Until then very discreet, the future Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite has been the subject of a leak signed Digital Chat Station. According to him, the mid-range will opt for a flat screen and not a curved one, as well as a fingerprint sensor placed on the side.
Until then, Xiaomi has mainly focused its communication on its new flagship at the start of the year, the Xiaomi Mi 11. Tested and approved by the editorial staff, this top of the range should undoubtedly be accompanied by a Pro version , Ultra and Lite, like its predecessor.
The first variant has already given signs of life several times via various leaks, and should benefit from one of the most powerful fast charging on the market. The second version has even been the subject of a grip that teaches us a lot about it, while the third version is more discreet.
Goodbye curved screen
It was without counting on Digital Chat Station (relayed by Android Authority), which used its usual channel (Weibo) to leak potential renderings of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. As a reminder, it is at this leaker Chinese that we owe the predictions of the WQHD + screen and the 120 Hz refresh rate of the classic Mi 11. Which proved to be true later.
According to him, the Mi 11 Lite will turn its back on the curved screen to instead display a flat panel. Logically, the side borders would be slightly thicker. Another change: the location of the fingerprint sensor, which would no longer be under the screen, but on the side – probably under the power button.
A priori, the look of the back cover would not change. On the other hand, we could expect different photo sensors in terms of characteristics, as already noted between the Mi 10 and the Mi 10 Lite. These two models did not however stand out in terms of their display technology with OLED on both sides.
Xiaomi could therefore apply the same formula by once again reserving OLED for its Lite version. On the other hand, the QHD definition could be abandoned in favor of the lower notch, the FHD. What about the processor? It is logically expected that the Snapdragon 888 will no longer be in order to be replaced by a more midrange-oriented chip.
