Earlier this week, Xiaomi officially discontinued Mi 10 Pro in China. Followed by that, the regular Mi 10 went out of stock across all the online retailers in the country. Then, a mysterious Xiaomi smartphone powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 popped up on Geekbench. This device is expected to be one of the Mi 11 series smartphones. Now, certain specs of this phone’s camera have been tipped.
According to popular Chinese leakster Digital Chat Station, Xiaomi’s first Snapdragon 875 handset will feature a 48MP ultra-wide camera with a pixel size of 0.8μm. The tipster did not mention the name of this device but we believe it to be Mi 11 Pro and not the regular Mi 11.
Apart from this minute detail, he also hinted that the Mi 11 series will arrive with improvements in stabilization. Again, it is not sure either the standard, higher, or both variants will come with an OIS upgrade. Anyway, we expect to learn more about these phones in the coming days.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro were the first Snapdragon 865-powered Chinese smartphones. In fact, they were only second to the Galaxy S20 series overall. The same is expected to be for next year as the same tipster claims that Xiaomi will be the first Chinese smartphone maker to launch Snapdragon 865 phones – Mi 11 series.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 series is rumored to debut in either late January or in February just like the Galaxy S21 series. Hence, it makes sense for these devices to show up on Geekbench and certification bureaus as they might be in the testing phase at the moment.
