Xiaomi has introduced a new version of the 11 Lite 5G.

The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE (New Edition) swaps the Snapdragon 780G with a Snapdragon 778G. Everything else is the same, so we’re not sure why this device had to exists. Rumors blame the global chip shortage, which seems highly plausible.


That said, everything else is the same. There’s still a 6.55-inch AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. There’s also the 64-megapixel main camera, 4,250mAh battery, and 33W fast charging.

Of course, like the original model, it’s still ultra-light and thin. Weighing only 158g and 6.81mm thick, making it one of the most compact devices in the market.



The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE starts at EUR369 (around Php21,700) for the 6GB/128GB, jumping to the 8GB model will cost you EUR30 more at EUR399 (around Php23,500). Release details in the Philippines are yet to be known. In the meantime, you can check the Mi 11 Lite 4G that’s available locally.
