The manufacturer Xiaomi has lifted the veil on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite, for the occasion available in 4G and 5G version. Here is a detailed presentation of these two new mid-range smartphones.
The Xiaomi Mega Launch was the opportunity for the Chinese manufacturer to reveal a plethora of new products, from the Mi 11 Ultra to the Mi 11i, including the Mi 11 Pro, the Mi Smart Band 6 connected bracelet and the Mi Smart Projector 2 video projector. Pro. But not only. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite also had its heyday.
AMOLED and 90 Hz
This Lite version has been available in two versions: 4G and 5G. Let’s start with the similarities observed between these two variants. Their 6.55-inch flat screen takes advantage of AMOLED display technology, which will therefore provide an infinite contrast ratio. The refresh rate reaches 90 Hz, compared to 120 Hz on the classic Xiaomi Mi 11.
The Mi 11 Lite 4G and 5G also benefit from the same battery capacity: 4250 mAh, accompanied by a fast charge of 33 W. Again, this Lite iteration makes a small concession by abandoning the 55 W charge that the Mi 11 enjoys. At the back, the two cousins carry the same triple photo sensor:
- 64 megapixel main module (f / 1.79);
- 8 megapixel ultra wide-angle (f / 2.2);
- 5 megapixel macro sensor (f / 2.4).
So much for the similarities, now it’s time to play the differences. The Mi 11 Lite 4G is slightly lighter with its 157 grams, but less resistant to scratches with its Gorilla Glass 5 protective glass. In front, the Mi 11 Lite 5G weighs 159 grams and sports a Gorilla Glass 6 on the front .
We can consider them here as featherweights, all accentuated by a beautiful fineness of 6.81 mm. Their handling should prove to be very pleasant.
A more powerful processor on the 11 Lite 5G
Logically, the two phones do not carry the same processor: the Snapdragon 732G for the Mi 11 Lite 4G, against a Snapdragon 780G freshly unveiled on the Mi 11 Lite 5G, which will benefit from very good performance, but also and above all from the 5G thanks to a dedicated modem.
Another small difference: the Mi 11 Lite 4G offers a 3.5mm jack, which its 5G counterpart does not have. The front camera also differs: 16 megapixels for the first named, against 20 megapixels for the second. In terms of RAM and storage configurations, small differences are also observed:
- Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G : 6 + 64 Go ou 6 + 128 Go
- Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G : 6 + 128 Go ou 8 + 128 Go
The Mi 11 Lite 4G will be available in Boba Black, Peach Pink, Bubblegum Blue, while the Mi 11 Lite 5G is available in Truffle Black, Mint Green, Citrus Yellow. They will be launched at European prices of 229 and 369 euros respectively. Their French price list could change slightly.
