Realme launched budget smartphones like the Realme Narzo N55, Realme C55 and Realme Narzo N53, which are doing good. Now, Realme is launching its most popular number series, the Realme 11 Pro+ 5G and the Realme 11 Pro 5G in Nepal. The number series is what made Realme what they are now. They come with beautiful design, flagship-level performance and killer cameras at a reasonable price.
However, Realme is not getting that much attention in its number series, lately, even though it released Realme 10 Pro and Pro+ around seven months ago. Soon, it is releasing the 11 Pro and Pro+.

Design and display
The Realme 11 Pro+ 5G is completely different to the Realme 10 Pro+ launched last year. Notably, the standout feature of the phone is its design, which has been crafted by Matteo Mennoto, a former designer at Gucci. The premium vegan leather finish in the back has brought many in awe. Its design incorporates Milan’s urban fashion aesthetic.
The phone is available in three colours; sunrise beige, oasis green and astral black. The first two colours are available in the vegan leather finish whereas the astral black colour has a simple matte finish.
The 11 Pro+’s sunrise beige is sure to be everyone’s favourite with the golden and white colour combination. On the back, there is a circular camera module with a black and matte gold finish. On the top, there is a zipper-like stitching of white and golden colour that adds to its aesthetic value. The frame is also in golden colour, which blends along with the slightly curved display. The other colour oasis green is also the same with green replacing white and gold. Both the frame and back are made up of plastic.
The front of the 11 Pro+, features a stunning AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a curved design for an immersive viewing experience. With a screen size of 6.7 inches and a resolution of 2412×1080 (FHD+), the display offers vibrant and sharp visuals.
The screen-to-body ratio of 93.65 per cent maximises the display area for an edge-to-edge view. With a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 and a 100 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut, the display delivers rich and vivid colours with excellent contrast. The display is protected by 0.65mm double-reinforced glass.
Performance and storage
The Realme 11 Pro+ has a MediaTek Dimensity 7050 chipset built on a 6nm architecture. Its octa-core CPU consists of two Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.6 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz, providing a balance of performance and efficiency. The Mali-G68 GPU handles the graphics. It runs on Realme UI 4.0, which is based on Android 13.
The overall performance of the 11 Pro+ is good. But it is worth noting that the software experience may not be suitable for everyone’s preferences. Since Realme is trying to cut the price, the system is full of bloatware and preinstalled apps. This particular aspect of the phone has been criticised by many. Despite the device’s attractive design and emphasis on the camera, many feel Realme could have made improvements in this area.
The phone is available in two RAM options 8GB and 12GB, which are paired with one storage option of 256GB.
The Realme 11 Pro+ includes a rear camera setup, including a Samsung ISOCELL HP3 SuperZoom camera with a whopping 200MP resolution. It features optical image stabilisation (OIS) for improved stability. In addition to the SuperZoom camera, it includes an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2MP macro camera that allows you to focus as close as 4cm.
It offers a wide range of photography functions, including a 200MP mode, auto-zoom, street photography mode, moon mode, starry mode pro, super nightscape, panorama, professional mode, portrait mode, HDR, AI scene recognition, AI beauty, filters, text scanner, portrait distortion correction, one take, and supergroup portrait.
It also provides various video recording functions like dual-view video, slow motion, time-lapse, cinema mode, AI video tracking, starry time-lapse video, and tilt-shift time-lapse video. It supports 4K/30fps, 1080P/30fps/60fps, and 720P/30fps/60fps video recording, as well as 1080P/120fps and 720P/120fps slow motion.
The Realme 11 Pro+ is equipped with a 32MP front camera that enables you to capture stunning self-portraits. The front camera functions include portrait mode, pano (panorama) mode, ultra-wide angle mode, AI beauty, face recognition, filters for creative effects, super nightscape for improved low-light selfies, and AI scene recognition for optimised settings based on the scene. The front camera supports 1080P/30fps and 720P/30fps video recording, allowing you to record high-quality videos with the front camera.
