The Xiaomi Mi 11 has already been launched in its home country of China, but this flagship camera phone from Xiaomi is now due for an imminent global release as well. While we don't have a specific date for the Xiaomi Mi 11's rollout, Xiaomi has released a teaser poster saying "Mi 11 Series Global Launch Coming Soon" to help whet our appetite. 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 features a 6.81" 2K display with 3,200 x 1,440px screen resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate and a 480Hz touch sampling rate. The screen itself uses Gorilla Glass Victus to help ensure a hardy and scratch-resistant display.
