Alongside the Mi 11T series, Xiaomi also launched the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE (New Edition) at its recently held global launch event. The phone joins the already announced Mi 11 Lite 5G and Mi 11 Lite 4G as the third mid-range phone in the Xiaomi 11 series.
Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE maintains the design of the other 11 Lite phones. It is light and pretty slim, weighing 158 grams and measuring 6.81 millimeters in thickness. Xiaomi also states that the top and side bezels are razor-thin at just 1.8 millimeters.
The phone shares most of its specs with the Mi 11 Lite 5G save for the processor. So you get a 6.55-inch FHD+ 90Hz AMOLED display with a 1080p resolution, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision. There is a centered punch hole that houses a 20MP camera and it also has a 360º ambient light sensor.
Xiaomi has replaced the Snapdragon 780G processor with a Snapdragon 778G and it comes with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. For the cameras, you still get a 64MP primary rear sensor, an 8MP ultrawide angle camera, and a 5MP telemacro camera.
The phone is fueled by 4250mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging. Xiaomi says it will ship the phone with a 33W power brick. The phone also has NFC, stereo speakers, a Z-axis linear motor, an IR blaster, Dual SIM support, WiFi 6, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and Bluetooth 5.2. It will run MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11 out of the box.
