Xiaomi is gearing as much as launch the Mi 11 Extremely as its subsequent flagship smartphone, and one of many extra attention-grabbing design touches is a tiny, postage-stamp-sized show in… uh, the digicam bump? Filipino YouTuber Tech Buff brings us an unique leak of the gadget, which has some pixels the place there usually are not usually pixels. Should you’re sitting there asking “why?” the reply is “consideration.” The reply is all the time “consideration.” We’re writing about it proper now, so it’s very working!

Tech Buff ended up taking the video down, however a mirror of the video is up on YouTube.

We do not have official specs, a launch date, or advertising and marketing data but, however the cellphone appears to be a fairly normal 2021 flagship with a Snapdragon 888 SoC. The again options what must be the world’s greatest digicam bump, with two huge lenses, a “120x” periscope digicam (that is not the precise optical zoom score), and an LED flash. Subsequent to all that ordinary digicam stuff is a tiny little show, which appears to be the identical facet ratio because the entrance show and seems to easily mirror the entrance show always. The video exhibits the again display screen maintaining with the entrance display screen because the person navigates round in a number of apps. Hopefully, you possibly can flip it off, too, for privateness’s sake.

Once more, with no advertising and marketing supplies to seek the advice of, it is arduous to know precisely what the purpose of the additional display screen is. It might work as a viewfinder when taking a selfie with the rear digicam, however it’s arduous to think about utilizing it for rather more than that—it is simply so ridiculously small. The cellphone has a entrance digicam, so you possibly can nonetheless take selfies the old style approach, too.

Squeezing a show into the digicam bump means the Mi 11 Extremely has one of many greatest digicam bumps ever. The digicam bump is clearly tremendous tall, and it stretches throughout your complete width of the cellphone. One good thing about that is that it means the cellphone will truly be regular on a desk. Telephones with tall digicam bumps typically rock backwards and forwards while you attempt to use them on a desk, however this seems like it is going to be rock-solid.

The white model of the Mi 11 Extremely with a full-width black digicam bump is a useless ringer for the Nokia 808. That cellphone, from 2012, used its big digicam bump for big digicam {hardware}, and in consequence can nonetheless stand as much as fashionable flagship smartphone cameras. If we’ll go together with these big digicam bumps, I want somebody would copy the 808 technique as an alternative of… no matter that is.
