Preface

When Xiaomi released Xiaomi 11 at the end of last year’s solar year everyone knew that there would definitely be Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra to follow, but what kind of phones these two would make and what kind of new technology would be added, no one knew at that time.

Yesterday evening, the two phones were officially released, counting down the time, they both as a latecomer to the Xiaomi 11 the big brother just a quarter of the time to play the market, but also considered to maintain full respect, and the next high-end flagship Xiaomi or even to challenge the entire Android phone emperor position, it will be the turn of the two newcomers to do.

From the Xiaomi 10 series, Xiaomi’s high-end products market has become, and Xiaomi 10’s Supreme Memorial Edition is the high-end and upward plucked, to the top, tasted the taste of victory and stand firm, the manufacturers naturally will not put this name on hold, so this time, Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra all at once on the –The company’s main goal is to provide the best possible service to its customers.

Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra Specifications Comparison

Design

From the above configuration details parameters comparison can be seen, the two phones in addition to the differences in camera and thickness of the slight difference, other aspects are exactly the same, so in the outer packaging, the two phones are also marked in addition to the front “Pro” and “Ultra “You can even put the two phones into each other’s boxes interchangeably and they match perfectly.

The black+gold color scheme has always been a great way to raise the tone and style of a product, and it looks great on Xiaomi’s two highest-end phones this year.

The two phones are identical in terms of screen parameters, and even if you compare them carefully, they are largely identical to the Xiaomi 11 Standard Edition released a quarter ago.

The same 6.81-inch single-hole quad-curved, the same 3200×1440 resolution, the same 120Hz high refresh rate, and 480Hz touch sampling rate, the same Samsung E4 light-emitting material, after I went into detail to compare the parameters of the Xiaomi 11 Standard Edition, I only found two differences, one is that the peak brightness of the Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra is 1700nit, a little higher than the Xiaomi 11 standard version of 1500nit, another point is the Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra support Dolby Atmos.

At the same time, these two phones are also the first Xiaomi phones to support Dolby Vision certification, and the first time a domestic phone supports Dolby Vision. As the top HDR format, Dolby Vision format can display 40 times higher brightness and 10 times lower brightness scenes than SDR video, as well as 50 times higher contrast ratio, while supporting a wider color gamut, and also wishing high brightness scenes and dark details in movie scenes, through the support of HDR dynamic metadata support allows for a different HDR effect for every frame in a movie.

High brightness and contrast ratio has always been very intuitive to show the advantages and disadvantages of a screen, if you do not know the phone screen in your hands is good or bad, it is usually because there is no comparison object, and the mall of those priced at tens of thousands of dollars or even hundreds of thousands of dollars of battery cost a high place is in the brightness that can be presented, that is completely invisible to your eyes before the content.

Other parameters did not improve does not mean that the Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra in terms of the screen no progress, on the contrary, it shows that even the standard version of Xiaomi 11, in terms of screen presentation has reached nearly no improvement in the place, which is definitely one of the best screens in the current cell phone products.

The rear lens on the two phones is the biggest difference between the two, but also Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra in Xiaomi 11 standard version of the biggest upgrade, the world’s first 50 megapixel 1/1.12 Samsung GN2 main camera lens is the bottom of the current cell phone products the largest CMOS, no one, in this year some other brands are still using last year’s GN1 as the main camera in when they release boasts, this time, Xiaomi’s two phones to the new larger flagship made standard, which is the embodiment of hard power.

But also formally because of this very large bottom CMOS, two phones in the rear lens volume and thickness compared to the Xiaomi 11 standard version increased a lot, of which Xiaomi 11 Ultra, if not unexpected, should be solid to take the title of the largest rear lens volume of a phone this year.

The volume of the camera is very difficult to do small because of the optics and imaging, so according to this idea, the larger the volume of the rear lens, the higher the photo quality will be, this is certainly not absolute, but put into this year’s Xiaomi 11 series of cell phones, is 100% accurate.

The rear lens of Xiaomi 11 Pro continues the design of the standard version of Xiaomi 11, but the whole is a circle larger; Xiaomi 11 Ultra, because each of the three lenses can be used as the main camera level, so the layout does not use the matrix, but directly horizontal, and then based on such a horizontal lens, to supplement the overall symmetry and beauty, a secondary screen design was added to the right side of the camera. Some brands have used a similar design. And the functionality is largely the same, usually for information reminders, time display, and photo preview.

The rear shell material, Xiaomi 11 Ultra industry-first marbled special edition rear shell, its biggest highlight is the difference between the pure black and white ceramic rear shell seen on the market, and the use of new ceramic processing technology, in the ceramic rear shell with a laser engraved subtly like marble texture, from the outside alone, it seems like a natural growth of marble pattern. The technology of the back shell of the mobile phone has been pulled to a new level.

