The Mi 11 Lite wasn’t announced alongside the Mi 11 both at the Chinese launch event in December and the global launch event last week. Nevertheless, the phone is still coming and should arrive before the end of the first half of the year, hopefully, next month since. While we wait, a render of the phone has surfaced and it shows that Xiaomi is sticking to the same design as the standard Mi 11.
The Mi 10 Lite 5G and Mi 10 5G look nothing alike but that will not be the case with the Mi 11 Lite and Mi 11 if this render is to be believed. The two devices are so similar that if you were to turn them facedown, you won’t be able to tell them apart. Okay, that may be a stretch as size will most likely be one of the differences.
As seen in the render, the Mi 11 Lite has a flat display which many folks will appreciate. The display has a hole punch at the top left corner for the front-facing camera and there is a bit of bezel at the bottom.
On the back, the phone sports three cameras that are in a near-identical module as that of the Mi 11. You get two large sensors stacked on top of each other while the third camera which is significantly smaller is on the right with the LED flash.
The lack of a visible fingerprint scanner means that the phone has an in-display camera which confirms that the screen is AMOLED and not LCD as reported in some leaks. That should not be surprising seeing as the Mi 10 Lite 5G also has an AMOLED display.
The Mi 11 Lite should be a 5G smartphone like its predecessor which means that it will come with a processor with a 5G modem. The Mi 10 Lite 5G launched with a Snapdragon 765G processor which means we should get a better chipset for the Mi 11 Lite 5G.
While Qualcomm is yet to announce a true successor to the Snapdragon 765G, there is the Snapdragon 768G available. It is the only Snapdragon 700 series processor with Bluetooth 5.2 which the Mi 11 Lite has, so it makes sense that this may be the processor inside the phone unless Qualcomm announces a new Snapdragon 700 series chipset before the phone’s launch.
