After all the hypes and teasers, Xiaomi has finally showcased the Mi 11 Pro and Ultra to the world. These are the most premium offering from Xiaomi to date and build on the Mi 11 that was launched last December. In this post, we will be taking a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro/Ultra in Nepal.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro, Ultra Overview:
Design and Display
Both phones feature a 6.81-inch AMOLED screen with QHD+ resolution. Like the regular Mi 11, the panel here is curved for the premium feel. The display supports an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. The DotDisplay has a left-aligned circular cutout for the selfie camera.
The back panel on the Ultra is made using ceramic while the Pro model has a glass back. The ceramic back has made the Ultra thinner than the Pro (8.38 < 8.53). As expected, both phones are IP68 rated too.
The back of the Mi 11 Ultra looks completely new because of the secondary display. It is placed within the camera bump that now covers almost the 1/4th part of the rear panel.
Being the premium smartphones that they are, you’ll find the Snapdragon 888 chipset inside. It is a flagship offering from Qualcomm based on Samsung’s 5nm process. It features a total of eight cores including the 2.84GHz Cortex X1 Prime core. The Snapdragon X60 5G modem is integrated into the chip for the 5G connectivity.
Keeping the chip cool is a new cooling system that makes use of a solid-liquid phase-change thermal pad. According to the company, the thermal conductivity is 100% higher than that of traditional gels.
Here, Mi 11 Ultra flaunts a triple camera setup on the back. The primary camera here uses the 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor. The sensor was announced last month and is a follow-up to last year’s GN1. This 1/1.12” sensor features 1.4µm individual pixels. The 4-in-1 pixel binning results in larger 2.8µm pixels. It is also the first in the ISOCELL lineup to feature a Dual Pixel Pro AF system. It is capable of recording 4K/120fps videos.
Accompanying it is a 48MP ultrawide sensor (128-degree FOV) and a 48MP telephoto lens. The latter is capable of 5X optical zoom and 120x digital zoom. The camera module even features a secondary screen that can be useful while capturing selfies from the rear camera. Similarly, it can also display notifications.
On the contrary, Mi 11 Pro features the same primary camera but has a 13MP ultrawide camera (123-degree FOV) and an 8MP telephoto lens (5x optical/50x hybrid zoom).
Rest of the specs
The 5000mAh battery on the Mi 11 Pro and Ultra is based on Silicon-Anode battery technology. Though it’s a first for a commercial smartphone, similar technology has been used in the electric automotive industries. This allows batteries to be smaller and support higher charging speeds.
According to Xiaomi, the “nano-scale silicon material” on the negative electrode of the battery increases the theoretical gram capacity by 10 times compared to the graphite anode. In terms of charging, the device supports 67W wired and wireless charging. The phone comes with dual speakers tuned by Harmon Kardon.
