The Mi 11 flagship by Xiaomi made its global debut earlier this week after its release in China two months ago. The Mi 11 will be a proper lineup comprising of different models. One of these models will be the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra that has just surfaced in a huge leak. It made an appearance in a video shared by a YouTube channel Tech Buff PH and even though that video has now been taken down, it was too late for damage control.
The alleged Mi 11 Ultra features a triple camera setup on the back panel. It is the camera module design and size that stands out immediately. It is pretty huge in size which is not surprising as it claims to deliver an insane 120X zoom. This is exactly what we saw with the Mi 10 Ultra as well. The high-zoom capabilities mean that the phone will have a periscope sensor for sure.
It is claimed to feature a 50-megapixel primary sensor, a 48-megapixel wide-angle sensor, and a 48-megapixel periscopic telephoto sensor. The YouTuber has shown two Mi 11 Ultra units, one in Black color and another in White color. The Black unit's camera module has “120X, 12-120mm, 1:1.95-4.1” written and the White one has “120X Ultra Pixel AI Camera”. The exact reason behind different branding is unknown but it seems like these are just different prototypes of the phone.
Another interesting bit of thing to note about the Mi 11 Ultra is the presence of a secondary display on the back. The video does not go much into details about this second display but as per the visible shots, it seems like this display can show the complete launcher getting used. One of the best use cases for such a display would be to use rear cameras for clicking higher-quality selfies but we will have to wait if Xiaomi has planned something more and better.
Here are the alleged Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra specifications:
- 6.8-inch Quad HD+ OLED curved display with punch-hole, 120Hz refresh rate, and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with 5G support
- 20-megapixel selfie camera
- 5,000mAh battery
- 67W fast charging wired, 67W fast charging wireless, and 10W reverse wireless charging
- IP68 rating for dust and water resistance
- Harmon/Kardon tuned speakers
As far as the Mi 11 Ultra launch date and pricing details are concerned, there are no details on that yet. There will likely be more rumors and leaks in lead up to the official launch and we will keep you updated with all the developments.
