The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G and 5G variants are already available in select markets, with the former being available in India currently. There are speculations the company might unveil the 5G variant in the country soon. Now, amidst the anticipation, noted Xiaomi tipster Kacper Skrzypek claims the company is working on another Mi 11 Lite variant for the Indian market, dubbed as the Mi 11 Lite NE. According to him, the NE variant is codenamed ‘Lisa’ and has the model number 2109119DI. The handset is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset.

A phone with a similar model number had received the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification. It’s possible that Xiaomi may discontinue the Mi 11 Lite 4G as reported recently and introduce the Mi 11 Lite NE (new era?). This means that Xiaomi, instead of launching the Mi 11 Lite 5G with Snapdragon 780G, will be using the Snapdragon 778G chipset. There are chances the Mi 11 Lite NE may use similar hardware as the Mi 11 Lite 5G. That’s pretty much everything about the Mi 11 Lite NE at the moment but we should learn more information soon if it’s indeed in the works.
