The Xiaomi 11T & 11T Professional Overview: Two Chips, With a Battery Focus – AnandTech

The Xiaomi 11T & 11T Professional Overview: Two Chips, With a Battery Focus – AnandTech

In the present day 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 sequence – which by the way in which isn’t known as anymore “Mi” within the identify, it’s actually simply “Xiaomi 11T” now, are speculated 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 sequence suits into the line-up, albeit being totally different.

What defines the 11T sequence is the truth that they’re barely decrease priced and extra funds 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 at last, we’re seeing a special 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 same old Samsung Galaxy gadgets every year who’re powered by Snapdragon and Exynos SoCs, Xiaomi is using an analogous technique right here with the 11T sequence in dual-sourcing each from Qualcomm and from MediaTek.

The common 11T is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 “Extremely” – we’re unsure what the Extremely right here stands for nevertheless 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 will’t affirm 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 fingers on this node.

The Snapdragon 888 wants no introduction, and that’s what’s powering the 11T Professional. There are a number of 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 stage 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 an identical in specs. It’s basically the identical telephone, simply with a special SoC, and totally different charging capabilities. For apples-to-apples chipset comparisons, it hardly ever 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 affordable at 203-204g because of the 5000mAh battery.

Typically, the construct high quality and design of the telephone isn’t fairly as engaging and smooth 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 sequence.

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 fairly 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 photographs, it may’t be used for any precise zooming in.

Lastly, there’s a fundamental 8MP ultra-wide with f/2.2 and 120° area of view – it’s actually fundamental. 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 sort 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 in some way rationalise itself in its differentiations in comparison with its sequence sibling.
