Xiaomi has built a display from a fitness bracelet into a flagship smartphone

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun revealed an unexpected detail on the design of the new flagship Mi 11

Ultra. As it turned out, the additional display of the smartphone, which is located in the camera block, was borrowed from the Mi Band 5 fitness bracelet.

The additional screen has a diagonal of only 1.1 inches. It is designed to display the time and date, notifications and selfie camera shots.

Lei Jun confirmed that this display has already been used in Xiaomi products - in the fitness tracker Mi Band 5. The latter has the exact same 1.1-inch screen.

It is not yet clear what origin these displays have. Perhaps Xiaomi pulled them out of unsold fitness bracelets, or perhaps ordered more of these screens from their suppliers.
