The Xiaomi Mi 11 was out before 2020 was over. It’s the world’s first smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 888. And it has an exclusive period of around two months. We mean, during this time, the only handset with the aforementioned chip that is on the market will be the Mi 11. In fact, apart from the chip, there are myriads of features that make this phone stand out. Say, it supports computational photography, runs on the MIUI 12.5 system, and the starting price is 3999 yuan ($619). However, when mentioning these features, we usually forget to talk about the 2K 120Hz quad-curved flexible screen, Harman Kardon stereo, 100MP movie camera, and so on. Now, we are going to fix this. Well, we will focus on one of these features – a high-refresh-rate screen.
