Yesterday Xiaomi announced its latest phones, the Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro.
They both look amazing, the Xiaomi 11T Pro costs just £ 599 but includes the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset, 120Hz AMOLED display, 108 MP camera, 5000mAh battery, and it’s the first. phone to be launched in the west with a 120 W charge. This means that with the supplied charger you can go from flat to full in just 17 minutes.
Mediatek Dimensity 1200 AI vs Ultra – Mediatek 5G Open Resource Architecture
I’m in the process of writing my OnePlus Nord 2 review, so the Xiaomi 11T is what caught my eye for comparison. It is the second phone to be launched in the UK with one of the modified Mediatek Dimensity 1200 chipsets. While the Nord 2 has AI customization, Xiaomi added Ultra at the end of the chipset name.
Xiaomi hasn’t talked much about the Ultra portion of the chipset, but Mediatek provides manufacturers with an element of customization through their 5G open resource architecture.
Xiaomi claims the chipset goes up to 3.0 GHz, which the normal Mediatek Dimensity 1200 can do, but the name would imply some kind of performance improvement over the standard model. We’ll just have to wait and see if that makes a difference in the overall performance of the Mediatek Dimensity 1200. I don’t have a test sample coming up, so no testing from me is planned at this time.
Xiaomi 11T vs 11T Pro vs OnePlus Nord 2 price
The Xiaomi 11T is launching for £ 100 more than the Nord 2 at £ 499 from £ 399, so you have to factor that into my comparison. The OnePlus Nord 2 is now available on Amazon, we will have to wait a bit for the Xiaomi.
The Xiaomi 11T Pro still costs £ 100, so £ 599. While this is an amazing price, I’m not quite sure it’s worth it for the Snapdragon 888 (due to its battery requirements) and the 120W load (which I would love, but which I rarely use).
Xiaomi 11T vs OnePlus Nord 2 specifications
The Xiaomi is a bit bigger with a 6.67-inch 2400 × 1080 AMOLED display and it runs faster at 120Hz.
The OnePlus is a bit smaller, which many prefer, at 6.43-inch AMOLED running at 90Hz 2400 × 1080.
Both phones have a flat screen with a punch hole.
Oddly, Xiaomi doesn’t have the fingerprint scanner under the display, instead it sits on the power button.
Both phones have the same base memory and storage options with 8GB and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The Xiaomi 11T has the same specs as the Pro model, and it’s a bit rounder than the OnePlus, with:
- 108 MP, f / 1.8, 26mm (wide), 1 / 1.52 ″, 0.7µm, PDAF
- 8 MP, f / 2.2, 120˚ (ultra-wide), 1/4 ″, 1.12µm
- 5 MP, f / 2.4, 50mm (macro telephoto), 1 / 5.0 ″, 1.12µm, AF
- 16 MP, f / 2.5, (wide), 1 / 3.06 ″, 1.0 µm
The OnePlus Nord 2 has:
- 50 MP, f / 1.9, 24mm (wide), 1 / 1.56 ″, 1.0µm, PDAF, OIS
- 8 MP, f / 2.3, 119˚ (ultra-wide)
- 2 MP, f / 2.4, (monochrome)
- 32 MP, f / 2.5, (wide), 1 / 2.8 ″, 0.8 µm, selfie
I can’t say if the Samsung 108MP sensor on the Xiaomi will be better than the Sony IMX766 50 MP, but both phones offer a huge camera spec for phones under £ 500. I was particularly impressed with the OnePlus Nord 2 camera.
The Xiaomi 11T has a bigger battery at 5000mAh which is 11% bigger than the 4500mAh of the OnePlus Nord 2. I am happy with the OnePlus battery but the bigger the better for me.
The Xiaomi 11T has a slightly faster charge at 67W versus 65W, but Xiaomi also uses power delivery as the charging standard, so the phone should be 3 compatible.rd party chargers.
Considering the £ 100 price difference, it’s a close call and both phones are an amazing buy. I think the Mediatek Dimensity 1200 offers a superb balance of performance and affordability.
Xiaomi is now also committed to updating its phones for three years. So this should also be taken into account when deciding which one is better.
