Xiaomi Mi 11X Pro hands-on review

Introduction

The Mi 11X Pro is a more advanced version of the Mi 11X, which we checked out earlier this week. Although it is basically the same device, the Pro version replaces the chipset and the main rear camera with much better versions. Other than that, the two phones are identical – you can see how their specifications compare directly.

So what do we get right here? Well, the Snapdragon 870 chipset on the Mi 11X has been replaced with the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset. Meanwhile, the largest wide camera on the back, which was a 48-megapixel Sony IMX582 on the Mi 11X, is now a stonking 108-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HM2.

The rest of the phone is actually identical to its non-professional siblings. This means the same 6.67-inch, 1080p 120Hz AMOLED screen, 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, 5-megapixel macro camera, 20-megapixel front camera, 4520mAh battery and 33W fast charging. You can see the more detailed overview below.

As some of you may have guessed, this is pretty much the same phone as the Redmi K40 Pro +. As with the vanilla Mi 11X, Xiaomi has just renamed an existing device to another market, which in this case is India.

Considering that we have not looked at the Redmi K40 Pro +, we still thought it would be interesting to check out the Mi 11X Pro. However, we are not reviewing this device as we have already largely covered most of this device with our Mi 11X article.

Instead, for this practical review, we will largely focus on the camera, as it is the only thing that is relatively new here.

Unboxing

The Mi 11X Pro comes in some pretty standard packaging in India. Our retail box had the phone, a 33W quick charger, a USB 2.0 cable and a clear silicone case.
