Xiaomi 12 Lite coming to India soon, Mi 11 Lite tipped to be discontinued

Xiaomi 12 Lite India launch date is yet to be revealed.

Highlights
  • Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite is said to be discontinued in India soon.
  • The handset will be replaced by the Xiaomi 12 Lite which debuted globally recently.
  • Xiaomi 12 Lite specs include Snapdragon 778, a 120Hz AMOLED display, 67W fast charging and Android 12 OS.

Xiaomi 12 Lite launched earlier this month globally as a successor to the Xiaomi 11 Lite. It is the brand’s premium mid-range offering and ships with Snapdragon 778G chipset. Now, tipster Paras Guglani claims the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite will be discontinued/removed from official stores very soon. This is because the Xiaomi 12 Lite will be launched in India and it doesn’t make any sense to have the dated 4G model in stock. The Mi 11 Lite was well received and the key USP of the phone is its thin and lightweight profile.

While Xiaomi hasn’t mentioned the timeline for the Xiaomi 12 Lite but we can speculate it might debut in the next few weeks and should be priced aggressively. Furthermore, tipster Paras Guglani says the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite NE 5G will continue to be available even after the Xiaomi 12 announcement.
