We don’t review Infinix phones too often, mostly due to the brand’s only regional popularity. In certain markets, particularly in Africa and South Asia, Infinix has its fair share of market pull.
To provide additional context, Infinix is one of the brands the Chinese Transsion Holding sells phones under. Other major ones include Tecno and Itel. Also, Oraimo for accessories and Carlcare for after-sales service. But, we digress.
The point is that the Infinix Note 11 Pro we have for review today might not be easy to acquire in many places but could very well be a great value, if it’s available in your market.
Full disclosure, we’ve had access to Infinix Note 10 Pro as well, but since it’s already superseded by the Note 11 Pro, we skipped the review altogether. Still, we will be referencing it occasionally throughout the review.

The Infinix Note 11 Pro is a budget phone by design but does have some intriguing specs highlights like a huge 6.95-inch IPS LCD with 120Hz refresh rate, stereo speakers, a big 5,000 mAh battery with 33W charging and a triple camera setup, with a dedicated telephoto snapper. Intriguing stuff all around.
Before we get to any of that, though, let’s start with a quick unboxing and a few comments on the accessory package.
The Infinix Note 11 Pro comes in a two-piece cardboard box. It is thick and sturdy and includes cardboard cradles and separators on the inside, holding everything securely in place. The box itself is bright green, which definitely stands out on a shelf.
In terms of accessories, you do get a nice transparent TPU case, as well as a glass screen protector. Also in the box – a 33W fast charger, rated for 5v@3A and 10V@3.3A. We’ve seen this exact charger bundled with other Infinix devices before. There is a USB Type-A to Type-C cable in the box, as well, and that’s about it. Notably, there are no earbuds included in the box, unlike previous models. In fact, even the Infinix Note 10 Pro has them. Not that they are particularly special, but still a bit of added value.
