Xiaomi is all set to launch the Xiaomi Mi 11 series of smartphones on Dec. 29 in China. The Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro phones will be the world’s first phones to arrive with the newly unveiled Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform. With nearly a week remaining for the launch, the company is revealing key features of the Mi 11 series. Today, the company released a few Weibo posts to showcase the performance of the Snapdragon 888 SoC.
As can be seen in the images shared by Xiaomi President Lei Jun, the Xiaomi Mi 11 has scored 1135 in the single-core test of the Geekbench 5. It scored 3818 in its multi-core test. The images confirm that the Mi 11 with SD888 onboard can easily outscore its predecessor Snapdragon 965 SoC, and its rivalling chipset, the Kirin 9000.
The 5nm Snapdragon 888 SoC is equipped with one Kryo 680 (ARM Cortex-X1) that clocks at 2.84GHz, three Kryo 680 (Cortex A78 cores) that works at 2.42GHz, and four Kyro 680 (Cortex-A55 cores) that ticks at 1.8GHz. The SoC includes Adreno 660 GPU. While the SD888 has the more powerful A78 architecture CPU, the Kirin 9000 is equipped with a weaker A77 core.
Xiaomi also confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi 11 series will come equipped with enhanced version of Wi-Fi 6. It offers twice the bandwidth supported by the previous generation. It comes with 20 percent improved transmission information density. The result is that it offers 2.1 times faster network speeds of up to 3.5Gbps.
In related news, a new report by Mydrivers that cites information from TrendMicro states that the topmost version in the Mi 11 series will be equipped with 3rd generation under-screen camera technology developed by Xiaomi. Its photography experience is said to be almost same as a conventional front-facing camera. This Mi 11 model may start selling in March next year.
