Xiaomi Mi 11X hands-on review

0 15


Mi 11X is the latest premium mid-range offering from Xiaomi in India. It is part of a series of two devices, the other being the Mi 11X Pro, which was also launched alongside last week.

The Mi 11X is essentially a renamed Redmi K40 or Poco F3 for the Indian market. The three phones are identical to each other save for the name printed on the back.

The reason it has been renamed Mi 11X in India is probably because the Redmi name is more synonymous with budget units and the Poco branding these days is reserved for mid-range models. As this model is on the more expensive side for Xiaomi in India, it gets the more premium Mi branding.

Overview of Xiaomi Mi 11X specifications:

  • Body: 163.7×76.4×7.8mm, 196g. Glass front (Gorilla Glass 5), glass back (Gorilla Glass 5), plastic frame.

However, true to the Xiaomi ethos, the Mi 11X is very well specified for the price, starting at INR 29,999 ($ ​​400). You get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset, a 120Hz AMOLED screen, triple rear camera, 4520mAh battery and 33W fast charging. Compared to the OnePlus 9R, which includes a similar feature set, the Mi 11X is a cool INR 10,000 ($ 135) cheaper.

Of course, not everything can be evaluated on paper, and some things need to be tried personally. So we spent a week with the Mi 11X and that’s what we found.


The Mi 11X comes with a fairly standard retail package consisting of the phone, a 33W quick charger, a USB 2.0 cable and a soft silicone case.
