Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE: European pricing and specifications leak for revised Mi 11 Lite 5G handset
Xiaomi may be content with teasing the 11T and 11T Pro as much as possible at the moment, most recently by promising three OS updates for the pair. However, it is no secret that the company has other smartphones ready to release globally, too. Unfortunately, Xiaomi fans must make do with a revised Mi 11 Lite, rather than a Mix 4.
Since Xiaomi has dropped its 'Mi' branding, the new handset will arrive as the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE, with NE seemingly short for New Edition. Currently, Xiaomi is expected to reveal the handset on September 15 alongside the 11T series, albeit without any of their attention-grabbing features.
Instead, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE will offer a Snapdragon 778G SoC, 128 GB of storage and four cameras, including a 64 MP primary rear-facing one. The leak from @_snoopytech_ adds that the device will debut with Android 11 while retaining the design of the Mi 11 Lite. Xiaomi has also recently certified the 11 Lite 5G NE with the NBTC, explicitly linking its marketing name to its 2109119DG model number.
Reputedly, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE will launch for €329, €40 less than the Mi 11 Lite 5G. In fact, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G Ne will be closer to the Mi 11 Lite 4G in price, which Xiaomi unveiled simultaneously with the 5G model. Incidentally, Xiaomi will release the device as the 11 Lite NE in India, indicating that this may be a 4G version.
