Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge 5G: Specifications
The Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge 5G has a new design with flattened sides and rounded corners. At 8.34mm in thickness, the phone still feels slim, although the 204g weight is noticeable. The frame seems to be made out of polycarbonate while the back panel is glass.
Sticking to the current trend of side-mounted fingerprint scanners, the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge 5G has the scanner placed on the right, along with the volume buttons. The phone also sports stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an IR emitter which is almost present on every other Xiaomi smartphone.
The back panel of the Camo Green variant of the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge 5G has a matte finish. This creates a dual-tone effect, and the green colour is only really noticeable when light hits it at an angle. With only a ‘Xiaomi 5G’ branding on the back, there is a minimalist design of this smartphone that is alluring. The camera module is bigger than that of the Mi 10i and protrudes quite a bit. It houses three cameras, a 108-megapixel primary, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and a 5-megapixel macro camera. For selfies, this phone has a 16-megapixel front camera.
The highlight of Xiaomi’s new smartphone is the 120W fast charging support. Xiaomi bundles a 120W charger in the box. It has a full-sized USB Type-A port, and you also get a Type-A to Type-C cable with this phone. The Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge 5G packs in a 4,500mAh battery, which Xiaomi claims can be filled fully in just 15 minutes.

Xiaomi’s new smartphone price in India starts at Rs. 26,999 for the base variant which has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
