As per a video posted by Vietnamese YouTube channel The Pixel last week, the Xiaomi 11T Pro will arrive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and a 120Hz AMOLED display. Keeping the lights on will be a 5,000mAh battery with support for identical 120W fast charging as the Mi 10 Ultra and Mi Mix 4.
Alongside the 11T Pro, Xiaomi is also expected to announce the vanilla 11T with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset and a 120Hz OLED display. The phone is also said to feature a triple-camera setup with a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a telemacro sensor with 3x zoom.
Last year's Mi 10T series phones proved to be quite popular with consumers in markets such as India and Europe, thanks to their impressive hardware and aggressive pricing. While it remains to be seen if the 11T series phones will be as affordable as their predecessors, you can expect them to offer better value than the Mi 11 series.
