It’s been a busy and fruitful couple of months for Xiaomi, as the company has overtaken the likes of Samsung to become the top smartphone maker in the world. Just last week, we saw the introduction of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 with its hidden under-display selfie camera and phenomenal specs. But a new leak points to yet another flagship offering making its way to certain markets as soon as next month.
The Xiaomi Mi 11T Pro was leaked through YouTube Channel The Pixel (via XDA Developers), giving us an idea of what we can expect. According to this leak, the Mi 11T Pro will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC, while sporting an enormous 5,000mAh battery equipped with 120W fast charging speeds. The device is also said to feature an OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which has seemingly become Xiaomi’s go-to for its flagship devices.
As for pricing, it seems that the Mi 11T Pro will come in between 13 and 15 million Vietnamese dong (~$570-$657). If this is true, then it’s a little bit of a price bump when compared to the Mi 10T Pro, but the change from LCD to OLED for the display is enough of a reason by itself to warrant the higher price.

Alongside this powerhouse, Xiaomi is also likely to unveil a standard Mi 11T which will be powered by a MediaTek chipset. This will also offer 5G connectivity but will be more moderately priced.
According to GizmoChina, Xiaomi will be hosting an event on September 23, where the entire Mi 11T series will make its collective debut. This would come just about one year after the Mi 10T series was announced, so it’s good to see Xiaomi sticking to a regular schedule despite the ongoing global chip shortage. In addition to potentially making use of a MediaTek processor, the standard Mi 11T could also offer a trio of 64MP rear cameras.
Xiaomi has yet to confirm anything in regards to a potential Mi 11T launch, nor has it started to tease any upcoming events. But if we’ve learned anything from the company this year, it’s that we could begin seeing teasers in the next couple of weeks.
