Xiaomi has unveiled the latest addition to its flagship line of Xiaomi Mi smartphones. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra features an in-display fingerprint sensor, Snapdragon 888 processor, 256 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM.
However, the most unique features of the phone are located on the back of the device. The Mi 11 Ultra has a huge 1 / 1.12 inch camera sensor, allowing the phone to pick up more light and take better photos in virtually any environment. The camera array includes a 50 MP main sensor, a 48 MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 48 MP telephoto sensor, in addition to a 20 MP front camera.
The back of the phone also has a 1.1 inch AMOLED display. The rear screen can be used to mirror the larger screen on the front of the phone, although its small size limits its appeal for regular applications. Instead, the screen is primarily designed to help with selfies and notifications, and to provide people with a low-power viewing option in an emergency.
The device’s in-display fingerprint sensor is presumably courtesy of Goodix, who previously provided the sensor for the original Mi 11 model. This sensor supports heart rate detection in addition to fingerprint authentication.
Goodix sensors have already appeared in the Redmi K30 Pro and in various Mi series devices. The Redmi K40 series, on the other hand, eschews the in-display sensor in favor of a new side fingerprint sensor from FPC.
In China, the 8/256 GB model will cost 5,999 (approximately $ 914 USD), while the more robust 12/256 GB model will cost 6,499 (approximately $ 990) and the high-end 16/256 GB model will reach 6999 (closer of US $ 1,065). The mid-range model will cost € 1,200 in Europe, although Xiaomi has yet to reveal details about the phone’s international availability.
