Xiaomi's Mi 11 Ultra features a secondary display on its rear but has received criticism for the poor implementation of that feature. That is set to change shortly, as new information indicates that an upcoming build will allow modes like video recording, portrait, and a bunch of other camera modes on the rear display.

Xiaomi released the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra a while back, with the phones debuting the biggest CMOS sensors ever seen on a smartphone yet at launch. The Mi 11 Ultra also had an extra feature in its arsenal—a secondary display at its back.

While the Mi 11 Ultra's rear display isn't the first of its kind, it rightfully earned headline spots for being the first flagship from a mainstream brand with such a feature. Sadly, though, reviews were mixed, with most denoting the display's limited utility. That weakness looks set to be fixed shortly.

Going by information revealed today on Weibo, the latest internal beta build for the Mi 11 Ultra enables its rear display to do a slew of things it's been panned for being unable to do. That includes video recording, slow motion, time-lapse, portrait mode, and night mode. The whole gallery, essentially. 

It's unknown when this build will make its way to the public, but it shouldn't take more than a few months at most. It would also make the Mi 11 Ultra into an even more incredible camera device, making it the undisputed top choice for the selfie-snapping crowd.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017.
