Xiaomi has launched its latest series of flagship smartphones under its Xiaomi 11T series. The lineup consists of two devices - Xiaomi 11T and Xiaomi 11T Pro, both of which come with top-of-the-line specifications for cameras, processors, displays and more. The highlight, however, as is always the case with Xiaomi, is the prices of the Xiaomi 11T and the Xiaomi 11T Pro.
Alongside, the company has also debuted its Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE as the budget offering with premium features. The successor to the Mi 11 Lite, the new Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE comes with a focus on aesthetics and design and features a brand new colour called Snowflake White. The company even launched the new Xiaomi Pad 5 as its latest tablet offering alongside the phones.
The range of products launched by Xiaomi vary across product type and hence it can be a little tough to keep a track of all these at once. To avoid this confusion, here is your complete guide to what Xiaomi launched at its big event today.
Xiaomi 11T and Xiaomi 11T Pro
The showstoppers of the launch, the Xiaomi 11T and the Xiaomi 11T Pro were launched today as the company's new premium smartphone offerings. The devices are essentially the same, with minor upgrades on the 11T Pro over the vanilla model. Here is a look.
