As per the India Today report, the Xiaomi executive revealed that the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge will be priced in the Rs 25,000 – Rs 30,000 range. However, the exact RAM and storage configurations remain unknown at the moment. Going by the past reports, the upcoming offering is expected to arrive in a sole 8GB + 128GB option. The teased pricing makes sense since the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge will arrive with upgrades over its predecessor that costs Rs 23,999 for the same RAM and storage variant.
“The Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge brings a lot of meaningful upgrades on the previous generation phone. You will see a lot of improvements on the phone under the hood. It will be more powerful but also more efficient,” Reddy told India Today.
We will have to wait till next week’s launch event to know more details about the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge.
