- Xiaomi's Mi 11 could be launched in January 2021.
- The Mi 11 is tipped to get a four-sided curved display.
- The phone could be powered by a Snapdragon 875 SoC.
Xiaomi's Mi 11 will be the next flagship from the company and is expected to launch sometime in January next year. While we're still quite some time away from the launch, details about the device have already started to come.
The latest information coming in from Digital Chat Station on Weibo claims that the Xiaomi Mi 11 could sport a four-sided curved display with a punch-hole on the top left corner. If this indeed comes true, it will be a major upgrade on the current-gen Xiaomi flagships such as the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro which come with dual curved displays.
Apart from this, previous reports have suggested that the Mi 11 will come with a Snapdragon 875 SoC making it the first Chinese phone to be powered by this particular chipset. Talking about the Snapdragon 875 SoC, it is likely to comprise of one Cortex-X1 core, three Cortex-A78 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores and is expected to be around 20 percent more power-efficient and 10 per cent more powerful than the Snapdragon 865. In fact, some reports have also claimed that the new Snapdragon Qualcomm chipset would be faster than Apple's A14 Bionic chipset.
As for cameras, the Mi 11 is expected to get powerful lenses that could even eclipse the megapixel count of the camera found on its predecessor.
It is expected the main camera sensor could range from 108-megapixel to 192-megapixels. Other lenses could include a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with upgraded image stabilization features and a tiny 0.8 m pixel size.
Talking about the availability, tipsters have claimed that the Xiaomi Mi 11 could be launched in the company's home country China as early as January next year.
It has been claimed that initially the phone will be exclusive to the Chinese market, and could remain to be so for a few weeks or months, after which it will eventually be launched globally. If the leaked timeline is followed, the Mi 11 would launch very close, and possibly even before Samsung's Galaxy S30 series which is expected to launch in the US in January.
