TL;DR
  • Xiaomi has revealed that the Mi 11 Ultra is launching in India on April 23.
  • The phone launched in China for ~$913 and in Europe for ~$1,405.
  • So expect similarly premium pricing when it’s available in India.

Xiaomi has usually stayed away from $1,000+ phones, but it’s fully embraced the segment with the Mi 11 Ultra. The phone was launched in China and global markets this week, but what about India?

Fortunately, Xiaomi has now revealed that the device will be launched in India on April 23. The company sent out emails to the press to confirm the event, as well as launching a dedicated webpage for the local launch. Check out a screenshot at the top of the page.

One of the biggest questions surrounding the Mi 11 Ultra’s Indian launch is the actual price. The premium flagship launched in China at a starting price of 5,999 yuan (~$913) for an 8GB/256GB model, while European users only had access to a 12GB/256GB variant for €1,199 (~$1,405). Indian pricing is usually closer to the Chinese price though.

The Mi 11 Ultra features a Snapdragon 888 SoC, an IP68 rating for the first time in a Xiaomi phone, a WQHD+ 120Hz OLED screen, and a tiny 1.1-inch rear screen for selfie previews and notifications. Other notable features include a 5,000mAh battery, 67W wired/wireless charging, and an impressive rear camera setup in theory (50MP main, 48MP ultra-wide, 48MP 5X periscope).

We’re also expecting the vanilla Mi 11 to possibly make its Indian debut at this event, but we know that the Mi 11 Pro and Mi Mix Fold aren’t leaving China. What else would you like to see from Xiaomi bring to India otherwise? Let us know in the comments section.
