Xiaomi launches its Mi 11 flagship globally, starting at €749 and shipping with a 55 W charger
Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 on December 28 in China. Over a month after, the company has now brought the flagship phones across its home borders to the global market, with the device being unveiled at a virtual event today.
The Mi 11 is a known quantity at this point. It sports a 6.81-inch AMOLED display with a 120 Hz variable refresh rate and a 480 Hz touch sampling rate. The display itself is regarded as one of the best out there, with a peak brightness of 1500 nits as well as HDR 10+ support. Protection comes from the new Gorilla Glass Victus.
Under the hood is the 5nm Snapdragon 888, supported by up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage and 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Camera-wise, there's a 108 MP sensor at the back serving as the main shooter. It's joined by a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 5 MP tele-macro shooter. At the front, housed within a hole punch is a 20 MP camera for selfies.
Other specifics include NFC, an IR blaster, a 4600 mAh battery, 55W wired charging, 50W wireless fast charging, 10W reverse wireless charging, and stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon. The Mi 11 runs on Android 10-based MIUI 12 software straight out of the box.
The Mi 11 is available in two specs; 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, or 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, costing €749 and €799. That's cheaper than leaks claimed. Thankfully, also, the global Mi 11 will ship with a 55 W charger in the box.
