Among the three new Mi 11 phones announced today is the Mi 11 Pro which comes with significant upgrades over the standard version that was announced back in December.
Mi 11 Pro Design
The Mi 11 Pro isn’t the thinnest of devices out there but Xiaomi manages to keep the thickness under 9mm and the weight at 208 grams even with the massive 5000mAh battery.
The phone has a curved display and a curved back made of glass too. It keeps the camera housing design of the Mi 11 and comes in three colors including a purple that has a frosted finish.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro Specifications
The phone has a 6.81-inch curved Samsung E4 AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The 10bit display also has Dolby Vision, a first for a Xiaomi phone. Other features are an SGS display protection certification, a maximum brightness of 1700 nits, Corning Gorilla Glass Victus for protection, and a Display Mate A+ rating. It also has an HDR10+certification. Xiaomi says it has also applied an antibacterial quad-curved screen protector, so you don’t need to get one. You also get an antibacterial case in the box.
There is a Snapdragon 888 processor powering it and it is paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. There is a phase-changing cooling system that helps to keep the device cool. Xiaomi claims that in their test, after 30 minutes of Genshin Impact gameplay, the temperature was 49.3° celsius.
Just like the standard version, you get Harmon Kardon stereo speakers. There is also NFC, an IR blaster, Wi-Fi 6E, and an IP68 rating which is also a first for a Xiaomi phone. The Mi 11 Pro runs MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11 out of the box.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro Cameras
The camera department is one of the major upgrades over the standard Mi 11. For the Pro’s main rear camera, Xiaomi has adopted the 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 super sensor with a 1/1.12″ sensor size, the largest camera sensor in a mobile phone. It is also the first camera with a Dual Pixel Pro and has Dual Native ISO Fusion, Stagger HDR, an f/1.95 aperture, OIS, and an 8P lens.
Below it is an 8MP f/3.4 periscope zoom lens with OIS and up to 5x optical zoom, 50x digital zoom, and a focal length of 120mm. The third camera is a 123° 13MP f/2.4 ultrawide angle camera with a 5P lens like the periscope camera. A dual-tone LED flash sits beside the camera housing.
The phone can record in 8K and can also record slow-motion videos at 1920 fps.
