Xiaomi is all geared up to launch the Mi 11 Ultra in India, and we already know that it’s an absolute beast. It comes with not one but two displays for starters, and it also has Samsung’s flagship GN2 sensor and Snapdragon 888. But we still don’t know how much is it going to cost in India. Usually, you might have to wait until the launch, but here we are, giving you an exclusive scoop.
But let’s rewind a bit. Earlier rumours have suggested that the Mi 11 Ultra would cost somewhere around Rs 70,000 since Xiaomi will be directly importing the units from china. But, according to our source, that’s not the case.
According to a person familiar with the development, it might cost lakhs. Our source said that “it’s worthy of lakh”, indicating that it might touch the Rs 1,00,000 mark. Further, the source implied that it’s going to be a no-compromise smartphone with “best of the best tech.”
If that’s the case, then Mi 11 Ultra will be Xiaomi’s one of the most expensive smartphone in India, which could be explicitly targeted at a narrow set of users.
Is Rs 1,00,000 Too Much For Mi 11 Ultra?
Well, it might not be a lot considering Xiaomi is directly importing the Mi 11 Ultra from China. Xiaomi is expected to bring the 12GB+256GB variant in India, which costs about CNY 6,4999 in China. After direct currency conversion, it comes to Rs 74,222 in India, and it could easily reach that Rs 1,00,000 mark in India after adding up the Import Duty and GST.
