Kicking off year 2021 is the Xiaomi Mi 11, a smartphone that was unveiled in a lunch event that took place in China in the last days of year 2020.

That’s for launch, the official release happened in January, 2021 so buying one is probably what you should be thinking about now in Nigeria but wait a minute…

I haven’t told you what is obtainable here.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 is a standard edition in the Mi 11 series but honestly it is starting to feel like a “pro” variant. At an budget price, you get a standard 2K 120Hz AMOLED display with an impressive performance, all thanks to snapdragon 888 cpu.

Design & Display

The design of the Xiaomi Mi 11 is no doubt impressive, it is attention grabbing even at first sight in Nigeria. For the most part, it comes in two variants: AG matte and Vegan leather.

While the AG matte has a metal and glass sandwich design, the Vegan leather like her name has a leather finish behind. Both have good feelings of luxury in the hand.

On the display is a 6.81inch 2K AMOLED screen that renders pretty awesome even at 120Hz refresh rate is game changing. What 2K!!! This is just too good to be true in Nigeria.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 really pride herself heavily on display which is not surprising. It also received a 194grams weight which is a good number for the premium design it features.

Camera & Battery

At the back is a triple camera system that is made up of a 108MP main, 13MP ultra-wide and a 5MP macro lens. In front you get a 20MP punch-hole selfie camera.

The battery is pretty decent, a 4600mAh battery is in-house here with 55W wired charging with support for high speed 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging. We these, we are settled in Nigeria.

  1. Hi, please can I get Xiaomi Mi 11 in Osun state? I have searched for it all around in top phone hubs but I cannot find one… If yes please share the contact phone number and address. thank you

        1. From our findings, Xiaomi is still rolling out the Mi 11, I strongly advise you to be a little calm. We would let you know when more units are available in Nigeria via email 😊

          1. Okay so does that mean it’s not available anywhere in Nigeria at the moment? If there is a particular place I can get it let me know… I don’t mind the distance I can go get it. Not necessarily within Osun
