The Xiaomi 11T Pro has a strong and sturdy construction, with the display protected by Corning's top-end Gorilla Glass Victus.
The handset is not distinctive on the screen side. A shallow bezel all around the 6.67-inch display, with a small central camera notch breaking up the screen's continuity, is unremarkable. Rounded edges lead neatly into the backplate, which is where the Xiaomi 11T Pro differentiates itself.
The triple camera array sits in a large lozenge located on the upper left corner of the backplate, where it protrudes significantly, causing the phone to rock and roll around my desk when you jabbed at almost any point on the screen.
The back of unit was a real fingerprint collector, and you was forever giving it a wipe to restore its appearance. Xiaomi provides a clear silicone bumper which removes the fingerprint issue, although it also dissipates the gleam of the backplate and the ability to appreciate that etched pattern.
