Disregarding its battle with the US government, Xiaomi has forged ahead to launch it Mi 11 flagship globally.
The latest smartphone comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, 108MP triple rear camera, cinematic audio, and 50W wireless charging.
Like most smartphone launches, camera capabilities have become a key selling point. Xiaomi’s offering claims to be the “ultimate pocket-sized movie studio” that turns “any novice photo and video enthusiast into a film director with its triple rear camera setup”.
With a 108MP wide-angle camera sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide angle camera and 5MP telemacro lens at the back and a 20MP punch-hole camera in front, it certainly has the credentials on paper to match its claims.
Improved night mode plus six one-click AI cinema features will take photography and videography up another level for previous generation users.
With prices starting from €749 (S$1,203), it represents a hefty investment. Xiaomi will be competing at a higher price point, where the battle with the other leading players is more intense.
The Mi 11 will be available globally soon. Local pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.
