The front and back of the Xiaomi 11T is covered with panels of tempered Gorilla Glass Victus. The screen occupies 85% of the front side and is surrounded by minimal thickness bezels. The elongated shape of the smartphone adds to this impression. Around the perimeter of the body is a metal frame with a matte finish. Volume and power adjustment is done by buttons located on the right side. There you will also find the fingerprint scanner.

The external speaker has a stereo configuration. Thus, you will find a grille on both the top and bottom of the device.

The rear panel makes an impression that looks like metal. It reflects light beautifully, but easily accumulates your fingerprints. Xiaomi 11T can be found in the market in several colors - blue, gray and white. To keep it looking immaculate, we recommend putting it in a transparent case. Given the absence of protection of the housing from moisture and dust, this is a practical solution and will extend the life of the smartphone.


The Xiaomi 11T features a flat 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. The picture is refreshed at 120 Hz, which is an excellent indicator to date. In auto mode, the screen switches between 30, 60, 90 or 120 Hz depending on the type of content being played. Furthermore, the Xiaomi 11T's screen is HDR10+ compliant. Its brightness reaches 800 cd per square meter on a white background. In the display settings, you can choose from several colour profiles. The default is "Advanced".

On the rear panel, we see another 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a 120-degree viewing angle. The quality of the photos with it is also good. In super macro mode, the additional camera is used.

The Xiaomi 11T's front camera is a single, 16-megapixel camera and will also delight you with quality pictures as well as good background blur.
