Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 Ultra in India back in April 2021. However, over a month later, Xiaomi is still not able to get Mi 11 Ultra units ready for sale. The company Xiaomi recently posted on Twitter apologising for the delay. However, the brand was still unable to give a concrete date as to when Mi 11 Ultra units would be ready for sale in India.

“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 the Mi 11 Ultra,” the brand said in the tweet.

Check out the tweet below.

The premium flagship Xiaomi device was launched on April 23, but has since not gone on sale even once in India. Xiaomi had until the tweet, stayed mum on the availability of the phone for six weeks. This led to many users growing frustrated over the Mi 11 Ultra’s availability.

Note that the Mi 11 Ultra is currently manufactured completely outside India. With the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, the fact that the phone has to be completely imported from overseas may be a factor for the unavailability in the country.

Unfortunately, everyone in India waiting for the Mi 11 Ultra will continue to have to wait a while longer as Xiaomi has no exact date as to when the phone can go on sale. The Mi 11 Ultra is priced starting at Rs 69,999 in India.
