After months of rumours and leaks, Xiaomi unveiled it’s no flagship the Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11 Pro. The Mi 11 Ultra sports a secondary-display in its triple-camera setup and packs a punch enough to dethrone the likes of OnePlus 9 and other flagships in the similar category. Let’s take a look at everything Xiaomi released this Sunday.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra

The Xiaomi 11 Ultra comes with a giant 6.8-inch AMOLED Screen with Quad HD+ resolution. Like most flagships on the playground, the phone also features a 120Hz refresh rate which will make consuming content a joy to experience.

The Mi 11 Ultra is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, the same SoC which powers some other flagships like Samsung S21, OnePlus 9 pro, to name a few. The processor is complemented by a 12GB Ram and a snappy 512GB UFS 3.1 Storage.

One of the biggest ways that the Mi 11 Ultra is expected to set itself apart is its camera. The smartphone comes with a triple camera setup which includes a 50MP primary shooter with OSI support, a 48MP Sony ultra-wide sensor, and a 48MP tele-macro camera which will support up to 5x optical zoom and 120x digital zoom. And to neatly wrap things up, Xiaomi also claims that all the three cameras are fully capable to shoot videos up to 8K.

Turning the phone around, one would see a single 20 MP camera. Although the number may underwhelm a lot of selfie shooters, the triple camera setup houses a small multi-functional display through which the users can take selfies with the phone’s powerful rear camera. On top of that, the secondary display can also display notifications such as battery level, weather alerts, among others.

All of these features and numbers wouldn’t amount to much if there isn’t enough juice in the phone. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer knows that and has added a huge 5,000 mAh battery that supports up to 67W fast charging, both wired and wireless.
