Leaked Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro details point to a QHD curved display with a punch-hole and a 120 Hz refresh rate
Xiaomi has released a lot of flagships this year, but they all have their compromises. The Mi 10 Ultra may well be the jewel in the crown, but Xiaomi does not sell it outside of China. The Mi 10T Pro is the company's most recent flagship, but it pairs a 144 Hz refresh rate with IPS display technology, rather than the richer AMOLED technology that it uses in other smartphones like the Mi 10 Pro. The latter impressed us when we reviewed it earlier this year, but its 90 Hz refresh rate pales in comparison to newer flagships with AMOLED screens. These three Xiaomi smartphones are all restricted to 1080p too, which is not much of a flagship resolution these days.
The Mi 11 Pro may change all of that though, according to Digital Chat Station. Last month, the leaker claimed that Xiaomi had purchased a '2K high refresh screen', which they have now expanded upon. Apparently, the Mi 11 Pro will have a curved screen and a punch-hole, just like the Mi 10 Pro did this year. Digital Chat Station adds that the size of the punch-hole will be comparable to the one in the Mi 10 Pro, which is about as large as other punch-holes.
A 1440p (QHD) resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate would be an improvement from the 1080p and 90 Hz panel in the Mi 10 Pro, though. Additionally, the Mi 11 Pro is expected to feature the Snapdragon 875 chipset, which Qualcomm is expected to announce next month. Hence, the Mi 11 Pro should offer a healthy performance over the Mi 10 Pro, too.
