Xiaomi will launch the Mi 11T and Redmi K40 Ultra later this year and details of the devices have now surfaced. The revealed specs are unlikely to thrill fans of the series, however, thanks to a MediaTek chipset and lackluster camera hardware across the board.

Over the past few weeks, multiple leaks have revealed tidbits about Xiaomi's upcoming sub-premium devices, the Mi 11T series. Most of those leaks have been positive, but the latest one yet could very well dampen the excitement of expectant fans. 

According to new information from Xiaomiui, the Mi 11T, codenamed "Amber", will be powered by a MediaTek processor. Public opinion typically leans towards Qualcomm's Snapdragon series being better than MediaTek's offerings. As such, this is unlikely to thrill fans of the series, especially since the Mi 9T and Mi 10T were both equipped with Snapdragon chipsets.

Supposedly, the Mi 11T's main camera will be OmniVision's OV64B. Not a bad sensor per se but that's the same sensor used on the Redmi Note 10, and fans may have been expecting more powerful hardware. The 64 MP main camera will be joined by an IMX355 sensor behind an ultra-wide lens. The IMX355 is an 8 MP sensor from 2018 that was used on the Pixel 3's selfie camera. Hardly sensational. The third camera will be a 3x tele-macro shooter. 

It appears Xiaomi will launch an identical device as the Redmi K40 Ultra in China. That device, codenamed "Agate", will offer the same hardware while replacing the 64 MP camera with a 108 MP HM2—the main sensor on the Redmi Note 10 Pro. The Redmi K40 Ultra will use the same software as the Mi 11T thanks to a shared chipset. The Redmi K30 Ultra was powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, so we can expect both the Mi 11T and Redmi K40 Ultra to sport MediaTek's Dimensity 1200.

Buy the Mi 10T on Amazon.

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. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
