Stylish Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra concept renders downplay ghastly camera bump as leaker claims more phones with rear secondary screens are coming this year
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has been splitting opinions mainly down to the rear display it sports and the fact that the secondary screen is contained in a huge camera housing that juts egregiously from the back of the flagship smartphone. A leaked video of the Mi 11 Ultra has given a good look at the device, and now Ben Geskin has had a crack at coming up with some renders of the Xiaomi phone.
The renders of the Mi 11 Ultra, dressed in black and white, make the smartphone look quite elegant, with the rear screen clearly being used for selfie purposes. The camera equipment and secondary display are housed neatly in a horizontally aligned compartment that if it were that flat in real life would not be as divisive. Fortunately, a commenter on Geskin’s post has left a reminder of the Mi 11 Ultra’s giant camera bump.
Digital Chat Station reckons there will be at least two more smartphones appearing this year featuring a rear-facing secondary display, although there was no mention of which manufacturers might want to join Xiaomi with its Mi 11 Ultra. However, companies like Nubia (former ZTE subsidiary) and Meizu have released dual-display phones in the past with the Nubia X and Meizu Pro 7, so if the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is received well, they might want to jump back on the rear-screen bandwagon again.
