Xiaomi recently launched the Mi 11 Ultra in India. The flagship smartphone is priced at Rs 69,999 in India, which is considerably less than what was expected. It packs the same specifications found on the Chinese model. However, the India variant of Xiaomi’s 2021 flagship misses out on getting a 67W fast charger inside the box. While the device does support 67W fast charging, it will come with a 55W fast charger instead. Users will need to purchase a 67W fast charger separately. Upon asking, Xiaomi has responded the reason for not including the 67W fast charger in the box. Let’s take a look at the reason behind Xiaomi not shipping the Mi 11 Ultra with a 67W fast charger.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra comes with a 55W fast charger in India; here’s why
Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 Ultra in India in April with 67W fast charging support. However, the India variant comes with a 55W charger in the box.
Xiaomi’s flagship smartphone comes with support for 67W wired and wireless fast charging support. However, the company decided to bundle a 55W charger with the India variant. When MySmartPrice asked, Xiaomi said that the 67W fast charger will arrive soon in India. The company is waiting for certification clearance before making the 67W fast charger available in India. It could also launch the 67W wireless charging adapter in the future. The likes of iQOO, OnePlus, OPPO, etc. continue to offer a 65W fast charger or higher in the box.
Does this mean that future Mi 11 Ultra models will get a 67W fast charger in the box upon clearance? No. Xiaomi told us that users will need to purchase the 67W charging brick separately upon its availability in the Indian market. Customers will continue to get a 55W fast charger in the box.
Using the 55W charger, you can charge your flagship Xiaomi smartphone within an hour. The 67W fast charger, on the other hand, is claimed to fully charge the phone’s 5000 mAh battery in 36 minutes.
While not being able to get a 67W fast charger in the box feels like a letdown, it surely is better than not getting a charger in the box. The likes of Samsung and Apple do not offer a fast-charging adapter in the box. Xiaomi, on the other hand, is bundling a 55W charger.
