Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite appears in an unofficial video-unboxing presentation

Expected for launch on March 29, Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite will compete with the new Galaxy A52 and A72 models from Samsung, promising simulation features at a better price.

Revealed just a few days ago, the new Galaxy A models are a bit more competitive than the South Korean manufacturer has been accustomed to so far. And this is precisely due to products like Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite, Poco X3 Pro and other devices delivered by the Chinese competition.

Mi 11 Lite is the more affordable alternative to the flagship series Xiaomi Mi 11, Mi 11 Pro and Ultra (the last two are not released yet). The phone comes equipped with a chipset from the mid-range of the Qualcomm manufacturer, Snapdragon 732G, helped with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The list of features also includes dual-SIM support, microSD slot, NFC, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi AC.

Like other models in the current mid-range, the Mi 11 Lite promises increased image clarity, obtained using FHD + resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. But unlike its more expensive rival Galaxy A72, the Mi11 Lite remains with an LCD-IPS solution.

The camera has a main sensor with 64MP resolution, 8MP ultra-wide module and another 5MP module, serving the tele-macro function or the application of DoF effects in portrait photos.

Mi 11 Lite comes without an optical stabilization system or a case protected against the penetration of water and dust, but at the price of 300 euros we can’t complain. However, for a few tens of euros more we could choose the 5G version of the phone (unconfirmed), probably based on the Snapdragon 750 chipset.

Xiaomi delivers Android version 11, in MIUI 12 interpretation.

Measuring 164 x 74 x 6 mm and weighing only 150 grams, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite still manages to offer a 4250 mAh battery and fast charging function. It remains to be seen whether the 33W AC adapter is included in the standard package, or proposed as an optional accessory.
