- Xiaomi is launching the Mi X series in India on April 23.
- The company could announce the Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro.
- The phones are expected to be rebranded variants of the Redmi K40 and K40 Pro Plus.
Xiaomi has just announced a brand new series of Mi branded flagship phones. The company will unveil the Mi X series in India on April 23 alongside the Mi 11 Ultra.
The name of the new Mi series phones might be new, but it seems they will be rebranded Redmi devices that have already launched in China. XDA Developers previously reported that Xiaomi will launch the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro Plus in India as the Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro.

This means that the new Xiaomi Mi X series of phones could come with triple rear cameras and 120Hz AMOLED displays. The Redmi K40 features a Snapdragon 870 chip, while the K40 Pro Plus is powered by the Snapdragon 888. Elsewhere, both phones get a 6.67-inch screen, MIUI 12, a 20MP selfie snapper, and a 4,520mAh battery. The main camera sensor, however, varies in both devices. The vanilla Redmi K40 gets a 48MP primary shooter, while the K40 Pro Plus ups it to a 108MP sensor.
We’re not sure if their specs will remain the same in India if and when they launch under the Mi X moniker. Xiaomi could tweak some things around for the Indian market. That said, we expect prices of the Mi X series to be lower than the Mi 11 Ultra that’s rumored to be the most expensive Xiaomi phone in India to date.
