Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite launch gets closer as phone receives Bluetooth SIG certification

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite global version has been certified by the Bluetooth SIG, indicating that it could be launched soon.

Highlights
  • Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite has been certified by the Bluetooth SIG 
  • The smartphone will run Bluetooth 5.2 and MIUI 12.5 out of the box
  • Mi 11 Lite specs may include a 120Hz LCD screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G SoC, three rear cameras, and 33W fast charging

We learned about some key Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite specifications back in January via a leak. The smartphone has since made several appearances online on the FCC and BIS. It has now received the Bluetooth SIG certification, indicating that it is very close to launching. A global Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite launch seems imminent, as its international version with model number M2101K9AG has been certified. In all likelihood, Xiaomi will release the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite alongside the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro in China first, before bringing it to global shores. The listing also confirms Bluetooth 5.2 functionality on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite.

Some key Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite specifications include an IPS LCD panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz. Its exact screen size and resolution are not known, but the latter will likely max out at FHD+. Furthermore, the lack of an AMOLED panel suggests that the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite will use a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The FCC listing told us that there would be one variant with 6GB of RAM. Fast charging at up to 33W is likely to be supported, too. Lastly, the smartphone will likely run MIUI 12.5 out of the box.

Moving on to the camera side of things, we’re probably looking at three rear cameras. The 64MP primary lens will be paired with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5MP macro lens. The lack of 5G connectivity is a tad disappointing, considering that the technology is becoming more mainstream as time passes. However, the aforementioned information is based on leaks, which can be incorrect at times. Mi 11 Lite chipset is unclear at the moment, but it won’t be surprising to see the phone come with 5G support.
