Xiaomi Mi 11X-Series: Rumored Specs
The company is rumored to launch two new devices – the Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro. The Mi 11X is rumored to be a rebranded Redmi K40 or Poco F3 that launched earlier this year. On the other hand, the Mi 11X Pro might be a rebranded Redmi K40 Pro/Pro+ or the Mi 11i (rebranded K40 Pro in global markets).
Both the devices under the Xiaomi Mi 11X-series will likely pack the same processor as the Redmi K40 series. So, the Mi 11X Pro might feature the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset inside. While the lower-end Mi 11X is likely to pack the Snapdragon 870. Apart from this, the devices will feature a 6.67-inch E4 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. There’s a triple camera setup on the rear aboard both the phones.
If these devices follow the Chinese prices of the Redmi K40 series, the Mi 11X Pro might start at Rs 33,700 (CNY 2,999) for the base model. The Mi 11X, on the other hand, will start around Rs 24,700 (CNY 2,199) for the base model.
However, these are just speculations. We will get to know the actual prices of the Mi 11X series once they are unveiled on April 23. So, stay tuned for that!
