Xiaomi has not updated its flagship Mi Mix series smartphone for more than two years now. However, rumors on the web suggest that Xiaomi might bring back the Mi Mix series. The Mi 11 Pro will be released soon, but only in China.
Mi 11 Pro releases in China only
On Sunday, March 28, GizmoChina reports that a Twitter account Xiaomiui (@xiaomiui), posted that the Mi 11 Pro will not be released internationally as it will only be available in China.
In a quoted response from the original tweet, the account states that Mi MIX will also be exclusively sold in China. Nonetheless, both devices will be announced at the global event.

However, the account did add that the Mi 11 Ultra will be available worldwide, including India, in reply to a question under the original tweet.

This is good news for those who wanted the Mi 10 Ultra but couldn't get their hands on it. There is a possibility that availability could differ over time and in different markets.
The Mi 11 Ultra is not the only phone available outside of China that launches tomorrow. The Mi 11 Lite will also be launched in 4G and 5G variants for worldwide markets.
Mi Mix news
According to PocketLint, reports have been circulating online that the brand will be resuming the Mi Mix series with not just a large display but a folding one.
Speculation suggests the phone could be referred to as the Mi Mix 4 Pro Max or the Mi Mix Fold, the latter of which sounds likely.
Xiaomi has confirmed that it will launch the Mi Mix series again. The brand confirmed that the launch would take place on Monday, March 29 via its Weibo handle, and the new Mix phone would be launched along with the Mi 11 Ultra.
Earlier leaks indicated that the Mi Mix Fold could feature a folding display on its outside. However, newer leaks indicate the display could fold inward. The phone could resemble the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2.
Not much is known about the phone's screen, but leaked images suggest that a crease will run down the screen's center.
The device is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and will have 12GB or 16GB RAM coupled with 256GB or 512GB of internal storage. The device will house a 4,500mAh battery that will be supported by 65W fast wired charging.
As for the camera optics, an image of the device revealed a triple camera configuration. This system would comprise a 50 MP sensor and a 48 MP sensor with ultra-wide coverage, and an additional 48 MP camera with a 5X or 2X optical zoom.
It is unknown whether the Mi Mix Fold or whatever it ends up being called will make it to international markets, including India.
