Xiaomi 11T Pro

the Xiaomi 11T Pro is the first smartphone to ship with Xiaomi’s 120W Hypercharge Technology. The company says it can juice fully juice up the phone’s 5,000mAh battery from zero to 100 percent in only 17 minutes.

That means you’ll have more time to spend creating with its triple rear camera setup. That’s a pro-grade 108MP wide angle lens, a 5MP 2x telemacro lens, and an 8MP 120° ultra-wide angle lens.

The pro-grade lens will do a lot of the heavy lifting in the “Cinemagic” department but it won’t be without help. Aiding it is the Xiaomi 11T Pro’s computational filmography capabilities. These enable features like AI Cinema modes, 8K recording and HDR10+. Xiaomi says this lets the phone take videos with the same smart ISO technology found in digital cameras.

As this is a flagship smartphone, the rest of it is pretty par for the course for a 2021 premium phone. It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with the following configuration options: 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB, and 12GB+512GB.

The Xiaomi 11T Pro has a 6.67’’ FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED flat display. And the display comes with the usual flagship bells and whistles: TrueColor, Dolby Vision and HDR10+.

Xiaomi 11T

The Xiaomi 11T shares many similarities with the Pro variant. In fact, they’re almost indistinguishable at first glance. But the devil, of course, is always in the details.

Here’s everything that’s the same:

  • 6.67’’ FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED flat display
  • Triple camera setup: 108MP wide angle + 5MP 2x telemacro + 8MP 120° ultra-wide
  • 5000mAh battery

Here’s everything that’s different:

  • Mediatek Dimensity 1200-Ultra SOC
  • 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB configurations
  • 67W Wired Charging

Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE

If you’re not after the absolute best that Xiaomi has to offer but still want something competent, here’s the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE.

It has a 6.55” AMOLED DotDisplay with all that TrueColor and Dolby Vision goodness and a 90Hz refresh rate. Despite the size, it’s pretty lightweight weighing at only 158g.

The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chip and comes in the following configurations: 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, and 8GB+256GB. Its 4,250mAh battery supports 33W fast charging.

Lastly, it’s also packing a triple camera setup: 64MP wide, 8MP ultra-wide, and 5MP telemacro. There’s a 20MP front-facing camera for selfie takers.

All MediaTek processors found with vulnerabilities

Thankfully patched now

Published

on

Technology is imperfect. Though the tech world has a plethora of revolutionary features, it also has a handful of vulnerabilities that malicious parties can exploit with gusto. And, as long as that world keeps advancing, weaknesses will always be found. In a new report, a whopping 37 percent of all smartphones was found with a critical vulnerability.

Reported by Check Point Research, MediaTek’s processors apparently have a vulnerability embedded into their AI and audio components. Currently, MediaTek is one of the most popular processor brands in the world. The company’s lineup, including the Dimensity series, is found in around 37 percent of smartphones and devices around the world.

In their report, Check Point Research tried to reverse-engineer the processor’s audio components. Because of its architecture, a hacker can create a custom message that can access the feature remotely. As such, victimized devices can eavesdrop on their users without them knowing.

By the time that Check Point Research published the report, MediaTek already patched the vulnerability out from its current lineup. It was fixed in October and will be officially reported in the company’s December newsletter.

Of course, it all depends on whether users will keep their devices updated with the latest software releases. If you want to prevent your phones from getting victimized, always keep them updated with security updates pushed by your respective brand.

This will be ideal in coming up with features for customers who use Huawei’s wearables primarily for fitness functions.

Thanks in large part to these labs, Huawei’s smart wearable products support more than 100 workout modes which include even rock-climbing, swimming, golf, and more.

Scenario-based health experiences

The new HUAWEI Health Lab also serves as an incubator for scenario-based experiences and service packages that consumers can directly enjoy, including micro-physical examination, home fitness, and digital sports.
