Back in December 2020, Xiaomi announced its Mi 11 series in China, its own country. Now, after two months, the Chinese smartphone maker has now brought the lineup to the global market. The Mi 11 global launch did not come as a surprise as the previous report already confirmed the February 8 launch timeline.
The global variant of Xiaomi Mi 11 offers the same design and aesthetics with few changes in the internals. Of course, we’re going to talk about these few minor yet worth discussing changes.
The global version of Xiaomi Mi 11 does not come with the 12GB RAM variant paired with 256GB built-in storage. Furthermore, the brand decided to go with a 55W charger instead of the 65W one. Fortunately, the rest of the internal remains the same. With 12GB RAM variant discard for the global market, we’re left with two storage configurations namely 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB.
