Xiaomi 11T Pro: The Best Value Flagship Phone of 2021

Xiaomi 11T Pro: The Best Value Flagship Phone of 2021

Well, it’s no news that Xiaomi has announced the new Xiaomi 11T pro along with the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5g NE and Xiaomi 11T in the Xiaomi 11T series which is expected to be released sometime around September 29 and October 1st. The Xiaomi 11T PRO will take its place among the other newly released smartphones like the iPhone 13 pro max with new, improved, and amazing features. 

The Xiaomi 11T pro is noted as the best among the Xiaomi series, with good specs and still pocket-friendly compared to the Xiaomi MI 11 series. The Xiaomi 11T pro is priced at £599( $702 )for the 8GB RAM +128GB Storage, £649( $761 ) for the 8GB RAM + 256 Storage, and £749( $878 ) for the 12GB RAM + 256GB Storage. 

Now let's get to the specs.

The Xiaomi 11T pro comes with a 6.67 inch 120 Hz AMOLED, Dolby Vision screen, 108MP pro-grade camera, a 120W Xiaomi Hypercharge, and Qualcomm SM8350 and Snapdragon 888 chipsets. 


The Xiaomi 11T pro’s biggest feature is the fast charging using a whooping 120W in box charger which charges faster than the MI 11 as well as the Samsung Galaxy S21. And it is capable of charging its 5000mah battery to 100% (yes 100%) in just 17 minutes. This eliminates the usual wait time most phones have when the battery is low, all you need to do is just plug it for a few minutes and you’re good to go. This makes it one of the fastest charging phones in the world.

Plus its 5000mah battery has an estimated endurance of 92hrs (wow) less charging time more usage time, who doesn’t like that. 


The Xiaomi 11T pro has a 6.67-inch AMOLED, Dolby Vision Screen protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. This is a little smaller than the 6.81-inch display on the Xiaomi MI 11 and the 6.7-inch display on the iPhone 13 pro max. It also has a resolution of 2400 x 1080. The Xiaomi 11T pro has an adaptive 120 Hz refresh rate which means it refreshes 120 times a second, ensuring smooth and fast interaction with the phone's UI (User interface) and it can automatically switch between the standard 60Hz and 120Hz depending on the type of content displayed, which also helps with battery optimization. You can also expect a smooth and fast transition while gaming and switching between apps with fast touch response of up to 480 Hz. The color and brightness are great and it supports up to 1 billion colors. 

The Xiaomi 11T pro can be used in the brightest of conditions with peak brightness at 1000 nits.


The Xiaomi 11T pro has the snapdragon 888 flagship chipset like the Xiaomi MI 11 which is great for gaming and comes with either 8/12GB LPDDR5 RAM and you can also choose either 128/256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Due to the snapdragon 888 flagship chipset, you can expect top performance with 25% to 35% better processing and graphics card performance as well, and it uses a vapor chamber cooling tech.


Xiaomi 11T Pro Sample

The Xiaomi 11T pro has a 108mp main camera that shoots 12mp photos. It also has an 8mp ultra-wide, a 5mp telemacro, and a 16mp selfie camera, so you can expect great-looking and sharp photos as well. The phone can also record up to 8k at 30fps, 4K at 60fps, and boasts of giving you a cinematic experience/ “Cinemagic” experience through studio-grade videography.


It also sports a fingerprint sensor on the power switch which is incredibly responsive (Almost too sensitive). It has a USB-C port but no 3.5mm headphone jack. Plus it has a plastic back although it gets smudged easily when holding or using the device for any length of time and comes in blue, gray, or white.

 It also has a more improved camera bump compared to the MI 10T PRO. Plus dedicated dual speakers, sound by Harmon Kardon. 

Although the Xiaomi 11T pro is an amazing phone with top specs for the price, it did have to relinquish a few features for that to be possible. For example:-

It has an IP53 rating which means it is dust and splash resistance but no IP68 rating. That means it can't handle underwater submersion. 

Most high-end phones tend to have an IP68 rating making them waterproof. Also, it doesn’t have wireless charging as well as a telephoto camera which lets your phone capture sharp images of faraway subjects through far-reaching optical zooms, mainly seen in most high-end phones. 

Regardless the Xiaomi 11T pro still has a great camera setup.

The Xiaomi 11T pro is a great all-rounder, the AMOLED screen is fantastic, the chipset is a flagship snapdragon 888 which boasts of excellent performance, oh and don’t forget the 120W hypercharge which lets you charge your phone in minutes and more. 

It has amazing features, especially for its price. The Xiaomi 11T pro is a great phone to have and should be the best value flagship phone of 2021 in my opinion. So what do you think? Is the Xiaomi 11T pro is a must-have smartphone? Let us know in the comments.
