Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE to launch on September 29 in India

The phone was recently launched globally with Snapdragon 778G

Recently, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE launched in the global market, and this phone is exactly the same as Mi 11 Lite 5G except for one thing, and that’s the SOC. This newer device has the Snapdragon 778G instead of the Snapdragon 780G that the Mi 11 Lite 5G had. Earlier this month, we got to know via a source that Xiaomi will launch the 11 Lite 5G NE in India for a starting price of under Rs 25,000, but we did not have any information on the launch date. Today, Xiaomi announced on its official social media handles that the phone is coming to India on the 29th of September.

So, we still have almost two weeks for the launch, but since the phone is already official in Europe, there is nothing that we don’t know. It has a 6.55-inch AMOLED with a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support. The display also gets the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Under the hood, there is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SOC which we have seen on phones such as the Realme GT Master Edition and the Motorola Edge 20, both of which are priced above Rs 25,000 in India. There is a 64MP + 8MP + 5MP triple camera array on the back, and the phone has a 4,250mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging.

While we know that the starting price will be under Rs 25,000, we are still excited to know what exactly is the starting price.
