May 11, Xiaomi’s new flagship arrives with the Snapdragon 888December 29, 2020
Xiaomi has unveiled the first member of its new family of flagship phones. This is the Xiaomi Mi 11 It is called and is undoubtedly the most powerful Android phone in history. May 11 owes this power to Qualcomm’s latest flagship chip, the Snapdragon 888. This new generation phone is May 10 and has experienced many improvements compared to the previous generation and is expected to be named one of the best-selling phones of 2021 due to the competitive price.
May 11 design
In the design of the front panel of the May 11 phone, there is no significant difference with the May 10, and like the previous generation, the selfie camera is installed in the hole in the upper left corner. The point that can be mentioned as an improvement is the complete curvature of the edges and the reduction of the thickness of the device compared to the older model.
A more noticeable change has taken place behind the phone where the main camera sensors are arranged. The design and layout of the sensors on the back of the May 11 has gone the way of many of the handsets introduced in recent months and has taken on a square shape. Xiaomi will launch its latest product in black, light blue, navy blue, purple and brown. Brown and purple use a leather frame, and special editions with a blue frame and wavy design are also called Special Editions.
May 11 is equipped with a 6.81-inch AMOLED display; But the Chinese company was forced to upgrade the screen resolution to QHD + to prevent a drop in pixel density. With this measure, the pixel density of the May 11 display has reached 515 pixels per inch. The display has a brightness of 1,500 nits and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and supports 480 Hz touch. Xiaomi has hired the latest screen protector, Gorilla Glass Victus, to protect this display. Compared to the previous generation, this protector is twice as resistant to scratches and 1.5 times more impact.
108 megapixel camera
In terms of cameras, Xiaomi, like many other companies, has preferred a square layout to a column layout; That is the same arrangement we saw on May 10. The main sensor of Xiaomi’s new 108-megapixel flagship camera is equipped with optical image stabilization and a 13-megapixel ultraviolet sensor with an aperture of f / 1.85 is located just below this sensor, and the 5-megapixel macro sensor and LED flash complete this set. As a result, there will be no optical zoom sensor on May 11, so these sensors may be used in the Pro versions. There is no significant improvement in the May 11 selfie camera, which uses the same 20-megapixel sensor used in the previous model.
Snapdragon 888 processor
The most important positive feature and distinguishing feature of Xiaomi May 11 is its powerful processor. May 11 is the first phone in the world to be equipped with the Snapdragon 888. According to benchmarks, this processor is 55% faster than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 865. Xiaomi has used LPDDR5 RAM with UFS 3.1 memory to maximize processing power in its latest flagship. Utilizing 5G and WiFi 6 technology and stereo speakers developed in collaboration with Harman Kardon are other hardware features of the Mi 11. In the software section, the Android 11 operating system with MIUI 12.5 skin will be responsible for running programs and games.
Battery and price
The battery of the latest Chinese phone is 4,600 mAh, which can be charged wirelessly with a power of 55 watts and wirelessly with a power of 50 watts. Of course, before that, you have to buy the charger separately for fifteen dollars. Despite ridicule from Apple for removing the charger from the box, Xiaomi will launch the May 11 without a charger under similar pretexts. 10-watt reverse charge, support for Quick Charge +4 and Power Delivery 3 are other features of the Mi 11 in the battery section.
The May 11 price in China is approximately $ 612 for the version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage and $ 657 for the version with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage and $ 719 for the most powerful version. It is set at 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Of course, these prices are for the Chinese market, and if the global version is unveiled, the prices will probably be more expensive.