The ceramic itself is something that many elegant and business people love, and this time Xiaomi has achieved the same marble pattern on the ceramic rear case technology, which is very helpful for it to successfully enter the high-end market.

Incidentally, recall the year Xiaomi 6 ceramic premium version of the first ceramic process, the year because of technical problems shipments are very rare, and now can actually be carved on the ceramic rear shell pattern, Xiaomi’s process and technical progress over the years are evident.

The design of the two phones is the same as the standard version of Xiaomi 11, Harman Kardon’s professional tuning certification is on the left side of the phone’s top bezel, followed by infrared, the bottom of the phone is the sound wave-inspired external release hole.

In the external sound experience, the two phones can act as a small speaker to use, and I have a sudden thought in the process of listening to music, if the two phones can be paired together into a set of 2.0 stereo speakers small phone, then the listening experience should be a step up.

Software

I have the two cell phones in hand MIUI system version 12.0.8.0, because it is early to get the phone, so it may be slightly different from the official release of the system version, here we are temporary to the hands of the two prevail.

MIUI 12 has been well received since its release, whether it’s the system interface or the experience, it’s a matter of courage to bring such a radical innovation in the case of Android phones that have the same general trend, and the MIUI team not only dares to do it but also does it very well.

In fact, in the case of the system is not a major upgrade, the release of the new phone in terms of system content is not much, after all, the phone in terms of hardware is now the point of concern for all friends, but here or mention some of the authors feel-good experience it.

Game Space game acceleration function, this for the phone I think is a very practical and can bring about qualitative changes in the function, now the game phone a lot, but most of the phone is not like a phone, but MIUI this application in the moment of opening you will feel their own phone in the “inside” on The moment you open this application, you will feel that your phone is transformed into a game machine on the “inside”, while its exterior is still the same as your standard phone design.

In this Game Space, you can adjust the GPU, and customize the touch control, micro-operation aiming and click operation stability in the advanced settings, and other very detailed small adjustments. The game will be a great success for every user who likes to play games.

Camera

The photography aspect is the main focus of these two phones, but also Xiaomi 11, Xiaomi 11 Pro, and Xiaomi 11 Ultra three phones in the appearance and parameters of the configuration of the biggest difference, we review the two phones in the lens of the configuration.

Xiaomi 11 Pro Camera

50-megapixel mega bottom GN2 main camera 1/1.12″ 8P lens, 2.8μm (4in1) large pixel OIS optical stabilization + 13 megapixel 123° equivalent 16mm focal length + 8-megapixel telephoto lens, equivalent 120mm focal length.

Xiaomi 11 Pro Camera

Xiaomi 11 Ultra Camera

50 megapixel’s base GN2 main camera 1/1.12″ 8P lens, 2.8μm (4in1) large pixel OIS optical stabilization + 48 megapixel’s IMX586 ultra-wide-angle lens, 128° mega field of view, equivalent 12mm focal length + 48 megapixel’s IMX586 telephoto macro lens, equivalent 120mm focal length + rear Flicker sensor integrated light sensor.

Xiaomi 11 Ultra Camera

As you can see, in addition to the main camera is the world’s first GN2, the other two lenses are different, so what are the differences in the actual photo experience and imaging effects, let’s compare the samples one by one.

The first is the Xiaomi 11 Pro daily shooting samples, shot in a fully automatic way, the picture only for compression processing, the original picture straight out without any post.

The first thing you can see is that the close-up flower samples, compared to the weather conditions and color temperature of the day, Xiaomi 11 Pro is the kind of processing that does not do too much retouching, many people say that the iPhone samples are real in fact, this is what they mean, and the flower edge sharpening and bokeh part of the combination is also relatively good, the prominent, the obscure, comfortable look and feel.

Another large scene building style is also the same as the flowers because it was shot in the evening at 5 o’clock, so from the sample is also able to see that the weather is about to set the atmosphere of the sun, the moon high in the air is a very good embellishment.

Xiaomi 11 Pro supports a 0.6x – 50x zoom range, the actual imaging effect of different focal lengths is relatively excellent, look at the sample photos.

Ultra-high zoom into the image sample can most directly illustrate the product power, you can see even in 5 times, 10 times the zoom sample, you can clearly see the building of each steel line, and are done horizontally and vertically, there is no loss of picture, in the current cell phone products, 10 times the zoom can have such an imaging effect, is absolutely first-class.

The night shot is the best test of a phone manufacturer’s tuning ability, and this has always been the major cell phone manufacturers to strive for the area, Xiaomi 11 Pro in this area also did a very good job. (All the following night photos, the left picture is not open night mode, the right picture is open night mode).

