The smartphone market doesn’t stand still for long, and we’re already looking forward to what the Xiaomi Mi 11T flagship might have in store – in particular, two innovations that would put it on a par or ahead of every other handset on the market.
According to well-known tipster Digital Chat Station on Chinese social network Weibo (via PhoneArena), a future Xiaomi flagship is going to feature both an under-display selfie camera and ultra-wideband (UWB) support to help it stand out from the crowd.
That in-screen camera is a rumor we’ve heard before in regards to future Xiaomi phones, and the technology is also supposedly coming to handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S22. You can actually get under-display selfie cameras on smartphones today – they just don’t work very well.Hello there, Beats Studio Buds

As for ultra-wideband support, the short range communications protocol has been built into recent iPhones, and is the main technology offered by the Apple AirTags. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Xiaomi was planning some tracking devices of its own.
