Qualcomm has just unveiled the Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform for flagship phones coming next year. And just like last year, Xiaomi has confirmed today that its Mi 11 series will be one of the premium flagship series that will work with this chipset.
This Mi 11 series will be the successor to the Mi 10 also Mi 10T series, both powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset. Not only Xiaomi’s Mi flagships but also Redmi’s premium offerings (such as Redmi K30 Pro) now also work with top-of-the-line Snapdragon chipsets.
Xiaomi is one of many strategic OEM partners for Qualcomm, along with Lenovo, LG, Motorola, Realme, OnePlus, and others. No other details for the upcoming Mi 11 series were given during the presentation. But we do know a few things thanks to some recent leaks.
Since it will be powered by the new Snapdragon 888 5G chipset, you will see the single-camera and gameplay trailers. It can feature a QHD + display along with MEMC, SDR to HDR tone mapping, and AI enhancement support. It will also be interesting to see if Xiaomi will equip its long-rumored foldable phone (possibly coming under the Mi Mix brand) with the Snapdragon 888 chipset.
As for the rumors, Xiaomi will present the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro next month, that is, at the beginning of January. That’s all a month ahead of the usual February launch schedule for the company’s flagship line. We will share more details on the Mi 11 lineup as they arrive. So stay tuned for more information.
