Mi 11 Ultra shipments have been delayed in India, Xiaomi has announced. This means that there is no nearby first sale date for the flagship phone that was announced in the Indian market over a month ago. Mi 11 Ultra was announced in India in April alongside Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro. Back then the company had said that a sale date will be announced soon, but that hasn't happened yet. Now, Xiaomi says that they will only be able to share details of a sale date when the “situation improves.”
Xiaomi on Wednesday tweeted about the delay of Mi 11 Ultra sale in India. The shared letter reads, “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 shipments of Mi 11 Ultra.” The company says that it is trying hard to bring it into the India market as soon as possible and will only be able to offer an exact sale date once the “current situation improves soon.” Xiaomi could be facing supply and production difficulties due to coronavirus-induced lockdowns imposed across the country.
