After the successful announcement in China, Xiaomi Mi 11 is ready to enter the world market — it will happen on February 8. However, there are no official announcements about the Mi 11 Pro (or Mi 11 Lite, for that matter) yet. But this does not mean that only the smartphone will be released, as we are waiting for the release of the MIUI 12.5 global firmware.
Xiaomi will announce the exact information about the international release of the Mi 11 at an event on February 8, which will begin at 9 am Moscow time. The exact price will be announced in the West, but the phone is expected to cost around 800 euros, which equates to 73,759 rubles at the current exchange rate.
As the version number suggests, MIUI 12.5 is a fairly simple update compared to version 12.0. It is still based on Android 11, but has some interesting innovations. For example, it will allow you to hide the icons of installed applications that you do not use to keep your desktop clean.
A more interesting addition is MIUI+, which allows you to run applications from your phone on a Windows computer (including running several applications simultaneously). You will also receive messages from your phone.
While the Mi 11 comes with MIUI 12.5 out of the box, 27 Xiaomi and Redmi phones are waiting for the update. The first beta versions are already released, but the final builds will be released in the next few months.
