According to earlier rumors, Xiaomi also wants to introduce an unusual new design with a large camera module on the back of the Mi11 in addition to the 5G-capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. A new 50-megapixel sensor is supposedly installed for the main camera, while a zoom camera with a 12-megapixel sensor is also installed.
In addition, there has also been talking of a QHD + display with 120 Hertz support and a 5000mAh battery with a 55-watt fast charging function. In addition to the normal Xiaomi Mi 11, a Lite and at least one Pro model are also planned.
