After releasing Redmi Note 10 Pro, Xiaomi Nepal has gone on to unveil the Mi 11 in Nepal, its flagship for this year that comes equipped with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 chipset.
The phone will succeed last year’s Mi 10 5G, which was the first 5G phone in Nepal and had the likes of Snapdragon 865 and 108MP camera.
As said, you get the new Snapdragon 888 processor with a vapor chamber cooling system to cool down the powerful chipset while at the helm is 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. However, you’ll only get the 8GB/256GB variant here in Nepal.
The brand-new silicon drives a 6.81-inch OLED panel with some perks. The screen has QHD+ resolution (3,200 x 1,440 pixels), making it the first Mi flagship phone to have it since the Mi Note Pro which came back in 2015. There’s also a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate up from Mi 10’s 90Hz refresh rate screen. Besides that, the screen is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus and has a peak brightness of 1,500 nits.
If you look at the number, that’s a really bright screen. In fact, Xiaomi says that the Mi 11 screen shattered 13 records of DisplayMate, which includes peak brightness for OLED panels, screen reflectivity, contrast, and color accuracy.
Let’s see what the Xiaomi Mi 11 has to offer and what its price is in Nepal.
What about the charger and fast charging?
The phone is really powerful — thanks to the new processor — there’s no doubt, but it doesn’t mean anything if there’s not enough juice to power it up. Xiaomi, though, has got you covered with a 4,600mAh battery, claiming it to last at least a full day of usage.
Even if the battery drains out, you’ll be able to charge the phone via Xiaomi’s Mi Charge Turbo system. It brings 55W wired charging to the table which charges the phone fully in 45 minutes, whilst the 50W wireless charging tops up the phone in 53 minutes. The phone also has 10W reverse wireless charging.
Fortunately, to make use of its charging prowess, the phone ships with a charging adapter right out of the box.
Other notable features
Let’s get to the meat of the matter — the camera. The Xiaomi Mi 11 comes with 108MP primary camera with f/1.85 aperture, 1/1.33-inch sensor size, and OIS. Then there’s a 13MP ultra-wide camera with f/2.4 lens and 123-degree FoV, and finally a 5MP telephoto macro sensor with f/2.4 lens and 50mm equivalent.
Although the phone lacks a punch in the telephoto camera, it brings 8K recordings, four-in-one pixel binned shots with a 108MP camera, and night video mode for low light video shots.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 offers MIUI 12.5 out of the box, bringing in vast new features like super wallpaper options, nature-inspired system notification sounds, and other features. It also brings major privacy features, including sandboxed access for apps that need access to storage, web tracking protection, and more.
Aside from that, the phone brings Harman Kardon stereo speakers, heart rate detection through the in-display fingerprint sensor, IR blaster, NFC, WiFi 6E, and more.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Price in Nepal and Availability
Like said, the Xiaomi Mi 11 comes in an 8GB/256GB variant only for a price of NPR 89,999 in Nepal. That’s a premium for a phone from a brand that has been providing phones at a great value, but given how other flagships with similar specs are being sold at 2x the cost, the Mi 11 seems pretty reasonable.
To make things a bit ingestible, Xiaomi is offering 1-year breakage insurance for purchases made till June 30, 2021.
