Alleged Xiaomi Mi 11 live photo leaks showing off a likely 108 MP square triple-camera module
Xiaomi is among the early smartphone OEMs to have announced a Snapdragon 888-powered phone in Q1 2021, and rumors about the Mi 11 flagship have already started doing the rounds on the internet. While some alleged specifications of the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro are available, we do not yet have conclusive images of the phone, and the one we are getting to see now does not seem to be fully reliable.
An alleged live photo of the Mi 11 was recently spotted on Weibo (now removed). At first sight, the image seems to match some features of the Mi 11 posters that have been doing the rounds for quite some time now. The live image shows a curved back with a square camera module that houses three lenses and an LED flash. It is possible that the Mi 11 Pro may sport a slightly larger camera module.
From what we know so far, the Xiaomi Mi 11 will ship with a Samsung ISOCELL HM3 108 MP sensor along with a 13 MP ultra-wide angle lens and an unknown telephoto lens. A 4,700 mAh battery with 50 W fast charging and 30 W wireless charging, 8 GB+ LPDDR5 RAM, 128 GB UFS 3.1 storage, under-display fingerprint scanner, and a 1440p 120 Hz display are on the anvil. Powering all this hardware is Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 888 flagship SoC.
While we would like to believe the live photo is real, there is currently no guarantee that this is legit when directly compared with the leaked poster. Therefore, we'd advise everyone to take this with a pinch of salt. That being said, we did see a Mi 11 Pro live photo in the wild as well, which should give us an idea of what the Mi 11 can be expected to look like.
