Xiaomi isn’t playing around at its Summer Holiday Sale. The phone maker has discounts and bundles on its Redmi, Poco and Xiaomi ranges, but the craziest deal of them all is the £100 discount on the incredible Xiaomi Mi 11 – which now comes bundled with a Redmi 9A if you buy the 128GB variant. That’s right: you get a bonus phone with your phone purchase. You can also opt for a free Mi Watch Lite smartwatch worth £45 if you opt for the 256GB Mi 11 variant.
The £100 discount on the Xiaomi Mi 11 is available on both the 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB configurations, which means prices on those handsets drop to £649 and £699, respectively. Meanwhile, the free Redmi 9A (available with the 128GB Mi 11) saves you another £99 were you to buy it separately from Xiaomi.
The 9A, Xiaomi’s cheapest handset, offers a humble 2GB RAM and 32GB storage alongside the entry-level MediaTek Helio G25 ARM SoC processor – you’ll find the same gears under the similarly specced Motorola E7 which also costs £99. The most attractive features of the 9A include a massive 5000mAh battery, a 6.53in 720×1600 HD+ display, and a decent 13Mp rear camera with HDR and 1080p video support (up to 60fps). The 9A is a solid budget option if you’re looking for the first handset for your child – especially now since it comes free.

The flagship Mi 11, of course, has a lot more to boast. Aside from greater storage and RAM, it comes with a 108Mp main camera, a 6.81in AMOLED display with 2K resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 colour coverage, and the big bad Snapdragon 888 chip. It’s a beastly phone which scored 4/5 stars in our review, along with a Tech Advisor Recommended badge. The Mi 11 also sits in our top 5 of the best phones on the market.

Correction: an earlier version of this article inaccurately stated Xiaomi’s Mi 11 offer included both the Redmi 9A and Watch Lite with purchase. We’ve corrected this detail to clarify the Redmi 9A is available only with the Mi 11 128GB purchases, while the Mi Watch Lite is only available with the Mi 11 256GB purchases.
