Chinese certification bureau TENAA following technical specifications published the official images of smartphone Xiaomi CC11.
What was shown?
As usual, four images appeared on the website of the regulator, which in not the best quality show the smartphone from the front, back, left and right. But even so, there's plenty to talk about.
Firstly, you can notice the main camera pad on the rear panel in the style of Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite or Mi 11. Secondly, in the lower left corner of the back, the Xiaomi brand logo is already written in a new way. Third, the presence on the right end of the power button next to the volume control key tells us that the fingerprint scanner will be located under the display.
Note that the specifications of Xiaomi CC11 are almost exactly the same as those of Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G. The upcoming novelty, like the late Q1 model of this year, will get a 64MP main camera, 20MP front-facing camera, stereo speakers, Android 11 operating system and FHD+ OLED display.
Lite version is equipped with Snapdragon 780G chip. The TENAA database indicates that the Xiaomi C11 model will get an SoC with a peak frequency of 2.4 GHz. It could be either Snapdragon 780G or Snapdragon 778G. And the network informer Digital Chat Station, which named the price of the smartphone, is more inclined towards the second option. Another difference is that the Lite version is equipped with a lateral biometric sensor instead of a sub-screen sensor.
Battery capacity differs by 100 mA*h, but here we should not rush to premature conclusions. Usually, the TENAA database always indicates a capacity 100 mA*h lower than the final one. In other words, the Xiaomi CC11, like the Mi 11 Lite 5G, could also get a 4,250mAh battery.
Whether the smartphone will be sold outside of China due to many similarities with the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G is not yet clear. But there have been rumors about the Mi 11 Lite NE model with Snapdragon 778G chip. That might be the one.
