Free Xiaomi M1 11 Ultras to all Indian Olympic medalists
Indian Olympic medalists are in for a treat! Xiaomi India’s owner, Manu Kumar Jain, has announced that all of the Indian medalists at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo will be receiving a Xiaomi M1 11 Ultra.
This version is Xiaomi’s most expensive flagship to date and is also their most impressive when it comes to the device specifications. Not only are the specifications top-notch, but it also comes with a steep price. All these elements combine, pitting the M1 11 Ultra against devices such as the OnePlus 9 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Jain has also reported that Xiaomi will be giving the Indian men’s hockey team the Mi 11x rather than the M1 11 Ultra that individual medalists receive. When you view the specs of these devices, the Mi 11x is rebranded from the Redmi K40/ Poco F3. It features a Snapdragon 870 chipset, a 120Hz FHD+ OLED screen, the 48MP+8MP+5MP rear camera systems, and a 4,520mAh battery with 33W charging.
The M1 11 Ultra, on the other hand, is the first Xiaomi device with an IP68 rating. When you view specs for the M1 11 Ultra, it is also clear that it ups the ante from the M1 11x quite significantly. This device features a Snapdragon 888 chipset, a 50MP+48MP+48MP rear camera setup with a screen for selfies, 120Hz QHD+ OLED panel, and a 5,000mAh battery with 67W wired and wireless charging.
Currently, the country has seven Olympic medalists in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. It's the first time that India has managed to secure seven medals across a variety of events. And the country’s appreciation for its athletes is apparent in the latest move by Xiaomi.
Xiaomi India is really showing love to their Olympic medalists with this bold gesture. This has been a great marketing strategy on Xiaomi’s part, as the news made headlines online. I’m sure this has boosted the brand’s image even more in the eyes of the public. I look forward to seeing what happens next with the Xiaomi brand.
This is nothing more than a marketing ploy, and you completely fell for it by writing this article. And now I fell for it by reading the title and the first sentence (thankfully, I did stop there).
“OK, class, let’s spell Xiaomi.”
These are trinkets the athletes will throw into their giant Olympic trinket boxes along with lots of shoes, clothes, equipment. Huge endorsements are what they want and will get if they play the long game right. A phone? Hah!
Why not just make these weird little articles ads, since they are ads?
A Billionaire giving away a few phones.
At least say it’s an advert. Shameful.
And picture from Samsung. Otherwise, your article looks like native ad.
How is this newsworthy? Ghacks is really dropping its standards with this new recruit who seems to think that quantity trumps quality.
Why post an ad when (I suppose) you are not even paid? Seriously????
Interesting article in The Guardian this morning about the Lithuania defence ministry telling its citizens to dump Xiaomi phones because they contain censorship capabilities: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/sep/22/lithuania-tells-citizens-to-throw-out-chinese-phones-over-censorship-concerns
