Xiaomi has just made official the Mi 11, its new high-end model for 2021, although in China it was presented in late 2020. The Mi 11 is the new generation upgrade of the Mi 10 and becomes the first phone on the market to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.
As anticipated by the company, they arrive with this new processor, so let’s talk about all the technical features that come with the device since Xiaomi has put all the meat on the grill.

This is the Xiaomi Mi 11
The main point with the Xiaomi Mi 11 at the hardware level is that it debuts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, the new processor that succeeds the Snapdragon 865. In this generation the X60 5G modem comes integrated, the architecture finally moves to 5 nanometers and we have new Kryo cores (customized by Qualcomm) that promise to improve power and energy efficiency over its predecessors.
The screen of the Xiaomi Mi 11 features Super AMOLED technology, a diagonal of 6.81 inches, and WQHD+ resolution in this model. The refresh rate is 120Hz (they work in 2K), a great improvement over the 90Hz of the previous generation. It is a slightly curved panel on its sides with a small hole in the screen and, according to the renderings, it seems to be very well used. The density is 515 PPI, a fairly high figure, with a maximum peak of 1,500nits for brightness, which are spectacular figures.
The refresh rate is adaptive, with modes of 30, 60, 90, and 120Hz, which will vary according to the content displayed on the screen. The aim is to save as much battery as possible.
This processor is accompanied by a base configuration of 8 GB of RAM + 128 GB of internal memory, which can be increased to 12 + 256 GB in the case of the highest-end version. The battery is 4,600mAh, with support for 55W fast charging. It is accompanied by another 50W for wireless charging and 10W reverse charging. This is an insane fast-charging system that not too many manufacturers have reached, with the advantage that the global version does include a charger (as well as a case).
The camera has a 1/1.33″ sensor, with a resolution of 108 megapixels, a seven-element lens, and an optical image stabilizer. This is one of the largest sensors on the market, powered by artificial intelligence and computational photography. The wide-angle is 13 megapixels, allowing for wide-angle photography. Finally, there is a 5-megapixel macro sensor, the sensor that is perhaps the most unusual in mobile of this caliber.
Xiaomi highlights the “1 click” functions, to facilitate the user’s shots, the “cinematic” filters, and the ability to record in HDR10+, the latter being perhaps the most distinctive feature.
