Recently, a report started hovering online that claims that Mi 11 Lite 4G has been discontinued in India to launch the 5G version. But later on, Xiaomi claimed that the report was false. Mi 11 Lite 4G won’t be discontinued in India. Well, as for the 5G version, it’s available in selected countries globally, and Indian fans were eagerly waiting for the device to debut in India. The rumors tell that Xiaomi might launch the Mi 11 Lite 5G in India.
Now, a new report coming from the leakster Kacper Skrzypek claims that Xiaomi is working on a new variant of the existing Mi 11 Lite. The upcoming new variant of Mi 11 Lite has the codename “Lisa.” The device will have the marketing name Mi 11 Lite NE 5G and has model number 2109119DI. The tipster further claims it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G chipset. The tipster mentioned that the device has the same marketing name, at least in India.
Hinting towards the imminent launch, the same Xiaomi device with the same model number has already been listed on the BIS certification of India. The original Mi 11 Lite 5G, which debuted in the global market, comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G 5G chipset. There might be a high possibility that Xiaomi will launch the Mi 11 Lite NE in India as a replacement for the Mi 11 Lite 5G for Indian consumers. Apart from this, we don’t have much information to share about the device.

Besides India, the Mi 11 Lite NE 5G will also arrive in the global market. The global model number 2109119DG has been registered with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) in Russia. It has also been listed on Google One Membership’s T&C page.
But we strongly expect that it will bring the same specifications when compared to the Mi 11 Lite 5G but with a different processor. To give you a point of view, Mi 11 Lite 5G offers specifications like a 6.5-inches 10-bit 90Hz AMOLED Display with 800 nits of peak brightness, 64MP+8MP+5MP triple rear camera setup, 20MP front selfie shooter, 4250mAh battery with 33W fast wired charging support.
