The Snapdragon 888 mobile platform was launched a few days back at the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2020 and it’s the successor to Snapdragon 865. The Xiaomi Mi 11 has been a matter of leaks for quite some time. We’ve seen several leaks pointing towards the possible specs of the handset such as a 120Hz QHD+ display.
The main camera of the Mi 11 should bring a resolution of 108MP, the other two rear sensors of the model will have 13 and 5 MP of resolution. These might be an ultra-wide lens and a macro. We can also expect a 6.67-inch IPS LCD screen and a battery of 4,820 mAh capacity.
Now we’ve to see which becomes the first to launch a phone with the Snapdragon 888 chipset. Some companies in the race include Realme, Samsung, and others. So, it’s going to be a good competition in 2021.
Right now, Xiaomi has not said any words on the global release of the Mi 11.
