Xiaomi released the Mi 11 Ultra on the 2nd of April 2021, just three days after announcing the phone on the 29th of March 2021. The device is powered by Qualcomm SM8350 Snapdragon 888 5G processor, which is based on the 5 nm technology. Snapdragon 888 is currently one of the fastest processors in 2021. The phone has an octa-core processor and its amazing AnTuTu benchmark score is 802174. The device runs Android 11 out-of-the-box and the user interface will be MIUI 12.5. The Adreno 660 will be majorly responsible for your gaming experience on this device.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra supports dual nano-SIMs and connectivity from 2G to 5G. The device measures 6.47 inches in height, 2.94 inches in width, and 0.33 inches in thickness while also weighing 234 grams. The smartphone has an aluminum frame and a ceramic back. The glass front is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, which is the toughest gorilla glass yet. The gadget also has an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. As far as protection and durability are considered, the device is quite amazing, to say the least.
What makes this phone stand out from its competition is that it has a WQHD+ 6.81 inches AMOLED DotDisplay with Dolby Vision. The screen resolution is 1440 x 3200 pixels, while the screen-to-body ratio, aspect ratio, and PPI density are 91.4%, 20:9, and 515 respectively. It’s safe to say that watching videos on this phone will be a delight. The device comes in three configurations, 8 GB RAM with 256 GB internal storage, 12 GB RAM with 256 GB internal storage, and 12 GB RAM with 512 GB internal storage. The device lacks an SD card slot, but it shouldn’t be a problem since it either comes with 256 GB or 512 GB of internal storage. The RAM type is LPDDR5 and the storage type is UFS 3.1.
For color, you can choose from Ceramic White and Ceramic Black. The pricing starts from $1099. On the rear, the phone has a 50 MP wide-angle camera, a 48 MP camera having a periscope telephoto lens, and a 48 MP ultrawide camera. With the rear camera set-up, you can record not just 1080p, but also 4K and 8K videos. A phone that allows you to record 8K videos is quite rare to see, and this phone certainly falls on that list. The rear camera and video features include Dual-LED flash, HDR, panorama, and gyro-EIS. On the front, the phone has a 20 MP wide-angle camera for your selfie and video calls. Unlike the back camera set-up, the front camera only allows you to record videos at 720p and 1080p. The front camera and video features include gyro-EIS, HDR, and panorama.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra lacks 3.5 mm headphone jack, but more than makes for it by having Hi-Resolution & Hi-Resolution wireless audio tuned by Harman Kardon. The device has dual-band Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, Bluetooth 5.2, and GPS. When it comes to sensors, the device has a Fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and color spectrum. Coming to battery and charging, the device comes with a non-removable 5000 mAh lithium-polymer battery. The device supports 67W fast charging and 67W wireless charging. If the advertisements are to be believed, you can completely charge your device within 40 minutes. Besides, the device has USB Type-C 2.0, Quick Charge 4+, and Power Delivery 3.0.
