Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Specifications
The Mi 11 Ultra launched alongside the Mi 11 Pro in China on March 29. It comes with a 6.81-inch Quad HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz screen refresh rate and a 480Hz touch sampling rate. The panel has a resolution of 3200 x 1440p and has a peak brightness of 1550nits. Moreover, it has Dolby Vision, HDR10+ certification, and is protected by the Gorilla Glass Victus.
Under the hood, the Mi 11 Ultra packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G SoC coupled with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The company has also integrated a new phase-change cooling system to battle the thermal issues.
Coming to the cameras, the Mi 11 Ultra features a 20MP selfie snapper at the front. At the back, there is a triple-camera setup which includes the recently announced 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor as the primary lens. The humongous camera module at the back also houses a 48MP Sony IMX586 ultra-wide lens with a 128-degree FOV and a 48MP periscope lens that can offer up to 120x digital zoom.
Now, the most intriguing aspect of the device is its tiny secondary display right beside the camera lenses. It acts as a viewfinder when the user takes selfies with the back cameras. Moreover, it can be used as an always-on-display, and users can also receive or decline calls, see the battery charging info, and other details.
The Mi 11 Ultra also packs a 5,000mAh battery with support for 67W wired fast charging and 67W wireless fast-charging. Further, it is the first Xiaomi device to come with an IP68 rating for protection against water and dust.
