Xiaomi Mi 11X series looks eerily similar to Redmi K40 series in the first official images


Xiaomi Mi 11X series alongside the Mi 11 Ultra is all set to launch on April 23 in India. Ahead of the official announcement, Xiaomi India MD, Manu Kumar Jain revealed the first look of the Mi 11X series and it looks very similar to the Redmi K40 series that launched back in February in China. The pictures posted online to reveal the design of the phone along with its multiple colour options.

The tweet by Manu Kumar Jain reveals the first look of the upcoming Mi 11X series and hints that the phone will be available in Celestial Blue, Gold and Pink colours. However, it is entirely possible that this is the same phone which changes colours when viewed under different lighting conditions. The phone in the images has a triple camera setup on the back and is expected to be the standard Mi 11X variant. 

Xiaomi Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro will be available in 8+128GB and 8+256GB variants as per my source.

Moreover, popular tipster Mukul Sharma took to Twitter to provide us details of the storage variants of the Mi 11X series and the Mi 11 Ultra. As per Mukul, the Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro will be offered with 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage options respectively. Additionally, the Mi 11 Ultra could be offered in a single 12GB+256GB storage model in India. If the Redmi K40 is indeed rebranded as the Mi 11X for India, it is also likely that the Mi 11X Pro is based on either the Redmi K40 Pro or Redmi K40 Pro+.
