While the post mentions that delay in the shipment, it does not mention a timeline of when we may be able to see this smartphone being made available for the public. The reasons for this delay is anybody’s guess at this point and could range from a situation resulting from Covid lockdowns to other shipment delays.
Back when the smartphone was launched in India, the company happened to not mention a date of when it might go for sale in India. This was unusual considering that smartphone manufacturers usually communicate the date of sale during launch.
As for the specs of the smartphone, it comes with a 6.81-inch Samsung E4 AMOLED quad-curved display with WQHD+ resolution (3200 x 1440p), 120Hz refresh rate, 480Hz touch input rate and 20:9 aspect ratio.
Under the hood, the device is powered by a Snapdragon 888 processor. The Mi 11 Ultra is available in sole 12GB + 256GB configuration, with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. In terms of camera, the Mi 11 Ultra is a beast with three primary cameras. A 50MP f/1.12 Samsung GN2 sensor with a 1/1.12” sensor size, a 48MP(IMX 586) ultra-wide lens, and a 48MP Sony IMX586 telephoto lens with 5x digital, 10x optical and 120x digital zoom capabilities. There is also a 20MP selfie shooter on the front.
The Mi 11 Ultra packs in a 5,000mAh battery unit which supports 67W wired as well as wireless fast charging. Other features include an in-display fingerprint scanner, dual stereo speakers with Sound by Harman Kardon, Hi-Res wired and wireless audio, IR Blaster, MIUI 12 based on Android 11, and NFC.
