Xiaomi’s next flagship smartphone is the Mi 11 Ultra. Essentially, the new phone is an upgraded version of the Mi 11. However, the Mi 11 Ultra offers a big camera upgrade and an OLED screen.
Xiaomi included an OLED screen on the Ultra
The phone’s back bump is much larger than most phones. The reason for this is the Mi 11 has a second screen on its back, a 1.1-inch 126 x 294 OLED display with a peak brightness of 450 nits. According to Xiaomi, the screen can be work as a selfie viewfinder, an always-on display, or an easy way to check notifications while your phone is facing down. It’s an interesting feature, allowing vloggers to use their front cameras to film their videos, rather than the front camera. This allows vloggers to capture higher quality video on their phones because typically rear cameras record higher quality.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra’s cameras
In total, the Mi 11 Ultra houses three back cameras. The three cameras are a 1/1.12-inch 50-megapixel main sensor, a 48-megapixel ultrawide, and a 48-megapixel 5x periscope telephoto. Overall, the Mi 11 Ultra’s have the original Mi 11 beat. The original features a 108-megapixel main sensor, a 13-megapixel ultrawide, and a 5-megapixel macro camera. The Ultra model makes improvements across the board.
Everything else is the same
The rest of the specs are almost the same as the original Mi 11. The Mi 11 Ultra has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 6.8-inch 120Hz 1440p OLED display, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. Xiaomi did increase the battery to 5,000mAh. It’s also capable of fast charging at 67W with either a cable or wirelessly.
