Rumors and News

Two major sources have oozed the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite specs facts. Consistent leaker Digital Chat Station suggested the upcoming handset will come with a Qualcomm 755G Snapdragon chipset. The name proposes that it’ll be a 5G compatible mid-range chipset. The same leaker states the handset will possess a 64MP primary snapper with a secondary camera that favors 5x ocular zoom.

Meanwhile, making these statements, they argued with a top-quality render of the handset. Though, it seems as it may be an official leak. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite may appear almost similar to the original Mi 11. It may come with one difference, just with a plane display and maybe a little larger bezel at the end. Another rumor from a less reliable source named The Pixel states the handset will be just 4G-eligible. It will come with a Full HD+ display and a 120Hz screen refresh rate. It is likely to have a blow-hole front camera in the top left corner of the display.

This provider also proposes the handset will possess the 732G Snapdragon chipset with RAM of 6GB and 128GB inner space. They suggest the handset will come up with a 65MP primary snapper supporting 8MP and 5MP extras lenses. Lastly, a few Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite rumors were also suggested by this provider. However, we’d suppose them with a grain of salt. The two major providers giving Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite details are providing pointedly different info. Therefore, we’re unwilling to take seriously any of them till more facts appear. Though from the two, Digital Chat Station has more of a top score than The Pixel one.

Obtainability and Asking Price

The Xiaomi Mi 11 didn’t arrive with its ‘vanilla’ brethren on 8 February 2021. So we’re not surefire about when we will get this cheap handset. We possibly won’t see it till March 2021. We suppose Xiaomi may want to give space to Mi 11 in the limelight earlier than other handsets join it. It is also a leak which stated that it’d land this at the end of February, but it’s from our source with a varied reputation. Therefore take it with a grain of salt.

In case of its asking price, we’ve not got any particular rumor on this. However, we can make a bumpy hint assumed Xiaomi’s history with reasonable flagship models. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite prices £299 /AU$540, about $400.  Though it is the lightest ‘Lite model of the flagship handset, the brand released. Therefore it’s a good sign of the low price that the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite will offer.

The Features We Wish in Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite

Here are some features we wish to see in the future Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. Here you will also compare other Xiaomi handsets and the latest trends in the android marketplace.

A Unique Design

We’ve seen that Xiaomi’s few most affordable handsets came up with very similar designs. They mostly land with a round-back camera shunt as the Mi 10T-Lite, Poco X3 NFC, and Redmi Note 9T have almost the same circular bump design. To indicate a novel flagship handset generation, we’d love to see Xiaomi get a unique way of offering its handsets. Imaginably we would see a similar camera shunt as in the Mi 11, or something entirely different.

Decent Camera Performance

The only communal flaw in Xiaomi’s reasonable handset is their snappers don’t match few others at the same asking price. We often list camera enactment on the brand’s inexpensive handsets as an undesirable feature in our appraisals. We’d love to see Xiaomi develop its snapper performance in the Mi 11 Lite. Maybe rather than mounting many inoperable 2MP secondary snappers, it should try to grow quality over quantity. It should design handsets with an improved lens quality-wise on the primary camera. Xiaomi low price handsets hardly land with telephoto sensors too. Regardless of them being significant for zoomed-in shots, Xiaomi can do a good job using such a gizmo.

A Smaller Design

Xiaomi is slightly a foreigner to small handsets. It hasn’t given out a solo handset at any price tag in years that can sensibly be grouped as ‘small.’ Some folks like trivial handsets, though, as they’re easy to slip in the pocket or easily use by one hand.  It is also a feature of small handsets that they often offer longer battery life too. Definitely, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite will be Xiaomi’s first small handset in good time. So it will be ready for the person who is searching for a mini handset with good specs.
