Xiaomi today officially unveiled the 11 Lite 5G NE smartphone, the successor to the April Mi 11 Lite 5G. There are two innovations here: firstly, there is no longer Mi in the name — all the company’s new smartphones are released without this legendary brand. Second, the 5nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G SoC has been replaced by the 6nm Snapdragon 778G. It’s a little slower in tests, but so much so that you hardly notice it. And the rest of the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE (NE stands for New Edition) is no different from the Mi 11 Lite 5G.

Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE maintains its status as the lightest 5G smartphone with a battery capacity of more than 4000 mAh: the device is 6.81 mm thick and weighs 159 grams. It received a 6.55-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD + resolution at 90 Hz, a 20-megapixel front camera, a main camera with sensors with a resolution of 64, 8 and 5 MP.

The amount of RAM is 6 or 8 GB, the amount of built-in flash memory is 128 or 256 GB. Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE runs Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 interface, 4250 mAh battery, supports 33W fast wired charging. Other features of the model include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, NFC, dust and water resistance in accordance with the IP53 degree.

The recommended retail price of new items is 370 euros for the version with 6/128 GB of memory and 400 euros for the version with 8/256 GB. There are four color options: black, blue, pink and white.
