Before I present the best Redmi phones in Nigeria in 2022, I need to answer a few questions for those who are new to Redmi phones. The questions include: what is the Redmi phone brand? Who owns it? The Redmi brand is a sub-brand of Xiaomi for producing more affordable, feature-packed models. In summary, it is the budget arm of Xiaomi. As such, Redmi phones are more affordable than regular Xiaomi phones.
If you see a Xiaomi smartphone that you love, but find it beyond your budget, there is a solid Redmi phone that provides most of the value but at half the cost. Over the years, Redmi phones have been some of the most value-packed smartphones around. You would find a Redmi smartphone with more features and better specs than anything from competitors.
Overall Best Redmi Phone in Nigeria in 2022
The overall best Redmi phone in Nigeria till date this year is the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G. It is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G chipset (it is one of those phones that works with MTN 5G), has options of 6GB and 8GB RAM, as well as 128GB and 256GB storage. The rear camera is headlined by a 108MP sensor with support for 4k video capture, while for selfies, you have a 16MP snapper in a punch hole at the top of the screen. The 4500 mAh battery is supported by a super-fast 120W fast charging, so you can charge it from 0 to 100% in about 15 minutes.
What else does the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ offer you? The 6.67-inch display is a Super AMOLED panel with Gorilla Glass 5 protection, 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR10. This smartphone is also built to be IP53 dust and splash resistant. It has solid stereo speakers (some of the best you will hear in this class), an infra-red blaster for controlling your TV, fridge, a/c, radio set, etc, NFC, FM Radio.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G is available in three colour options: Mysterious Black, Forest Green, and Timeless Purple. The 3rd option is the most beautiful, as far as I am concerned, but everyone’s taste cannot be the same. How much is the Note 11 Pro+ 5G? Have a look:
