Xiaomi has officially announced a new product launch event tagged the ‘2021 #XiaomiMegaLaunch’. The event, which was announced via a tweet on the Chinese company's official Twitter handle, is scheduled to hold online on Monday, the 29th of March at 19:30 (GMT+8), and it is expected - based on recent rumors making the rounds - that this launch would bring to the limelight three new smartphones; the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro, and the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.
Some other not-so-credible sources suggest that smartphones are not the only things Xiaomi will be launching at the upcoming event, as mentions of the MiBook Pro, the Mi TV, and the Mi Cleaner Robot are also getting quite popular. The company has, however. not released an official list of prospective new products, so the aforementioned products are only speculations.
Despite speculations, we expect to receive the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite before any other product, after the just-announced “Mega Launch''. This 6.67' smartphone is rumored to be hitting us with the Android version 11 coupled with Xiaomi’s MIUI 12. It is also expected to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 775G chipset, possessing a set of three cameras behind, with spy shots pointed at them. The main camera should be a 64-megapixel camera while the supporting two should be an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 5MP macro unit respectively.
The top-end variants of the company's new flagships - the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra, are expected to possess periscope shooters with 120x hybrid zoom sporting a tiny display at the back of the devices for much better selfies with the back cameras. However, the lower variants of these two smartphones are said to be coming with the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GN2 sensor with a resolution of 50MP.
Though they seem pretty similar, there is expected to be a significant difference between these two devices in terms of battery capacity and charging capabilities; the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is expected to come with a charging capability of 66W while the Mi 11 Ultra would be breaking ground with a charging capability of 120W.
There should also be a difference in storage capability as we have seen with other Xiaomi smartphones. The Xiaomi Mi 11 series will most likely come in internal storage variants that range anywhere between 128GB and 256GB of ROM.
Xiaomi did not reveal any other detail about the upcoming launch, so we are left in anticipation of what will be hitting us on the 29th.
