Latest MIUI 12 code lends credence to reports of a QHD+ display on the Mi 11 Pro
Xiaomi ended production and sales of the Mi 10 Pro weeks ago in preparation of the release of its next generation of flagships, the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro. Information about the duo has slowly circulated over the past few weeks, and a new report has all but verified one such leak.
The good fellows over at XDA-Developers have discovered obvious references to a device with a QHD+ resolution in new MIUI 12 code. The code includes strings that allude to a FHD+ mode and a QHD+ mode, with the latter having higher power consumption consequences. There also appears to be a battery saver mode which will lower resolution to FHD+ when activated. That's typical, of course.
Reports have also touted the Mi 11 Pro to offer a QHD+ display. We expect it to be a QHD+ 120 Hz OLED panel, which will see Xiaomi finally match the OnePlus and Samsung in that regard. This would also be Xiaomi's first phone with a QHD+ display, and would be a strong statement of intent by the company to build on the success of the Mi 10 Pro by cementing the lineup as a strong rival to the usual flagship juggernauts made by Google, Apple, and Samsung.
