After weeks of teasing, Xiaomi has finally unveiled the Mi 11X series, and it’ll be succeeding the Mi 10T series. Consisting of the Mi 11X Pro and the Mi 11X, the series will be going up against the vivo X60 series, realme GT, OnePlus 9 series, and OPPO Find X3 series.

The Mi 11X Pro sits between the ultra-premium range and midrange, offering best-in-class specifications that aren’t too heavy on the pocket. Unlike its predecessor, it’s much lighter now, coming in at 196g. The primary camera also has a halo ring that makes the lens easy to spot. It’s IP53 rated for dust and water protection.

On the front is a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, Full HD resolution, Gorilla Glass 5 protection, and HDR10+ support. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 888 processor that’s backed by Adreno 660 GPU. There’s 8GB of RAM, and storage isn’t expandable.

The rear gets a triple-camera setup that includes a 108-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 5-megapixel macro lens. Xiaomi says the new primary sensor leverages 9-in-1 2.1μm Super Pixel technology that produces better low-light images and retains details. On the front is a 20-megapixel front camera that’s located in a punch-hole cut-out.

Backing these internals is a slightly small 4520mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging. According to the brand, it can charge the phone fully in just 52 minutes. There’s no headphone jack in line with previous Mi-branded premium phones, and the fingerprint scanner is located on the side.

The Mi 11X Pro costs INR 39,999 (US$ 533) for the 8GB+128GB option and INR 41,999 (US$ 560) for the 8GB+256GB variant. Shipments start from May 3, and color options include Cosmic Black, Lunar White, and Magic Celestial Silver.


The Mi 11X, on the other hand, inherits a lot of features from the elder sibling. It has the same AMOLED display, design, battery, and even color options. But it’s powered by a Snapdragon 870 processor, and there’s an option with 6GB RAM. On the rear, it gets a 48-megapixel primary camera instead, while the other two sensors remain the same as the Mi 11X Pro.

It’s priced at INR 29,999 (US$ 400) for the 6GB+128GB option and 8GB+128GB goes for INR 31,999 (US$ 425). The sale starts on April 27 via Mi.com, Mi Stores, Amazon.in, and other offline partners.
