Xiaomi has finally launched the Xiaomi 11i series in India. The lineup comprises two models: the Xiaomi 11i and 11i HyperCharge. The latter comes with a whopping 120W fast charging support, which is a first for India. On the other hand, the standard Xiaomi 11i is restricted to 67W, which is still decent. The phones are a rebrand of the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ that debuted in China back in October. They come with a centre-positioned punch-hole cutout, a rectangular module to house triple camera lenses — led by a 108MP primary camera, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security.
