Xiaomi Mi 11 Vs Vivo X60 – Snapdragon 888 meets Exynos 1080


With the arrival of the Snapdragon 888, there is a “cold” impression that only this chip can give you the perfect performance. However, it is interesting to note that there are other new chips that are as tough. The recently released Samsung Exynos 1080 is one of them. This chip uses the same Samsung 5nm manufacturing process as the Snapdragon 888. While the Xiaomi Mi 11 prides itself as the pioneer device of the Snapdragon 888, Vivo X60 is the pioneer device of the Exynos 1080. Both the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Vivo X60 are flagship killers and their prices are interesting.

 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 can easily pitch against the Vivo X60 Pro but there will be a Mi 11 Pro. We believe that it is best for the Pro models to do battle with each other. This comparison looks at the specifications of two smartphones from Chinese brands. Of course, they were the last devices of 2020. Interestingly, you will not really have to break the bank for any of these devices.

Xiaomi Mi 11 vs Vivo X60

Design

Looking at the front, there is no much design difference between the Mi 11 and the Vivo X60. However, if you love a rounded device, the Mi 11 will be your choice. The Mi 11 uses a more rounded overall design with a curved screen on all four edges and a punch-hole camera to the left of the display. The Vivo X60 on the other hand uses a straight display and a center punch-hole design. Although the overall design of the Vivo X60 is round, it is not as round as the Xiaomi Mi 11. Both smartphones have a high screen-to-body ratio which is a plus for both of them. However, the Vivo X60 prides itself as the thinnest 5G phone ever with a thickness of only 7.4mm. The Xiaomi Mi 11 is 8.1mm thick.

However, the main design difference is on the rear of these smartphones. The Xiaomi Mi 11 prides itself on its original rear camera module design. The camera module has rounded edges and the triple cameras are within this module. The Vivo X60 uses the more regular vertical camera module with three sensors. The main sensor is the large sensor on top while the other two smaller sensors are beneath the main sensor.

Display

On the display capabilities itself, the Xiaomi Mi 11 has an edge. This display is one of the most expensive in the industry. DisplayMate rates the Mi 11 display A+. In addition to the 120Hz refresh rate, this display also supports Quad HD+ resolution, high brightness up to 1500 nits, and HDR10+. This display also uses the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, supports 1B colors and the pixel density reaches 515. For the Vivo X60, its AMOLED also supports a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10. However, the pixel density (398) and display resolution are lower than that of the Mi 11. Both displays come with an on-screen fingerprint sensor.
