Rough-finished design and an AMOLED screen that’s brighter than ever

Xiaomi has outlined the design of the Mi 11 with subtle changes that allow us to continue to identify the identity of the brand, but with some improvements that on a day-to-day basis may suit it very well. On the front we have a body where the screen occupies practically everything and a hole in the screen in the upper central area. No sign of the fingerprint reader, which is added under the screen.

The rear part has the camera module in a similar arrangement to the previous one, but more elongated. It stands out slightly because the Xiaomi 12 is a considerably thin and light mobile with 180 grams of weight.

Xiaomi Side Design

This year Xiaomi has wanted to influence the design and will offer the Xiaomi 12 in multiple pastel tones, with a rough touch that, in the absence of testing it, will predictably offer a better hand feeling than glass, which is much more slippery.

The chosen panel is a 6.28-inch AMOLED with FullHD + resolution, a 20: 9 format and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. But where it has improved the most is in its image quality. The Xiaomi 12 offers compatibility with HDR10 + and Dolby Vision and the 12-bit panel is capable of up to 1,100 nits of maximum brightness.

Amoled Xiaomi 12

The device is protected with Gorilla Glass Victus and at the sound level, the responsibility lies with some stereo speakers signed by Harman Kardon.
