Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE Review

Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE is minimally different from the original 5G version of the smartphone. Underneath its casing, you'll find the Snapdragon 778G 5G (6nm). In addition, you should know that the screen supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, just not protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 6, but with version 5.

Visually, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE is no different from the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite and Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G. You will like it for its light weight and convenience during operation. The juicy picture on the screen will catch your attention. Another plus point is the colorful body. The device is available in green, blue, yellow, soft pink and more.

The screen diagonal is 6.55 inches. It has a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and has an aspect ratio of 20:9. The pixel density per inch is high at 402 pixels. As a result, you'll enjoy an excellent experience whether you're watching videos, photos, surfing the web, or playing games.


Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset. It features a set of cores - four Kryo 670 clocked at 2.4 GHz and four Kryo 670 clocked at 1.8 GHz. Its memory pleases with speed, and the 90 Hz frequency contributes to the smoothness when interacting with the smartphone.

In terms of communications, the Kryo 670 is packed to the max. The loudspeakers delight with high sound. The microphones handle the filtering of extraneous noises. We see Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6 and an infrared port available, which allows you to use the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE as a remote control.


The smartphone is equipped with an attractive and modern set of cameras. On the rear panel, you will find a triple block. The main camera there is a 64-megapixel, wide-angle and f/1.8 aperture. It's complemented by an 8-megapixel module with a 119-degree viewing angle and a 5-megapixel telemacro module. Impressively, the 5-megapixel lens can work both as a telephoto and macro lens. You'll be pleased with the decent performance of the rear camera.

The front in turn is single, 20-megapixel and wide-angle. Get ready for exciting group shots and advanced modes to edit your footage.
