Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Pro could launch in 2021 after all

Xiaomi recently unveiled the Mi 11 in China, its latest smartphone in the flagship Mi series. However, unlike last year, the phone was the only launch in the series and an expected variant of the Mi 11 Pro was nowhere to be found. Shortly after launch, speculation about the Mi 11 Pro launching in 2021 started to surface on the web, and we finally have our first concrete proof of the Mi 11 Pro’s existence.

A recent teardown of XDA’s latest MIUI 12 Gallery app revealed the mention of the Mi 11 Pro. Additionally, the app code also suggests that the Mi 11 Pro will feature a curved display. While no further specs have been revealed yet, we have at least confirmation that the Mi 11 Pro is on its way to 2021. While waiting for the Pro variant, here’s a recap of the standard Mi 11.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Specifications

The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a 6.81-inch 3200 × 1440 AMOLED panel with support for 120Hz refresh rate and 480Hz touch sampling rate. The phone is powered by the SoC Snapdragon 888 and will be available in multiple storage configurations. The entire unit will be powered by a 4600mAh battery with support for 55W wired fast charge, 50W wireless fast charge, and 10W reverse charge.

The Mi 11 will also feature stereo speakers with sound tuned by Harman Kardon. There is also a built-in fingerprint sensor with a built-in heart rate sensor. The phone also supports NFC, Wi-Fi 6E, and can connect to two Bluetooth headsets together. We expect the Pro model to pick up on these features.

The Mi 11 has a triple camera setup on the back and a single hole-punch camera on the front. The rear configuration includes a 108-megapixel main camera sensor with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). There’s also a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera sensor and a 5-megapixel macro sensor. On the front is a 20-megapixel selfie camera. The upcoming Mi 11 Pro could feature a more powerful camera setup, however. We should see more details on the surface of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro closer to a launch date.
