Xiaomi released the Mi 11 flagship in the final days of 2020 and rumors are pointing to two more phones joining the family – Mi 11 Lite and Mi 11 Pro. The first one is expected to be slightly less powerful and cheaper, and a leakster revealed some of the specs it might have.
According to the Chinese source, the Mi 11 Lite will have an OLED screen with a punch hole for one selfie camera, a Qualcomm SM7350 chipset, 64 MP main cam, and 5x zoom.

Each of these features looks interesting – first of all, there is no SM7350 platform by Qualcomm. Some people speculate this is a Snapdragon 755G, built on the 5 nm process technology, and its CPU will have one ultra-powerful Cortex-A78 core.
The 64 MP main cam is a downgrade from the 108 MP shooter on the Mi 11 (which is the same sensor + lens as last year’s Xiaomi Mi 10), but this time, it looks like a periscope lens will keep it company. The fancy telephoto camera is a rather expensive component, and it will be surprising to see it in a Lite-tier phone since it lacks the vanilla version.
There’s always the possibility the source got the info wrong or he’s talking about another phone, but we’ll see how this situation unfolds once Xiaomi announces the Mi 11 Lite.
