The first half of the Xiaomi conference: 4999 Android machine king, 5999 Android light is here!
After watching the ZhaGuo version of "Justice League" last week, I heard that Xiaomi's spring conference will be held for nearly 4 hours, and there is no turmoil in my heart.
But Zhijian, who was going to watch the press conference, was different. Before he left, he was thinking about whether to bring a pack of diapers.
Fortunately, the duration of the press conference tonight is controlled at two hours, divided into two sessions, and the second half will be opened at the same time tomorrow. Below, we will try to disassemble the first episode of this Xiaomi "Spring Festival Gala" so that you can easily understand the key points and highlights of the new products.
In a nutshell, there are 3 mobile phones, 1 smart bracelet, 1 router, and some accessories among the products unveiled tonight. Let's first look at the category that has the most attention-mobile phones.
Mi 11 Pro: the all-around flagship is also coming
Use a few keywords to refine the improvement of Mi 11 Pro to Mi 11, which can be "craftsmanship", "photograph", "screen", "endurance" and "heat dissipation".
Let's look at "craft" first. Mi 11 Pro is not much different from Mi 11 in appearance. The main difference lies in the minor changes in the design of the rear camera module and the new color scheme.
Mi 11 Pro comes in three colors: Pine Wind Green, Dream Purple and Dream Black. Among them, Dream Purple is made of AG material, which is not easy to touch fingerprints, which can be described as the first choice for obsessive-compulsive disorder.
The aforementioned changes are relatively easy to detect, and the hidden upgrade lies in the waterproof and dustproof technology. Thanks to the high permeability pressure relief valve, the Mi 11 Pro supports IP68 waterproof and dustproof, and is certified by South Germany, which can be immersed in 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes.
Then look at "Photography". As a "big cup", Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro puts the most important upgrade point on the camera ability.
The main camera first launched a 50-megapixel Samsung GN2 sensor. The size of the photosensitive element has reached 1/1.12 inches, which is the largest sensor currently mounted on a smartphone.
In addition, this main camera also supports dual native ISO Fusion technology and night owl algorithm. The former simply means that the dynamic range of the photo can be greater and the HDR performance is better. The latter can learn through AI to improve the night scene shooting experience and enhance the picture quality of dark scenes.
In the rear camera of the Mi 11, there is a 5 megapixel telephoto macro lens, which is suspected of making up the number. This time Xiaomi 11 Pro removed it and replaced it with an 8-megapixel periscope telephoto lens that supports OIS optical image stabilization, default 5x optical zoom, and up to 50x digital zoom.
As for the ultra-wide-angle lens and the front lens, the Mi 11 Pro adopts the Mi 11 configuration.
Let's look at the "screen" again. The 2K+120Hz AMOLED screen that Xiaomi Mi 11 carries is good enough. The Mi 11 Pro goes a step further with its original features, with the peak brightness reaching 1700nit. But more importantly, Mi 11 Pro supports Dolby Vision, which is also the first domestic mobile phone to support Dolby Vision certification.
In the optimization of this screen, Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro has a built-in brand new AI master image quality engine, which can provide super-resolution AI enhancement, intelligent HDR image quality enhancement, intelligent scene optimization, dynamic picture compensation and other functions or features.
Here is the fourth key word: "battery life". Mi 11 Pro is equipped with a "second-generation" nano-silicon-oxygen technology negative cell, which has the advantage of high energy density. Therefore, in the case of similar body size, the battery capacity of Xiaomi 11 Pro has been increased to 5000mAh.
In terms of charging speed, Mi 11 Pro uses "dual 67W fast charging". The power of limited and wireless charging is the same, and both can fully charge a 5000mAh battery in about 36 minutes.
In terms of performance, it is consistent with Xiaomi Mi 11, both of which are Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 + full blood version of LPDDR5 memory + UFS3.1. The upgrade is in heat dissipation.
