- New details of Xiaomi’s rumored Mi 11T Pro have leaked.
- The phone will reportedly bring quick charging speeds, pack the Snapdragon 888 SoC, and switch out its predecessor’s LCD for an OLED panel.
- Xiaomi has since confirmed the charging speed for the 11T Pro.
Update: September 6, 2021 (7:09 AM ET): Xiaomi has taken to Twitter to confirm a September 15 event for the 11T series, but that’s not the only detail the firm revealed about the upcoming device family.
The Chinese manufacturer also used the opportunity to reveal that the 11T Pro will indeed offer 120W charging support. This isn’t the first commercial Xiaomi phone to offer 120W charging, as last year’s Mi 10 Ultra offered this before. But that release didn’t make its way out of China though.
Original article: August 20, 2021 (3:43 AM ET): Xiaomi is reportedly reading its new line of affordable upper-range smartphones in the form of the Mi 11T series. We’ve already heard a bit about the base model in the range, but new info concerning the Mi 11T Pro has now leaked.
According to YouTube channel The Pixel (h/t XDA-Developers), the series’ range-topping model could sport the Snapdragon 888 SoC, a 5,000mAh battery with 120W charging support, and a 120Hz OLED display. That would be a marked step up over the Mi 10T Pro, which arrived with 33W charging and a 144Hz LCD.
Details of pricing also surfaced, placing the Mi 11T Pro between 13 and 15 million Vietnamese dong (~$570-$657). The Mi 1oT Pro didn’t land in the US, but it arrived in Europe at €449 (~$544). Considering the potential improvements, a slightly inflated price doesn’t seem too bad of a trade-off, but we recommending using currency conversions as a guide rather than gospel. Nevertheless, the Mi 11T Pro could likely be one of the cheaper Snapdragon 888 phones available alongside the Realme GT.
If that still seems a little pricey, Xiaomi is reportedly readying a MediaTek-powered Mi 11T, which should undercut its premium sibling. It’s also set to pack a 120Hz OLED but includes a 64MP primary camera within a triple array.
Xiaomi has not confirmed the launch date for the Mi 11T series, but rumors and the series’ launch history point to a late September debut.
