These four smartphones also represent the first echelon of Xiaomi’s industrial design. Especially this year’s Xiaomi 12 series, it made great progress. It successfully gets rid of the previous “straight man” design of the Xiaomi digital series.
However, the most conspicuous of them is the Mi 11 Ultra, the first super-cup flagship in Xiaomi’s history. The huge rear camera module is very attractive, and it also brings very good imaging performance.
It is worth noting that, according to the current revelations, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will also continue the design of the super large camera module. It will also bring a leap-forward enhancement, which is worth looking forward to.
