The brand new Mi 11 is powered by the Snapdragon 888 which we had a deeper dive into earlier at present. The brand new chip’s CPU setup is certainly extra highly effective, in addition to its GPU, nevertheless it can be fairly energy hungry. I’m anticipating Xiaomi’s implementation to be extra aggressive than Samsung’s, permitting for larger energy dissipation ranges beneath sustained workloads – we’ll verify this quickly sufficient as we put together for a overview of the telephone.
The design of the Mi 11 appears to be fairly enticing, and it’s undoubtedly a sleeker telephone than the Mi 10, as Xiaomi was in a position to skinny the telephone by 0.9mm and likewise make it 12g lighter – doesn’t sound like a lot, however such variations could make for a considerable change in really feel.
The telephone contains a 6.8” 3200 x 1440 OLED show that’s in a position to attain 120Hz refresh charges, in addition to a staggering 480Hz contact enter pattern price. Xiaomi advertises extraordinarily excessive brightness ranges; nevertheless, the corporate hadn’t commented on the OLED technology of the panel in order of proper now we’re undecided if that is utilizing one in all Samsung Show’s newer emitter panels or if it even has VRR/LFD capabilities – however as of proper now I’m assuming that it doesn’t.
On the digicam facet, the Mi 11 options their signature 108MP sensor, binning right down to 27MP in common images. This technology Xiaomi has opted for various optics, going from f/1.69 to a brand new f/1.85 system – which in my opinion is totally the correct alternative because the earlier technology did undergo from optical underperformance on the a part of the primary digicam. The module right here additionally has OIS.
Alongside the primary sensor, we see a 13MP ultra-wide with 123°V FoV and f/2.4 optics, in addition to a 5MP “telemacro” module with 2x magnification. I’m curious to see what this final module does, however I feel most individuals ought to deal with the telephone as a dual-camera telephone, which is totally simply high-quality as properly.
749€ – An ideal worth
The large information at present was the reveal of the worldwide/European worth of the brand new Mi 11: 749€ for the 8+128GB variant. That is truly a fairly nice worth, contemplating it’s competing in opposition to the likes of 999€ Galaxy S21+. The Xiaomi has some drawbacks within the digicam division, although we’ll should see how they compete in opposition to one another, but additionally has notable benefits reminiscent of a better high quality show, and the superior Snapdragon 888 in most world markets, which outperforms the brand new Exynos 2100.
In that regard, Xiaomi’s pricing appears to be spot-on, and of nice worth. We’ll be overview the Mi 11 within the coming future.
