Xiaomi will be unveiling the global variant of its flagship Mi 11 today. The phone has already been launched in China and the global variant is not expected to have any major changes. The smartphone will be unveiled at an online event, which will be streamed via Xiaomi’s YouTube channel and on the official website Mi.com. The launch event will begin at 14:30 IST.
The Mi 11 was unveiled in China in the last week of December 2020. It became the first phone to be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship processor, Snapdragon 888. Like Apple’s iPhone 12 series and Samsung’s S21 series, Xiaomi excluded the charger from the box as well. However, the company gave buyers a choice to opt for the one that comes with a charger without additional cost. It will be interesting to see whether Xiaomi gives the same option on the global variant as well.
