Xiaomi breaks silence on Mi 11 Ultra India availability, says phone delayed due to ‘circumstances beyond our control’

Xiaomi has lastly broken its silence on the Mi 11 Ultra India availability predicament, saying the phone is delayed due to “circumstances beyond our control”. The “superphone”, as Xiaomi likes to contact it, was launched in late April at a price tag of Rs 69,999 but it was under no circumstances shipped. The fairly more mass-industry Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro phones which have been launched alongside the Mi 11 Ultra, have been readily available as quickly as launch in contrast with the Mi 11X going on sale from April 27 and Mi 11X Pro going on sale from May 3. This is the initially time that Xiaomi has announced a item and did not deliver–for so lengthy.

Leading into today’s formal announcement, Xiaomi had maintained stone-cold silence about the availability of the Mi 11 Ultra even as fans and enthusiasts took to a variety of forums seeking for some sort of response or clarity. While at the similar time, Xiaomi continued to industry the phone across social media maintaining the hype alive in some type or the other. This is the initially time, it is speaking about the delay.

In an open letter to fans, Xiaomi India mentioned, “We understand that many of you are keen to buy this ultra-premium flagship smartphone. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, we regret to inform you that there will be a delay in the shipment of Mi 11 Ultra.”

That’s not to say that the news is fully out of the blue. Reports recommend, the government of India has place on hold approvals for import of completed electronic devices containing Wi-Fi modules from China for months, driving lots of brands to delay their launches. Needless to say, this effects all smartphones getting imported from China and the Mi 11 Ultra, at least as of now, is not made in India like the Mi 11X or Mi 11X Pro.

“We are working hard to bring it as soon as possible. We are hopeful that the current situation improves soon and that we should be able to communicate the sale date at the earliest.”

Essentially, the availability of Mi 11 Ultra is topic to a couple of situations which means–and if at all India’s reported curbs on mentioned Chinese solutions are spot-on–no one, not even Xiaomi can assure if its most ambitious phone will ever be sold in India.
