realme 11 Pro Plus showcases not just technological advancement, but it also intersects innovation with artistry with its intriguing blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal.

Inspired by the captivating charm of Milan, Italy, the premium vegan leather design offers a tactile experience that not only caters to practicality but serves as a fashion statement. Designed in collaboration of Matteo Menotto of Gucci and Bulgari fame, immediately captures attention with its vertical accent and a big, circle camera island – like the sun rising above the beautiful city of Milan.

It’s an experience that we can only describe as the joy of entering a brand new car and feeling its luxurious leather interiors. You could almost SMELL it.

2. Color-accurate display for creators

One cannot discuss the merits of this cutting-edge device without delving into its premium a 6.7-inch “Curved Vision Display” that delivers 100% P3 Color Gamut range. This is great for creatives who need visual color accuracy when working with images and videos.

On top of that, its AMOLED panel gets a bump in brightness over its predecessor, the realme 10 Pro+, to 950 nits at its peak. Combine that with HDR10+ support and you get a great entertainment device for consuming HDR and Dolby Vision content on services such as YouTube, Netflix, Disney Plus, and Amazon Prime.

120Hz display Netflix – realme 11 Pro+

You don’t have to worry about watching for prolonged periods of time, either. It carries TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification, and has a PWM Dimming rate of 2160Hz so it’s really easy on the eyes.

Not to be left out, mobile gamers are also in for a treat. The realme 11 Pro+ 5G has a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz and 1260Hz touch sampling rate for a more competitive gaming experience.

3. Flagship-level 200MP camera with OIS

In the realme numbered series, the Pro Plus always stood out with its cameras: the realme 9 Pro+ brought an amazing 50MP OIS camera to the table, and the realme 10 Pro+ doubled that with a 108MP sensor.

realme 11 Pro+ continues the trend, doubling it to 200MP. Under the hood is the Samsung ISOCELL HP3 sensor, which uses pixel binning technology to capture more light in dark environments and smart ISO multisampling to produce clear low-light images with minimal noise.

Combined with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), the system allows its users to capture sharp, clear images with limited light. The realme 11 Pro+ goes beyond this, adding a 4x zoom button. This is the highest so far in the realme numbered series, and shows the brand’s confidence in its camera capabilities.
