In December last year, the Xiaomi Mi 11 hit the market, starting at 3,999 yuan ($618). It’s the world’s first smartphone coming with the Snapdragon 888 and supporting computational photography. In addition, Xiaomi also released the Mi 11 Lei Jun Signature Edition. But we have been waiting for the Mi 11 Pro version, which has not been released yet. According to the news, there is only the basic version of Mi 11 before the Spring Festival, and the Mi 11 Pro version can only come after the Spring Festival (February 12).
As the Weibo blogger proves, the screen parameters of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi 11 are exactly the same. This means the same hole-punch screen will have a selfie camera opening in the upper left corner. However, the rear lens module may have some differences.
Now, Twitter tipster @BenGeskin made a rendering of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro based on the news. The front side uses a screen similar to the Xiaomi Mi 11, the back uses a new matrix quad-camera design, and the right side of the camera module carries dual flash and sensor information.
According to the previous MIUI leaked code, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will also support MEMC video frame supplement, video real-time SDR to HDR and other functions.
Xiaomi has implemented MEMC in several previous smartphones, including the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro. But the company has not yet provided video real-time SDR to HDR or video super-resolution functions in any of its devices. There are other devices on the market that provide real-time SDR to HDR conversion for video. Say, we can mention the OPPO Find X2 Pro and the OnePlus 8 Pro. At present, it is unclear whether Xiaomi will use self-developed display technology to provide these functions. Maybe it will obtain authorization from companies such as Pixelworks.
