Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun confirmed that the upcoming Mi 11 will not come with a charger. The chief executive said that this is because of environmental concerns.
Jun made his statements on a popular Chinese social media site Weibo. He said that many people with chargers create an environmental burden.
These are the many reasons that Xiaomi is canceling the basic chargers for the Mi 11. Here’s the exact statement.
“In response to the call of technology and environmental protection, the included charger is canceled from the box.”
“Hope to get your support. Is there a better solution between industry practice and environmental protection?”
Xiaomi and Samsung followed Apple’s decision
However, Samsung mysteriously deleted the FB post. After several days, many rumors emerged.
They claimed that Samsung is also removing the basic charger from its upcoming flagships, just like Xiaomi.
The Chinese tech giant also posted a short video. The clips show that Mi 10T Pro comes with a charger in the box.
But, the post was contradicted after Jun’s statements. Both of Apple’s competitors just show that companies should always update their marketing team.
They should always update their ad team with their future product decisions.
Images of the product are leaked
The Chinese tech giant manufacturer will unveil the Mi 11 on Dec. 28. However, the leaks may have spoiled the surprise since they already revealed the phone’s appearance.
Mi 11’s new set of official-looking renders were leaked online. These photos gave the fans a better look at what’s coming to them.
The leaked images also showed that Mi 11 could have the latest Snapdragon 888 SoC. Aside from the new chipset, Mi 11 might also have four colors.
The photos revealed that it could also have a 108MP primary camera.
A couple of live shots of the Mi 11 have also surfaced. They gave a sneak peek of the front and rear sides of the phone.
When it comes to its physical appearance, the upcoming device has curved edges and a leather-like texture. However, the photos don’t reveal the screen’s upper portion.
Although this is the case, the images still show that Mi 11 will have 12GB RAM and Android 11-based MIUI 12 onboard. But, this is all just speculation.
It is still recommended to wait for Xiaomi’s actual announcements before concluding. As of the moment, the company hasn’t detailed the product’s specs.
However, Xiaomi did confirm that the device will come with Gorilla Glass Victus. The Chinese giant also claims that its screen will be the most expensive one on the market.
The manufacturer even said that the phone’s screen is comparable to a mainstream TV display.
