Xiaomi is preparing to launch the Mi 11 series in China this month. Exclusive information given to us indicates that the company will officially unveil the devices on December 29.
Prior to the launch, leaks regarding the Mi 11 were floating around on the internet frequently. Then, let's take a look at the possible specs, price and all the information we have so far.
These phones are definitely different, as the Mi 11 series is a flagship phone series and its launch coincides with the company's tenth anniversary.
Although Xiaomi has only confirmed that there is one phone in the series which is Mi 11.
However, we can expect the company to launch two other phones, Xiaomi Mi 11 andXiaomi Mi 11 Pro Just like the previous series.
In addition, there is also a rumored report of the possibility of a higher version which is Mi 11 Pro Plus.
Worth noting is that the latest flagship phone from Xiaomi currently being sold in China is Mi 10 Ultra which was launched a few months ago.
Xiaomi Mi 11 specifications and price
The Mi 11 Standard Edition is expected to feature a quad-curved screen with a hole punch in the top left. Thus, the upcoming device will look somewhat similar to the Mi 10 at least from the front.
Although the dimensions of the phone are not known yet, it is likely that the phone will come with a FHD + quality AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
This is higher than the 90Hz refresh rate found in the previous version. However, we will have to wait for other details such as peak screen brightness and more.
Under the hood, the phone will be powered by the most powerful processor at the moment, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.
Other performance improvements are faster LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 internal storage instead of 3.0.
In terms of the camera, the device will have a triple rear camera with LED flash.
The lenses will be stacked horizontally within a circular unit. According to the leaked images, the camera module will also have a distinct blue gradient color.
In terms of lens details, the 108MP primary sensor will likely come alongside a 13MP ultra-wide lens and a 5MP macro sensor.
Although there are a few rumors predicting the existence of a telephoto lens, the only upgrade is the presence of a macro lens with a greater precision than the one that was in Mi 10.
The phone is likely to come with a 4,780mAh battery with 55W fast charging support.
As for the internal configuration, we can expect the RAM to be 8 and 12 GB as well as 128/256/512 GB internal storage.
It is expected that the phone will be priced at $ 612 for the lower version that comes with 8 + 128 GB.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro specifications and price
As far as the leaked images were concerned, the Mi 11 Pro was a mystery, to say the least. Although reports expect an identical design on all series phones, the leaked protective cover of the phone hints at the presence of four cameras in the Pro version.
That would definitely come as a surprise since that extra lens would make a huge difference to the standard version.
Anyway, the Mi 11 Pro, according to new information on Weibo, will come with a 6.76-inch screen. But the resolution will be QHD + with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
The phone will run on the same processor, and it will come paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 internal storage.
If the Mi 11 Pro will come with the same design as the regular version, it will probably come with the same triple rear camera as well but the lenses will definitely be different.
Where the primary camera is expected to come with a 48-megapixel camera, with a 20-megapixel ultra-wide lens, with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens that supports 2x optical zoom.
The primary camera may come with a resolution of 50 megapixels, similar to the standard version.
But if reports are true that the phone could come with a quad rear camera, it is expected that the fourth lens will be an additional periscope lens, perhaps for greater optical zoom.
The phone will work on a giant battery that may have a capacity of 4970 mAh with support for fast charging of 55 watts.
Having a bigger battery is understandable since the screen comes with a higher resolution. We can expect other features such as having the same internal configuration. The price of the phone will likely start at $811.
Regarding the software, it is expected that all phones of the series will arrive with Android 11 and the MIUI 12 user interface.
What about Mi 11 Pro Plus?
Apart from the two phones mentioned above, it is rumored that there will be a third phone in the series which is expected to be the Mi 11 Pro Plus. Unfortunately, not many details have been revealed regarding the phone.
But it is expected that the phone will come with a larger screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and the same quality, and the same processor as well.
It is rumored that the phone will come with support for fast charging with a capacity of 100 watts, and one of the officials from within the company stated that sufficient stock for the phone will be provided in anticipation of the huge demand expected.
That was all we know and waiting for the highly anticipated series of flagship phones to be officially revealed this month.
