Xiaomi is revealing the global variation of its Mi 11 flagship phone today after an earlier release in China. No wild waterfall screens or sci-fi wireless charging here– this gadget is quite in keeping with the Mi series’ MO of providing high specifications at a competitive rate.
The Mi 11 has a Snapdragon 888 processor, making it the first phone to release with Qualcomm’s newest high-end chip (though Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series beat it to market outside China). The 888 has actually 5G connection integrated in, obviously, and the phone has 8GB of RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of storage.
The screen appears to be the very same panel– or really similar– to what’s found in the Galaxy S21 Ultra. It’s a slightly curved 6.8-inch 1440 p OLED with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and peak brightness of 1,500 nits, matching Samsung’s phone spec-for-spec. I don’t have the S21 Ultra to compare side-by-side, but I can inform you that the Mi 11’s screen is very great.
The Mi 11 has a 108- megapixel main video camera backed by a 13- megapixel ultrawide and a 5-megapixel “telemacro” camera. The selfie video camera is 20 megapixels and tucked inside a little holepunch cutout at the top left of the screen.
The Mi 11 also includes reverse cordless charging at up to 10 W. It runs MIUI 12, based on Android11
Xiaomi hasn’t provided a complete list of areas or launch dates just yet, however states the Mi 11 will be priced at EUR749(~$900) for the 8GB/128 GB model. XDA Designers keeps in mind the 8GB/256 GB model will retail for EUR799(~$960). Stay tuned for a complete review.
