Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Ultra is now available in limited numbers in India. The firm launched its new flagship smartphone in March, but it has been nearly difficult to purchase one outside of China since then. The phone sold out quickly in the United Kingdom in May, indicating very limited availability, and Xiaomi announced last month that the Indian launch will be delayed “due to circumstances beyond our control.”
Now, Xiaomi has revealed how consumers in India would be able to get one if they are ready to jump through a few hoops. Customers would need to purchase an “ultra gift card” on the Mi.com website for Rs. 1,999 ($27), which can then be used against the price of the Mi 11 Ultra and includes certain extras like as two free screen replacements.
In India, the Mi 11 Ultra begins at Rs. 69,999 (US$940). Xiaomi hasn’t said how long the gift cards will be available for purchase, how many phones will be available for buy, or when they will arrive, but it has described the release as a “limited-quantity offer.”
Further, The Mi 11 Ultra’s main advantage over its (very decent) non-ultra brother is a whole new camera technology. The main camera includes a 50-megapixel sensor with a huge 1/1.12-inch sensor, and there are additional 48-megapixel ultrawide and telephoto modules. All of this is housed in a massive camera bump that includes a secondary OLED screen that can be utilised as a viewfinder.
