Most rumors claim that Samsung will launch its new Galaxy S series earlier this year. However, even if the original release date is January 14, S21 will not be the first mobile phone to use Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 888 processor.
This distinction will be attributed to Xiaomi’s new Mi 11 mobile phone, which the Chinese manufacturer announced today and said it plans to release in China on January 1.
Snapdragon 888 is Qualcomm’s latest flagship mobile processor if you need to review it. The company claims that the chipset has 25% and 35% CPU and GPU performance than Snapdragon 865.
It is also equipped with Qualcomm’s new X60 5G modem, this time the modem is directly integrated into the chip. Qualcomm positions 888 as a breakthrough chip, and Mi 11 will be our first opportunity to see if it meets the company’s requirements.
In addition to Snapdragon 888, Mi 11 includes all the features you expect in high-end phones in 2020 and has some exquisite features that make it stand out from other devices. Xiaomi has also simplified the Mi 11 lineup.
Now, it plans to no longer sell standard and Pro versions but plans to sell a flagship product-although its customers still have the opportunity to decide how much RAM and storage space they want.
The base model is equipped with 8GB RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage, while the high-end version has 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.
The biggest upgrade of Mi 10 comes from the display of Mi 11. Xiaomi has introduced a new 6.81-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 3,200 x 1,440, a refresh rate of 120Hz, and a peak brightness of 1,500 nits.
In terms of context, the upcoming Mi 10T Pro 5G is equipped with a full HD panel that can display up to 90Hz.
In terms of taking pictures, the new Mi 11 is equipped with a 108-megapixel main camera mounted on an f/1.85 aperture lens, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera with a 123-degree field of view, and a 5 for macro and focus Megapixel camera and Telephoto lens.
There is nothing exciting about Mi 11’s hardware, but Mi 11 supports 8K video capture and has a new night video mode that can capture brighter, low-light material.
Like the iPhone 12, Mi 11 will not include a power adapter in the box-at least in China. But Xiaomi told Android Authority that it will provide a bundle containing a 55W charger for free. The power adapter can fully charge the Mi 11’s 4,600mAh battery in about 45 minutes.
The phone also has a 10W reverse charging function. In terms of connectivity, Mi 11 includes NFC, WiFi 6e and Bluetooth 5.2 support. It also includes an IR blaster, which can perform measurements well.
The Mi 11 will go on sale in mainland China next month with a starting price of 3,999 yuan (approximately US$611). The company has not disclosed any news about the global listing.
