Xiaomi has launched its new products in India today. The Chinese giant unveiled Mi 11X, Mi 11X Pro, and the Mi 11 Ultra along with a Mi QLED TV with a 75-inch display during the Mi Mega Launch Event. The smartphone series was announced in China last month as a premium flagship along with the Mi Band 6. The Mi 11 Ultra stands apart from all because of its small secondary screen at the rear camera module and other extensive features. Let’s take this new smartphone into detail.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra
Display: The much-awaited dual-display smartphone finally made its debut in India. The front features a 6.81-inch E4 AMOLED display protected with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. Its peak of brightness is claimed to be the highest than any other smartphone: 900 nits maximum sustained brightness and 1,700 maximum peak brightness.
The panel handles a QHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, 480Hz touch-sensing rate, 1 billion colors, 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, and support for HDR 10+ with Dolby Vision. The phone also equips cutting-edge technologies for display.
The Mi 11 Ultra will be available in both glass and ceramic builds with triple cameras on the back alongside a mini rear display. The smartphone weighs 234gm and measures 8.38mm in thickness. Also, it comes with dust and water technology at up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes with an IP68 rating.
The mini rear display alongside the camera flaunts a 1.1-inch AMOLED panel with 126 x 294 pixels resolution. This display supports the always-on feature and shows notifications. Moreover, it can even be used for clicking selfies while using the rear camera. According to Xiaomi, it is the same unit that is used in the Xiaomi Mi Band 5.
Processor and Storage: Under the hood, the Mi 11 Ultra powers the current most powerful hardware, Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 based on an octa-core processor and Adreno 650 GPU. It runs the latest stable OS channel, Android 11 with MIUI 12 skin on top paired with 12GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Camera: The shooting department serves as a cherry on the cake. The rear side of Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Ultra holds a triple rear camera module. There’s a 50MP primary sensor with OIS, a 48MP ultrawide camera with 128-degree field-of-view, and a 48MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom and OIS support.
Talking about camera features, the primary lens is claimed to be the biggest sensor on a phone to date. Furthermore, this provides support for technologies such as Dual Pixel Pro for improved autofocus.
Interestingly, The Mi Ultra is among the very few phones to offer three cameras with a resolution of 48MP or above. Also, the rear snappers will be able to record in 8K at 24fps and 4K UHD at up to 60FPS. On the other side, there is a 20MP shooter housed in a cutout notch.
Battery: With all other aspects outstanding, the battery is no exception. Xiaomi has packed Mi 11 Ultra with a 5,000 mAh battery supporting 67W of wired and wireless charging. However, there’s only a 55W charger inside the box.
Also, there is a 10W wired reverse charging and 5W wireless reverse charging which will be useful when you want to charge peripherals like TWS earphones. Here as well, the company claims that the 67W charging can fill the battery from zero to 100 percent in just 36 minutes.
Connectivity: Xiaomi offers a plethora of connectivity options to the smartphone. It includes a dual SIM card with 5G support for both, dual-band Wi-Fi 6/6e, Bluetooth v5.2, dual-band GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port.
The Mi 11 Ultra also features an in-display fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, IR blaster, X-axis Linear Haptics, and in-display heart rate monitoring. The company is using stereo speakers optimized by Harman Kardon on the device.
