Nowadays, smartphone cameras have all become sophisticated and powerful, allowing the capture of images and videos with great detail and quality. Most smartphone makers are happy to brag about these cameras, although a few try to put some context behind these sensors. More than just being able to take great photos or record smooth videos, Xiaomi is creating a new “Cinemagic” buzzword around the idea of ditching heavy and expensive filming equipment for a Xiaomi 11T or, better yet, a Xiaomi 11T Pro.
Truth be told, the Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro are two peas from the same pod. Unless you take a look at the spec sheet, there is no visual distinction between the two, and the differences between the two boil down to two particular features.
The Xiaomi 11T Pro above is powered by a Snapdragon 888 and comes with 8GB or 12GB of RAM. It’s also the first Xiaomi phone to launch with the company’s 120W HyperCharge which can fill the 5,000mAh battery in just 17 minutes. In contrast, the base Xiaomi 11T runs on a MediaTek 1200 5G processor with 8GB of RAM and comes with a standard turbo charging capacity of 67W.
In almost every other aspect the two have similar specs, up to the 6.67-inch 120Hz display with a 480Hz touch sample rate, although Xiaomi wants everyone to know that the The 11T Pro’s display received an A + from DisplayMate. For this advertised Cinemagic experience, the two share the exact same set of cameras with a 108MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, and a 5MP telemacro camera with 2x zoom. The Xiaomi 11T starts at 499 EUR ($ 590), while the Xiaomi 11T Pro goes from 649 EUR ($ 770) to 749 EUR ($ 890) with maximum specs.
Xiaomi is also launching a Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE, which can easily be mistaken for the already existing Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G. In addition to dropping the “Mi” brand as previously indicated, this “NE” version is intended to be a slightly more affordable version of the mid-range model from early 2021, now powered by a Snapdragon 778G 5G processor with 6 or 8 GB of RAM. . Although it has the same FHD + resolution as the Xiaomi 11T, its 6.55-inch display only achieves 90Hz refresh rates and 240Hz touch sample rates.
Instead of “Cinemagic,” Xiaomi is tackling a “Cinematic” spiel with the phone’s 64 MP main camera, 8 MP ultra-wide camera and 5 MP telemacro shooter. The 20MP front camera, however, might be more appealing to selfie enthusiasts. Available in more trendy colors, which includes a distinctive Snowflake White option, to appeal to younger buyers, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE will retail for 369 EUR, or around $ 440.
