Redmi Note 11 Pro runs Android 11 with an upgrade to Android 12 and 13 in view. Tecno promised a year of a software upgrade for the CAMON 19 series.
Redmi Note 11 Pro vs Tecno CAMON 19 Pro: Battery
The Redmi Note 11 Pro vs Tecno CAMON 19 Pro have a 5,000 mAh battery capacity. However, the charging time is different. The CAMON 19 Pro has a 33W fast-charging system but the Redmi Note 11 Pro comes with a 67W super-fast charging technology.
Redmi Note 11 Pro vs Tecno CAMON 19 Pro: Price
The pricing of both smartphones is different because of the various configurations they come with. The Tecno CAMON 19 Pro is more expensive and that’s because it comes with a bigger storage capacity than the Redmi Note 11 Pro.
Redmi Note 11 Pro vs Tecno CAMON 19 Pro: Verdict
Both phones have their pros and cons. For someone who loves a quick-go camera with OIS and Laser AF features, alongside a bigger storage capacity, the Tecno Camon 19 Pro is the one to buy. While the Redmi Note 11 Pro with an AMOLED panel is better for media consumption.
