Xiaomi Mi 11 series India launch teased; likely to arrive in April

Xiaomi Mi 11 series launch in India has been confirmed by the company. Right after the OnePlus 9 series launch event last night, Xiaomi India tweeted about its upcoming flagship series for the Indian market. 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 series consists of multiple devices - the vanilla Xiaomi Mi 11 is the only one that has been launched till now and on March 29, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra flagship phones will be launched Globally as well as in China. The company is also expected to launch the Mi 11 Lite 4G and Mi 11 Lite 5G as well. 

Soon after the Mi 11 series global launch next week, the Xiaomi Mi 11 series smartphones will be launched in India - likely in the month of April. Mi India’s tweet says “While others are focused on getting your attention, we are focused on making fiction a reality, and bringing you an all-new smartphone experience” - subtly taking a dig at the competition. 

While we do not have the exact launch timeline of the Mi 11 series in India, we expect the devices will launch in India in April. The Mi 11 Ultra’s IMEI number has been registered in India already so that launch won’t be too far away.
