Mi 11 video sample released by Xiaomi, benchmark results show Snapdragon 888’s performance

Mi 11 teasers have started to hit the internet to set the stage for Xiaomi’s new flagship phone. One of the first teasers shows that the new smartphone in the Mi series will be equipped with “computer photography” technology in order to offer an unmistakable camera experience. The Mi 11 is also touted for offering enhanced photography and videography in low light conditions. In addition, Xiaomi has confirmed the presence of LPDDR5 RAM on the Mi 11. The new revelations come just days before the Mi 11 launches in the Chinese market.

According to some teasers posted on Weibo, the Xiaomi Mi 11 will contain computational photography, which will likely use software algorithms alongside brand new camera hardware. Xiaomi has provided a video sample to highlight the improved low-light videography of the new Mi flagship. You can also expect improved optics over the existing Mi 10 models for improved performance results.

In addition to the camera-focused details, Xiaomi has released another teaser on Weibo that confirms the LPDDR5 RAM on the Mi 11 along with speeds of up to 6.4 Gbps. The company used the same RAM for the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro as well. This time pairing the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC should bring some improvements over the earlier models, however.

To give some insight into the improved performance, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has also published the Geekbench results of the Mi 11 on Weibo. The phone is shown to have a single-core score of 1,135 and a multi-core score of 3,818. These numbers are of course significantly higher than the 780 and 2,747 values ​​we got on the Geekbench single-core and multi-core tests during our Mi 10 test.