Xiaomi 11 Pro Moon Shot

Xiaomi 11 Pro’s night shot samples are very telling, first of all, when the camera lens was opened I was already very surprised at what I saw in the viewfinder because it was already more than 8 pm, but the scene in the viewfinder was like dusk, not so dark at all, and press the shutter after not opening the night mode, the photos taken are actually the same, the kind of full of I think the phone’s AI helped automatically shoot photos with night mode, because all the details and picture purity is very high, in such a hand shot on the already excellent night scene samples, open the night mode can do what optimization?

I found out from the comparison chart, or I know too little.

All of the samples after opening the night mode have done to suppress highlights and noise while improving the apparent brightness of the picture, giving more rich details, if you zoom in on the photo, you can even clearly see the edge details of the plant leaves in the photo in night mode, which Xiaomi’s self-researched night lord algorithm also plays its strength.

As a large cup of Xiaomi 11 Pro has been so good at taking pictures, then another very large cup of the flagship Xiaomi 11 Ultra and what can be done to improve it, we continue to look down the sample.

Xiaomi 11 first of all, the samples were taken at hand, the content of framing is the same as Xiaomi 11 Pro, to better see the comparison of the two phones, but I believe that we can also see through the samples, in this kind of daily framing content the style of the samples of the two phones is the same, the tone and texture are very consistent, after all, it is a company’s products, then you can compare the different things The place is in the extreme shooting content.

I used the Xiaomi 11 Ultra to take an additional super-telephoto sample of the moon during the day there is no need for more nonsense and explanation, the phone can have such an imaging effect, a photo is enough to explain the problem.

In terms of telephoto shooting, the Xiaomi 11 Ultra does a wider and longer, supporting 0.5x – 120x ultra-telephoto support, a machine that goes everywhere.

5x and 10x samples nothing to say, the actual effect and Xiaomi 11 Pro’s also the same, the details zoomed in is also clearly visible, in the ultra-high 120x zoom sample, although you can see that this is the effect of having digital zoom, then the sunset afterglow and buildings on the metallic luster interplay, the texture is also good.

Xiaomi 11 Ultra is not the first phone with 120x zoom before many people have said that such a high magnification on the phone century experience is not great because no one will use such a long focal length to take pictures, and handheld and extremely unstable, but I still want to say after using it, I can not use, but you can not do without, life is full of variables, not to mention a camera, in the case in a scene I really want to If I need such a zoom focal length in a scene I really want to record, but there are no products around to support it, that’s a pity.

In night mode, the Xiaomi 11 Ultra has the same style as the Xiaomi 11 Pro, as you can see from the sample photos, but the ultra-long focal length of the Xiaomi 11 still allows me to see some unseen content at night, such as the text content on the LED billboard on the other side of the lake, as well as the bright, clear outline of the moon in the sky.

120x zoom is the farthest distance in the focal length of the phone that exists on the market today, and this has brought many creators some new ideas on photography photos, Xiaomi 11 Pro as well as 11 Ultra that 1/1.12 size main camera lens with a large base of nearly an inch to bring very good imaging effects whether day or night photos, its rivals in this area by the reasoning is that it can no longer be a cell phone, but similar to the Sony RX100 series, Panasonic LX10 such as the ultimate carry-on card machine.

But as a cell phone, Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra and the official algorithm tuning, cell phone app direct map repair and networking direct output social network advantages, these are the card machine can not compare, perhaps the day the cell phone can really 1 inch large bottom to the popular, that may be the day these small card machine completely disappeared it.

Performance

The latest version of the AnTuTu V9 public beta version has been officially launched on the 22nd of this month, Xiaomi cell phone application store has also been updated on the shelves, so this Xiaomi 11 Pro/Ultra AnTuTu score test results will be based on AnTuTuTu V9 version, special attention, V9 score results can not be compared with the V8 each other.

I have two phones in hand, the configuration of Xiaomi 11 Pro is 12GB + 256GB, 11 Ultra is 12GB + 512GB version, other aspects will not say much, the performance of the two iron triangle is the same, we look directly at the Rabbit run scores.

According to the AnTuTu V9 runtime test, Xiaomi 11 Pro’s runtime score is 804210, storage test score is 59605, CPU score is 195297, GPU score is 311982, storage, read speed reached 1983.1MB/s, write speed reached 753.5MB/s.

Xiaomi 11 Pro AnTuTu Benchmark

The other Xiaomi 11 Ultra has a score of 829,915, a storage test score of 59,798, a CPU score of 208,789, a GPU score of 316,337, and a storage speed of 1,988.1MB/s for reading and 751.9MB/s for writing.

Xiaomi 11 Ultra AnTuTu Benchmark

The two phones only have a gap in storage capacity, Xiaomi 11 Ultra capacity is greater, so the final score of the embodiment of the 11 Ultra score is higher, after all, this is this year’s Xiaomi’s top products, there is such a score is also normal.

