Sorry guys: at this point in time, the chances of Xiaomi Mi Note 11 are very low.
When the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 launched in late 2019, it was at the top of our list of best smartphones, but since then we haven’t heard a glimpse from the sporadically dusty Note line of Xiaomi Mi phones.
So we have lost hope that a Mi Note 11 is coming out, especially because with the Xiaomi 12, it is clear that the company has moved on from its 11th generation (and also the Mi in its name).
That doesn’t mean we’ll never see a new Xiaomi Note phone, as the company doesn’t release them every year, and the Note 10 was a big surprise. So maybe we’ll see a Note 12 or 13, but that’s just speculation.
We used to use this Xiaomi Mi Note 11 page to list the rumors and speculations we’ve heard about the device – some details were leaked in 2020 and 2021 – but, since the phone will almost certainly not appear at this point , we won’t add anything else.
So for a historical look at the leaks, rumors and our wish-list on the Xiaomi Mi Note 11, scroll down. But if you want to see more contemporary mobiles from the brand, check out our ranking of the best Xiaomi phones.
cut to the chase:
- What is this? Expected next mid-range smartphone from Xiaomi
- When is it out? no info
- How much will it cost? Probably around £459 / AU$888 (about $590)
Xiaomi Mi Note 11 release date and price
Xiaomi Mi Note 10 was launched in November 2019 – 2020 and 2021 came and went without Mi Note 11. There’s no indication of when it will come, or even if it will happen at all.
As for the price, the Mi Note 10 costs £459 / AU$888 (about $590) for its most affordable variant, so it’s possible that the Mi Note 11 will cost that much or maybe a little more.
Having said that, the Xiaomi Mi 10 was significantly more expensive than the Mi 9. It is possible that the company will repeat this leap in the Mi Note lineup, but we hope that the low price was not the driving force of the Mi Note 10.
Xiaomi Mi Note 11 Leaks and Rumors
We have heard a big rumor about the Xiaomi Mi CC11, which will probably be revealed outside China as the Mi Note 11. Apparently it will have a 90Hz screen, 64MP main camera, 67W charging and a Snapdragon 778 or 780 chipset.
Apart from this, there is said to be a Pro model with Snapdragon 870 chipset and 5x zoom periscope sensor.
Apart from this, we have not heard a single rumor or leak about Xiaomi Mi Note 11 yet. Although we have heard of several new Xiaomi technology that was not tied to a designated smartphone, so it could debut in the Mi Note 11 – although this is just speculation.
For example, Xiaomi has patented a front-facing snapper, an under-display camera for tech that will allow a phone to have an all-screen front without any moving parts or novelty tricks to ensure That’s still a front-facing camera. The gimmick is, for example, this other Xiaomi patent that shows a phone that folds in half to take selfies.
We would expect a mid-range chipset in the Xiaomi Mi Note 11, and the company is said to be working on a smartphone with MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000 Plus processor. This will make the phone 5G-compatible, and will also allow for a 144Hz refresh rate display. Having said that, Xiaomi has considered using Samsung’s Exynos chipset in its phones as well.
In terms of camera capabilities, it looks like Xiaomi is working on a phone with a 108MP camera and 120x digital zoom, possibly via a different telephoto lens, which will blow all the competitors out of the water in terms of numbers.
We hear that Xiaomi is working on a new cheap phone with a 108MP main sensor, which could be a Redmi phone (probably Redmi Note 10) but could also be the Mi Note 11.
Since this super-powerful camera phone is called the Mi CC Phone, it could also be the Mi Note 11 (as the Mi Note 10 was known as Mi CC 9 Pro in China).
Lastly, we hear that Xiaomi is working on a 120W charger that will power a phone in minutes. The Xiaomi Mi Note 11 might not be the phone to debut, as the phone is set to be a mid-ranger and it’s definitely a premium feature, but the Mi Note 10 was the first Xiaomi phone with a 108MP camera, so it’s possible Is.
Xiaomi Mi Note 11: what we want to see
These are all the features and specs we wish the Xiaomi Mi Note 11 came with.
1. A Better ‘Main’ Telephoto Camera
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 had five rear cameras, but only three were really impressive or useful. One of the bad piles was the 8MP telephoto snapper. Theoretically it was useful with 5x optical zoom, but due to the low-res sensor, pictures looked a bit fuzzy, and you could get better pictures by taking a 108MP snap and cropping it manually.
We would like to see the Mi Note 11 pack a better sensor with its telephoto or periscope lens for zoomed shots, so there was a reason to close the distance with the camera.
2. Long lasting battery
Xiaomi Mi phones generally have good battery life, but we are rarely as impressed with how long they last as we would handsets from another Xiaomi brand, Redmi. Mi phones will last a day, well, but you’ll have to work hard to get them to last you another day – or even a full day if you’re pushing the camera to its limits.
We wish the Xiaomi Mi Note 11 would last longer without a charge, either with a better battery or – possibly with a better alternative – with some software optimizations that mean it drains power at a slower rate. Is.
3. A Better Chipset
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 didn’t have a top-end processor – instead, it used the mid-range Snapdragon 730. It was a decision that we initially found quite curious, but we didn’t notice the lack of processing after using the phone. Power too much.
The Mi Note 11 needs a better processor, though in one important respect – the 730 had a lot of trouble taking and processing 108MP photos, and if the new phone is ready to keep or improve on this snapper, it should be able to take pictures. Needs to be handled better.
Qualcomm (which makes Snapdragon chipsets) has since launched the 765G, which is a great processor for gaming and long battery life, and is also 5G-capable, so that would be an obvious choice, but there are others that work. do.
4. a low price
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 had impressive specs, but it didn’t even have a handset with similar features – a lower price tag.
Xiaomi is known for putting out affordable phones, and the Mi Note 10 was certainly one, but the later-launched Mi 10 series was arguably not, as the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro cost twice as much as the Mi Note 10. Apparently Xiaomi realized that it can offer expensive phones as well.
We want the Mi Note 11 to be affordable but not overpriced like the Mi 10, as this will keep it extremely competitive against a lot of rivals and give more people a chance to see what is likely to be an impressive phone. .
5. Fast Charging Capability
Xiaomi phones generally have fast charging speeds, perhaps some of the best available, but every year the top available charging technology gets faster and faster. We want to see Xiaomi Mi Note 11 ahead of the curve.
While the Mi Note 10 had 30W charging, which is already faster than a lot of the competition, could potentially rival the Xiaomi Note 11 with up to 50W or 65W, really outpacing its rivals. Xiaomi has demonstrated 100W fast charging technology before, so it’s not so unreasonable either.
