(Update, December 28: And the Xiaomi Mi 11 has been launched!)
The company has revealed on Weibo and WeChat that the Mi 11 series — likely to include the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro — will be unveiled first in China on December 28.
The world’s third biggest smartphone vendor previously confirmed that the Snapdragon 888, which is Qualcomm’s first 5nm chipset, will debut on Xiaomi’s flagship series. At least we have that one confirmed information to look forward to. Other details come from the rumor mill.
According to leaks, the Xiaomi 5G handset with model number M2011K2C, which was already certified by different authorities in China, is the Xiaomi Mi 11. A Geekbench listing shows the unit notching high benchmark scores of 1,135 and 3,642 in the single- and multi-core tests, respectively. It also reveals that the device ships with Android 11 out of the box — not surprising, really.
A recent leak claims that the Mi 11 has 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB variants, with the base model being available in White and Smoked Purple (leather) colors and the 12GB version, in Blue, Smoked Purple (leather), and a still-unnamed special edition.
Reports say the Xiaomi Mi 11 series features a curved AMOLED screen with a punch hole at the top, a quad HD+ resolution, and a fast, 120Hz refresh rate for a smoother experience. It is also expected to come with 108-megapixel triple camera and a battery that’s rated at almost 5,000mAh and supports up to 55 watts of fast charging.
What could be the Xiaomi Mi 11’s design
We wonder when the global launch will be — and if the Philippines will be the one of the first countries to have it. We are impressed with the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro 5G, so we’re looking forward to getting our hands on the Mi 11, too. Guess we’ll just have to rest easy for now.
