Bear in mind that the older, but more premium Mi 11 from xiaomi launched with the Snapdragon 888 chipset earlier this year.

So, what’s the real difference between the Mi 11T vs Mi 11 in terms of chipset power?
Lets take a look at how the Dimensity 1200 compares to the Snapdragon 888 in this specs comparison.


Similarities between the Mediatek Dimensity 1200 and The Snapdragon 888.

Dimensity 1200 and the Snapdragon 888 supports 5G and WiFi 6, UFS 3.1 and Bluetooth 5.2.


Major highlights of the Dimensity 1200.

The Dimensity 1200 is Mediatek’s highend chipset for the premium smartphone segment. Other than 5G support, Dimensity 1200 supports 200mp single camera lens, Bluetooth 5.2, call and data concurrency on its 5G connectivity, FHD+ display at 120hz refresh rate.


Highlights of the Snapdragon 888.

The Snapdragon 888 was launched in November last year, and at that time was the most premium chipset available for mobile computing.

Xiaomi was one of the fewer brands to adopt the chipset on their flagship devices which included the Xiaomi Mi 11 device.

The Snapdragon 888 boast of quick charge 5.0, 4K HDR mode, 5nm node process.


To get a more comprehensive side by side comparison between the Dimensity 1200 vs Snapdragon 888, let’s employ the service of a table.

There is no contemplating which is the more premium chipset between the Dimensity 1200 and the Snapdragon 888, thanks to the 5nm process of the SD 888 vs the 6nm of the Dimensity 1200.

Also, the Snapdragon 888 has a better display resolution at QHD+, 4K support compared to the Dimensity 1200 FHD+ display.

Notwithstanding, its not a flawless victory for the Snapdragon 888, as the Dimensity has a higher frequency core at 3Ghz compared to snapdragon 888 2.84Ghz chipset.

Other than these important yet few difference, both chipsets shares similar 200mp max camera support, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC and 5G support.

When you considers the Mi 11T being backed by a 5000mah battery compared to the Mi 11 4500mah battery, the difference in node process of 6nm to 5nm won’t really be felt in terms of battery performance.



Conclusively, though chipset is not enough reason to pick a smartphone since factors like pricing, availability and other features like build and design will be considered.

Which leaves the final decision to the buyer, so what do you think? Will you be going for the more premium Snapdragon powered Mi 11 or the more affordable Mi 11T powered Dimensity 1200?
