More details have emerged on the Mi 11 Lite 4G courtesy of the leaks from tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore. His leaked info reveals a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90Hz, a 4520mAh battery with 33W fast charging, and a microSD card slot. The 5G variant, apart from the new chip, has a slightly smaller 4150mAh battery.
Prices for the 4G version with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is said to start at Euro 320 while the 5G variant could get a starting price of Euro 410.
On the other hand, the Mi 11 Ultra is likely to sit at the other end of the price spectrum, outsmarting the Mi 11 as Xiaomi’s 2021 flagship. Leaks have so far revealed a massively upgraded camera system for the Ultra, complete with a secondary display. This display has been shown to act as a viewfinder and even show UI elements.
The Mi 11 Ultra is also said to use Samsung’s 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN2 sensor, which is technically the largest camera sensor a mobile phone can use today. The camera is also said to feature a periscope-based zoom camera system capable of offering up to 100X zoom.
Other highlights on this Mi 11 Ultra include a 5000mAh battery along with 67W fast charging solutions, both via wires and wireless. There’s also a new 6.8-inch Quad HD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz.
