Design: a more polished bet than ever

The design of the front of the Mi 11 is once again tremendously similar to that of its predecessors, as it has been for a while, although it is polished with a front more occupied by screen, exceeding 91%. A) Yes, to recognize it, beyond its curved screen, which is basically something almost general in this range, we will have to look at the rear, where with mobiles like the Xiaomi Mi 10T, Xiaomi is differentiating itself from the competition.

In that sense, the Mi 11 leaves us a camera module heeled to the upper right side of the back. In it, the main camera has a leading role, which has a silver ring that stands out more than the rest of the cameras.

The curved screen seems to reign in the front of the high-end of 2021, as in the Xiaomi Mi 11. The great absence? IP68 certification

On the front, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro has a single camera angled to the left in a panel with hardly any frames, as is normal, and that, yes, it returns to bet on the curves on the sides of the screen.

For the rest, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is a large terminal measuring 6.81 “and 8.06 mm thick, which weighs 196 grams which, without being light, yes it will feel less heavy than many other rivals like the iPhone 12 Pro Max, Huawei Mate 40 or Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. In its body, we miss IP68 resistance certification, as it happened with previous models.

AMOLED screen at 120 HZ: now, Xiaomi is rubbing shoulders with the best

Until this year, Xiaomi had never assembled a panel that for technology, pixel density and refresh rate, could compete with, for example, Samsung in its higher-end models.

However, that has now changed because, finally, Xiaomi leaves Full HD + behind and moves to what they have called 2K, which leaves us with an OLED panel of 515 pixels per inch. They are very little behind the Samsung Galaxy S20 +, but they surpass the proposals of Huawei, Sony, Apple, and practically tie with Oppo and OnePlus. Like Samsung, it also uses Gorilla Glass Victus, which offers the best drop protection and is much improved against scratches.

Where the Mi 11 stands out by far is in maximum brightness, where with 1,771 nits it far exceeds others such as the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which achieves 1,200 nits of maximum brightness in HDR. Also has a touch frequency rate of 480 Hz and a panel refresh rate of 120 Hz, rivaling the best of the rest or even surpassing it.

In addition to a very high brightness and sharpness, among the promises of Xiaomi with this screen stand out a record tactile response and a great calibration

The refresh rate is adaptive, with modes of 30, 60, 90 and 120Hz, which will vary according to the content that we view on the screen. The goal is to save as much battery life as possible.

From Xiaomi, in addition, they have boasted of panel calibration referring to figures measured by DisplayMate, with which they say they are ahead of the iPhone 12 Pro Max when it comes to color fidelity in the available color gamuts.

  Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T, technical sheet with characteristics and price

Power and performance: as always, at the top of what is available in the Android world

Another year, as has been customary, Xiaomi has launched a terminal of the Mi series with the most recent processor presented by Qualcomm. That is, beyond the optimizations of each brand and terminal, Xiaomi once again has the best within what is available beyond proprietary proposals such as Exynos, Kirin or Apple’s A.

This year, the company is betting on the Snapdragon 888, which aims to be the most used of the year, and from which we expect a lot of power in every way, with the adoption of a high-performance X1 cores from ARM, and a GPU that it also grows 35% in rendering power, with efficiency improved by 20% over the previous generation. In total, we talk about 8 core Kryo 680, of which three are A78 at 2.84 GHz and another four are A55 at 1.8 GHz.

  Watches in Family Setup mode will be able to use Apple Pay through Apple Cash Family

The Snapdragon 888 is a guarantee on which Xiaomi can build the best possible user experience

According to Qualcomm’s own tests, we know that in the reference unit, eThis Snapdragon 888 won’t outperform the A14 on Geekbench 5, both in single-core and multi-core performance. Regarding the Kirin 9000, in CPU it seems that there will be practically a tie.

On GPUs, according to Qualcomm testing, it wouldn’t outperform the A14’s peak performance in GFXBench Aztec Ruins either (with screen off), though the key may be in sustained performance, where Qualcomm can win and Xiaomi take advantage of it. We will see it when we analyze the terminals.

  ARCore comes to Pixel 4a, Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite, Galaxy M31s and more

For the RAM and storage, as a base, Xiaomi has chosen to launch a base model with 8 GB + 128 GB, with the latest, ie LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1.

Camera: the best of Xiaomi lacks a telephoto lens to rival the rest

The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a main camera whose sensor 1 / 1.33 “achieves a resolution of 108 megapixels, seven-element lens and optical image stabilizer. It is, like the sensor of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro to which it happens, one of the largest on the market.

On camera, a telephoto lens is missed, like last year

The wide angle is 13 megapixels, allowing you to take pictures with a wider field of view. Finally, we find a 5 megapixel macro sensor, the one that perhaps most out of tune in a mobile of this caliber, however common this 2020 has been.

Against rivals of the price that is expected in Spain according to that of its predecessor, 799 euros, a telephoto lens of at least two magnifications is missing, although for example the iPhone 12 does not include it in that strip.
