Xiaomi Mi 11 is expected to be soon joined by two higher-specced phones namely the Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, and a lower-powered handset by the name of Mi 11 Lite. While the launch date seems to be far, we have got a full exposé of the top honcho, ie the Ultra model. As you can see from the cover image, the device sports a radical design, unlike anything we have seen yet. It gauds 120X zoom prowess and a small secondary screen sitting beside the rear cameras.
The leak comes from a Filipino YouTuber with the handle Tech Buff PH. He shows off a device codenamed M2102K1G, which is presumably the global variant of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. Incidentally, the software present in the device also appears to be the MIUI 12.5 Global build.
Here’s everything else we gather from the said video —
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra Specs
Two Mi 11 Ultra units are shown in the video — a White color one with “120X Ultra Pixel AI Camera” stamped on the camera bump and the other in black with “120X, 12-120mm, 1:1.95-4.1” inscription. Our guess is that either one or both of them are prototypes. Hence, the different texts. Anyways, the cameras are a primary 50MP sensor, a 48MP ultrawide, and the 48MP periscopic telephoto lens which would achieve the aforementioned zoom. Now, we are not sure how much of that 120x is optical. Well, only time will tell.
Also if the leaks are any indication, then a flamboyant aspect of the device will be that ancillary display by the back. The video suggests that you should be able to run any app on this tiny canvas. However, an ideal case could be to use it as a viewfinder for selfies with the rear cameras.
Well, the panel on the front is gladly regular-sized by 2021 standards. It stretches 6.8-inches diagonally with curves on all four edges. It is OLED with WQHD+ resolution, a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, and a Gorilla Glass Victus shield. To the top left corner lies a punch-hole cutout that houses a 20MP selfie camera.
Other important specs include Snapdragon 888 chipset, 5,000mAh battery (backed by 67W fast wired, 67W fast wireless, and 10W reverse wireless charging), IP68 ingress protection, and a Harman/Kardon calibrated speaker.
Needless to say, take these data and details with a grain of salt up until stronger evidence corroborates them.
