Xiaomi CC product manager and brand spokesperson Wei Siqi clearly stated that the new generation of CC series models will be released in the third quarter of this year. He confirmed that Xiaomi’s CC series still exists. One of the Weibo tipsters previously reported that a new Xiaomi device with model number 2107119DC is the sequel to the Xiaomi CC series. Though there is nothing official, we think it will be called the Xiaomi CC 11 / Pro.
The Xiaomi CC 11 will feature a 90Hz OLED punch-hole screen. Xiaomi CC 11 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G or the Snapdragon 780G chip. At the same time, the Xiaomi CC 11 Pro will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip.
In terms of optics, the handset will feature a 1/1.3x-inch outsole lens and a 5x periscope lens with optical zoom. On the rear, the phone will feature a 64MP multi-focus + telephoto triple camera system.
Samsung released the 50MP ISOCELL GN1 sensor last year. It is now available on the VIVO X60 Pro+, Meizu 18 Pro, and other mobile phones. Later, we heard that Samsung will release the ISOCELL GN1s and ISOCELL GN3 in the second half of the year.
Xiaomi’s self-tuned 200MP camera will be used on the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 12 and the Xiaomi MIX 4. If so, the CC series, which is aiming at cameraphone fans, will be excluded from Xiaomi’s product list.
Xiaomi is using Samsung sensors on its mid-range and high-end models. So it does not rule out the possibility that Xiaomi will debut the mentioned sensors. However, the GN1s model currently being tested by Xiaomi is up to 50MP.
According to it, Xiaomi took the management of the smartphone business of Meitu. But it wasn’t going to release Meitu-branded smartphones.
This company had been known for its selfie phones and Xiaomi just used its technologies to form a new niche in the smartphone market. Current smartphones come with outstanding selfie shooters.
