The latest rumours about the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra from China may seem unlikely, but Ice Universe has given them their backing. Earlier this week, it emerged that Xiaomi had set a release date for the pair on March 29. Incidentally, the company is expected to start teasing the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra from March 23. While we are yet to see any hint of this, Ice Universe asserts that Xiaomi will be announcing another flagship smartphone before April arrives.

Additionally, Ice Universe has reiterated that Xiaomi will use Samsung's ISOCELL GN2, a 50 MP camera sensor that the latter unveiled last month. The 1/1.12-inch sensor is currently the largest of any designed for smartphones, while also offering a pixel size of 1.4 um. Moreover, the ISOCELL GN2 can upscale to 100 MP and has an improved autofocus mode that Samsung calls Dual Pixel Pro (PDAF). Theoretically, the ISOCELL GN2 should deliver excellent low-light performance, which is an area in which many smartphone camera sensors still struggle.

Accordingly, Ice Universe believes that the ISOCELL GN2 'will bring an unprecedented experience', although we would reserve judgement until we see the camera sensor in action. Xiaomi is expected to release the Mi 11 Ultra globally, but it is unclear if the Mi 11 Pro will make it out of China. Both devices may come with a secondary screen next to their camera housings though, as we have reported.
