Xiaomi Mi 11 long review has been published. Its Xiaomi Mi 11 went official just three days before the much-anticipated year-end of 2020. While the year 2020 didn’t turn out to be the catalyst for change that we had hoped for it to be, however, the Mi 11 is spearheading the new generation flagships, and we’re eagerly awaiting its launch.
The world debut took place a couple of weeks after the Chinese launch, and the international model of the Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone is available. It’s the only (announced) phone to feature the most recent Snapdragon 888 processor, but it’s more.
Mi 11 is a significant upgrade. Mi 11 brings a lot of significant improvements compared to its predecessor Mi 10. It has a larger 6.81″ AMOLED display with an increased resolution of 1440p and a more rapid 120Hz refresh rate. The screen has HDR10+ support, and its maximum brightness is astonishing 1500 nits.
Another plus is the support for native 10-bit colors that allow the Mi 11 to display up to 1 billion colors. We’ve talked about the new Snapdragon 888 processor; however, it’s not surprising as everyone expects the most recent top phone to feature the most potent hardware available.

It’s not uncommon for an updated screen, and a brand new processor can suffice for upgrading. The Mi 11 seems to be sporting the same camera equipment as the Mi 10, though Xiaomi has added some new tricks for the video to help those who want to make popular movies that have similar effects to Hollywood.
Its 108MP primary camera, ultrawide 13MP and 20MP selfie camera are all reminiscent of Xiaomi’s Mi 10 with minor changes; however, the macro camera is upgraded with a 5MP sensor that is a higher resolution with autofocus as well as the 48mm macro lens.
The battery also has seen some improvements. While it’s smaller (4600mAh instead of. 4760mAh), It’s also been divided into two pieces, which is why it’s able to be recharged quickly wirelessly and wired at 50W and 55W, respectively. Xiaomi has even provided the perfect 55W GaN charging charger for this.
The Mi 11 has an updated stereo speaker system that has been adjusted by Harman/Kardon to provide the best satisfaction. The speakers were found to be waterproof, also, and although there’s no officially-issued IP rating, it’s an excellent indicator.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Unboxing
Mi 11 was supposed to be the first phone from Xiaomi to come in the box that was not charged. But, unlike Samsung, Xiaomi’s plans appear to have been thwarted due to the pressure of its customers. In Asian markets, the phone will come with a slimmer box without charging.
However, don’t worry about it. Xiaomi lets you request a charger in any Mi 11 order if you would like one. You will get a 55W GaN adapter at no cost. In the meantime, everyone else in the world will receive the 55W GaN charger in the retail box automatically.
We’ve got our own EU variant of the Mi 11 here, and it is packed in an ordinary-sized cardboard box. Apart from the 55W charger and Mi 11, it also comes with a USB-C cable that is rated 6A and a clear silicone case. We nearly missed the final item in the bundle that retails – it’s a USB-C-to-3.5mm adapter to your favorite wired headphones. It was hidden in a small sleeve of paper.
It’s been a while since we last had such a product. Xiaomi has also launched a lovely A the Pixel fabric case that is stylish and comfortable. The Chinese text on the back states that it’s an imitation composed of PU+PC. In reality, everything, in this case, is made from plastic, including fibers. It’s not cheap at all, the opposite.
