Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Ultra Comes With a Huge Camera Bump And Selfie OLED Screen
The Mi 11 Ultra comes with some serious hardware for photography, Xiaomi has revealed its latest flagship, the Mi 11 Ultra. It’s based on the excellent new Mi 11 but it will come with a more advanced camera system — which includes a second screen housed inside the camera bump.
The Mi 11 Ultra has three cameras on the back: a 1/1.12-inch 50-megapixel main sensor, a 48-megapixel ultrawide, and a 48-megapixel 5x periscope telephoto. Those sensors should be upgrades across the board when compared to the regular Mi 11, which had a smaller 108-megapixel main sensor, a 13-megapixel ultrawide, and a 5-megapixel macro camera, yes macro so you can take photos of Corona.
The camera bump rules the top portion of the Mi 11 Ultra smartphone, and its second screen is the reason why. It’s a 1.1-inch 126 x 294 OLED display with a top brightness of 450 nits and a power-saving mode. Xiaomi says it can be used as a selfie screen, an always-on display, or a way to check notification beeps when the phone is face-down.
The specs are very similar to the regular Mi 11. There’s a 6.8-inch 120Hz 1440p OLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. The battery is improved to 5,000mAh and is now capable of being fast-charged at 67W both wirelessly and with a cable.
Xiaomi is also going to release a cut-down version of the Mi 11 called the Mi 11 Lite 5G. It looks very similar to the regular Mi 11 but it’s more of a mid-range phone. It’s the first phone to release with the new Snapdragon 780 processor that Qualcomm announced last week, for example. The stress is on its slim and light design — it’s just 6.81mm thick.
Xiaomi hasn’t released the pricing or the release date for the Mi 11 Ultra and the Mi 11 Lite just yet — stay tuned.
