The Xiaomi 11i series will comprise some of the first smartphones to pack the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset in India. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer will be kicking off the new year with a bang by unveiling its much-awaited Mi 10i successor, dubbed the Xiaomi 11i. The most notable features of the Mi 10i included a 108MP camera and 5G support. However, the Xiaomi 11i is likely to undergo some radical overhauls, if teasers are anything to go by.
For instance, the Xiaomi 11i teasers suggest that the phone will come with 120W fast charging. To recall, Xiaomi has already demonstrated that the phone will be charged 100 percent in just 15 minutes with 120W fast charging support. Now, a fresh piece of information about what the smartphone will be packing under the hood has surfaced online.

Jain teased the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge phone’s color options and display specs earlier this month. MediaTek unveiled the Dimensity 920 in August. The chipset has been powering up several Chinese devices. However, the Mi 11i will be the first smartphone in India to feature the 5G chip. Regrettably, Reddy did not divulge other key details about the phone’s charging capabilities and other features. However, the Managing Director, MediaTek India, Anku Jain shed more light on what the Dimensity 920 will be offering.
What To Expect?
The mid-range Dimensity 920 SoC will launch in the first half of 2022. As expected, it boasts an impressive array of upgrades over its predecessor, the Dimensity 800 series. For instance, it uses the 6nm manufacturing process to deliver 15 percent improved performance and power efficiency. Aside from that, the Dimensity 920 chip will debut the adaptive refresh-rate displays. It will also include native HDR imaging that comes with a 4K Video Capture Hardware engine.
Dimensity 920 SoC-powered devices will be able to house up to 108MP sensors. Moreover, these devices will be capable of offering components like 120Hz displays, LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage. In terms of performance, the Dimensity 920 has high-performance Cortex-A78 cores that clock at 2.5GHz. In addition to that, it features Cortex-A55 cores that clock at 2GHz. These energy-efficient cores are placed in a 4+4 setup.
The clock speeds have been capped much lesser than what they are originally capable of. This is probably done to ensure that the thermals don’t go out of control. Moreover, it features a highly competent 4-core ARM Mali G68 MP4 GPU. According to MediaTek, this graphics processor is so powerful that it can handle all upcoming AAA games. Also, the Dimensity 920 is a 5G-ready SoC. In other words, it supports 5G networks on the SIMs in standalone, as well as non-standalone modes. Moreover, it supports Bluetooth 5.2 and WiFi 6.
