The Mi 11 Lite is a scaled-down version of the vanilla Mi 11, sporting a flat AMOLED display and the same back panel design as its vanilla sibling. It is reported to be the first phone to rock a Snapdragon 775G processor–which is a successor to the well-regarded Snapdragon 765G. As for the triple rear camera setup, we expect to see a 64-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 5-megapixel macro camera. While the Mi 11 Lite is expected to be a 5G phone, there are also rumors of a 4G variant tagging along as well.
As for the Mi 11 Ultra, the top-tier Mi 11 variant will be debuting Samsung’s 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN2 sensor, which is touted as the biggest smartphone camera sensor to date at 1/1.12”. Accompanying that huge main camera is a 48-megapixel periscope module that is capable of up to 120x digital zoom and a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. Hence, the insanely huge camera bump.
Both the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra will share the same design–secondary display at the back included–and have similar specs that include a Snapdragon 888 processor and a 6.81-inch Quad HD+ 120hz AMOLED panel. The main difference will be with charging speeds: the Mi 11 Ultra will flex a 120w wired charging speed, while the Mi 11 Pro will settle for a still-fast 66w charging speeds.
Aside from the three Mi 11 variants, the March 29 event will also unveil other Xiaomi products like the Mi Band 6. Compared to its predecessor, rumored new features on the Mi Band 6 include a built-in GPS and Blood Oxygen monitoring, along with monitoring for up to 30 activity modes and support for Amazon Alexa (Xiao AI for the China version).
