The Xiaomi 11T features many of the same qualities that distinguish the high-end smartphones of the Mi 11 series, but at a much lower price. The good configuration includes an AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a brightness of up to 1,000 cd/m², as well as the fast MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC.

With the 11T and the 11T Pro, Xiaomi's T series has two new additions. In terms of features, they're one step below the high-end models, and therefore, they're no competition for the Xiaomi Mi 11 and its counterpart, the Mi 11 Ultra.

Fast charging in 40 minutes

On the outside, the Xiaomi 11T and the 11T Pro are identical, and they're also quite similarly equipped otherwise. The main difference: The 11T Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 888, whereas the 11T uses the MediaTek Dimensity 1200, which is also a high-end SoC that achieves a performance level in the test that is roughly between the Snapdragon 780G and the Snapdragon 865.

Other differences: Dolby Vision and Harman Kardon stereo speakers are only found in the Pro model, as well as the 120-watt charger. In contrast, the 11T can "only" be charged at 67 watts, which still gets the smartphone battery from 0% to 100% in just under 40 minutes.

At least 100 Euros (~$116) less expensive than the 11T Pro

Given the choice between the Xiaomi 11T and the 11T Pro, the 11T might be the more interesting option, since the base model with 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 storage officially starts at 550 Euros (~$634), which is 100 Euros (~$116) less than what the 11T Pro costs with the same storage configuration. The 11T costs 600 Euros (~$696) in its maxed-out configuration with 256 GB of storage. Due to the lack of a microSD slot, however, storage can't be expanded. This is also true for the 11T Pro.

The 11T scores points in the test with its very bright 120 Hz AMOLED display, with brightness levels that come close to the 1,000 cd/m² mark as promised by the manufacturer, making it ideal for outdoor use and HDR video playback. Appropriately, the Xiaomi smartphone supports HDR10+, while Dolby Vision is reserved for the 11T Pro.

My fascination for computers started with the C64. Since then, I’ve put everything that comes my way in terms of hardware through its paces. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and the first PC with an 8088 CPU, my list of projects has grown increasingly longer. For more than 20 years now I have also turned my hobby into my profession and have been active in the mobile section of Notebookcheck since 2021. Before that, I worked as a hardware editor for IDG Media (tecChannel.de) and VNU Business Publications (PC professional), among others.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
