The Mi 11 Lite 5G has made its way to the Google Play Console, following last month's global release of the Mi 11. According to Xiaomi Firmware Updater, Xiaomi will sell the Mi 11 Lite 5G in China, the EU, Turkey, Indonesia, Russia and Taiwan. The device will also be available on MIUI's global branch, so it will probably be available to purchase in other markets like the UK, too. Additionally, there will be a 4G model, so we would not be surprised if Xiaomi uses a different SoC than the one presented in the screenshot below for the 5G model.
Speaking of SoCs, the Google Play Console listing states that Xiaomi has equipped the Mi 11 Lite 5G with a Qualcomm SM7250, the codename for the Snapdragon 765G. Previously, Digital Chat Station had suggested that Xiaomi would use the upcoming Snapdragon 775G, but the Snapdragon 765G would put the Mi 11 Lite on par with the Mi 10 Lite 5G that it released last year.
Additionally, the listing reports that the Mi 11 Lite has 8 GB of RAM and a 2,400 x 1,080-pixel display, along with a 20:9 aspect ratio. The Google Play Console states that the display has a 400 PPI pixel density too, which would correlate with a 6.58-inch panel size, assuming the 2,400 x 1,080 resolution is correct.
Again, these specifications would put the Mi 11 Lite 5G on par with its predecessor, albeit with a bump to Android 11 over the Android 10 OS with which Xiaomi ships the Mi 10 Lite 5G. Apparently, Xiaomi will equip the Mi 11 Lite 5G with better cameras than the Mi 10 Lite 5G, but that would be a poor generational upgrade if the company refrains from including a more powerful SoC or a high refresh rate display, in our opinion.
