The popular smartphone company, Xiaomi has gone ahead to release the first Android device with Snapdragon 888 chipset. The device is called the Xiaomi Mi 11.
The Mi 11 comes with the best display of 6.81” AMOLED with QHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and the front panel having a 480Hz touch sampling rate. The screen gets protection from a Gorilla Glass Victus.
There’s a 20MP selfie cam, tucked behind a punch hole in the upper left corner. There’s a powerful triple camera setup at the backend of the device with the main camera being a 108MP cam, known from the Mi 10 series (the one that is 1/1.33” in size), with a 7P lens and f/1.85 lens in front. The 13MP ultrawide angle camera has 123-degree FoV, while the third snapper, sitting on the side, is a basic 5MP macro lens.
The Snapdragon 888 can be combined with either 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage or 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage. There’s no microSD slot on board, so no option to add more after the purchase.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a 4,600 mAh power cell that supports 55W wired fast-charging, 50W wireless, and 10W reverse charging. It will work with every Quick Charge 4+, Quick Charge 3+, and Power Delivery 3.0 adapter. Xiaomi has decided to skip the charger in the retail box but will give a 65W GaN adapter for free if you don’t have a compatible charger already.
Pricing begins at $610 and goes up to $720 for the roomiest memory option. Pre-order has already started, with the first sale scheduled for January 1, 2021. The Xiaomi Mi 11 will be offered in six different colours – Black, White, Blue, Khaki Vegan Leather, Purple Leather, and Special Edition with Lei Jun’s autograph for some reason.