Besides, because the two phones I have received before the launch, individual manufacturers in the new machine before the launch will limit the Rabbit score networking, so as not to leak the new machine in the configuration data content, so in the final score presented on the appearance of a small line, please know this.

Games and battery

Xiaomi 11 Pro/Ultra in terms of battery capacity is also the same, the same 5000mAh large battery, but the thickness of the two phones are excellent control of the body, the former is 8.53mm the latter in the case of the same length and width figures, do more extreme, only 8.38mm, do not underestimate the thickness of the 0.15mm, the two phones would have belonged to the top products, internal space inch by inch, 5000mAh battery capacity can already be thinner than many 4600, 4700mAh phones on the market, not to mention the Xiaomi 11 Ultra using the screen or ceramic, the process will be more difficult.

Can do 5000mAh battery stuffed into less than 9mm body, this is because Xiaomi in these two phones is using the second generation of nano-silicon oxygen technology negative electrode cells, which is the industry-recognized next-generation battery technology, the debut is on the MIX Alpha, this time the second generation of technology based on security enhancements, to solve the problem of high silicon content under the battery long cycle, to advance the silicon negative electrode battery technology, the first mass production in the industry, this time, Xiaomi is again the leader.

After the author’s personal test, after 30 minutes of game time of “Peace Elite”, Xiaomi 11 Pro’s battery was reduced from 81% to 68%, dropping 13%, the game picture quality is naturally, needless to say, all open to the highest plus 90Hz frame rate output, the phone has a slight heat coming out during the game, the hand can feel it, but it belongs to that very mild touch, not It is a very mild touch that does not affect the player’s gaming experience.

Xiaomi 11 Ultra is also 30 minutes of “Peace Elite” game test, battery capacity from 52% reduced to 37%, power consumption of 15%, game quality, and Xiaomi 11 Pro is the same because the performance of the two phones core parameters is identical, so the reason for this 2% power gap should be due to the different scenarios encountered by the author in the process of playing the game.

Xiaomi 11 Pro play when the author is more vegetable, played three consecutive games, each game early landed in the box, and in the use of Xiaomi 11 Pro play only two, or the complete two games, a game of chicken, a game lasted until the first five.

The different scenarios bring different power consumption which is also normal there is no need to be too serious about this 2% power gap.

The same 30 minutes of game time, the image quality all open to the highest and limit and 60Hz refresh rate, Xiaomi 11 Pro power consumption 21%, Xiaomi 11 Ulta power consumption of 19%, you see, another 2% power consumption gap, but this time is Xiaomi 11 Pro power consumption of 2% more, these are the normal phenomenon of playing games, probably an average is a more accurate figure.

Then is the game frame rate, these two games belong to the test cell phone performance of the popular players, but, now that the game “Peace Elite” can no longer meet the cell phone performance test, smooth image quality + 90 frame rate to achieve more stable; but the “original God” side, because of large scenes and large maps, the high-quality situation is easy to let some cell phones defeat, but this situation for This situation does not exist for Xiaomi 11 Pro and Xiaomi 11 Ultra.

In terms of charging, both phones are equipped with 67W wired fast charge and 67W wireless fast charge, plus they have the same battery capacity, so the final presentation of the charging figures table is almost the same, every 5-10 minutes of time point will be 1% or 2% of the power difference, the overall words are 35 minutes can be full, then the official 36 minutes is one minute faster, which is enough.

There is one more thing to say, the two phones in the remaining 1% or 0% of the power to charge, the first 5 minutes have a super-fast charging effect, Xiaomi 11 Pro can be charged to 22%, 11 Ultra can be charged to 21%, the effect of emergency relief is very significant.

Summary

The official Xiaomi 11 Pro and Xiaomi 11 Ultra in the warm-up Xiaomi 11 Pro and Xiaomi 11 Ultra only gave simple and clear words: Android emperor.

The weight of these four words must be clear to everyone reading the article, which is the booming development of domestic cell phones for so many years every cell phone manufacturers want to do, and there have been several phones in the release of this term, but everyone’s heart is recognized that the Android king has never been settled.

This time the Xiaomi 11 Pro and 11 Ultra two cell phones alone in terms of performance have done a flawless, from the strongest screen to the strongest processor to lead friends to follow the battery technology, eggs to pick the bones you can not pick out what it is lacking, and based on these Xiaomi traditional advantages over the years, Xiaomi this time and high-intensity to strengthen the phone on the photo. This is a hard strength display that cannot be returned after seeing and using.

If the triple camera lens of Xiaomi 11 Pro is a routine upgrade of Xiaomi 11 standard version, then the triple camera lens of Xiaomi 11 Ultra has been done after its release to look around to find the rival situation, it is really like the netizen said the same thing: strong is not like a phone.
