The source reports that Xiaomi is preparing to release a new smartphone, codenamed Lisa, which is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778GB single-chip system.

It is reported that this smartphone should be released under the market name Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE, but it is not yet known what the NE letters in the name mean. The original Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite smartphone was built on the basis of the Snapdragon 780G single-chip system.

The Snapdragon 778G mobile platform is manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm process. This platform includes eight Kryo 670 cores with a maximum frequency of 2.4GHz and a 40% improvement in CPU performance over the previous generation. The Adreno 642L GPU also delivers a 40% performance boost.

In terms of AI performance, the Snapdragon 778G features Qualcomm’s sixth-generation AI processor (Hexagon 770), which is twice the performance of the previous generation processor.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE is reported to be released in the second half of the year. Given the information about the refusal of Xiaomi from the Mi brand in the names of new smartphones, the device should be called Xiaomi 11 Lite NE.
