Xiaomi’s next flagship series, the Mi 11 lineup is tipped to launch on December 29. According to a report by Gizmochina citing a source, the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro will launch at the end of the month, though it is unclear whether the smartphones will debut in China-only or will they come to other markets as well. Previously, the Chinese smartphone maker had confirmed that the smartphone series would feature the latest Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC. At the moment, Xiaomi is yet to confirm the Mi 11 launch date officially.
Meanwhile, a photo of Xiaomi Technology Park – the company’s Beijing headquarters – by Redmi product director Wang Teng Thomas has started doing rounds on Weibo, while many suggesting that the image was captured using one of the Mi 11 phones.
