The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a lot to offer, to say the least. This smartphone comes with a second display on the back, as leaks suggested. On top of that, it offers crazy fast wireless charging, and truly powerful specs.
Let’s talk about the design for a second first, though. From the front, the design does resemble its sibling. It includes a display camera hole in the top-left corner. Its display is curved, in fact, this is a quad-curved panel that the company refers to as “DotDisplay”.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is made out of metal and ceramic
The bezels are basically non-existent. All of the phone’s physical buttons sit on the right-hand side. You will notice that the phone’s back is curved towards the sides, while a huge camera module sits on the back. Inside that module, the company included three cameras. More on that soon. The phone is made out of metal and ceramic.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra features a 6.81-inch QHD+ (3200 x 1440) AMOLED display. This display delivers a 120Hz refresh rate, and 480Hz touch sampling rate. The display also offers an adaptive refresh rate (30Hz / 60Hz / 90Hz / 120Hz). Xiaomi refers to this feature as “AdaptiveSync”.
The display does support HDR10+ content, and it offers 1.07 billion colors. It is rated as an A+ panel by DisplayMate, and it’s protected by the Gorilla Glass Victus, Corning’s latest glass protection.
Its rear-facing display measures 1.1 inches in diagonal
Its rear-facing display measures 1.1 inches. It’s an AMOLED panel with a resolution of 126 x 294, and it offers 400 nits peak brightness. This display can be on all the time, if you want it to.
The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 888 SoC, the most powerful processor Qualcomm has to offer. Xiaomi also included 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM here, along with 256GB of UFS 3.1 flash storage. Three-phase cooling technology is also included.
There are three cameras included on the back, along with secondary display
Now, in regards to those cameras. A 50-megapixel main camera (1.4um pixel size, 2.8um 4-in-1 Super Pixel, f/1.95 aperture, 8P lens, 85-degree FoV) leads the pack on the back. A 48-megapixel ultra-wide camera (128-degree FoV, f/2.2 aperture, 0.8um pixel size, 1.6um 4-in-1 Super Pixel, PDAF, 7P lens, macro camera, 8K video recording) is also included.

A 20-megapixel camera (f/2.2 aperture, 0.8m pixel size, 1.6um 4-in-1 Super Pixel, 78-degree FoV, fixed focus) sits on the front side of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.
