After the release of the Mi 11, Xiaomi organized a highly publicized virtual event at the end of March to present the other members of its flagship Mi 11 range. Among the many phones announced during this Xiaomi “Mega Launch”, the Mi 11 Ultra was caught our attention with its luxury features and above all, its second screen. Located on the photo block, it makes it easier to take group photos and selfies by providing us with video feedback. You can also count on it to receive notifications about things like battery life and incoming calls.
The Mi 11 family has five members in France: the Mi 11 Lite, the Mi 11 Lite 5G, the Mi 11, the Mi 11i and the Mi 11 Ultra. With five options available, it can be difficult to determine which Mi 11 phone is right for you.
Note that the Mi 11 Ultra is the most sophisticated member of the range, placed at the end of the spectrum next to the Mi 11. Although it has the same characteristics, like the Snapdragon 888 chipset and the fingerprint reader built into the screen, it’s significantly heavier, in part thanks to additional options like the second screen and a periscope-type telephoto lens that is said to be able to see farther than Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The Mi 11 Lite 4G is, as the name suggests, the only member that is not compatible with 5G.
At the other end of the Mi 11 spectrum, we find the Mi 11 Lite and the Mi 11 Lite 5G. The Mi 11 Lite is the only 4G phone in the series but also the most affordable. The Mi 11 Lite 4G is also the only phone with a headphone jack, which is missing from its 5G-enabled counterpart. The Mi 11i is a little closer to the classic Mi 11 and comes to hunt in the lands of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.
