Mi 11 to Not Bundle Charger Within Box, CEO Lei Jun Confirms



Mi 11 is all set to launch on Monday, December 28 and Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has now confirmed that the flagship phone’s retail box will not bundle a charger within. Jun says that this move has been adopted to succeed in its environmental goals. While reducing the carbon footprint is a wise goal to have, users who shouldn’t have an old charger at home should buy a new charger one at a time at an extra cost. Xiaomi has mimicked Apple’s strategies with this move after the latter shipped its iPhone 12 series phones without earphones and charger. Samsung could also be expected to not ship a charger with its upcoming Galaxy S21 series smartphones.

Jun took to Weibo to confirm that the upcoming Mi 11 flagship will not bundle a charger within. He added that the charger has been left out to give protection to the surroundings. Jun also contemplated on if there’s a solution that better meets industry practices and surroundings protection. The executive shared a photo of the retail box that has a thin minimalistic design with the numbers ‘11′ written in front.

The Mi 11 past leaks propose a triple camera setup at the back with a 108-megapixel main sensor. The phone is said to come in four colour finishes and is confirmed to be powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC. Leaks also indicate that the phone may pack 12GB of RAM and run on Android 11-based MIUI 12. Also, the flagship could include a QHD+ resolution together with up to 120Hz refresh rate.

Xiaomi has already confirmed an advanced display technology on the Mi 11 together with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. The pricing of the Xiaomi Mi 11 is reported to start at CNY 4,500 (kind of Rs. 50,700) for the base 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, while its 8GB RAM + 256GB mannequin could be priced at CNY 4,800 (kind of Rs. 54,000), and the top-end mannequin with 12GB RAM + 256GB storage at CNY 5,200 (kind of Rs. 58,600).
