Xiaomi has launched a couple of new additions to the Mi 11 family, including the camera-centric powerhouse Mi 11 Ultra and trendy-looking Mi 11 Lite, which is available in 4G and 5G versions.

There’s also the Xiaomi Mi 11i, a rebadged Redmi K40 Pro Plus for international markets and a clear middle child between the Mi 11 Lite and Mi 11 Ultra. Celestial Silver (which looks similar to the OPPO Reno 5 5G‘s Galactic Silver option), Frosty White, and Cosmic Black, for those who prefer subtle, timeless designs.

It’s also a slight downgrade from the regular Xiaomi Mi 11, which officially retails at P36,990 (around $764) in the Philippines. In this article, we’ll compare the Mi 11 and Mi 11i because they share some of the same specs, but the latter arrives with a more palatable price tag.

Which brings us to this…

Xiaomi Mi 11i price

The Mi 11i is available in two storage options — 128GB and 256GB. The base model costs €649 (P36,996), while the higher-end configuration is €699 (P39,847). Regardless of which model you choose, you’ll get 8GB RAM and Android 11-based MIUI 12 right out of the gate. If you can spare some money, we highly recommend opting for the more expensive variant because the Mi 11i doesn’t come with a microSD card slot for storage expansion.

According to Xiaomi’s local arm, pricing and availability details for its newly announced products will be made available at a later date, but expect the Mi 11i to be cheaper in the Philippines than in Europe due to taxes and other fees, assuming it does end up here.
