A screen that will look familiar
No matter how many features it has, processor potential and a large screen, the Mi 11 Ultra will attract all eyes for its peculiar rear screen. Is 1.1 inch screen It will serve to take a quick look at the notifications, see the time and, mainly, to see ourselves perfectly at the moment we go to take a photo with the rear cameras.
This screen has been included to balance the huge camera module that sits on the back of the device, so that the step is a little more balanced taking it to the other end of the terminal, instead of leaving a square in the middle. It is still a large block, but the presence of the screen is surely a plus for many users.
But in addition to the peculiarity of placing a small screen on the back of the device, the most curious thing is that apparently, said screen comes directly inherited from the production chain of another Xiaomi product. And it is that as confirmed by Lei Jun, CEO of the brand, the manufacturer is using the screens of the Mi Band 5.
A Mi Band hidden in the phone
Technically we could say that the Mi 11 Ultra hides a Mi Band inside, however, everything is limited to the screen. The rest of the electronics is not included, so everything is visual. It is unknown if this decision seeks to take advantage of the excess stock of screens of the Mi Band (remember that the Mi Smart Band 6 has a new screen), but having the volume of the Mi Band that is sold and the volume that this phone could reach, it can that most likely Xiaomi has taken advantage of the stock to lower costs in its flagship.
A curiosity amidst a shower of specifications
This detail is nothing more than a quirk hidden among a large list of specifications. Recall that the Mi 11 Ultra is Xiaomi’s most ambitious proposal, with a processor Snapdragon 888, a very interesting 50 megapixel sensor with a size of 1 / 1.12 ”and a spectacular screen with WQHD + resolution and 120 Hz refresh.
To all that, we must add a ceramic finish that allows the Mi 11 Ultra to achieve an extremely premium look and feel, which perfectly matches the list of high-end specifications offered. The price, however, is probably the aspect that clashes the most within Xiaomi’s philosophy, since the model with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage will have an approximate price of about 1,200 euros. We figured you couldn’t have everything, right?
