The Xiaomi Mi 11T may already be in works, according to a post by @Xiaomiui on Twitter. The Xiaomi enthusiast handle typically tracks happenings and updates within the Xiaomi ecosystem, and in its recent post, has written about updates around the Mi 11T smartphone. The latter is seemingly codenamed Amber, and as per the post, is designed for global markets including India. Along with this apparent confirmation of the Mi 11T’s India launch, the post has also detailed a few key specifications of the upcoming device.
According to the post, the Xiaomi Mi 11T will feature a 20:9 display with 120Hz aspect ratio. Other reports on the internet have further stated that the Mi 11T display will feature an OLED panel, and therefore present an upgrade over the 144Hz LCD display that was in the Mi 10T. The device is also tipped to be powered by a MediaTek processor. While the post does not clarify which chipset may be present in the phone, reports have tipped the Mi 11T to rival the recently launched OnePlus Nord 2. As a result, speculations suggest that the chipset in the upcoming Xiaomi phone may be the MediaTek Dimensity 1200.
Other tipped specifications of the phone point at a triple rear camera setup, featuring a 64MP primary camera unit with an OmniVision OV64B sensor, an ultra-wide unit with Sony IMX355 8MP image sensor, and a telephoto unit with 3x optical zoom, which would double up as a macro camera as well. Further specifications, however, remain under wraps for now, suggesting that while a possible launch of the Mi 11T may be on the cards, it isn’t exactly imminent.
The Mi 10T series, which is the direct successor of the purported Mi 11T, was introduced in October 2020, and Xiaomi may follow the same timeline this year as well. The devices will join more mid-premium range devices under the ‘Mi’ moniker launched recently, such as the Mi 11X series. It is possible that the Mi 11T may sit below the Mi 11X series in terms of its pricing, although such details will only become apparent closer to the launch dates.
