Just a week after Chinese tech giant Xiaomi officially put up the flagship Mi 11 series for sales, the first broken unit has been spotted and it is badly damaged in an awkward manner. The actual owner of the broken device is unknown but the damaged device was posted on the Chinese social app Weibo.
From the picture, it can be seen that the Mi 11 frame is bent backward nearly making an angle of 90 degrees close to the lower part of the camera module. The bend also narrowly missed the power button but resulted in the shattering of the rear glass panel.

Several reasons have been propounded as to what caused the damage with some even suggesting that the user was attempting to transform the device into a foldable phone.
Xiaomi Mi 11 is equipped with Snapdragon 888 chip, the first device to pack Qualcomm’s last flagship SoC. The device also comes with a 2K 120Hz curved screen, 4600mAh battery, supports 55W wired, 50W wireless, and 10W wireless reverse charging. The main camera is a 100MP Samsung HMX sensor, Harman Kardon stereo dual speakers, among other features.
Just like other Xiaomi flagship models, the Mi 11 utilizes a front and rear glass design with an aluminum mid-frame. That isn’t all, the device uses the latest Corning Gorilla Glass Victus which is the strongest glass protection around presently. Thus, whatever that would’ve broken the model pictured above must have been a strong force. We’ll update this story if any new detail emerges. you can also check out our full Xiaomi Mi 11 review