The heat dissipation system of the Mi 11 Pro is called the "solid-liquid-gas-phase heat dissipation system", which sounds particularly bluffing. To put it simply, in the traditional heat dissipation scheme, the thermal gel in the SoC area is upgraded to a phase change thermal pad to wrap the SoC to make the heat dissipation more efficient. This is expected to make the performance of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 more stable.
Under the fierce operation of Xiaomi, Xiaomi 11 Pro broke the 200g mark. However, it is only 12 grams heavier than Xiaomi 11, which is 208 grams. The thickness has increased by about 0.5mm to 8.53mm, and the length and width specifications remain unchanged.
▲ Comparison of parameters between Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro
It's strong, but it's also heavy. But the more "heavyweight" players are still behind.
Mi 11 Ultra: "Android Light" with full configuration
"Becoming the Android King" is a promise made by Lei Jun to fans during the warm-up phase of Xiaomi's "Super Big Cup". But at the press conference, Xiaomi 11 Ultra is more than just the Android machine king, it also shouted the slogan of "Android Light".
Looking at the entire press conference, Xiaomi 11 Ultra, which is positioned as a super big cup, is not sure whether it is the light of Android, but it is 100% solid "stacking king". This range can even be larger than the Xiaomi brand and expand to the entire Smartphone field.
I probably counted it. Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has about 5 world premieres. There is enough material in the screen, appearance, heat dissipation, camera, battery, etc., and it almost meets all the needs of people for the definition of flagship.
There are so many "materials" piled on the super big cup flagship. The overall measurement of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is actually not much different from that of the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro. The 8.38mm thickness is between the Mi 11 glass version (8.06mm) and the plain leather version. (8.56mm), the weight has reached 234g, giving people a particularly "thick" feeling.
The weight of 234g is actually added some "materials" to the specifications and design. The back panel of the Xiaomi 11 Ultra is made of ceramic material. After the Mi 6, ceramics once again appeared on the Xiaomi digital flagship.
Mi 11 Ultra comes in three colors: ceramic black, ceramic white, and special edition with marble pattern. The special edition with marble pattern is more eye-catching and the craftsmanship is more complicated. In addition, the Mi 11 Ultra also supports IP68 dust and water resistance, that is, it can be immersed for 30 minutes at a depth of 1.5m.
The specifications start with the most ruthless camera module of the Mi 11 Ultra. The camera module of the Mi 11 Ultra can actually be divided into two parts: the camera and the secondary screen.
For the camera part, the "three main camera" strategy, ultra-wide-angle 48-megapixel IMX586 sensor, the main camera first launched the 100-megapixel Samsung GN2 sensor, and the ultra-telephoto or the 48-megapixel IMX586 sensor. With three lenses, it can cover the focal length of 12mm~120mm, all-round.
The IMX586 sensor was once the main camera of Xiaomi Mi 9, and it was also the main camera of the Android camp at that time. The quality is obvious to all. The main camera GN2 is a 100-megapixel "big bottom" sensor deployed by Xiaomi and Samsung long ago. It has a size of 1/1.12 inches, which is close to 1 inch. The daily pixel is four in one, and the size of a single pixel can reach 2.8μm. , In theory, make photos have better purity.
On the main GN2 lens, the Mi 11 Ultra has the same configuration as the Mi 10 Extreme Commemorative Edition. Both are 8P lenses with an aperture of f/1.95 and support OIS anti-shake. In addition, the Mi 11 Ultra main camera uses a full-pixel omnidirectional eight-core focusing function. Compared with the traditional full-pixel dual-core focusing, it increases the focus on multi-directional texture and improves the focusing performance in low light.
These three main cameras all support 8K video and HDR10+ video shooting. At the same time, the screens of Snapdragon 888 and Xiaomi 11 Ultra also support HDR10+ video processing and presentation. Therefore, Xiaomi 11 Ultra supports full-link HDR10+.
