Flaunting the looks of Mi 11 Lite 4G, the new device from Xiaomi comes in Tuscany Cora, Vinyl Black, Jazz Blue, and the new Diamond Dazzle color. Further, to make things better, the device doesn’t catch fingerprint smudges. 

The new Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G is exceedingly lightweight and slim. It weighs around 158gms and is 6.8mm thick with a bit broad structure, making the device quite difficult to hold at times. Besides, the rear of the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G is made up of glass with a matte paint that helps in masking smudges.

You will find the tactile power button on the right panel and the Type-C port along with the SIM tray on the bottom. Of course, you will not find the obsolete 3.5mm headphone jack. However, the device comes with a Type-C to 3.5mm connector. 

The front of the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G looks alluring with an expansive 6.55inches display and a tiny waterdrop camera notch on the top left corner. Likewise, the rear side contains a square projection where the three camera lenses reside.

Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G boasts an enormous 6.55inches 10-bit AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution that generates a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels.

Furthermore, the beautiful display of Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G supports a refresh rate of 90Hz and a touch sampling rate of 240Hz. It assists in producing smooth motions, vivid colors, and deep blacks.

Besides the excellent resolution, Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G also has an optimum brightness that allows you to use the device under mid-day sunlight easily. 


Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G is built around the latest Snapdragon 778G SoC bandwagon. As a result, the processor delivers excellent performance for the price.

Moving on to the performance, the device is not primarily built for gaming. Instead, it is predominantly designed to provide a great multimedia experience. However, it can handle graphically less demanding games like Battlegrounds and Call of Duty. Therefore, the device can easily keep up with casual gaming without any heating issues. 

Similarly, another tempting element of Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G is the stereo speakers. It produces a loud and resonant sound that is super clear and booming in headphones. 

The new Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G includes a big 4250mAh battery, the same as the Xiaomi 11 Lite. The sturdy battery will easily last you for an entire day with medium usage. It also comes out of the box with a 33W fast charger.

Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G has a triple camera set up on the rear panel, similar to the prior Mi 11 series. It includes the 64MP primary sensor with an f/1.79 aperture which captures a decent picture with good detailing. Similarly, the device packs an 8MP ultra wide-angle sensor with an f/2.2 aperture that allows you to take expansive landscapes. Following it is the 5MP telephoto sensors with f/2.4 aperture. The depth lens work wonders when it comes to the background blur effect. 

Apart from the rear cameras, the device also has a 20MP selfie camera with an f/2.4 aperture that can take excellent selfies in a well-lit condition. However, in low light, they do not perform well and lack sharpness. On the other hand, the soft light shots of the rear camera are considerable.
