The Realme 11 5G has flat side rails with the SIM card slot on the left and the volume buttons, fingerprint sensor/power button on the right. The bottom has a USB Type-C charging port, speaker grill, microphone, and 3.5mm audio jack. The weight of the mobile phone is 190g, which feels quite light in the hand. The side rails don’t leave too many fingerprints, especially the Honor Gold color version.

The Realme 11 5G features a 6.72-inch full HD+ IPS display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a peak brightness of 680 nits. In the short time I’ve been using it, I’ve found the display to be very bright.

The Realme 11 5G is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 6100+ 5G SoC, which seems to handle multiple apps simultaneously pretty well. On the back of the phone is a circular camera module that protrudes slightly. It comes with a dual camera setup consisting of a 108-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel portrait camera, but no ultra-wide-angle camera. The camera interface does feel familiar with the usual options in the menus. The smartphone has a 16-megapixel front-facing camera that can take decent photos in moderate lighting.

Prices start at Rs. 18,999, the Realme 11 5G seems to be priced on the higher side, as some competitors do offer OLED displays and in-display fingerprint sensors in this segment. What are your thoughts on the 11 5G? Let us know in the comments.
