It is also revealed (courtesy, Manu Kumar Jain) that the Mi X series will be customised, meaning that it could come with a number of changes only for the Indian users.
Mi 11X features, specs, price
For those who don’t know, the Mi 11X falls in the upper mid-range price segment and comes with a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip and comes with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
On the camera front, there are three rear cameras (a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 5-megapixel macro lens). The front snapper stands at 32-megapixel. It gets its fuel from a 4,520mAh battery, which supports 33W fast charging. The Mi 11X runs MIUI 12 based on Android 11.
Additionally, there’s support for a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos surround sound, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and more.
As for the price, we don’t have a concrete word. However, considering the price of the Redmi K40 (starts at CNY 1,999 or Rs 22,000), we can expect the phone to fall under Rs 30,000.
Since we don’t know what device will launch as part of the Mi X series, it’s best to wait until the April 23 event for a better idea. Hence, stay tuned for more updates.
