At the end of March, Xiaomi held a big presentation where the Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Lite and Mi Mix Fold smartphones debuted. It turns out that not all cards were revealed at the event, and new details about the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra were shared by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun.
What does the Mi Band 5 have to do with this?
The main feature of Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is an additional screen next to the main camera. It displays incoming calls and notifications, time, battery level, and can also be used to take selfies on the main camera.
According to the head of the company, this screen is borrowed from last year’s Mi Band 5 fitness tracker (Mi Smart Band 5 in the international market). And indeed, this is the same 1.1-inch AMOLED screen as the bracelet. Recall that the new Mi Band 6 screen size has increased to 1.56 inches.
Thus, the display is not custom-made, which means that it will help to reduce the production cost of Mi 11 Ultra.
