Xiaomi Mi 11 flagship shipments reach 3 million units worldwide
Xiaomi has announced some global Mi 11, 11 Pro and 11 Ultra sales stats for the first quarter of 2021. The OEM claims to have moved 3 million units of the flagships combined worldwide. The OEM also now claims that the 3 flagship-grade devices combined dominate their price-segment in the Chinese market.
Xiaomi is currently celebrating the sale of its 3 millionth Mi 11 unit worldwide. The OEM is referring to the series' most expensive variants: the Ultra, Pro and their vanilla counterpart. This new figure, which apparently applies to the first 3 months of 2021, may be considered particularly impressive considering only 2 of them are available globally.
The exception is the Mi 11 Pro, a phone that improves on the base model due to its new 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 main camera sensor and 6.81-inch E4 AMOLED display (although that spec is shared by the Mi 11 Ultra). It has also reportedly contributed to nine-figure revenues (in US dollars) for Xiaomi on its release in China.
Their maker also now claims that it, along with the 11 and 11 Ultra, have grabbed the largest share of the smartphone market in terms of their price-tier (4000-6000 yuan, or ~US$620-930) in their native market. Nevertheless, the flagships might even go even further in terms of shipments, as the 11 Ultra has only just launched in Europe.
Furthermore, the line has also recently acquired 11 Lite and 11i variants (even if the latter is essentially a rebranded Redmi K40 Pro+). Of these, the Lite 4G has debuted on Amazon.com for $380.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
