Last December, Xiaomi launched Mi 11 as the first phone with Snapdragon 888 chipset. And now, the company has launched the Mi 11 Lite 5G as the first phone with Snapdragon 780G. In this post, we will be talking about the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G in Nepal.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G Overview:

Design and Display

Here, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite comes with a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel with an FHD+ resolution. It is a flat display with a left-aligned punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. The phone comes with a 90Hz refresh rate. The bezels around the screen are very slim. As per the company, the bezels on the top and the side are just 1.88mm thick. The chin is slightly thicker at 2.75mm.

At the back, the phone inherits the new camera module from the regular Mi 11. The module encloses a triple camera setup along with an LED flash. The 6.81mm thickness means it is among the slimmest Mi phone out there in the market. It also very light and weighs only 159g.


In terms of performance, Mi 11 Lite 5G is powered by the new Snapdragon 780G chipset. The chipset was announced just a few days before this launch. It features four Cortex A78 cores (2.4GHz + 3 x 2.2GHz) and four Cortex A55 cores (1.9GHz). Other than that, the new chipset comes with a triple ISP (Spectra 570), Snapdragon X53 5G modem and is based on Samsung’s 5nm process.

Snapdragon 780G chipset

Mi 11 Lite 5G is available in a single RAM configuration – 8GB, but users can choose between 128GB and 256GB internal storage. It ships with Android 11 out-of-the-box with MIUI 12.0 on top.

There is also a 4G variant of the Mi 11 Lite that comes with the Snapdragon 732G. It is the same processor that is used in the Redmi Note 10 Pro and the Note 10 Pro Max. The device comes with 6GB of RAM paired with either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.

Rest of the specs

The triple camera setup at the back is led by a 64MP primary camera. There is an 8MP sensor for ultrawide shots. Similarly, Xiaomi has dedicated a 5MP sensor for macro shots. Sadly, the phone doesn’t feature a telephoto lens. On the front, there is a 20MP selfie camera inside the punch-hole cutout.
