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.
