Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra specs and features
--The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra looks starkly different from the devices we have seen in quite some time. This primarily due to the massive rear camera module that houses the triple camera setup and a secondary display.
--Xiaomi has used a superior display tech from Samsung dubbed as E4. This display is better with brightness, contrast levels while consuming less battery than other AMOLED displays in comparison. As far as display specs are concerned, the Mi 11 Ultra features a 6.81-inch WQHD+ AMOLED panel with support for a 120Hz refresh rate. The front display also supports HDR 10+, Dolby Vision and can get as bright as 1700 nits. Whereas the rear features a 1.1-inch AMOLED display which is the same as the one used on the Mi Band 5.
--In terms of protection, the display on the Mi 11 Ultra is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, plus there's IP68 dust and water resistance.
--Moving forward, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is powered by Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC. It is an octa-core chipset clocked at 2.8GHz and coupled with Adreno 660 GPU. The chipset is based on a 5nm manufacturing process and supports all 5G and WiFi 6 bands.
--It is further coupled with 8GB/12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB/512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Sadly, there's no room for any further storage expansion.
--Talking about the major highlight of the Mi 11 Ultra, which is its camera setup. A 50-megapixel Samsung GN2 sensor tops this setup with a size of 1.12 inch. Xiaomi claims this to be the biggest camera sensor used on a smartphone. Other sensors include a 48-megapixel periscope lens with 120X digital zoom and 5X optical zoom capability and another 48-megapixel ultrawide shooter with a 128-degree field of view.
