Mi 11X specifications (expected)

Since the Mi 11X is most likely a rebranded Redmi K40/POCO F3, we already know what to expect in terms of specifications. The Redmi K40 is powered by the Snapdragon 870 5G chipset, and will thus offer 5G connectivity. The chipset is paired with a maximum of 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. It gets a 6.67-inch AMOLED display that offers FHD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a peak brightness of 1,300 nits. The 20-megapixel selfie camera is housed inside a punch-hole camera cutout. 

The Mi 11X could get a triple rear camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide unit, and a 5-megapixel telephoto sensor. It gets a 4,520mAh battery with 33W fast charging support. It also features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and Dolby Atmos surround support dual speakers. As confirmed by Xiaomi, the Indian variant, Mi 11X, will get some customisations. We’re going to have to wait till April 23rd to find out what these additional features are, and whether they are hardware or software-related. 

We expect the Mi 11X price in India to be under Rs 30,000 in India. The base variant could be priced around Rs 21,000. Not long to go before we find out all the details.
