Xiaomi today announced the global release of Mi 11, the latest flagship in its popular Mi smartphone lineup.
The Mi 11 debuts with some groundbreaking improvements over its predecessor, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, 108MP triple rear camera, cinematic audio, and 50W wireless charging.
The ultimate pocket-sized movie studio, Mi 11 turns any novice photo and video enthusiast into a film director with its triple rear camera setup. Boasting the world’s highest resolution 108MP wide-angle camera sensor for its primary shooter, Mi 11 captures crystal-clear images with dazzling detail comparable only to that of professional-grade DSLR or mirrorless cameras. A 13MP ultra-wide angle camera and 5MP telemacro lens round out the rear camera setup, offering impressive landscape and detail shots with brilliant bokeh. On the front, a 20MP punch-hole front camera minimizes bezels on the homescreen while still ensuring users look their best when snapping a selfie or video chatting with friends.
The Mi 11 touts remarkable new features for photography and videography such as improved night mode capabilities, photo night mode on not one, not two, but three of its cameras: primary, ultra-wide, and front. Mi 11’s cutting-edge video night mode technology completely redefines industry standards with its RAW-level noise reduction for brighter night shooting.
Six one-click AI cinema features make artsy shooting a breeze, from Parallel World – which duplicates and inverts your scene to give the appearance of a mirrored world – to Freeze Frame Video – which freezes and clones video frames to create the illusion that parts of your video are frozen in time. Real film buffs will appreciate the Magic Zoom mode, creating an illusion of the camera simultaneously zooming in and out of the scene, a trick originally popularized through thriller films.

Stay one step ahead with the world’s most advanced performance
Mi 11 was the first phone to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, redefining flagship performance with the world’s most advanced mobile platform. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 completely redefines premium processing standards with its Adreno 660 GPU, 6th generation Qualcomm AI engine and X60 modem – blending AI technology with lightning fast 5G connectivity.
Featuring cutting-edge 5nm process technology, Mi 11 is faster, more powerful and more efficient than its predecessor. The device not only supports 2K/120fps/HDR gaming, but also sports an octa-core design, and ultra-large core Arm Cortex-X1 which ramps up performance dramatically. All that while its 3,200MHz LPDDR5 ensures incredible data transfer speed that has increased from 5,500Mbps to 6,400Mbps.
Equipped with the latest LiquidCool heat dissipation system, the device effortlessly deals with extreme gaming and other high-capacity operations while staying cool. At the same time, its 4600mAh (typ), the staggering triple combination of 55W wired, 50W wireless and 10W reverse charging and the compact but powerful 55W GaN charger included in the box, ensure that Mi 11 stays powered up for any adventure life throws your way.
Xiaomi has also prepared a big surprise to all the gaming fans out there. The launch of Mi 11 marks the start of Xiaomi’s collaboration with the most popular mobile game of the year 2020, Genshin Impact. Mi 11 offers great Genshin performance, and beginning with Mi 11, Xiaomi will be working with the game producer MiHoYo to offer users a better and smoother gaming experience through deep strategic collaboration. Stay tuned for more details!
MIUI 12.5 is an intermediate update based on MIUI 12 with a strong focus on system optimizations. After a complete revamp of the system UI, its CPU usage was reduced by up to 22% while power consumption – by up to 15%, ensuring frictionless performance and graphics.
This is most visible in screen gestures that will now be smoother than ever. In previous systems, gestures and other tasks were rendered on a single thread resulting in a queue of tasks competing for CPU usage. Naturally, under this scenario an overload of tasks could cause lags. However, in MIUI 12.5, gestures received a dedicated thread, making sure that no other tasks will interfere with them, and guaranteeing instant response.
Mi 11 comes in two storage variants: 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB with enhanced LPDDR5 3200MHz RAM + UFS 3.1 storage.
Mi 11 will be available for purchase via Xiaomi’s official sales channels as early as February. Local availability and pricing will be announced soon.
