Just a couple of days after its launch in the global market, Xiaomi has now announced that it would launch the Mi 11 Ultra in India on the 23rd of April. Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, if you don’t know, is the highest end phone that the company has launched under the Mi 11 series, and it packs some crazy features such as the biggest camera sensor on a smartphone, a secondary display in the camera module, 120X Zoom, a 120Hz AMOLED panel and more.
Manu Kumar Jain, the Global VP of Xiaomi, announced the launch date on his Twitter account, and Xiaomi is teasing the launch with the hashtag #SuperPhone. This does make sense because it is not your typical flagship phone but more like a flagship phone on steroids. There is a 6.81-inch Quad-Curved E4 AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, 2K resolution, and up to 480Hz touch-sampling-rate. On top of this panel is the Gorilla Glass Victus protection. The display has a hole-punch cutout in the center that has the 20 Megapixel selfie camera in it.
The camera setup on the rear is really impressive. There is a massive 1/1.12” Samsung GN2 sensor for the primary shooter, which is the largest camera sensor on any phone so far. The individual pixel size is 1.4-micron, and yes, we are talking about each pixel and not the pixel size after pixel binning. There is OIS for this camera. There is a 48 Megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor for the ultrawide camera, and finally, there is another 48 Megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor, this time for the periscope camera. It offers up to 10X Optical and 120X Digital Zoom. The periscope camera has OIS too. All three cameras on the rear are capable of shooting 8K videos!
Underneath, Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a 5,000mAh battery and supports 67W fast wired and fast wireless charging. There is Snapdragon 888 SOC, LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage. There is 5G support, Stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon, IP68 rating, Ceramic back, and a secondary AMOLED display on the rear.
While we don’t know at what price Xiaomi will launch Mi 11 Ultra in India, don’t expect it to come cheap as in Europe only, it costs €1,200, which translates to over 1 Lac rupees.
