Xiaomi India has finally broken silence about the delayed shipment of its latest flagship smartphone, the Mi 11 Ultra, through its latest tweet. It claims that the phone is perpetually delayed due to circumstances beyond their control.
The Mi 11 Ultra has never been up for sale in India since its debut on April 23, and now the wait has been extended as shipments have been postponed for an indefinite period of time.
“We are working hard to bring it as soon as possible. We are hopeful that the current situation improves soon and that we should be able to communicate the sale date at the earliest”Xiaomi
This is the first time Xiaomi has announced a product and then failed to deliver for such an extended period of time. The cause for the delays could be related to India’s ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
In contrast to the flagship, the smartphones Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro, which were released with the Mi 11 Ultra, were accessible shortly after their respective releases on April 27 and May 3, respectively.
