A few days back, Xiaomi announced that it will be launching the ‘Mi 11 Ultra’ in India on April 23, 2021. But a few hours back, Manu Kumar Jain, Global VP and MD for Xiaomi India tweeted that the company will launch not just one but several devices on the said date.
Initially, we expected the whole lineup of Mi 11 devices to be plainly launched in India. But according to a recent release from the company, that might not be the case. Xiaomi said that it is launching a new ‘X’ series of smartphones in India on April 23, 2021.
The Mi 11X has already launched for the international market as Poco F3, the rebranded version of Redmi K40. The Redmi K40 has two variants, the vanilla variant and the ‘Pro’ variant. Xiaomi might go the same path for India and launch Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro.
According to the tweet from Xiaomi, the new ‘X’ series will bring flagship smartphones to the Indian market. Let’s take a look at the specifications of the Mi 11X launched in the international market.
