The Xiaomi 11i and 11i HyperCharge are the same phones with different battery capacities and charging speeds. The 11i packs a 5,160 mAh battery with 67W charging support, whereas the 11i HyperCharge comes with a 4,500 mAh cell that can go up to 120W. The 11i HyperCharge is also three grams lighter than the 11i at 204g.
The MIUI 13 upgrade, which is based on Android 12, is now available for the Xiaomi 11i and 11i HyperCharge, which were released in India in January with Android 11-based MIUI 12.5E. Although Xiaomi hasn’t given a whole changelog of the update, you can anticipate it to include the same niceties found on other Xiaomi smartphones running MIUI 13 over Android 12.

The rest of the specs remain the same on both smartphones, meaning regardless of which one you buy, you’ll get the Dimensity 920 SoC, 6.67″ 120Hz FullHD+ AMOLED screen, and triple camera setups on the back, comprising 108MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, and 2MP macro units. For selfies and video calls, you get 16MP front-facing cameras on both smartphones, and they also feature side-mounted fingerprint readers for biometric authentication.
