Earlier today, Xiaomi announced that the company will launch Mi 11 Ultra in India on April 24th. But, Mi 11 Ultra may not be the only product to launch in the upcoming Xiaomi event. Similar to China, and the Global launch event, we might see a host of new devices from Xiaomi in India. FoneArena, from sources close to it, has learnt that Xiaomi might launch as many as four Mi 11 series smartphones, Mi Band 6, a smartwatch, and a few more IoT products in 23rd April event.
As many as 4 Mi 11 Series devices might launch in India on April 23rd!
Recently, a finding by Xiaomiui revealed that as many as 4 Mi 11 series devices are lined up for India, these include, Mi 11, Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11X Pro (also known as Redmi K40 Pro+, and Mi 11i) and Mi 11X (also known as Redmi K40, and POCO F3).

At first glance, the above chart didn’t make much sense to us considering Xiaomi hasn’t been releasing more than a couple of Mi series devices in India in the past few years.
But think about this, the Mi 11X goes head-to-head against the OnePlus 9R. The Mi 11X Pro could be Xiaomi’s answer to the OnePlus 9, while the Mi 11 will compete with the OnePlus 9 Pro. Also, Xiaomi is calling it a ‘SuperPhone’, basically a phone for those who want cutting edge tech.
Our sources tell us that Xiaomi will launch Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11, and a Mi 11X series device in the upcoming launch event. Xiaomi, for the first time, is going aggressive with the Mi series of smartphones in India, and this is a consequence of the discontinuation of Redmi K series devices in India.
Mi Band 6 might launch in India on April 23rd!
Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Band 6 in China as well as in global markets earlier this week. Mi Band 6 is a significant improvement over the Mi Band 5 since it packs almost a 45% larger display without any significant improvement in overall footprint, and also brings blood oxygen monitoring to the Mi Band series. Indian buyers won’t have to wait much for the Mi Band 6, since it might launch in India along with the Mi 11 Ultra. Readers can head over to this post to learn about the Mi Band price and specifications in details.
Apart from Mi 11 series devices, and Mi Band 6, Xiaomi might launch a mid-range smartphone along with few other IoT products in India in the April event. The cheaper smartwatch that we are referring to here is the Mi Watch Lite, which is also available as Redmi Watch in certain markets. At this point, we are not sure if Xiaomi will launch it under Mi branding or Redmi branding in India. We will update this post as soon as we receive any details on IoT products.
