Star performance with flagship Qualcomm® Snapdragon 888 

Mi 11i is equipped with the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon 888 mobile platform. This flagship chipset boasts advanced 5nm process technology that allows higher performance while consuming less energy and providing a super fast and reliable user experience.

LPDDR5 storage and UFS 3.1 flash memory are also on board, completing Mi 11i’s flagship performance package. 

Mi 11i supports the latest generation Wi-Fi 6. The phone’s Wi-Fi capabilities have been boosted even further, increasing the bandwidth to 160MHz while 4096-QAM encoding provides for higher information density, drastically increasing peak speeds to a maximum of 2.89Gbps1. Mi 11i can maintain high-speed, low latency, and stable Wi-Fi connection, even in complex network environments with multiple devices connected. 

Star visuals and immersive clear audio with 120Hz refresh rate and Dolby Atmos

Contrary to the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11i features a flat-screen display while its premium glass body, 7.8mm thickness and redesigned side-mounted fingerprint scanner offer a more comfortable grip and feel for the user. With a 6.67” tiny hole-punch display Mi 11i offers an uninterrupted edge-to-edge viewing experience. The brand-new Samsung E4 AMOLED display can reach a peak brightness of 1300nits while consuming little power. The display delivers a stunning array of vivid colors with DCI-P3 color gamut and HDR10+ support. Thanks to meticulous calibration, the device achieves color accuracy of JNCD≈0.36 and ΔE≈0.35 for stunning color representation. The resulting effect is an outstanding display with a A+ rating in tests carried out by the prestigious display testing organization, DisplayMate.

With a 120Hz refresh rate, Mi 11i delivers an ultra-smooth and satisfying viewing experience for everything from everyday swiping to playing high frame rate games and videos. A maximum 360Hz touch sampling rate ensures an extremely responsive touchscreen that enables excellent control in fast-paced games. 

Thanks to light sensors on the front and back of the body, Mi 11i supports 360° light sensing technology. The sensors serve to effectively improve the accuracy of automatic brightness, delivering 8192 levels of brightness for a smoother and much more precise transition. Mi 11i also features a dedicated in-built ambient light sensor to adjust the color temperature based on the lighting levels of the external environment.

With Dolby Atmos® and dual speakers, Mi 11i creates a truly immersive audio experience. Dolby Atmos® lends an incredible audio quality with unparalleled detail and depth both for headphone and speaker audio. This professionally tuned sound will take users on an epic lifelike journey as they enjoy their favorite movies, TV shows, and mobile games.

Star photography with 108MP triple camera and Audio Zoom

Mi 11i is equipped with pro-level photography capabilities powered by a 108MP HD triple rear camera array. This array is composed of a 108MP HD main camera, an 119° ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 50mm equivalent focal length telemacro camera.

The 108MP main camera offers outstanding low-light photography thanks to 9-in-1 2.1μm Super Pixel support. Additionally, Dual Native ISO technology enables it to capture an excellent level of detail in dark areas of an image – even when taken in bright lighting conditions – while avoiding overexposure of brightly lit areas. Accompanying the main camera is the 119° ultra-wide-angle camera that has been perfectly adapted to take images of landscapes, buildings, and groups of people. Finally, the 5MP telemacro camera boasts a 50mm equivalent focal length, twice that of the standard macro lenses currently on the market, which enables higher magnification from the same distance and a clearer focus on details. 

Mi 11i has been designed with a host of features to enhance filming quality. First, unlike the standard dual-microphone design of most smartphones, Mi 11i adopts a triple microphone setup, enabling Audio Zoom. Capture clear audio of far-away scenes while simply zooming in on a subject with the camera. The device can capture videos in 8K and maintains a high performance at night with the Ultra Night Video mode. A host of additional AI and video editing features allows users to quickly and easily enhance the picture quality and complete videos, all without having to purchase expensive editing software.

Elegant design without compromises on battery life and versatility

At just 7.8mm in width, Mi 11i feels super lightweight and comfortable in the hand, achieving a sleek and stylish design without compromising on battery life. Powered by a 4,520mAh (type) large capacity battery, the smartphone cruises through a full day of use without needing to be recharged. When it does need a boost, its 33W fast charging technology allows it to power up from low battery to 100% in just 52 minutes2.

Mi 11i rounds out its flagship experience with an X-linear motor for clean, powerful, and highly responsive haptics, along with an IR blaster and NFC support for contactless payment2
