Xiaomi debuted the Mi 11 Ultra last night (Malaysian time) with the phone practically good in almost everything.
Like the Mi 11 Pro, the Ultra was unveiled at Xiaomi’s 2021 New Product Launch alongside other interesting phones and peripherals.
There’s really not much separating both the Ultra and the Mi 11 Pro.
Specification highlights of the Mi 11 Ultra
However, if you need to highlight something different between the two Xiaomi phones, it would be the camera system.
Not only is the camera bump hard to miss as it covers a third of the phone, the sensors and capabilities the Ultra does pack an extra 48 MP ultrawide camera, as opposed to the 13 MP ultrawide camera in the Mi 11 Pro.
- Display: 6.81 inches, AMOLED, 1B colors, 120Hz
- Processor: Qualcom Snapdragon 888
- Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass Victus
- Audio: Dual stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon
- Rear camera: 50 MP (wide) + 48 MP (periscope) + 48 MP (ultrawide)
- Front camera: 20 MP (wide)
- Battery: 5,000 mAh battery
The massive Samsung GN2 sensor is also used in the Mi 11 Ultra, and that does mean you get to capture better and clearer images.
The battery is also a highlight but since it was already mentioned when Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 Pro, I won’t talk more about it here.
Price and availability
The Ultra will be available globally.
It will be available in three variants, and it will be priced as follows:
- 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM : CNY 6,000 ($915)
- 12GB RAM + 256GB ROM : CNY 6,500 ($989)
- 12GB RAM + 512GB ROM : CNY 7,000 ($1,830)
Sales will begin in China on April 2, but there’s no mention of the phone coming to the Malaysian market just yet.
There will be three colours, Black and White and a Marble Ceramic special edition.
Xiaomi is also offering two different packaging options at the same price for buyers, one with a bundled 67W charger and cable, and another without a charger and cable in the box.
Either way, you can always try your luck to find the phone in local online stores.
