There are three colors available for this device including Black, Green & Purple that has a frosted finish.

It also has an HDR10+certification. Xiaomi says it has also implemented an antibacterial quad-curved screen protector, so you don’t need to get one. You also receive an antibacterial case in the box.

The Snapdragon 888 chipset is powering the Mi 11 Pro and it is utilized up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 flash storage. There is a phase-changing liquid cooling system that helps to keep the device & the SoC cool.

The camera department is one of the major upgrades over the vanilla Mi 11. For the Pro’s primary rear camera, Xiaomi has utilized the 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor with a 1/1.12″ sensor size, the largest camera sensor in a smartphone to date. The 50MP Samsung GN2 image sensor comes with 61 degrees field of view with a very sharp focus thanks to dToF technology that features a 64 point laser array focus system.