The other part of the camera module is the somewhat controversial "secondary screen", which Xiaomi officially calls the "Lingo Window". It has about 4 functions. Support custom screen display, support information notifications (requires a mobile phone), support Selfie assistance, and extreme power saving mode (only the secondary screen is used, which is a fun feature).
The camera module with two functional areas occupies one-third of the back area of the Mi 11 Ultra, and it has a strong sense of presence. The three main cameras also have considerable strength in theory. As for the "secondary screen", there is no "killer" function for the time being, but it appears in the camera module and is not obtrusive. It even balances the center of gravity of the "three main cameras" in the visual design, and does not give Design deductions.
Speaking of the most eye-catching camera module of the complete machine, let's take a look at other aspects of the Xiaomi 11 Ultra.
In terms of performance configuration, Tongxiaolong 888 processor, supplemented by a full-blood version of LPDDR5 3200MHz and UFS 3.1 flash memory, is consistent with Xiaomi 11 Pro. In terms of heat dissipation, a solid-liquid-gas three-state three-dimensional heat dissipation system is also used. Games such as "Yuanshen" that are too performance-intensive should be able to slow down.
In terms of screen specifications, battery capacity, and charging power, the Mi 11 Ultra is consistent with the Mi 11 Pro, so I won’t go into details here.
In addition to the screen, appearance (material), heat dissipation, camera, battery, and charging, Mi 11 Ultra also has some details, such as support for WiFi 6 enhanced version, multi-function NFC, infrared, Harman Kardon speakers, X axis These features such as sex motors are all equipped.
I want to finish talking about the new features of Xiaomi 11 Ultra in one go. It's no different from a "guankou" in the cross talk world. It's too much. Almost all the "black technology" produced by the bottom of the Xiaomi press box was taken out and piled on the Xiaomi 11 Ultra. Regardless of whether it is the most perfect mobile phone in the industry, it is definitely the most perfect "Android King" in Xiaomi's mind at this stage.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition, lightness is justice?
For some consumers, nouns such as full-blooded version of LPDDR5 and ultra-outsole sensor are all floating clouds. Lightness and thinness are the "right direction" of mobile phones. They are unwilling to sacrifice feel in exchange for excess performance. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition is the "sweet potato" of this group.
With a thickness of 6.81mm and a weight of 159 grams, it is very friendly to one-handed operation. Comparing it with Mi 11, in addition to being lighter and thinner, there are many changes to be found.
In terms of appearance, Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition uses a straight screen design. Double-sided 2.5D glass, all back shells are AG technology, providing a variety of colors.
The design language of the rear camera module is the same as that of Mi 11, but the specifications of the main camera and ultra-wide-angle have shrunk to a certain extent:
- Main camera wide-angle lens 64 million pixels
- Ultra wide-angle lens 8 million pixels
- Telephoto macro lens 5 million pixels
In terms of screen, Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition uses AMOLED flexible material, 6.55 inches. The flexible material also brings a very narrow frame. The width of the frame and forehead is 1.88mm, and the chin is 2.75mm.
The resolution is 1080P, the refresh rate is up to 90Hz, and it supports HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision. In addition, the off-screen fingerprint scheme was cancelled and changed to side fingerprint recognition.
In terms of performance, Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition first released Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G, which is the same 5nm process as Snapdragon 888, and the same 1+3+4 architecture. AnTuTu's running score is about 567,000 points. Compared with Snapdragon 888, the main shortcoming of the former should be the bandwidth of the memory.
Although the main feature is thin and light, the Mi 11 Youth Edition still supports stereo dual speakers, the battery capacity has reached 4250mAh, and it supports 33W wired fast charging.
Mi Band "Graduation"
Mi 6 is nicknamed the "nail house" of the mobile phone industry, and its stable performance and experience make it difficult to find the power to change the phone.
And the Mi Band 6 released tonight is called the "graduation model" in the smart band by Xiaomi. Compared with the previous generation products, it has been upgraded in all aspects, and it is likely to become a "nail house" in the smart band world.
