Qualcomm just unveiled the Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform for flagship phones that arrive next year. And identical to the last year, Xiaomi has confirmed as we speak that its Mi 11 series will probably be one of the premium flagship series to be powered by this chipset.
“I’m glad that our new flagship smartphone Mi 11 will be one of the first devices with Snapdragon 888. This is another cutting-edge product from us and will be loaded with various hardcore technologies,” stated Lei Jun, Founder, chairman, and CEO of Xiaomi.
Xiaomi is one of the many strategic OEM partners for Qualcomm, alongside Lenovo, LG, Motorola, Realme, OnePlus, and others. No other details for the upcoming Mi 11 series were doled out through the presentation. But, we do know a few issues, because of some recent leaks.
What can we expect from the Mi 11 series you ask? Since it will be powered by the new Snapdragon 888 5G chipset, you will notice the unique camera and gaming advancements. It would possibly feature a QHD+ display together with MEMC, SDR-to-HDR tone mapping, and AI upscaling support. It will even be interesting to see whether or not Xiaomi will equip its long-rumored foldable phone (that will possibly arrive with the Mi Mix branding) with the Snapdragon 888 chipset.
As far as rumors go, Xiaomi will unveil the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro next month, i.e early January. That’s an entire month earlier than the usual February launch schedule for the company’s flagship lineup. We will share more details on the Mi 11 lineup as and when they pour in. So, keep tuned for more information.
