Xiaomi has already made the Mi 11 official in December, and the phone has gone on sale today with great results. But, according to mumblings on Weibo, there’s a Mi 11 Pro coming too, at some point in the near future.
Perhaps surprisingly, the design of the camera island on the back is completely different compared to that seen on the Mi 11. The Mi 11 Pro has four cameras, one of which is of the periscope zoom variety, and the “120x” inscription next to it tells us that Xiaomi doesn’t want this phone to digitally zoom any less than the Mi 10 Ultra.
The rest of the writing reveals that the ultrawide has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 12mm, while the periscope goes to 120mm. One of the other shooters is likely to be the exact same 108 MP sensor as the one in the Mi 11, while the last camera could be a 2x or 3x tele for smoother zooming.
We don’t yet have a picture of the front of the Mi 11 Pro, but rumor has it you should expect to find the exact same screen that the Mi 11 has, with its 6.81″ size, curved sides, 1440×3200 resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate, 480 Hz touch sampling rate, and 1,500-nit peak brightness. Under the hood the Snapdragon 888 should reign supreme, of course.
