Xiaomi had last month announced that it will soon be bringing the Mi 11 series to India soon. Later, it confirmed that the Mi 11 Ultra India launch will happen on April 23. The company has also been teasing the phone since then. That made most smartphone enthusiasts wonder what happened to the 'series' part. Well, Xiaomi India chief Manu Kumar Jain has now confirmed on Twitter that the company will be launching 'many' Qualcomm Snapdragon-8 series smartphones on the mentioned date.
This means that we can expect more than one Mi 11 smartphones in India later this month. For those unaware, Xiaomi had started the year by launching the Mi 11 in China. It was the first smartphone to pack a Snapdragon 888 SoC. It has since then added more smartphones to the line-up.
These include - Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11i, and the Mi 11 Lite 5G. Out of these, the Mi 11, Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, and the Mi 11i are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, while the Mi 11 Lite 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 780 chipset. According to Manu's tweet, few of the first three can arrive in India.
"Happy to bring #Snapdragon888 on not 1, but many Mi phones," Jain said, indicating that the company will launch multiple Snapdragon 888-powered smartphones.
All the smartphones are likely to be priced on the higher side as they will be imported from China. There is a chance that Mi 11 Ultra will cost more than Rs 70,000 in the country. The smartphone features a 6.81-inch sAMOLED display with QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 512GB of UFS 3.1 fast storage. The smartphone packs a 5,000mAh battery that supports 67W fast wired as well as wireless charging.
Mi 11 Ultra features a triple rear camera setup including a primary 50-megapixel Samsung GN2 sensor with OIS, a secondary 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 periscope telephoto lens with OIS, and a 48-megapixel Sony ultra-wide unit. On the front, there is a 20-megapixel camera.
