A potential Xiaomi Mi 11 could be released in the first few months of 2021 according to a noted tipster. The premium Xiaomi smartphone, which could end up being the expected Mi 11 and feature an under-display camera, will join an unknown Vivo phone and become one of the first devices to sport the rumored Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC.

It appears Xiaomi is already well ahead in the planning stage in regard to a Snapdragon 875-powered smartphone, which has been suggested could well end up being the Xiaomi Mi 11 (or even the Xiaomi Mi 20 if the Chinese OEM chooses a new model-numbering system like it did with the Mi Note 10). Respected tipster Digital Chat Station has offered up some new details about the potential upcoming flagship device.

According to the leaker, Xiaomi and Vivo have some Snapdragon 875 smartphones in the works, with a potential release date of “before the Spring Festival”. Spring Festival is another name for the Chinese New Year, which for 2021 starts on February 12, so it seems there could be more signs of the Xiaomi Mi 11 appearing over the coming months.

Rumors about this next likely premium-priced flagship device from Xiaomi have been floating around for a while now, and one of the rumors that seems to pop up more than the others is that the Mi 11 will sport an under-display camera (UDC) system to allow the smartphone to have a full-screen display. With Xiaomi recently showing off its third-generation UDC solution with a modified Mi 10 Ultra device, this particular feature for the SD 875-powered device appears to be a likelihood.
