A correction has been made to the information that was initially leaked, with the i9-11900H reportedly having a base clock of 2.1 GHz, down from 2.5 GHz. The i7-11800H has a base clock of 1.9 GHz, down from 2.4 GHz and the i5-11400H has a base clock of 2.2 GHz, down from 2.7 GHz.
An additional insight from known leaker
also reveals a currently unknown 11260H, and states that the TDP of these CPUs will be 45W, with a 65w mode for the Core i9-11980HK to increase its base clock to 5.0 GHz.

Intel hasn’t provided an expected launch date for these processors, but the current expectation is we may see an announcement in the next few months, possibly in line with Computex.
