Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, has officially confirmed that it will release new smartphones on March 29th. The company will officially unveil the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. Recall that Xiaomi released the Xiaomi Mi 11 back in December 2020. This is the first smartphone that comes with the Snapdragon 888 flagship SoC. As a flagship series, we knew that the Xiaomi Mi 11 will not be alone in the series. After the official confirmation of the launch date, more information regarding these phones continues to hit the web.
Today, Xiaomi’s official Weibo handle released a poster that teases the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra camera. The poster shows the world’s first Samsung ISOCELL GN2 CMOS, with a 1/1.12″ inch ultra-outsole. Well, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra will be the first flagship smartphone to use this sensor. Each pixel of 50MP reaches 1.4μm, which is an unprecedented 2.8μm after fusion. It also premieres the Dual PD Pro full pixel omnidirectional 8-core focusing.
Xiaomi officially describes the imaging system of the Mi 11 Ultra as the “war of the turning point”. This time, it is “revisiting the boundary of the dark night”. This implies that the new device should have a very good night imaging effect.
Xiaomi teases its upcoming flagships
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will come with a 48-megapixel periscope lens that can support 5x optical zoom shooting. As for the Mi 11 Ultra, its camera is much better. It will come with a combination of dual main cameras + periscope lens. The Samsung ISOCELL GN2 image sensor support up to 120x zoom shooting.
Of course, this smartphone comes with a secondary dislay. The small display will allow users to take selfies with the rear cameras. Obviously, this display will perform other functions that we are yet to confirm.
Both the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra will come with the 5nm Snapdragon 888 SoC. This is the latest flagship processor from Qualcomm. In fact, most of the recent Android flagships in the market use this chip. Those who wants a cheaper alternative will settle for the 7n Snapdragon 870 SoC.
While both smartphones will use a 5000 mAh large capacity battery, they will not support the same charging capabilities. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will support 67W wired fast charging + 50W wireless fast charging. However, the Mi 11 Ultra will have 120W fast wired charging as well as 67W wireless charging. Both smartphones will come with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash memory.
