Some new renders of the Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone have appeared on Chinese social media. The images clearly look like fan-made concept designs rather than official renders from the OEM itself. It’s believed the upcoming Mi 11 will sport a Snapdragon 875 processor and attract buyers with an under-display selfie camera.

More renders of the Xiaomi Mi 11 (or Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro even) have appeared on Weibo, and they look vastly different from those that appeared in Chinese media back in July. While there’s still a full-screen display to gaze upon thanks to the widely expected under-display camera unit, the shape of the Mi 11 and its rear-facing camera setup are much different in the latest renders.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 pictured here appears to have a “waterfall” type display that falls gracefully over the sides of the smartphone, which seems to have a surprisingly square-shaped form to it that is somewhat reminiscent of 2013’s Xiaomi Mi 3 device. Curved edges and sides have been de rigueur for the majority of smartphones over recent years, so it would be a daring change for Xiaomi to go “square”.

The rear-facing camera housing looks quite egregious in these Xiaomi Mi 11 renders, which are more likely to be fan-made efforts than leaked images from an official source. With a flagship device like the Mi 10T Pro managing to pack its quad camera system into a neat arrangement, it’s hard to imagine Xiaomi would take a backward step by placing such an unsightly block on the rear. The tech tipster on Weibo also mentions the SD 875 and 150x zoom for the Mi 11, which could see the light of day in the first quarter of 2021.
