Days ahead of the launch of the Mi 11 series, Xiaomi appears to be taking matters into its hands. The Mi 11 phones are set for an official launch on December 28, but the company has already revealed its official Geekbench results.
As per the information shared by the company, the Mi 11 clocks a single-core score of 1,135 while the multi-core score is 3,818. As per the information revealed by the company, the Mi 11 with the Snapdragon 888 will be faster than phones with Kirin 9000 and the Snapdragon 865. Although impressive, these scores do not come as a surprise as Qualcomm itself revealed benchmark scores of the Snapdragon 888 SoC earlier this month.
Earlier, the pricing of the Mi 11 had also leaked online. Courtesy of a fresh leak from China, the Mi 11 has been tipped to be made available for purchase at a starting price of CNY4,500 or $687/565 for the 8/128GB option. While there's no word on the Indian pricing, this should translate to around Rs 50,000.
The leak also shows that the 8/256 GB option of the Xiaomi Mi 11 will be CNY4,800 ( approx Rs 55,000, while the 12/256 GB variant will be priced at CNY5,200 (approx Rs 60,000). It is interesting to note that the Mi 11 appears to be a far more premium proposition as compared to the Mi 10 which was launched at a much more affordable price earlier this year.
Apart from this, other leaks in the past have given us a fair idea of what we can expect from it. Reports have suggested in the past that the Mi 11 will be among the first devices in the world to make use of the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform. The information was revealed by the company's CEO Lei Jun, who confirmed that the Mi 11 will feature the chipset at launch. He made the announcement via a special message during Qualcomm's first Keynote at the Snapdragon Tech Summit.
Further, leaks suggest the Mi 11 will come with a triple camera set-up with a primary 108-megapixel lens. The secondary lens in the camera setup will be an ultrawide lens. Completing the set-up here could be a third lens on the Mi 11 which will support up to 30x zoom.
