The Xiaomi Mi 11x is expected to feature a triple rear camera, which may be headlined by a new, 48MP image sensor as the primary module. The other two units could feature telephoto and ultra-wide units, with one of the two also potentially doubling up to offer macro photography.

120Hz AMOLED Display
Both the Mi 11x and 11x Pro are slated to be the same in this aspect, and speculations have suggested a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED panel at hand with 120Hz refresh rate on both. This will be in line with what other phones in this category are already offering.
