Mi 11 Step Outside China
On the evening of February 8th, Xiaomi for the global market officially released Mi 11 flagship phone. Mi 11 priced at 749 Euros for 8GB + 127GB and 799 Euros for 8GB + 256GB version. With a current exchange rate of Euros to RMB, it translates to RMB 5826 and RMB 6215 respectively. In the domestic market (China) both storage versions priced at RMB 3999 and RMB 4299 respectively. Comparing the price with the domestic Chinese domestic market, Mi 11 global price is nearly 45 percent higher.
Prices may be very market to market due to different tax policies, we can understand this, but a 45 percent price hike is questionable. In this regard, “compared to the domestic starting price of 3999 yuan, this time its overseas price premium reached 54%, it can be said that the real is earning money from foreigners to subsidize domestic users” Chinese media AnTuTu stated earlier, and I believe so.
In terms of core configuration, the global version of Mi 11 is basically the same as the China line, but there is no 12GB memory model, and in terms of the charger, a 55W Gan charger is included in the box.
In terms of specifications, Mi 11 uses a 6.81-inch 2K quad-curved AMOLED screen that supports a 120Hz refresh rate and 480Hz touch sampling rate. The brightness is 900nit, and the peak brightness can reach 1500nit and it also supports a primary color screen and 10bit color depth.
The Xiaomi 11 is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 chip, which uses a 5nm process that improves CPU performance by 25% and reduces power consumption by 25% compared to the previous generation Snapdragon 865 processor, and improves GPU performance by 35% and reduces power consumption by 20%.
