The phone made headlines for its unique triple camera setup, especially with its 50-megapixel 1/1.12-inch sensor. This is accompanied by a 48-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 48-megapixel telephoto camera with 5X optical zoom, OIS, and 10X hybrid zoom.
The Mi 11 Ultra also caught our attention with its Snapdragon 888 chipset and a 6.8-inch QuadHD+ AMOLED display having a refresh rate of 120Hz. The phone also features a tiny OLED display on the rear to act as a viewfinder for the rear cameras.
A 5000mAh battery keeps the phone powered up and it supports 67W fast charging, although you get a 55W adapter in the box. There’s also support for 67W wireless charging.
If the Mi 11 Ultra is out of your budget, Xiaomi also launched two affordable models under the Mi 11X series. The Mi 11X Pro uses the same Snapdragon 888 chipset but starts at Rs 39,990. It loses the Ultra’s cameras but offers Xiaomi’s next best 108-megapixel camera, and a FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
