The Xiaomi Mi 11 series, which is expected to be the successor to the Mi 10 family and includes the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro, is projected to debut in January. It precedes the Mi 10 series launched in February. A tipster on Weibo has indicated the launch plan for the Mi 11 smartphone. Xiaomi is likely to make a formal announcement for the Mi 11 series at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2020 starting on Tuesday 1 December. The new smartphone is expected to come with the next generation premium Snapdragon SoC.
The tipster claimed that Xiaomi had sent the Mi 11 series for network certification. This indicates that new flagship phones by the Chinese company may be launched sometime in January.
Xiaomi unveiled the Mi 10 series, which featured the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro at an event in China in February, but the smartphone received an official announcement at last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit. The company may follow a similar pattern this year for the Mi 11 series, although the launch of the Mi 11 series may take place in January instead of February.
Although a list of reports so far suggested that the new Mi series will go by the Mi 11 moniker, Xiaomi has not yet made any official confirmation on that part. There is also speculation on the web that the new series may come in the form of Mi 20 and not Mi 11.
The new Mi series is expected to come with a new Snapdragon SoC called the Snapdragon 875 SoC till now. The Mi 11 in the series is projected to come with a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. On the other hand, the Mi 11 Pro is tipped to come with a QHD + display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Display details also appeared last week in a recent MIUI 12 beta release.
