The new Xiaomi Mi 11 has now been unclothed in a teardown video revealing its internal components, layout, and design. The phone's camera hardware has also been detailed, although some may consider the 108 MP camera to be on the aging side.

Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 in China a few days ago, with the device instantly getting a positive welcome due to its impressive spec sheet and futures relative to its affordable price tag. The Mi 11 has now been fully unclothed in a teardown video, showing all of its internal bits.

The main talking point of the teardown is the Mi 11's camera setup. The device sports a triple rear camera setup, with a 108 MP camera joined by a 13 MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 5 MP tele-macro camera to make up numbers. 

The 108 MP camera in question is a well-known commodity—Samsung's ISOCELL Bright HMX. That was the first 108 MP sensor in the world and is the same sensor used on phones like the Mi Note 10 and the Mi 10. In essence, it's getting on, and its limitations are beginning to show heavily. Xiaomi, for example, opted for a custom OmniVision sensor on the Mi 10 Ultra which handily outperforms the HMX. This is, perhaps, the biggest corner cut on the Mi 11.

The secondary cameras are Samsung's S5K5E9 and OmniVision's OV13B10 for the ultra-wide shooter. The selfie camera is Samsung's 20 MP S5K3T2. There's no Sony camera hardware present. Other important components include a 4600 mAh BM4X battery made by Sunwoda Electronics. The QHD+ 120 Hz AMOLED is said to be made by Samsung.

Buy the Mi Note 10 Lite on Amazon.
