Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra leaks out with massive rear camera bump that includes a secondary rear display
Xiaomi is fresh from the global launch of its high-end Mi 11 which well and truly whet the appetite of smartphone fans keen for a sequel to the even more upmarket Mi 10 Ultra. However, we weren’t expecting to see or hear more about the Mi 11 Ultra for while yet until it suddenly broke cover today thanks to a Phillipino-based YouTuber Tech Buff PH leaking it on the internet this morning. At the time of writing, however, the clip has since been pulled down which only lends veracity to the authenticity of the leak.
Based on what we can see in the video and still images, the Mi 11 Ultra has a very similar looking rear camera bump to the one that extends across the rear of the Cyberpunk 2077-themed OnePlus 8T. The Mi 11 Ultra levels things up considerably, however, by including a very small, but cool, secondary screen on the rear within the camera housing. This could allow users being shot to get a sense of how they are framed while it will also make it easier to take selfies using the higher-quality rear cameras.
According to Tech Buff PH, the camera array features a 50 MP main sensor along with a 48 MP wide-angle sense and a 48 MP periscope telephotos zoom lens. Where the Mi 11 Ultra featured a 5x zoom, hopes are that Xiaomi will level this up to at least a 10x optical zoom this time. Rest of the specs include a 6.8-inch quad-curved OLED display with a WQHD+ resolution and a 120 Hz adaptive refresh rate protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. This is joined by a 5,000 mAh battery, Harman/Kardon tuned audio, a Snapdragon 888 SoC, 67 W wired fast-charging and 67 W wireless fast-charging.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is set to officially launch in either April or May.
