Xiaomi is preparing for the launch of the next batch of devices in the Mi 11 series. The Mi 11 series, which currently only includes the Mi 11, will soon join the Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, and possibly the Mi 11 Lite. Yesterday Xiaomi teased a product launch event that will take place next week. However, the company has not said anything about the new Mi phones. Now the company has officially confirmed that it will indeed launch Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra at the event.
In a Weibo post, Xiaomi has announced that it will hold a launch event in China on March 29, where the company will remove the curtains from the highly anticipated Mi 11 Ultra and Mi 11 Pro. The launch event starts at 7:30 am GMT and will be broadcast live on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Xiaomi’s global website.
Both the Mi 11 Ultra and the Mi 11 Pro have been heavily leaked in recent weeks, so we have a good idea of what to expect from these upcoming devices. The Mi 11 Ultra will be the most premium of the duo. As revealed in a leaked hands-on video, it will feature an exotic design, with a curved quad screen and a large horizontally-oriented camera island that also includes a small secondary screen.
It is rumored to include a 6.81-inch QHD + AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, up to 16GB LPDDR5 + RAM, up to 512GB UFS 3.1 storage, a 50MP + 48MP + 48 MP rear camera, and a 5000 mAh battery with 67 W wired and wireless support for fast charging.
On the other hand, the Mi 11 Pro is expected to have a design language largely similar to that of the regular Mi 11 but will feature a different camera island on the back. In terms of specifications, it is rumored to feature the same 6.81-inch QHD + 120Hz quad-curved display as the Mi 11 Ultra alongside the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.
Unlike the Ultra model, it is expected to come with a four-camera setup consisting of a 50MP primary sensor, 13MP ultra-wide angle camera, 5MP macro lens, and telephoto sensor with a zoom lens up to 120X.
With the official launch coming Monday, we won’t have to wait too long to find out what Xiaomi’s 2021 flagship has in store for us.
Xiaomi previously asked users if they would like to buy a ~ $ 1,500 phone from the company, suggesting the Mi 11 Ultra won’t come cheap unless Xiaomi is talking about a foldable phone.
