Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE lands in India with Snapdragon 778G and a 10-bit AMOLED display

Following the official debut earlier this month in Europe, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE (New Edition) has now landed on the Indian shores. It joins the Mi 11 Lite 4G that launched in India just three months ago. The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE is identical to the Mi 11 Lite 4G in many respects, including the design, the camera setup, battery capacity and charging speed, etc. However, it’s the chipset and connectivity where the new model sets itself apart as it packs a much powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset and comes with 5G support.
