Some of the key details that have been leaked reveal that the smartphone could come with a Quad HD+ display, which is expected to support a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen is also expected to incorporate a punch-hole with a curved form factor.

Mi 11 Pro to get dual-cell 5,000mAh battery
Another smartphone in the Mi 11 series is expected to the be Mi 11 Pro. We have seen multiple rumors regarding the same previously and the recent one suggests that it will get a dual-cell 5,000mAh battery. This information comes from the same source as the one who hinted at the Mi 11 Ultra.
A dual-cell battery in context means that the Mi 11 Pro battery will be split into two to improve the efficiency of the battery. This is the type of structure that OnePlus, Oppo, and Realme have recently adopted for their smartphones. This would also mean that the phone will get faster-charging capabilities, which in the Mi 11 Pro’s case could go up to 120W (wired charging) and 80W (wireless charging).
Other specifications could include the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, a 108-megapixel primary sensor at the back, a 32-megapixel front camera, a 6.81-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and more features.
Apart from this, Xiaomi is also expected to launch the Mi 11 Lite, which will be a toned-down variant of the Mi 11.
However, we don’t know when exactly Xiaomi plans to make the Mi 11 Pro, the Mi 11 Ultra, and the Mi 11 Lite official. There are chances the phones could launch by the end of this month, which will the Chinese New Year.
In related news, the company is all set to launch the Mi 11 for the global markets via an online event scheduled for February 8. MIUI 12.5 will also be unveiled alongside.
