Xiaomi is all set to launch its first smartphone with 120W fast charging in India. The Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge (in line with previous rumours) will be launched in India on January 6, 2022 through an online event. The smartphone is said to be the rebadged version of the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ recently launched in China. Here are the details.
Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge India launch confirmed
Xiaomi has confirmed through a media invite and a Twitter post that the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge is coming to India next month. The 120W fast charging is said to fully charge the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge in about 15 minutes. Yes, you read that right! This makes the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge “India’s fastest charging smartphone.”
As you can see from the teaser image, the company will unveil more than one Xiaomi 11i smartphone next month. That means we get the 11i HyperCharge with 120W fast charging and a standard 11i with slower charging. We expect the latter to be a rebranded version of the stock Redmi Note 11 Pro.
In addition, the upcoming Xiaomi phone is available to purchase exclusively through Flipkart, as revealed through the now live landing page on the e-commerce platform. The page will reveal more details about the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge in the coming days.
Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge: specifications and features (expected)
As for the specs, the Xiaomi 11i series is expected to have the same specs as the Redmi Note 11 Pro Series in China. And well, most of the hardware specs for both phones are the same, except for the battery size and charging speeds. We can expect both models to come with a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and Gorilla Glass Victus protection on top. They will be powered by the MediaTek Dimension 920 SoC. It could be equipped with up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
The camera department is expected to feature three rear cameras: a 108MP primary camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide camera and a 2 MP telephoto macro camera. You can also expect a 16MP selfie camera on board.
Now we come to the most important aspect of the Xiaomi 11i series. The standard 11i is likely to be backed by a 5,160 mAh battery with 67 W fast charging, while the 11i HyperCharge model is expected to have a 4,500 mAh battery with 120 W fast charging support. The devices will run MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11. Other details expected include 5G support, an in-display fingerprint scanner and more.
While the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge price in India remains unknown, it could most likely fall in the mid-range and drop below Rs 40,000. That said, we’ll have to wait until January 6 to know the official details about the phones. So stay tuned as we will keep you updated with all the information.
