Last year’s Xiaomi Mi 10 is one of the “longest” digital series in Xiaomi’s history. By longest, we mean the series with more models. Now, there are reports that the Xiaomi Mi 11 series will also be a “long” series. In addition to the Xiaomi Mi 11, Mi 11 Pro, and probably Mi 11 Pro+, there will also be a Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. According to reports, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite recently appeared on the Bluetooth SIG website. The model number of the smartphone indicates that it is for the global market.
This does not mean that this device will not arrive in China or India, it might just use another name. Looking at the renders of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite (Youth Edition), it will use the same design as the Xiaomi Mi 11. On the front, it has a punch-hole on the top left corner. However, its bezels are slightly thicker. On the rear, this device also uses a matrix camera module but with a triple camera setup. It retains the dual-curve rear design of the Xiaomi Mi 11 for a better grip.
On the SIRIM certification website, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite model number is M2101K9AG model. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite will support Bluetooth 5.2 connection, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, NFC, GPS, and VoLTE. This smartphone already has a couple of certifications including FCC, NBTC, EEC, BIS, and more. The FCC certification shows that this device will come with a 4150 mAh battery, 6GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB storage options.
According to early speculations, this smartphone will come with a mid-range Qualcomm chip. It will use the new Snapdragon 775G SoC. There are also reports that it could come with the Snapdragon 732 SoC. This chip uses the 6nm manufacturing process with a “4+4” octa-core architecture. It has a 2.4GHz A77 core and the GPU is Adreno 640. According to reports, the test score of the engineering model exceeds 600,000 points. This is quite fair for a 6nm chip.
Furthermore, the new Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite (Youth Edition) will probably launch in the global market around March. This device will be available in 6GB+64GB, 6GB+128GB, and 8GB+128GB versions. As for the colours, it will have a pink, black and blue colour options. While it will first launch in the global market, it will enter the Chinese market much later. In terms of pricing, it should cost around $350.
