Xiaomi has announced its latest flagship for 2021, the Mi 11, for global markets. The phone was announced back in China in December, and just like during the Chinese launch, there is no Mi 11 Pro. We expect that model to launch later.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Specifications and Features
The Mi 11 has a curved AMOLED display that measures 6.81-inches with a 3200 x 1440 resolution and a punch-hole at the top left corner for the front-facing camera. The display has a 120Hz AdaptiveSync refresh rate, and what this means is that it automatically switches between 30Hz to 120Hz refresh rates based on the content on the screen. The screen is covered with Gorilla Glass Victus while the curved back is covered in Gorilla Glass 5.
Xiaomi says the phone has set 13 new DisplayMate Records including the phone with the highest native color gamut, highest contrast ratio, and highest visible screen resolution. The Mi 11 can also upscale content to up to 3x their original resolution. Another feature of the display is an in-display heart r ate scanner that allows the user to measure their heart rate at any time.
The new flagship phone is the first in the world to be powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor. Unlike the Chinese variant that comes in 8GB RAM and 12GB RAM variants, the global version is only available with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and comes in 128GB and 256GB storage options.
There are three cameras on the back of the Xiaomi Mi 11. The primary sensor is a 108MP wide-angle camera and included with it is a 13MP 123° ultrawide angle camera and a 5MP “telemacro” camera. Save for the 5MP macro camera, all the other cameras including the 20MP selfie camera have support for Night Mode photography.
Xiaomi is marketing the phone as a camera powerhouse that can be used to shoot movies.Some of its camera features include support for 8K and HDR10+ video recording. It also has an ultra night video mode and 8 cinematic video filters to give your videos that professional look.
The Mi 11 packs a 4600mAh battery capacity and supports 55W fast wired charging, 50W fast wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging. Both the wireless and fast wireless charging technology allows you to charge the phone from empty to full in less than 1 hour. And unlike the Chinese version which doesn’t come with a charger in the box (users can get a charger for free), the global version of the phone is bundled with a 55W GaN charger in the box. It also comes with an antibacterial screen protector and case.
Other features of the phone are Bluetooth 5.2, WiFi 6, an in-display fingerprint scanner, Harman Kardon stereo speakers, an IR blaster, and a USB-C port. The phone runs MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11 out of the box.

The Mi 11 will sell for €749 for the 8+128GB version while the 8+256GB version will sell for €799. The phone will be available in Cloud White, Midnight Gray, and Horizon Blue. Xiaomi says that the Mi 11 Lei Jun edition will also be available in limited quantities at a later date.
