Christmas offers and sales are upon us, so if you missed out on Black Friday savings you still have another shot at finding a discount on a Xiaomi Mi 11 phone.
We saw up to £200 off the 128GB version of Mi 11 on Amazon through November sales. Unfortunately, that offer is no longer available but you can still buy the 128GB phone at the official Mi Store for £150 off at £599. That's still incredible value for a flagship phone.
It's worth noting that Xiaomi has started its Christmas sale where its offering an additional £10 discount on purchases over £200. You'll just have to use the code 2021XMAS10 at checkout. Xiaomi's also bundling the Mi 11 256GB with a pair of Mi True Wireless Earphones 2S.
Step down to the mid-range Mi 11 Lite and there are some great deals to be found, from Mobile Phones Direct's super bundle that combines a free Nintendo Switch with the Mi 11 Lite 5G, to Amazon's £87 discount.
Of course, we recognise that it's often more practical to get your new phone on a contract than paying up front for it - even if it will cost you more in the long run - so we've done the hard work for you and tracked down all the best Christmas deals on the Mi 11 range, both on contract and SIM-free.
You may know already, but the Mi 11 was the first handset in the world to use the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. It launched alongside the Mi Watch, Mi Watch Lite, and a Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 edition Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2.
Don't confuse the Mi 11 with the similar-sounding budget Mi 11T and 11T Pro - those phones were the follow-up to the Mi 11 range.

Like the Mi 11 Ultra, the Mi 11 Lite is only available in one configuration: 8GB RAM + 128GB storage for £399. However, there is a new Mi 11 Lite 5G NE version, which costs the same amount where available (it's basically the same phone, with a new processor).
About the Mi 11 range - Which phones can I buy in the UK?
The full range includes seven phones: The Mi 11, 11 Pro, 11 Ultra, 11 Lite, 11 Lite 5G, 11 Lite 5G NE and 11i. While the UK gets the Mi 11, 11 Lite 5G, and 11 Lite 5G NE (and apparently the Mi 11 Ultra too), the rest of Europe gets an additional 4G Mi 11 Lite and the Mi 11i. Availability breaks down like this:
- Mi 11 - UK & Europe
- 11 Ultra - UK & Europe
- 11 Lite 5G - UK & Europe
- 11 Lite 5G NE - UK & Europe
- 11 Lite 4G - Europe
- 11i - Europe
- 11 Pro - China only
The Mi 11 offers a 6.81in AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 2K (3200x1440) resolution – a first for Xiaomi. Other features include a 4600mAh battery suited to 55W fast charging and 50W wireless charging and a 108Mp main camera. See our full review of the Mi 11, where it received 4/5 stars and a Tech Advisor Recommended badge.
Both the Ultra and Pro will offer the Snapdragon 888 processor and up to 12GB RAM. Like the Mi 11, you can expect 2K quad-curved 120Hz AMOLED panels on both phones, but a larger 5000mAh battery (compared to the Mi 11's 4600mAh) that supports wired and wireless fast charging at 67W.
The Mi 11 Pro will also offer a 50Mp main camera, 13Mp ultrawide, and an 8Mp 'telemacro' lens with OIS. The 11 Ultra will offer a 48Mp main camera, and most notably, a mini display on the rear camera module that doubles as a viewfinder, so that the main camera can be used for selfies.
