Xiaomi’s Mi 11 rumored to lose 108MP lens used in predecessors

Xiaomi launched its latest 5G flagship devices, the Mi 10 series, at online events after the cancellation of the Mobile World Congress 2020. The phones shown above are the Chinese version of the devices.


Following Xiaomi’s official announcement of its highly anticipated flagship line, this week’s new rumors are giving us more clues as to what to expect from the company’s next-generation Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro phones.

According to a post on Twitter this week by Digital chat station, Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro will support fast charging of up to 55 watts and will have battery capacities of 2,390 mAh and 2,485 mAh respectively. Because Xiaomi’s 55W fast charge requires the batteries to be split in two to function, the actual battery capacity of those phones is more likely to be 4,780 mAh and 4,790 mAh. According to the insider, both phones should be able to charge from 0 to 100% in 35 minutes.

One key feature that is rumored to change is the main camera. According to the leak, the Mi 11 line will no longer feature the 108-megapixel camera, a highly marketed feature found on previous models like the Mi 10 series, Mi Note 10 and Mi 10T Pro. Instead, a 50 prime lens megapixels it uses pixel binning Technology will make an appearance, according to Digital Chat Station.

This new leak comes after Xiaomi announced the imminent launch of the Mi 11 line earlier this month and revealed that the phones would include Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 888 chip. An unconfirmed leak from Digital Chat Station in November said that the top-end Mi 11 Pro will have a 120Hz screen, as well as a 50-megapixel main camera paired with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens.

Xiaomi’s Mi 11 series will be the successor to the well-received Wed 10 family, which are the company’s most advanced and expensive line of phones.

A Xiaomi spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNET.
