Xiaomi Mi 11i has been presented along with the new Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra, which have a telephoto lens and a new larger sensor, in addition to the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. This seems to complete for the moment this (increasingly) prolific range of Xiaomi. And as we shall now see, this “i” in the surname of the Mi 11i also means having a high-end mobile for less than €700.

The best Xiaomi flat screen
Not that the module of the Mi 11i is going to be precisely more discreet than that of its twin, but we see that there are slight differences in it, in addition to seeing the side fingerprint reader. Also, the colors available are gray, beige, and black.
It also has a 6.67-inch E4 AMOLED display, with up to 120 Hz refresh rate (320 Hz touch refresh) contrast ratio of 5,000-000:1, and a brightness of 1,300 nits. This screen has a sensor thanks that adapts to the level of brightness and color temperature.
This panel supports HDR10+ and offers a super-resolution mode to improve video quality. Besides, fortunately for many users, it is a flat panel.
Without sacrificing maximum power
The Xiaomi Mi 11i cuts back some features but not at the processor level. Even though Qualcomm has diversified its 800 series so that there are more basic options within the high end, the Mi 11i still features the Snapdragon 888, as we saw in the Mi 11 and we have seen in the higher ones.
It is accompanied by 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. The battery is slightly lower than the Mi 11, remaining at 4,250 mAh and supporting 33 W fast charging.
As for cameras, in the Xiaomi Mi 11i, we see the following scheme:
- 108-megapixel (1/1.52-inch) main sensor with 7P lens with f/1.75 aperture,
- Ultra wide-angle with 119-degree field of view,
- Front camera with a 20-megapixel sensor.
This puts it more on a level playing field with the Mi 11 and below the new Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra, which sport telephoto lenses and a new larger sensor.
The Mi 11i comes with the time-lapse function for the macro lens, plus the Audio Zoom function, which allows the sound to also be amplified with the image when zooming in on a video. It also has some new cinematic effects type functions, such as Time Freeze or Freeze Frame.
