The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra stops by Geekbench with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and 12 GB of RAM ahead of its March 29 launch
One of Xiaomi's next flagship smartphones has made its way to Geekbench. The listing does not reveal the smartphone by name, but its model number and motherboard name point to it being the Mi 11 Ultra. Xiaomi is expected to launch the Mi 11 Ultra next week alongside the Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Lite and a new Mi Mix device, which will be the first since 2019.
Geekbench refers to the device as 'star', a codename that Max Weinbach mentioned last month. Additionally, Weinbach stated that 'star' corresponded to the model number M2102K1G, which has been certified by the EEC, Indonesian Telecom Certification agency and at TÜV SÜD in the last few months. The G denotes that the M2102K1G is a global model, with the M2102K1C its Chinese sibling. Accordingly, the TENAA has certified the M2102K1C for sale in China. Xiaomi has hinted that it plans to release the Mi 11 Ultra globally, too.
The Geekbench listing confirms that the Mi 11 Ultra has 12 GB of RAM and Snapdragon 888 SoC, a combination that we would expect to see from a Xiaomi flagship smartphone. Xiaomi sells 12 GB version of the Mi 11 already though, so we imagine that the company will also release the Mi 11 Ultra with 16 GB of RAM. Unsurprisingly, the device more or less matches the performance of the Mi 11 in Geekbench.
Furthermore, Geekbench describes the Mi 11 Ultra as running Android 11, although it is unclear if that is the MIUI 12 or MIUI 12.5 version of Google's latest OS. Either way, the Mi 11 Ultra will feature some exciting battery technology, as we have already reported.
