Several months ago, Xiaomi announced the 11i and 11i HyperCharge smartphones. Android 12 had been available for a few months by then, but Google had yet to release new devices that used it.
It was also omitted that MIUI 13 would run on the smartphones, which were shown to run MIUI 12.5, a version of Android 11.
Xiaomi is already rolling out the long-awaited Android 12 upgrade with MIUI 13. We are happy to share this wonderful news with you. I was disappointed by how few technical details are included in this release.
There wasn’t a complete changelog for all the improvements brought about by Android 12. However, you can expect to see all the new features introduced in Android 12 such as Monet Engine and more 'visible' security options.
MIUI 13 is notable for its improved user interface, which is more responsive and efficient than ever before. It is important to remember that this is just the beginning of the Xiaomi 11i phones. It is likely that these smartphones will receive MIUI 13.5 and MIUI 14.
In terms of specs, the Xiaomi 11i and Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge are basically the same, but their charging speed and battery capacity are slightly different. While the vanilla version has a larger 5,160 mAh battery, it charges at a slower 67 W.
Xiaomi's 11i HyperCharge is dubbed 'hypercharge' because of its 120 W charging speed, even though the battery is smaller at 4,500 mAh.
The Vanilla version weighs 204 grams and HyperCharge weighs 201 grams. We have reached the end of the divergences for now.
In order to continue the theme of resemblance, both devices are powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC. There is a 108MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP macro camera on the rear of both phones.
They both have a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. A 16-megapixel front-facing camera alongside Face Unlock and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner are both available on both Xiaomi 11i models.
