Late last month Xiaomi took the wraps off the Mi 11, the world’s first smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset. Today the company had its first sale of the device in its home market of China, and it looks like it was a resounding success.
Xiaomi managed to sell over 350,000 Mi 11 units in just five minutes. The total value of those exceeded CNY 1.5 billion. We’re assuming people in China have been convinced by the phone’s amazing specs to price ratio and we’re hoping Xiaomi launches it in other countries very soon.
The Mi 11 has a 6.81-inch 1440p 120 Hz AMOLED touchscreen that got an A+ rating from DisplayMate, a triple rear camera setup with a 108 MP main shooter, a 13 MP ultrawide, and a 5 MP macro cam, a 20 MP selfie shooter embedded in the screen’s punch-hole, 8/12 GB of RAM, 128/256GB of storage, and a 4,600 mAh battery with 55W fast wired charging and 50W fast wireless charging. The Mi 11 runs Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 on top.
