Xiaomi India capped off another big event earlier today where we saw the local launch of the brand’s most capable flagship – the Mi 11 Ultra alongside the Mi 11X series. The latter consists of two phones – the Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro which are known internationally as the Redmi K40 and K40 Pro+.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra
The Mi 11 Ultra is arguably the best-equipped camera flagship of 2021 headlined by Samsung’s massive GN2 sensor which measures in at 1/1.12 inches. The 50MP module packs OIS and shoots up to 8K video. It’s joined by a 48MP periscope module which brings 5x optical zoom and OIS. There’s also another 48MP ultrawide module to complete the focal length trifecta. You also get a tiny 1.1-inch screen on giant camera island which comes in handy as a viewfinder or a notification screen.
Elsewhere, the Mi 11 Ultra packs a 6.8-inch AMOLED display with 1440p+ resolution and 120HZ refresh rate, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset and 5,000 mAh battery with 67W wired and wireless fast charging.
The Mi 11 Ultra will retail for INR 69,999 ($935) and is coming soon on mi.com and Amazon India. It comes in Ceramic Black and White colors.
Xiaomi Mi 11 X series
The more affordable entries from today’s announcement are also quite impressive. Both the Mi 11X and Mi 11X pro bring 6.67-inch Super AMOLED displays with FHD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support.
The camera department is where we find the first major discrepancy with the Pro utilizing Samsung’s 108MP HM2 sensor which comes in at 1/1.52” in size and packs 2.1 µm pixels. The Mi 11X settles for a 48MP primary shooter instead. The remaining modules are the same on both phones – an 8MP ultrawide snapper and 5MP macro lens.
The other difference comes in the chipset department where the Mi 11X Pro brings the flagship Snapdragon 888 while the Mi 11X scales down to the Snapdragon 870 which is no slouch. Both handsets offer 4,520 mAh batteries with 33W charging.
Xiaomi Mi 11X series pricing and availability
The Mi 11X starts at INR 29,999 ($400) for the 6/128GB trim and goes up to INR 31,999 ($427) for the 8/128GB variant. First sales are scheduled for April 27.
The Mi 11X Pro goes for INR 39,999 ($535) in its 8/128GB config while the 8/256GB will set buyers back INR 41,999 ($560). It goes on sale starting April 24.
Xiaomi Mi QLED TV 75
The non-smartphone announcement of the event is the Mi QLED TV 75. It’s a 75-inch TV with 4K resolution and a 120HZ refresh rate and 192 zone full-array local dimming. There’s the obligatory HDR10+ support as well as Dolby Vision and Dolby Audio.
It boots Android TV 10 and features Xiaomi’s PatchWall interface. The TV can also serve as a control hub for your Mi home appliances via the Mi Home app. I/O consists of 3x HDMI 2.1 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet port, an optical port, AV input, antenna cable in and a headphone jack.
