The M11 is smaller and better designed (in my opinion), making it easier to carry and keep in smaller spaces. It also features a chipset that supports 4G technology and shares the same RAM as the Camon 16.

The M11 also offers the same onboard storage, while offering more external memory with it. It has the Android 10 OS taking care of business on the software front and is backed by a powerful 5,000mAh battery.
