Xiaomi has unveiled another 8K-capable smartphone, but initially only for the Chinese market. The new flagship model Mi 11 features a trio of cameras whose specifications sound familiar, but it is the first smartphone ever to be equipped with the brand-new Snapdragon 888 processor and includes an AI-based "Night Video" mode that brightens up shots in low light. Various effect modes also seem to be included, e.g. to simulate a "Vertigo" dolly zoom setting, or film look filters that are supposed to have been developed by Digital Domain.
The Mi 11's optically stabilized main camera features a 1/1.33" sensor with 108MP resolution, whose 0.8μm pixel size can be "boosted" to 1.6μm by 4-in-1 merging. The max aperture is f/1.85. Additionally, a 13MP wide-angle camera is on board with a 123° angle of view and an f/2.4 aperture, as well as a 5MP tele/macro camera.
The 6.81-inch AMOLED 120Hz display resolves at 1440x3200 pixels and supports HDR10+ and the DCI-P3 color space. Peak brightness is said to be 1,500 nits with an average of 900 nits, according to the manufacturer. The battery offers a power of 4,600 mA.
When the Mi 11 will be available worldwide and at what price is still unknown.
