Right now Xiaomi is saying three new gadgets – the 11T, the 11T Professional and the 11 Lite 5G NE. We’ve had the primary two in for overview for a bit now and are capable of give some first-hand experiences with the telephones at present.
The Xiaomi 11T collection – which by the way in which isn’t known as anymore “Mi” within the identify, it’s actually simply “Xiaomi 11T” now, are purported to be additions to the corporate’s flagship line-up, however coming in at lower cost factors. We had reviewed the Mi 11 back in March and the massive brother, the Mi 11 Ultra in July, so make sure that to learn these items because the 11T collection matches into the line-up, albeit being totally different.
What defines the 11T collection is the truth that they’re barely decrease priced and extra finances than the unique Mi 11, notably on the show facet which has now been diminished to a 1080p panel. Construct high quality can be totally different, and eventually, we’re seeing a distinct set of SoC choices relying on whether or not you get the common 11T or the higher-end 11T Professional.

Beginning off with the SoCs, the 2 11T gadgets are completely fascinating telephones as in addition to the standard Samsung Galaxy gadgets every year who’re powered by Snapdragon and Exynos SoCs, Xiaomi is using an analogous technique right here with the 11T collection in dual-sourcing each from Qualcomm and from MediaTek.
The common 11T is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 “Extremely” – we’re undecided what the Extremely right here stands for however it appears it’s associated to a excessive clocked NPU – there are not any variations on the CPU clocks. The SoC incorporates a Cortex-A78 at as much as three.00GHz, three A78’s at 2.60GHz, and 4 A55’s at 2.00GHz. The GPU is a MaliG77MP9, though we are able to’t verify the frequency. That is MediaTek’s highest finish chip at this second in time, so it’s fairly fascinating. What additionally makes it particular is that it’s on TSMC’s 6nm course of node, and it’s the primary chip we’ve had in our arms on this node.
The Snapdragon 888 wants no introduction, and that’s what’s powering the 11T Professional. There are just a few oddities with the chip although, which we’ll cowl within the system efficiency part, however the way in which Xiaomi is configuring the chip isn’t fairly flagship degree when it comes to behaviour.
What’s very thrilling concerning the two gadgets with differing SoCs is that each telephones are in any other case completely equivalent in specs. It’s basically the identical telephone, simply with a distinct SoC, and totally different charging capabilities. For apples-to-apples chipset comparisons, it not often will get higher than this, although we’ll see that there are behavioural discrepancies.
The again of the telephone is comparatively generic with its glass again. One factor to notice right here is that the telephone is a little more on the broader facet at 76.9mm. Weight is cheap at 203-204g as a result of 5000mAh battery.
Typically, the construct high quality and design of the telephone isn’t fairly as engaging and modern as what we noticed on the Mi 11, and it does really feel like a barely cheaper / decrease finish mannequin within the Mi 11 flagship collection.
On the digicam facet of issues, Xiaomi is using a 108MP sensor, however this isn’t the HMX that was discovered within the Mi 11 however quite the smaller HM2 sensor which makes use of zero.7µm pixels in comparison with zero.8µm on the sibling. The optics are 24mm equal focal size at f/1.75 aperture, however with out OIS.
There’s a 5MP telephoto module however that is solely used for macro pictures, it will possibly’t be used for any precise zooming in.
Lastly, there’s a primary 8MP ultra-wide with f/2.2 and 120° subject of view – it’s actually primary. Typically, the entire digicam setup is easy and Xiaomi doesn’t give it too nice specs.
Xiaomi is focusing round fast-charging in these gadgets, notably the 11T Professional comes with a 120W charger. It performs as marketed; nevertheless, we’ll be speaking concerning the matter in additional depth within the overview.
The 11T begins at 499€, which is kind of affordable, and the 11T Professional begins at 649€ – which is definitely fairly steep provided that one can have the Mi 11 for round 715€ these days, the telephone must by some means rationalise itself in its differentiations in comparison with its collection sibling.
