Alleged Xiaomi Mi 11 real-life images showcase 108MP camera module; prices expected to start at RMB 4,500 (US$687)
With the Xiaomi Mi 11's launch date drawing close, the smartphone is bound to show up on random corners on the internet. However, it won't be the first time we've laid eyes on it, as the device has shown up on more than one occasion. Both images essentially reconfirm what we already knew about the Xiaomi Mi 11's aesthetics and its uncannily large camera module.
Twitter users @techdroider and @techagent26 stumbled upon real-life images of the Xiaomi Mi 11. One appears to be set in an unboxing video of some sorts, while the other is a garden variety hands-on image. The second image very likely portrays the base Xiaomi Mi 11, as the camera housing indicates that it has a 108MP lens. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro, on the other hand, is expected to come the industry's first 200MP camera sensor.
Images sourced from the unboxing video, on the other hand, are a lot more confusing as a layer of plastic obscures the smartphone. It is also worth noting that the camera lens in the second set of images look considerably different than that of the Xiaomi Mi 11, so it could very well be a Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro. However, it's hard to tell what's underneath the plastic cover, so a grain of salt is in order here.
Yet another leak via Twitter user @Tech_EdgeTE sheds some light on the Xiaomi Mi 11's price. The base variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costs RMB 4,500 (US$687). Bumping the storage up to 256GB will cost you RMB 4,800 (US$733). Lastly, the maxed-out variant with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage will retail at RMB 5,200 (US$794). An earlier report told us that the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is likely to cost RMB 5,299 (US$810) for the base version.
