Hi my friends, in this post, we will talk about the new super phone Xiaomi Mi 11 & Mi 11 Pro 2021. As a rule, Xiaomi releases a new version of the flagship phone every six months.

  • The update is expected in the near future, as, according to representatives of the company, the 11th generation of mobile devices will be available even before the start of the Chinese “Spring Festival”, which starts on February 12.

It is noteworthy that the phone will receive an optimized operating system based on the familiar Android. MiUI 13 will be another reinvention of the OS. The revision of the program code was also necessary due to the introduction of new technologies.

  • The technology will allow you to place the lens imperceptibly under the display. The appearance of the phone will finally get rid of the boring “bangs” imposed by the iPhone.

The company will please its fans with three versions of the gadget at once. Based on the basic phone Xiaomi Mi 11, they plan to release Pro & Mini versions.

The purpose of such a marketing move is obvious. After all, the consumer receives several options for buying at once. One standard, the second more powerful & more expensive, the third reduced. By the way, a similar trick has already been adopted by Apple and Samsung.

Here is the time when you can take a look at the review of the specs of the phone Xiaomi Mi 11 & Mi 11 Pro 2021

Aalthough the release date of Xiaomi Mi 11 will not take place today or tomorrow, already now authoritative informants have provided all the data regarding the design and hardware features of the new product.

Design & screen

The younger model of the smartphone Xiaomi Mi 11  and the older version with the prefix ” Pro ” will be made in the same style.

  • The front will remain AMOLED screen with rounded edges and a cutout for the front camera. The diagonal will be more than 6 inches, and the resolution will be 1440p with a refresh rate of 120Hz.

Behind the owner is waiting for a glossy glass and a massive block of cameras. At the same time, the number of photographic sensors will decrease compared to the Xiaomi Mi 10.

Cameras:

Xiaomi Mi 11 camera specs:

  1. Camera 108 mpxls;
  2. Photo resolution 8700 x 5800;
  3. Optical Zoom, 5x;
  4. Dual LED Flash;
  5. Optical Stabilization;
  6. Record 8K video Up to 30fps;
  7. 4K video recording Up to 60fps;
  8. 1080p video recording Up to 60fps;
  9. Slow Motion 960 fps (720p);
  10. 123°wide angle lens angle;
  11. Lenses 3 (50 MP, 8 MP, 13 MP);
  12. Main lens – 108 MP:  Aperture: f / 2.0, Focal length: 24mm, Pixel size: 1.4 microns, Sensor: 1/1. 12″, Samsung GN2 (ISOCELL Plus CMOS) Phase autofocus, Optical stabilization;
  13. Telephoto lens – 8 MP: Focal length: 120mm, Pixel Size: 1 micron, Sensor: 1/4. 4″, Omnivision OV08A10, Phase autofocus, Optical stabilization;
  14. Ultra wide angle lens – 13 MP: Aperture: f / 2.4, Focal length: 16mm, Sensor: 1/3. 06″, Omnivision OV08A10, Phase autofocus;
  15. Macro Lens: Features – Bokeh Effect”, “Pro” mode”, RAW support;
  16. Selfie Camera: Number of megapixels 20 megapixels, Photo resolution 5380 x 3620, Aperture f/2.3, Focal, length 27 mm, Pixel size 0.8 microns;
  17. ISOCELL CMOS Sensor Type, Sensor Size 1/3. 4″ Video, Resolution 1080p (Full HD) at 30 FPS.

The main sensor is unlikely to change, and the wide angle module will retain its position with its 13 megapixels. But the purpose of the sensor with a resolution of 5 MP raises questions.

Obviously, we are not talking about a televik with an optical approximation. Most likely, we are waiting for a useless macro module.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro camera specs:

  1. Camera 50 mpxls;
  2. Photo resolution 12032 x 9204;
  3. Digital Zoom;
  4. LED Flash;
  5. Optical Stabilization;
  6. Record 8K video Up to 30fps;
  7. 4K video recording Up to 60fps;
  8. 1080p video recording Up to 60fps;
  9. Slow Motion 960 fps (720p);
  10. 123°wide angle lens angle;
  11. Lenses 3 (108 MP, 13 MP, 5 MP);
  12. Main lens – 50 MP: Aperture: f/1.9. Focal length: 26mm, Pixel size: 0.8 microns, Sensor: 1/1. 33″, Samsung Bright S5KHMX (ISOCELL Plus CMOS), Phase autofocus, Optical stabilization;
  13. Telephoto lens;
  14. Ultra wide angle lens – 13 MP: Aperture: f/2.4, Pixel size: 1.12 microns, Sensor: 1/3. 06″, Omnivision OV13B10
    Macro lens – 5 MP: Aperture: f/2.4, Pixel size: 1.12 microns, Sensor: 1/5″, Samsung S5K5E9 (CMOS)

  15. Selfie Camera: Number of megapixels 20 megapixels: Photo resolution 5380 x 3620, Aperture f/2.3
    Focal length 27 mm, Pixel size 0.8 microns;
  16. ISOCELL CMOS Sensor Type;
  17. Sensor size 1/3. 4″;
  18. 1080p (Full HD) video resolution at 30 FPS.

This is where it gets interesting. On the one hand, the resolution of the main sensor is smaller, on the other the OmniVision OV48C with a pixel size of 1.2 microns will be used as the matrix.

Plus, the main sensor is complemented by an excellent  wide-angle camera & apparently, a pair of TV speakers for a record approach.

  • As you know, Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra boasted a 120x zoom, so Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro certainly will not lower the bar. Perhaps a new threshold will be reached, previously unattainable for any manufacturer.

CPU & RAM + storage memory:

The hardware platform of Xiaomi Mi 11 and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will be a new 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 CPU:

  • 4 cores – 1.8 GHz cores: Kryo 680 Silver (Cortex-A55);
  • 3 cores – 2.42 GHz cores: Kryo 680 Gold (Cortex-A78);
  • 1 core – 2.84 GHz core: Kryo 680 Prime (Cortex-X1).
  1. RAM memory capacity – 8, 12 GB;
  2. Type – LPDDR5;
  3. Frequency – 2750 MHz;
  4. Channels – 2;
  5. Storage capacity – 128, 512 GB;
  6. Drive type UFS – 3.1.

Chinese developers have already announced the continuation of cooperation with American vendors, posting a video on their YouTube channel. Just look at Lei Jun’s contented face. So, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is the world’s first Snapdragon 888 smartphone. But what do we know about this new chipset?

Qualcomm highlights the following features:

  1. Snapdragon X60 5G modem with up to 7.5 Gb/s download speed;
  2. 5-nm process technology;
  3. New Spectra ISP image processor, allowing you to take 120 photos at 12MP per second;
  4. Support for Snapdragon Elite Gaming 3rd generation;
  5. More precise information about the Snapdragon 888 is still being kept secret. But it is already clear that the new Qualcomm CPU will surpass the performance of the Apple A14 Bionic installed in the iPhone 12.

Finally, about memory. The Xiaomi Mi 11 & Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will traditionally lack a microSD card slot. And the minimum RAM+ROM configuration will be 8/128 GB for both models. Modestly, but this is easily explained by the price, which in the case of new products will be lower.

Now it’s time to find out when the Xiaomi Mi 11 will be released. The release date of Xiaomi Mi 11 is scheduled for the end of December 2020, according to the informant Ice Universe. Thus, the Chinese manufacturer moved the deadline by a month.

  • Xiaomi Mi 11 – 3999 yuan (~ $ 618);
  • Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro – 5299 yuan (~ $ 815), price in USA – $ 600 (Xiaomi).
