The Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone went official yesterday as the first Snapdragon 888 SoC powered handset. In February this year, the Chinese manufacturer announced the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. However, the company did not utter anything about the Pro model at the MI 11 unveiling event. Fresh information suggests that the Mi 11 Pro will break cover at some after the Spring Festival of China (aka Lunar New Year), which will take place on Feb. 12.
Recently, a netizen asked the reliable tipster Digital Chat Station about the arrival of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro. He responded that he had previously claimed that the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro will not launch together. He also added that only the vanilla model was expected to go official before the Spring Festival.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro phones came with identical display, chipset, and front-facing camera. Both phones came with quad cameras led by a 108-megapixel. However, their auxiliary cameras were different. Also, they came with different sized batteries.
Hence, it is likely that the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro could be may borrow the 6.81-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 888 chipset, a 20-megapixel front camera, and a 108-megapixel main rear camera from the Mi 11 handset. However, the rear camera setup of the Mi 11 Pro may have different auxiliary lenses and it could be coming with a different battery.
When the tipster was previously asked what better features will the Mi 11 Pro will offer over the vanilla. He replied by saying that the Pro model will have better cameras and faster-charging capabilities. It remains to be seen whether the phone arrives with a 120W or 100W rapid charger. Also, it was reported in various Chinese publications last week that the Mi 11 Pro could be the company’s first phone with an under-display camera.
