The rear features a triple camera setup, including a 5MP ultrawide sensor, a 13MP sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. It can record up to 1080p resolution videos.
There are two variants of the M11. The cheapest one features a 3gb+32GB configuration, and the slightly expensive one has a 4gb+64GB setup. Plus, both models have a dedicated MicroSD card slot. And all these are powered by a 5000 mAh battery. You can get the M11 in three different shades, i.e., Black, Violet, and Metallic Blue.
