It is not because the “Mi” has disappeared from its name that the Xiaomi 11 will not have lots of friends. As usual with the Chinese firm, each model is entitled to many variations. The proof once again with its 3 new versions of the series formerly called Mi 11: the 11T, the 11T Pro, and the 11 Lite 5G NE Recently,
Xiaomi announced that it had decided to modify its score a bit, and to remove the Mi from the name of its smartphones, for the sake of readability. And it’s true that we understand why, when we know that its last series was already rich in Mi 11, Mi 11 Lite, Mi 11 Lite 5G, Mi 11i 5G, and Mi 11 Ultra. If you find that it was already not easy to navigate, know that the range has just seen the arrival of the Xiaomi 11T, 11T Pro, and 11T-Lite 5G NE. The name may have been shortened a bit, but certainly not the number of smartphones released by the Chinese firm, decidedly particularly applied to occupy all areas, from entry to high-end.
Thanks to this strategy of multiplying models, Xiaomi managed a few weeks ago to pass Samsung in terms of sales of smartphones in the world, and the Chinese firm simply plans to become world number 1 in the next three years. A great ambition, which is further fueled by the arrival of these new models from the range formerly called Mi 11, in order to offer users more and more choices.
XIAOMI 11T AND 11T PRO, ALMOST TWINS
The 11T and 11T Pro look like two drops of water but are quite different from the original Mi 11. They are equipped with a superb 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD + screen, with an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz. On the back of the 11T and 11T Pro, there is a triple sensor, with a 180 Megapixel module, an ultra large-angle of 8 Megapixels, and a macro of 5 Megapixels. During the presentation conference, Xiaomiinsisted on optimal use for videos, even with the possibility of filming in 8K. For the selfie camera, a 16 Megapixel sensor was chosen. So what is it that differentiates these two models? Quite simply their processor. The Xiaomi 11T is equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chip coupled with 8 GB of RAM, while the 11T Pro has a Snapdragon 888 chip, coupled with 8 or 12 GB of RAM. The other difference can be seen in recharging, the 11T benefiting “only” from a fast charge of 67W, against 120W for the 11T Pro, equipped with the HyperCharge technology developed by Xiaomi. We are thus promised that it will be possible to go from 0 to 100% battery in just … 17 minutes
THE NEW EDITION OF MI 11 LITE 5G
But that’s not all. After Apple and its iPhone SE, or Samsung coming out of the Galaxy FE (Fan Edition), Xiaomi in turn is exploring new versions of its own models, this time with the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE. NE here means New Edition. It is simply a more compact and affordable version of the Mi 11 Lite 5G, released earlier in the year. Carried by a Snapdragon 778G processor coupled with 6 or 8 GB of RAM, this new model offers an Amoled Full HD + screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. It also has a triple camera, including a 64 Megapixel sensor, an ultra 8 Megapixel wide-angle, and a 5 Megapixel macro. For selfies, a 20 Megapixel sensor is equipped. As for the fast charge, it will be “only” 33W, which is still a very good asset for a mid-range smartphone, whose price should be from only 369 euros without package, against 499 euros for the 11T, and 649 euros for the 11T Pro. So, which one are you going to fall for?
