The Capital City of Beijing, China – March 29, 2021 – Xiaomi, the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world and AIoTs innovator, launched the Xiaomi Mi 11i, which is the Redmi K40 Pro+ in Chinese market, in the global market.
Since this is a rebranded of Redmi K40 Pro+ we already had a great detail as to what this device is built with.
Let’s start with its chip, the device has the most powerful chip currently in the market – the Snapdragon 888. Going to its display, the device boasts its Samsung-made E4 AMOLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate, 360Hz touch sampling rate, 1300nits peak brightness, 900nits typical brightness, and HDR10+. We already had the handset from the Chinese market, and we can tell that the display is very smooth. It’s colors are vivid and respectable.
The handset also features LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. It has two variants: 8GB RAM/128GB ROM and 8GB RAM/256GB ROM. While it has three colors available: Cosmic Black, Frosty White, and Celestial Silver. We are yet to know what is the best color in our eyes since the color variant from the Chinese market has different colors.
At the back, we will see the same camera placement designs they did to POCO F3. Its main shooter module has 108MP, while its ultrawide-angle snapper has 8MP, and lastly, a 5MP macro lens to complete the trio.
On the other hand, they only put a 20MP shooter for its punch-hole selfie camera.
And yes, the phone came with a 33W wall charger brick, while its battery is packed with a 4520mAh.
It’s disappointing that despite the screen is OLED, Xiaomi decided to put the fingerprint scanner on the side together with the power button.
For the pricing, we expect the Mi 11i to have a price tag of less than PHP 25,000 to PHP 28,000.
