Xiaomi Launches New Mi 11 With “Studio Grade” Camera
Xiaomi has unveiled its new flagship Mi 11 smartphone, saying it offers studio-grade camera features and pro performance.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, the follow-up to the Chinese manufacturer’s Mi 10 features a 108MP triple rear camera array, 50W wireless charging, Harmon Kardon dual speakers, and the new MIUI user interface based on Android 10.
Xiaomi is spruiking the camera as “the ultimate pocket-sized movie studio”, with a 108MP wide-angle shooter, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 5MP telemacro lens on the back and a 20MP hole-punch selfie camera on the front. Its primary, ultra-wide, and front cameras all feature night mode shooting, and it is capable of recording HDR10+ video.
The Mi 11’s display is a 6.81” AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, and features a WQHD+ resolution and 10-bit colour quality.
“Boasting a 480Hz touch sampling rate and in-screen fingerprint sensor, Mi 11 allows users to smoothly and swiftly unlock their device without intrusive notches or bezels blocking the display.
“Along with its sleek lightweight body and timeless look, Mi 11 offers a comfortable swiping experience and in-hand feel with its quad-curved smooth edges and rear glass finishing,” the company said.
The battery is 4600mAh, and features 55W wired, 50W wireless, and 10W reverse charging; in addition, a gallium nitride (GaN) USB-C fast charger is included in the box.
Australian availability or pricing have yet to be announced, but the Mi 11 will be coming to retailers, according to local marketing. The European price of €749 converts to around $1175 AUD for the model with 128GB storage, going up to €799 ($1250 AUD) for 256GB storage.
Xiaomi lists Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, and Officeworks as official Australian retailers on its website.
