Xiaomi is currently holding its largest presentation of all time, and the first device presented today is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro. The novelty is built on a single-chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 platform – like the Mi 11.
Mi 11 Pro received a curved Samsung AMOLED screen of the latest generation E4 – the same one used in Mi 11. The screen resolution is 2K, the frame rate is 120 Hz. The display is protected by tempered Gorilla Glass Victus. The fingerprint scanner is integrated into the display.
After the words that the Mi 11 Pro is endowed with Harman Kardon stereo speakers and is built on SoC Snapdragon 888, the head of the company Lei Jun immediately moved on to the cooling subsystem and the battery.
We have already talked about the cooling subsystem in detail, and it is really quite effective, as evidenced by the next slide of the presentation: after 50 minutes of playing, Mi 11 Pro is several degrees colder than a couple of main competitors, despite the fact that their frame rates are approximately the same.
And then we talked about the rechargeable battery – its capacity is 5000 mAh. Despite this, the Mi 11 Pro turned out to be slightly thicker and heavier than the regular Mi 11. The smartphone supports wired and wireless charging with a power of 67 W – in both cases the battery is fully charged in just 36 minutes.
Especially for the Mi 11 Pro, Xiaomi has introduced a new 80W wireless charging stand. The smartphone can be oriented both vertically and horizontally on it. Together with her, Xiaomi introduced a 120W travel charger and wireless charging in the form of a rug – Apple, according to rumors, has been working on a similar device for several years, but never released it. But Xiaomi was able to. The design of the “mat” has 19 coils (!), It allows you to charge up to three devices at the same time – charging starts automatically. It took Xiaomi several years to create such a wireless charger.
An important point regarding charging. The Mi 11 Pro does not come with a charger, but users can order it for free if needed. Also, Mi 11 Pro buyers are offered a wireless charging stand for $ 30 instead of the standard retail $ 75. Even if charging is not available in all versions of Mi 11 Pro, the protective glass of the screen and a silicone case are provided in the box.
Mi 11 Pro is the first smartphone in the world with a large image sensor Samsung ISOCELL GN2, optical format 1 / 1.12 inches and a resolution of 50 megapixels. It’s five times the size of the iPhone 12 Pro max sensor.
In fact, Xiaomi has been working on it with Samsung for a year and a half. The sensor has large 1.4μm pixels and supports pixel binning up to 2.8μm. The lens of the main camera sensor is also far from the simplest – it consists of 8 elements. Also, the main camera uses an optical stabilization system, supports Full HD video recording at 1920 fps or 8K at 30 fps. Not surprisingly, the Mi 11 Pro is capable of taking very high quality photos, especially in low light conditions.
Also, the Mi 11 Pro camera has a module with an ultra-wide-angle lens with a viewing angle of 123 ° (sensor resolution – 13 MP) and a module with a telephoto lens that provides 5x optical and 50x hybrid zoom. In the second case, an optically stabilized sensor with a resolution of 8 megapixels is used.
Mi 11 Pro is the company’s first smartphone with IP68 protection. In fact, it can withstand much deeper immersion under water than is regulated by the IP68 degree. So, the company made an experimental swim with him to a depth of 42 meters – and the Mi 11 Pro remained operational.
Mi 11 Pro also supports Wi-Fi 6E, is equipped with an IR emitter and an NFC module, Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 interface is used as the OS. In terms of memory, the Mi 11 Pro uses LPDDR5-6400 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash.
Prices have already been announced. The base version, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash, costs $ 760. Versions with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of flash and 12GB and 256GB of flash are priced at $ 810 and $ 870, respectively.
Xiaomi is preparing a super-cheap Redmi A1 smartphone, and it will be a global model
Xiaomi will launch a very affordable smartphone under the Redmi brand. The novelty will be called Redmi A1, and it has already appeared in the databases of various regulators and industry groups (IMEI, FCC, TUV Rheinland), as well as in the Geekbench 5 database. Thanks to this, there are already some technical details about the device.
Redmi A1 has part numbers 220733SL, 220733SG and 220733SPI – these nomenclature differences indicate that the device will be sold in different countries and regions. Based on Geekbench data, the Redmi A1 is powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 SoC with a quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and runs Android 12. According to the FCC database, the Redmi A1 is 164.67mm long and 75mm wide. .56 mm.
There is speculation that Redmi A1 will be released under another Xiaomi brand – Poco. It’s just not yet clear when the official premiere of the novelty will take place.
Folding smartphone Xiaomi Mix Fold has fallen in price in China to the level of Xiaomi 12S Ultra
Xiaomi has launched the next generation of its foldable smartphone, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2. Pre-orders have already begun to be accepted in China. Meanwhile, the first generation of Xiaomi Mix Fold has fallen in price to a record level.
Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is priced starting at $1,335. The first generation is now available in China for $1,038 with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. For so much, the device is now offered on the JD.com site. At the same price, you can buy a flagship, but standard Xiaomi 12S Ultra smartphone in the maximum configuration.
Recall, Xiaomi Mix Fold debuted in the spring of 2021. Features include an 8.01-inch 2480 x 1860 pixel flexible AMOLED panel, a 6.52-inch 2520 x 840-pixel AMOLED external screen, a triple rear camera (108, 13 and 8 MP), Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash memory, NFC, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, two rechargeable batteries with a total capacity of 5020 mAh with support for 67 W charging.
Still, this is not the reason for the rise in price: the iPhone 14 Pro will receive at least 128 GB of permanent memory, despite the price increase
The network has new data about future models of the iPhone 14 Pro. It is reported that the new items will receive in the minimum configuration only 128 GB of permanent memory, although earlier it was said about a minimum of 256 GB. However, prices will be higher.
Haitong International analyst Jeff Pu suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max models will still have the same storage capacity as the iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max. That is, we are talking about options for 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB.
Apple plans to assemble 91 million iPhone 14s in the second half of 2022, which is more than the iPhone 13 assembly in the same period last year. Then the company was able to collect 84 million pieces.
And Ming-Chi Kuo said that the iPhone 14 Pro models will be more expensive. The iPhone 14 Pro is rumored to be priced at $1,099 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will cost $1,199, although this has yet to be officially confirmed.
As for the older models of smartphones, they are credited with cutouts instead of “monobrows”, A16 processors and a new purple color. Perhaps the increase in prices will be affected just by the use of a more powerful and expensive processor, as well as RAM.
Apple augmented reality glasses are expected to appear in 2024. Jeff Pu believes that they will appear at the end of 2024.
