During the last few weeks, we have been hearing about the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. The leaks and information that reaches us of this device, make us think that its launch could be closer in time than the Mi 11 Ultra leaked also a few days ago. Now, we can see the first real images of the Mi 11 Lite, confirming an almost identical design to its big brother.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite appears in its first real images
Xiaomi does not usually launch a single model of each family, and of course, the Mi 11 series was not going to be less. At the moment only the standard Mi 11 has been made official, but the Mi 11 Lite is expected to make an appearance soon. After some renders that showed its design last week, we can now see this device in the first real images, which also confirm other technical features.
We are facing the cheapest model in the series, but it will be no less interesting. Images of the device have been leaked on the Telegram channel, Xiaomi & MIUI News, and collected by the SlashLeaks portal. In these snapshots, the Mi 11 Lite can be seen in gray color, in a space that appears to be a specialized store. You can perfectly appreciate its design, the gray color, and a rear camera module similar to that of the Mi 11.
Furthermore, a screenshot reveals that the pictured handset runs MIUI 12 based on Android 11 and features 128GB RAM. However, more technical information has been accompanied, revealing that there will be a 4G variant and a second 5G version. We also know that the main sensor of both models will be 64MP. However, the source reveals a subtle difference, as it is claimed that the global model of the Mi 11 Lite will feature a third macro camera, while the Indian variant replaces that sensor with a depth sensor.
The 4G variant may reach markets where 5G development is not as developed. This makes that version of the Mi 11 Lite features the Snapdragon 720G, while Mi 11 Lite 5G would feature the Snapdragon 775G according to the leak. Versions of 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal memory are detailed, as well as a 4,250mAh battery with 33W quick charging.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite release date
Many are taking it for granted that the Mi 11 Lite will be a reality imminently. The images could reveal that the device is already in the hands of a distributor, although the firm maintains the usual silence. It is expected that Xiaomi will soon launch the first promotional messages of this Mi 11 Lite.
