Early sales numbers are obvious too as Xiaomi bought the first batch of 300,000 models in precisely 5 minutes (the batch was a combine of all three models). The next sale is scheduled for March 8, Monday, though this will again be little to China.
Wider availability may be coming soon, though. Rumor has it that the Redmi Okay40 and Okay40 Professional will be bought globally beneath the Poco F3 and F3 Professional names (and as Mi 11X/11X Professional in India). The Professional+ model may be renamed Xiaomi Mi 11i instead. There is no official confirmation from the company yet and no time table or pricing for these models.
What may have Xiaomi done to beef up the Okay40 series? Optical Image Stabilization stored popping up in the comments, but we bet while you happen to want a 108MP sensor with OIS then you’ll have to accelerate for the Mi 11, which is only a bit pricier than the Okay40 Professional+.
