Display

Both smartphones are equipped with large FHD+ displays with 2400 x 1080 resolution. In addition, both can also deliver rich colors and deep blacks, thanks to the Super AMOLED screen on the realme GT Master Edition and AMOLED on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. Nonetheless, the Super AMOLED is more advanced, and it integrates touch-sensors and the actual screen in a single layer.

Moreover, both offer a 120Hz screen refresh rate for a buttery-smooth experience for apps and games. Both also have a 360Hz touch sampling rate, giving users a snappier experience when gaming or using applications.

In addition, the realme GT Master Edition is also equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. According to Corning , the Gorilla Glass 5 survives up to 1.2-meter waist-high drops onto hard, rough surfaces.

CPU and GPU

Powering these two smartphones are Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is equipped with Snapdragon 695 SoC with Adreno 619 GPU, while the realme GT Master Edition has Snapdragon 778G SoC with Adreno 642L GPU.

Looking at their SoCs’ AnTuTu 9 scores, the Snapdragon 695 SoC got 395429, while the Snapdragon 778G achieved 524,819. This suggests that the Snapdragon 778G on the realme GT Master Edition performs better. However, keep in mind that we can only determine the extent of their performance and thermals once we have both units for review.

RAM and Storage

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G has either 6GB or 8GB RAM, while the realme GT Master Edition comes only with 8GB. For the storage, the former has either 64GB or 128GB, while the latter has 128GB or 256GB. However, only the Xiaomi device supports expandable storage via microSD.

Cameras

For the cameras, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and realme GT Master Edition have triple rear cameras. However, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G has a higher resolution 108MP main camera versus realme GT Master Edition’s 64MP main shooter. Completing their cameras are 8MP (ultrawide) and 2MP (macro) sensors.

Meanwhile, the realme GT Master Edition advances with its 32MP front camera compared to the Xiaomi Redmi 11 Pro 5G’s 16MP.

Take note, though, that these numbers don’t always equate to quality. We will provide proof of which camera is better once we test both units for comparison.

Connectivity and Features

Both devices support dual-SIM with 5G, SatNavs, NFC, USB Type-C, and 3.5mm audio jack. Both also have fingerprint scanners but of different types and placements. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G has it on the side, while the realme GT Master Edition uses an in-display scanner.

However, the difference lies in Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G’s IR Blaster. But, at least the GT Master Edition has more advanced WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.

Moreover, for audio, the Xiaomi device is equipped with dual speakers, while the realme device has ultra-linear speakers with Hi-Res Audio certification.

For an added feature, Xiaomi also equips the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G with protection against splashes with its IP53 certification.

Battery

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G comes with a larger 5,000mAh battery, while the realme GT Master Edition only has 4,300mAh. More so, the former supports a slightly faster 67W charging, while the latter has 65W.

Which one to get? 

Both smartphones have their advantages, but most of the huge benefits go to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. It boasts a slightly larger display equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, a more powerful main shooter, expandable storage, a larger battery, IP53 rating, and more.

It’s still good to get the realme GT Master Edition, though, with its Super AMOLED display, larger storage option, hi-res audio certification, and higher resolution front camera for selfies.

We can’t compare them yet in terms of price as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G’s local pricing is yet to be announced. However, if it came cheaper, it would definitely be a plus.
