Xiaomi has scheduled a “mega launch” event on March 29, where the company will unveil a “new product.” Although the Chinese tech company has not shared the exact details about what’s going to come, the development comes amid speculations that Xiaomi would launch Mi 11 Ultra shortly. Xiaomi launched the flagship Mi 11 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor in December 2020, though the phone has been rumoured to get at least two more variants – the Mi 11 Pro and the Mi 11 Ultra. There’s also a Mi 11 Lite in the works, but its details remain scarce. Traditionally, Xiaomi brings multiple variants of a smartphone series, so it is safe to assume that Mi 11 would get more versions in future. For instance, the Mi 10 series that debuted last year includes the vanilla Mi 10 alongside Mi 10 Ultra, Mi Note 10 Lite, Mi 10 Lite, 10 Lite Zoom Edition, and Mi 10 Pro.
Xiaomi shared the development about the ‘mega launch’ event across its social media channels. The global event will take place on March 29 at 19:30 GMT+8 (5 PM IST).

Recently, Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra received certification in Indonesia with model number M2102K1G. The letter ‘G’ in the model number suggests that the phone is associated with a global version. Before that, a YouTuber Tech Buff showcased (video taken down) the alleged Mi 11 Ultra where we can notice its black and white colour variants. The YouTuber (via XDA Developers) had stated the triple rear camera system on Mi 11 Ultra includes a 50-megapixel primary sensor, a 48-megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens, and a 48-megapixel periscopic telephoto zoom lens. At the front, there is a 20-megapixel selfie shooter housed in a hole-punch cutout.
Further, the Mi 11 Ultra will reportedly feature a 6.8-inch curved OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. It may come with an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance and a 5,000mAh battery. The YouTuber had added that the phone supports 67W wired charging, 67W wireless charging, and 10W reverse charging. The speakers are said tuned by Harman Kardon. Similar to the Mi 11, the Mi 11 Ultra may pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.
