Chinese multinational electronics company, Xiaomi Corporation is set to unveil its new flagship series later today. The Mi 11 smartphone series will be among the first bunch of new flagship phones to run on the Snapdragon 888, Qualcomm’s latest high-end chip.
Xiaomi’s Mi 11 is rumored to come with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with QHD+ resolution and up to 120GHz refresh rate. The phone will run Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 out-of-the-box.
The recently unveiled Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC processor is an upgrade in terms of CPU and AI performance from its predecessor. The chipset has 6th Gen Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine, a 3rd Gen Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 5G Modem-RF System, and triple ISP.
Reports have said that the Mi 11 will come with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of built-in storage. The base cheaper model could also offer 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
The phone will allegedly run on a 4,780mAh battery.
After Mocking Apple for not including the charging brick in the box, Xiaomi has hypocritically confirmed the Mi 11 will ship not come without a power adapter in the box.
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun in a post on Weibo said the move would help the company achieve its environmental goals. He further said the thickness of the box would be drastically reduced, which in turn would reduce the overall cost.
Xiaomi recently teased a special night Video Mode that allows the handset to shoot better quality videos in low light.
While reports suggest the Mi 11 will offer an improved 108-megapixel camera on the back, the Pro model could come with much more superior camera specifications.
Other expected features include Wi-Fi 6 and LPDDR5 RAM support.
