Xiaomi is about to unveil a more powerful Mi 11 Pro, and the leaks are on the increase. We learn in particular in a Geekbench listing that the smartphone could embed a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chip rather than a Snapdragon 888. A specialist nevertheless claims that this listing is misleading.

While Xiaomi is due to unveil the Mi 11 Pro sometime in March, a strange listing has just appeared on Geekbench. The model name of the smartphone is not visible, but we can see the model number M2102K1AC associated with the Mi 11 Pro. Several sites then deduced that the Mi 11 Pro would correspond to the characteristics of this listing.

However, if we stick to this scenario, the news is not very good. It seems that the smartphone has an “ARM MT6889Z / CZA” processor – serial number which corresponds to the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chip. In itself, this chipset is quite decent, but there was something to prefer the Snapdragon 888 which is clearly a cut above.

What if the Xiaomi Mi 11 had a MediaTek chip on board?

However, since then, other sources have raised the doubt on this Geekbench listing. Indeed, it seems that a developer changed the model number of his smartphone before putting it online. The real smartphone that would hide behind these characteristics would be the Redmi K30 Ultra launched in August 2020 in China, and which actually embeds this MediaTek chip.

The code name cezanne seems to give substance to this theory since the K30 Ultra had the same upstream of its presentation. The Mi 11 Pro has been expected for weeks with a setup hinged around the Snapdragon 888 chip – but at this point there are rumors, and while we’re probably only weeks away from its presentation, this aspect of its technical sheet is still uncertain.

According to the latest leaks, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro should carry a triple main photo sensor, with a 50 MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor, 8 or 12 GB of RAM, a 120 Hz screen and an almost 5000 mAh battery compatible with fast charging. wireless 67 W.
