Xiaomi is not entirely a smartphone company as many already know. In fact, the Xiaomi internet business started before its smartphone business. In 2010, the company released its MIUI skin. However, its first smartphone officially hit the market in 2011. Xiaomi has been doing a lot to improve the experience in its MIUI system. Nevertheless, according to recent reports, the company is pledging to do more. Xiaomi’s founder and CEO, Lei Jun, believes that the MIUI Android skin can be better. This is the latest commitment from the company to improving the performance of MIUI.
“Smartphones are products that highly integrate hardware, software, and Internet services…The mission is to create better software and hardware integration and interconnection experience.
Come on, I believe MIUI will be better”.
While many people will love to see the improvements in MIUI, Lei Jun did not reveal any specific details. Thus, we do not know when MIUI’s new features will arrive or which improvements it will get. However, it is relaxing to know that the company is making efforts to make MIUI better. Of course, we are expecting to see some software improvements with the Xiaomi Mi 11 launch tomorrow.
Xiaomi Mi 11 speculations
There have been numerous leaks and speculations regarding the Xiaomi Mi 11 series. For starters, this series will have at least two versions – Xiaomi Mi 11 and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro. Both smartphones will continue to use a punch-hole design. However, while the Mi 11 uses a hyperboloid screen, the Mi 11 Pro comes with a 2K quad-curved screen. The displays support up to 120Hz refresh rate as well as the native 10bit color depth.
Judging from the leaked real images of the Mi 11, it uses a blue gradient back shell. Furthermore, the rear camera layout has a square design. This compartment holds two large sensors and a small sensor above the LED light. However, the Mi 11 Pro is expected to adopt a horizontal matrix camera design.
In addition, the Mi 11 Pro will support up to 100W super-fast charging. Recall that this is the specification of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Extreme Edition. Nevertheless, there are speculations that the Mi 11 Pro charging power may be up to 120W fast charging. The basic version of the series will receive a battery with a capacity of 4780mAh, and the larger variant with a 4970mAh battery. The standard version camera will have three lenses (108 MP + 13 MP + 5 MP), while the Mi 11 Pro will have a more interesting set of sensors: 50 MP + 48 MP + 20 MP + 12 MP.
Also, the Mi 11 appeared on Geekbench today. As expected, this smartphone comes with Qualcomm’s latest 5G flagship SoC, Snapdragon 888. It also has up to 12GB of RAM and runs Android 11. This device recorded a single core of 1135 points and a multi-core of 3790 points. This obviously meets Qualcomm’s official standard for the Snapdragon 888 SoC.
According to recent leaks, the Xiaomi Mi 11 will run on MIUI 12.0,9.0 on top of Android 11 (RKBCNXM). This device will also come with the Android security patch for November 2020. Furthermore, we expect some software improvements in this device.