Compared with previous generation products, the main highlights of Mi Band 6 are as follows:
- Upgraded to a full screen, 1.56 inches, 50% increase in display area compared to the previous generation
- Screen resolution up to 326PPI, retina level
- Fully compatible with iPhone and Android phones
- Cancel the touch button and upgrade to gesture interaction
- Added blood oxygen detection function
- Upgraded sleep monitoring, which can judge the breathing quality during sleep and optimize the nap mode

- Added 19 sport modes
- Added 6 kinds of sports automatic recognition
- 4 new color-matched wristbands
- Add new super IPs to the dial: SpongeBob SquarePants, Under One, Zhenhun Street, Qin Shimingyue, etc.
Mi Band 6 is divided into a standard version and an NFC version. The NFC version supports full-featured NFC, including UnionPay QuickPass, subway bus, access control, and Xiaomi smart door locks.
In terms of battery life, according to the official statement, the standard version can reach 14 days in a typical usage mode, and the NFC version is 12 days. In addition, Mi Band 6 continues the previous generation of non-disassembly magnetic charging, charging is simple and easy.
Xiaomi gaming-grade router is here, and there are some new accessories
Along with Xiaomi 11 Pro and Xiaomi 11 Ultra, there is also a flagship wireless router AX9000. The positioning is a little different from the previous AX6000. AX9000 is more like a new product line. It is a tri-band gaming flagship router.
In appearance, it adopts the design style of Star Fortress, and also has custom lighting effects for e-sports, and the atmosphere of e-sports is full.
AX9000 has a 5GHz gaming frequency band, a 5GHz audio-visual entertainment frequency band, and a 2.4GHz frequency band (including AIoT antenna). 2.4G 1148Mbps + 5G 2402Mbps + 5G 4804Mbps + AIoT 583Mbps, the total rate is approximately equal to 9000Mbps. Among them, the newly added e-sports frequency band allows e-sports equipment to enjoy bandwidth exclusively without interference from other equipment. Same as AX6000, it also supports 4×4 160MHz and 4K QAM.
AX9000 has 12 high-gain antennas, each antenna group contains 2.4GHz, 5.2GHz and 5.8GHz three, which can make the signal coverage wider. AX9000 also supports Mesh hybrid networking with other models of Mi WiFi 6 routers.
In addition to mobile phones, bracelets and routers, Xiaomi also brought some mobile phone accessories.
For example, the Xiaomi wireless charging kit contains an 80W wireless charging stand and a 120W wired charger, priced at 499 yuan. However, when you purchase Mi 11 Pro, you can purchase this charging kit for an additional 199 yuan. Lei Jun specifically emphasized that the number is limited, first come first served.
Another example is the Xiaomi multi-coil wireless fast charging board, which contains 19 charging coils. The device can be charged at any position on the charging board, and it supports charging three devices at the same time. Each device can enjoy 20W fast charging. The price is 599 yuan.
Xiaomi "Spring Festival Gala", to be continued
The first half of Xiaomi’s "Spring Festival Gala" and the new products that debuted almost met all the needs of Xiaomi fans, for high-end, flagship, mobile phone, technology, black technology, and so on.
▲ The price of new products released tonight
Xiaomi 11 Pro and Xiaomi 11 Ultra have almost taken out the technology at the bottom of the box by Xiaomi, with the goal of becoming the emperor of Android and the light of Android. The information we obtained from the press conference, and in theory, this name is not an exaggeration, but in fact, whether the hand is "just the name" and how the "effect" is, you may as well take a look at our evaluation video for the first time tomorrow. Maybe then there will be a clear answer.
As for Xiaomi's vision for the next ten years, and the new MIX machine that we will never forget, it may not be announced until tomorrow. I hope that the surprise level of the new products in the second half of the conference will not be less than that of today's Android Phone King and Android Light.
