Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra with World’s Largest Camera Bump: Yay or Nay?

Xiaomi Corporation, a Chinese multinational electronics company showcased its latest and greatest creation for 2021 with the ultimate Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra just about a month ago. Undoubtedly, the flagship from the firm comes as a deserved one with its improved specifications and features. Xiaomi upped its game by accumulating every feature that is currently in a top tier smartphone and brought it in a better version.

So, what are the bells and whistles Xiaomi has worked on with its latest offering? Let’s just get to it.



The overall design of the Mi 11 Ultra does invest in a premium look to it. The main attraction, however, is the gigantic camera bump on the rear that also manages to fit in a screen which we will surely come back to later. Unlike other smartphones of Mi with a glass back, this one in particular uses a ceramic material which means the density of the ceramic will lead to make it feel a bit heavier (approx weight 234 g) than other smartphones in the league—you might want to be a bit careful about dropping the phone on your face while scrolling through tik tok. The ceramic back will leave you with a lot of cleaning work—if you are not a fan of covers for smartphones—as it welcomes fingerprints in abundance.

The screen comes as a quad-curved design possibly to deliver seamless experience in the gestures and it has an under-display fingerprint scanner. All in All, design wise people might find themselves in a dilemma due to the massive camera bump whether they are ready for the huge change Xiaomi has introduced. But, on the plus side it does avoid the rocking whilst on the flat or flat-ish floor.

Additionally, the dimension of the phone measures 164.3 x 74.6 x 8.4mm and comes as an IP68 dust and water-resistant. The colour options available are Cosmic White and Cosmic Black.


For display, the Mi 11 Ultra proudly uses a 6.81-inch AMOLED display with a WQHD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and level-best peak brightness of 1700 nits—making it the best even during the brightest days. For protection of the screen, this phone comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. These features really stand well for the ‘Ultra’ tag in its name.


As per the performance is concerned, Xiaomi has really made an effort to make the phone stand out and hold the true flagship tag. Meaning, the Mi 11 Ultra uses Snapdragon 888 chipset which is a flagship offering by Qualcomm and based on Samsung’s 5nm process. Furthermore, it is paired with 12 GB of RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage that should avoid lagging for any kinds of apps. The chipset comes with an octa-core processor with a Kyro 680 core clocked at 2.84 GHz, three Kyro 680 cores clocked at 2.42GHz, and other four Kyro 680 cores clocked at 1.80 GHz. The operating system used is Android 11, MIUI 12.5.


Now, the most intriguing features of this phone must be the massive camera on the back. This particular block covers almost ¼ of the space at the rear and is considered to be the world’s largest smartphone camera. The world’s largest tag does not end here; the camera space houses the world’s largest primary sensor i.e. 50 MP with f/2.0 aperture, world’s widest ultrawide sensor i.e. 48 MP with f/2.2 aperture, and the biggest 120x zoom i.e. 48 MP with f/4.1 aperture. What’s even more fascinating is the tiny screen on the back—basically the screen from the Mi band 5. Just to be clear, we wouldn’t state it’s clear or super sharp but it looks cool so, why not? The secondary screen shows time, battery status, and notification light if unopened. Other minior customization can be performed such as pre-loaded icon image, quotes, or customized image. The main essential feature of the secondary screen must be the use of the massive rear cameras for selfies.


Finally, the battery of the phone comes as a 5000mAh battery pack which can be paired with 67W of fast charging adapter and 67W of fast wireless charger. Now, with such high-definition features and specs, it should drain the battery real fast. However, the fast charging option does even out the issue as it can charge to 100% in less than 40 minutes.

All in all, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra does a pretty good job to actually stand out in the crowd and for its clear competitor Samsung S21 Ultra, it does come as a more advanced, eye-catchy, or an interesting option. A lot of people might get a little sketchy about the camera bump but we don’t think it would be a drawback because at the end of the it does look really cool with a mini secondary screen on the back.
