Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE is set to launch in India soon and it will arrive as a 5G version of the Mi 11 Lite 4G that launched in India earlier this year. Xiaomi will be announcing the new smartphone in India on September 29th, within two weeks of its global debut. The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE was recently announced globally alongside the Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro. The specifications and the global price have been revealed already, but there’s a new leak tipping us about the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE price in India.
Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE India price tipped to start from Rs 21,999
Tipster Debayan Roy suggests that the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE will be coming in three storage variants – 6+128 GB, 8+128 GB and 8+256 GB. The base storage variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage will retail for Rs 21,999; however, there’s no word on the pricing of the other two variants. The smartphone is expected to be available in four colour options which could be the same as the global market – Truffle Black, Bubblegum Blue, Peach Pink, and Snowflake White. The three of the colour options will be available initially, with the fourth one coming later sometime. He further suggests that Xioami will be discontinuing the 8+128 GB storage variant of the Mi 11 Lite 4G while the base variant will be retailing at a new price of Rs 19,990. To recall, Mi 11 Lite 4G was launched in India for Rs 21,999.
Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE leaked price in India could be wrong
The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE leaked price in India suggests Xiaomi will launch the device at an incredibly aggressive price tag, undercutting its own Mi 11 Lite 4G model. However, considering the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE is priced over Rs 30,000 globally, it seems unlikely for the brand to bring the phone to India at Rs 21,999. We expect the phone to arrive between Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000 in the country.
