Undoubtedly Xiaomi has bet big with its latest phone. And the intention is clear: to make a place among the three high-end, that is to say Samsung, Huawei, and Apple.
And it wants to do it with the new Mi 11 Ultra. Without a doubt it is one We are talking about one of the most ambitious devices that the Chinese giant has launched on the market. Not in recent years, but in its history. For many reasons.
Inside it has the most advanced Qualcomm microchip, the Snapdragon 888, memory of up to 12 GB and a storage capacity of 512 GB. To this it adds a 5,000 mAh battery. Interesting detail: the 67W fast charge, capable of a full charge in just over 35 minutes, can also be wireless. The result? Brain and energy compete in the big leagues.
When it comes to cameras, it also hits the table. Three rear cameras, one of 50 MP (with the Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor) and two of 48 MP: one is a 128º ultra wide angle and the other a zoom with a 5X optical, a 10x hybrid and a 120x digital one, which basically allows us to zoom in 120 times to the photographed object. The whole system has image stabilization, and a very good one.
The front camera, meanwhile, is 20 MP. The interesting thing about the entire photographic aspect is that Xiaomi has taken great care in terms of software to give a very careful treatment of light and zoom, achieving a quality that, once again, takes it to the podium.
As far as the screen is concerned, it comes with surprises, since we should speak in the plural. The main one is 6.81-inch AMOLED. Excellent quality, very good resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Nothing out of the ordinary for a high-end.
It is the other screen that is interesting, because it is different. It is located in the rear camera module and although it is true that it is small (1’1 inches) it has interesting functions. Thanks to it we can see the time, the percentage of available battery, messages and even answer calls.
As if that were not enough, it acts as a preview to the images and can set up to be more personal (double tap to activate it, background, color, etc.).
Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Ultra will be a great competitor, unexpected without a doubt, but very relevant in the highest sector of the table. It will be available from May 17.
