After weeks of anticipation, the next-generation’s Xiaomi Mi 11 has finally been been made official in Singapore. Once again, the Mi 11 never fail to impress us with mind-blowing upgrades and industry-leading technologies that make the device one of the most exciting flagship phone this year.
As expected, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is among the first smartphone in the global market to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset which brings better performance in terms of processing, graphics and connectivity than last year’s Snapdragon 865 chipset.
However, that’s just one of the many attractions in store for the Xiaomi Mi 11. Starting with the front, its 6.81-inches AMOLED display is said to be the most expensive display panel among all the current smartphones.
It puts forward an impressive 2K screen resolution paired with a buttery-smooth 120Hz screen refresh rate that promises an immersive graphical experience for its users. To sweeten the deal, there’s also support for 10-bits color depth and a maximum peak brightness of up to 1,500 nits to ensure the screen is always visible under any environment.
Most importantly, the front display is shielded by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus which protects it against accidental drops or scratches. Thanks to its AMOLED panel, the Xiaomi Mi 11 will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner as well.
In the photography department, the Xiaomi Mi 11 comes with a highly-reliable triple-camera system lead by a 108 megapixels (f/1.85 aperture) primary shooter which boasts a 1/1.33 sensor size and a 7P lens.
As for the other two cameras, they will include a 13 megapixels (f/2.4 aperture) ultra-wide camera with 123-degrees field-of-view, as well as a 5 megapixels (f/2.4 aperture) macro camera. Finally, there’s also a 20 megapixels selfie camera at the front for selfie and video-calling purposes.
Moving on, the Xiaomi Mi 11 also brings along a class-leading audio system jointly developed with audiophile specialist Harman Kardon. In terms of connectivity, the device is able to support NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6E, as well as both SA/ NSA 5G modes.
To keep its lights on, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is fueled by a massive 4,600mAh battery that comes with 55W fast wired-charging support and 50W wireless charging support. After all the speculations, the Mi 11 will still be bundled with an in-box 55W GaN charger. On the software-side, it will boot on MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11 OS.
According to Xiaomi Singapore, the Xiaomi Mi 11 will be available in Singapore starting March 20th. It will be available in both 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB memory configurations which are priced at S$999 (US$756) and S$1,099 (US$832) respectively.
The Mi 11 8GB+128GB version will be available as an online exclusive at Xiaomi official stores on Lazada and Shopee, whereas the 8GB+256GB version will be available for purchase online and offline at Authorised Mi Stores and other official retailers in Singapore.
