- Xiaomi is apparently readying a Mi 11 Pro as well.
- The phone is said to feature the same screen specs as the standard model.
- Confirmation of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro has now been spotted in MIUI 12â€™s Gallery app.
Per an XDA teardown, the stock app makes mention of the phone and seemingly suggests it will have a curved display, too. Beyond this, not much else is known about the phone beyond the info garnered from leaks. But at least now you can be assured a Pro model is in the works for 2021.
Original article: December 30, 2020 (1:50 AM ET): Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 earlier this week, making for a solid upgrade in theory over the standard Mi 10. The Mi 10 Pro was also released earlier this year, but Xiaomi didnâ€™t mention a Mi 11 Pro at Tuesdayâ€™s launch event.Â
Now, Weibo tipster Digital Chat Station has suggested that a Mi 11 Pro is indeed coming. More specifically, the leaker alleges that the Pro variant has â€œexactly the sameâ€� screen specs as the standard model. Check out the screenshot below.
The leaker also claimed in a previous comment that the standard and Pro models wouldnâ€™t launch together and that the standard variant would be the only option available before the Spring Festival (held in mid-February). In other words, itâ€™s suggested that a Pro model would be available thereafter.
The vanilla Mi 11 packs a QHD+ OLED screen for the first time since 2016â€™s Mi Note Pro. But it also offers a 120Hz refresh rate, punch-hole cutout, and Gorilla Glass Victus. So if the tipster is correct about the Pro modelâ€™s existence and screen details, then it could deliver a great display experience on paper too.
Weâ€™ve asked Xiaomi for comment regarding the existence of the Mi 11 Pro but the company said it had nothing to share right now. Nevertheless, weâ€™d expect a Pro model to feature faster wired charging and telephoto cameras, among other upgrades.
Digital Chat Station also asserts that Xiaomi is working on a new phone with an under-screen selfie camera. This wouldnâ€™t be a surprise, as the manufacturer confirmed in August that it will be mass-producing phones with this tech in 2021.
