Xiaomi has unveiled its super-premium flagship, the Mi 11 Ultra in India earlier this year, most precisely in April. The smartphone arrived as the true king of the Mi 11 family featuring innovative design and top-of-the-line specs. For instance, the device comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. It also has a very impressive camera setup with a 50 MP 1/1.12-inch sensor and two 48 MP camera sensors. The device arrived at INR 69,999 in the country, which was a fairly decent price. However, a few months after its launch, the device is being discontinued in India.
According to a report from India Today, Xiaomi is discontinuing the premium smartphone in India. Apparently, the company has sold all possible stock of the device. It has been imported from China. In fact, the listing of the Mi 11 Ultra was taken down from Xiaomi India’s website. There is no official word on whether the Mi 11 Ultra will make a comeback to India, but we don’t think so. The folks in India today think the same and state that the company launches a new flagship in 2022 to replace the device. Perhaps a Xiaomi 12 Ultra. The 11 Ultra was available in a single option with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of Storage.
We don’t know if this has been planned since the beginning or is just another casualty of the crisis in the semiconductor industry. But those that didn’t buy the Mi 11 Ultra until now will probably not be able to do it anymore.
Xiaomi 11 Ultra specs recap
For those unaware, the Xiaomi 11 Ultra comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC and draws its powers from a huge 5,000 mAh battery. The device is completed with a 5,000 mAh battery with 67 W fast-charging. However, the retail box only includes a 55 W charger. On the back, the Mi 11 Ultra has a triple-camera setup. It comprises a 50 MP Samsung GN2 1/1.2-inch sensor, a 48 MP ultrawide camera, and a 48 MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. Next to the camera module is a 1.1-inc secondary display for displaying notifications, battery stats, etc.
The device flaunts a gorgeous curved display with a 6.8-inch WQHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. The display is impressively bright with 1700 nits of peak brightness. In terms of software, it runs Android 11-based with MIUI 12 straight out of the box. However, it is already running MIUI 12.5 at the time of this writing.
