The Xiaomi 11T Pro is one of the best affordable flagships launched last year and, while it’s a bit late to the Indian market, it should still be a great buy for several reasons. The device features a fantastic 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz peak refresh rate, up to 480Hz touch sampling rate, 1000nits of peak brightness, 10-bit color, HDR10+ support, and Dolby Vision certification.
As mentioned earlier, the Xiaomi 11T Pro packs Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 888 chip, up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 256GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage. Therefore, it offers impressive performance, no matter what you throw at it. As Adam mentioned in his review of the Xiaomi 11T Pro, the device can easily handle everything from emulation to games without any issues.
In the camera department, the Xiaomi 11T Pro features a 108MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 5MP macro camera on the back. Over on the front, it has a single 16MP selfie shooter. Other noteworthy features include a dual speaker setup tuned by Harman Kardon, 5G support, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and a USB Type-C port.
Rounding off the hardware is a 5,000mAh battery, which supports 120W wired fast charging with the included charger. In our testing, we found that the 120W fast charger can charge the 5,000mAh battery from 1% to 71% in just 10 minutes. So, even if you’re a heavy user, you shouldn’t face any battery woes with the device.
On the software front, the Xiaomi 11T Pro runs MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11 out of the box. At the moment, Xiaomi has not shared the MIUI 13/Android 12 release timeline for the device. However, the company has promised three years of OS upgrades and four years of security updates for the device.
