Snapdragon 888, 2K, 120Hz, largest camera sensor, 5000mAh, ceramic body and Harman Kardon sound. Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra marks the title of the best flagship of the year

Published

Tomorrow Xiaomi will officially present its flagships Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra, but confirmation of the main characteristics of these models has already appeared on the web. And judging by them, the devices received everything that a modern flagship should have. And even more.

In general – a single-chip Snapdragon 888 platform, 2K screens with a frequency of 120 Hz, 5000 mAh batteries, Harman Kardon stereo speakers and … IP68 protection. For Xiaomi, the presence of the latter is not yet typical (even for flagships), so the transition to the production of fully protected smartphones can only be welcomed. The presence of IP68 protection is confirmed by the official teaser.

And now – about the differences. Dual (wired and wireless) charging appears only in the description of the Mi 11 Pro – this suggests that the Mi 11 Ultra can support even more powerful charging. For example, with a power of 120 W like the Black Shark 4. And the description of the Mi 11 Ultra is distinguished by the mention of a ceramic case. Let us also recall that yesterday Xiaomi revealed details about the unique cooling system, the day before yesterday an innovative battery was confirmed, and a little earlier – the presence of a large Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor in an optical format 1 / 1.12 inches in the smartphone.

At first glance, it may seem that the Mi 11 Pro / Ultra has a lot in common with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, but in reality, the new Xiaomi products will turn out to be better – with faster charging, better camera and sound. But in terms of screens, there is clearly a parity: the Mi 11 Pro and Ultra use Samsung’s E4 AMOLED panels – they are also used in many other flagships of this year, including the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Firstly, the watch scored 6 points on a 10-point scale of maintainability and generally positive reviews for its modular design, easy access to the screen and battery. Experts also praised Apple for keeping the Apple Watch Series 7 compatible with previous generations of bands, right up to the very first original Apple Watch.

As mentioned several times, the main difference between this device and the Series 6 is the enlarged display. Disassembling iFixit revealed that the watch uses an OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen (on-cell touch), this technology debuted in the iPhone 13.

According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.

IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.

When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”

The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
