With Mi Note 10, Xiaomi blessed the world with the first smartphone with a 108MP camera last year. It was a significant device as it determined the future of Xiaomi handsets. From the looks of it, the upcoming Mi 11 is likely to get the same camera technology. Xiaomi is satisfied with the performance levels of this camera sensor and the use of multiple-camera smartphones. Interestingly, while Xiaomi thrived, Samsung didn’t achieve the same level of performance in its first attempt at a 108MP camera.
Tipster leaks the future of Xiaomi devices with 108MP cameras
The latest addition to the category of Xiaomi smartphones with a 108MP camera was the Redmi Note 9 Pro. However, the reliable tipster Digital Chat Station claims that there will be at least two Redmi and two Xiaomi devices with 108MP cameras that will be launched in 2021.
Moreover, he also hinted that at least one of them is likely to feature the latest Snapdragon 888 SoC. While there was no mention of the exact names of the devices, it only makes sense to say one of them will likely be the Mi 11. Though it is only logical for the Mi 11 Pro to feature a 108MP, there is no confirmation as of now. The two Redmi devices might be Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro. Moreover, the latter is likely to feature the Snapdragon 888 SoC. While these claims are based on assumptions, they do make a lot of sense.
Xiaomi’s plans for the upcoming smartphones
Xiaomi has already announced that Mi 11 is set to become Xiaomi’s first smartphone to feature the Snapdragon 888 SoC. It is confirmed that the Mi 11 will be launched in January of 2021. Moreover, Redmi’s General Manager Lu Weibing also confirmed that the upcoming flagship series will come with the Snapdragon 888 SoC. This likely means that the upcoming Redmi K40 series will feature the Snapdragon 888 SoC. The flagship version could feature an impressive Snapdragon 888, a 108MP camera, and a bezel-less display, making it one of the most exciting devices that will hit the market soon.

The listing shows the case is available for 16.80 yuan ($2.6). It is basically similar to the previously listed protective cover. The Mi and Mi 11 Pro are very different in terms of the shape of their rear camera modules.
The Mi 11 will feature a three rear-camera setup while adopting a square layout. On the other hand, the Mi 11 Pro will house a quad-camera setup with a matrix layout.
