When we all expected at the end of last year that Xiaomi will present the Xiaomi Mi 11 accompanied by the Pro model, we were left without knowing this second model. That is why the rumor mill around the brand now continues to delve into shaping the best of the manufacturer’s range caps for 2021.
The camera seems to be the aspect in which the new phone will change the most, but to know how, we must first review what the Xiaomi Mi 11’s photographic section offers.
The current top of the range of the Chinese firm, which it announces has not even been launched outside of China, has a triple rear camera configuration where we come across a 108MP main sensor with OIS, a 13MP ultra-wide angle and a third 5MP sensor that performs macro functions. What do we miss here?
Obviously, what is missing in a top of the range of these characteristics is the telephoto lens, and this would be the key to the future Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro .
120x zoom on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro
The latest information reveals that the Mi 11 Pro may have an extra sensor, a telephoto lens with support for 120x zoom in its rear camera settings. This is stated by the reputed leakster Digital Chat Station on Weibo.
The leaker does not mention the name of the phone, but it is logical to think that it is the Mi 11 Pro , since there is no other top of the range scheduled in the Xiaomi launch calendar, for now. Also remember that, earlier this month, a leaked poster suggested that the phone could come with a quad rear camera setup that would include a telephoto lens in periscope format with the zoom capability now referenced.
This quad rear camera of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro can include a 50 megapixel primary sensor that could actually be a 200 megapixel sensor thanks to the 4: 1 pixel binning system, a 48 ultra wide angle sensor and a 48 megapixel telephoto lens that would be the one that would offer this great level of zoom. The fourth sensor could be the same macro as the Mi 11 or a ToF sensor.
At the moment there is no date for the presentation of the expected premium Xiaomi smartphone but it has been speculated, on occasion, that the month of February could be the one chosen by the brand to publicize this phone.
