Xiaomi has introduced the Mi 11 Ultra, its newest flagship. It's based on Xiaomi's excellent new Mi 11, but with a more sophisticated camera system and a second screen concealed inside the camera bump.
On the back of the Mi 11 Ultra are three cameras: a 1/1.12-inch 50-megapixel main sensor, a 48-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and a 48-megapixel 5x periscope telephoto sensor. As compared to the standard Mi 11, which had a smaller 108-megapixel main sensor, a 13-megapixel ultrawide, and a 5-megapixel macro camera, those sensors could be improvements throughout the board.
The secondary screen is the reason why the camera bump occupies the top portion of the Mi 11 Ultra. It has a 1.1-inch OLED display with a resolution of 126 x 294 pixels, a peak brightness of 450 nits, and a power-saving mode. When the phone is face-down, Xiaomi claims it can be used as a selfie viewfinder, an always-on camera, or a way to check notification notifications.
Other than that, the specifications are the same as the Mi 11. A 6.8-inch 120Hz 1440p OLED monitor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage are among the features. The battery capacity has been increased to 5,000mAh, and it can now be charged at a rate of 67W wirelessly or through a cable.
Xiaomi is also releasing a Mi 11 Lite 5G, which is a scaled-down version of the Mi 11. It has a similar design to the Mi 11, but it is a mid-range product. It's the first phone to use Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 780 processor, which was revealed last week. Its compact and light construction — it's just 6.81mm thick — is the highlight.
A 6.55-inch 1080p 90Hz OLED display is found elsewhere, which is smaller, slower, and lower-resolution than the Mi 11. A 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and a 5-megapixel macro sensor make up the triple-camera device.The battery is also smaller, at 4,250mAh, but, unlike the Mi 11, the Mi 11 Lite does have a headphone jack.
Xiaomi hasn't announced pricing or release dates for the Mi 11 Ultra and Mi 11 Lite yet, but we'll keep you updated.
