Its face looks much more sympathetic compared to some competitors on the market. The width of the bezels has been reduced as much as possible, as has the width of the body.

As mentioned earlier, Xiaomi mi 11 lite has a large display. It has received an AMOLED matrix with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. The refresh rate is 90 Hz. Although the matrix is not of the highest quality, the picture is beautiful and modern. We should also note that the colours are as natural as possible. The aspect ratio of the screen is among the most popular on the market - 20:9. It occupies almost 86% of the front panel area, which is a slightly lower result than usual. In order to have a sturdy front glass for a longer time, the manufacturer has relied on Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Performance

Xiaomi mi 11 lite is equipped with a chipset from Qualcomm - Snapdragon 732G. It is one of the most used in modern smartphones. You can also find it in the Redmi Note 10 Pro and Galaxy A52 models. The processor is 8-core - there are two cores Kryo 470 Gold with an operating frequency of 2.3 GHz and six cores Kryo 470 Silver with a frequency of 1.8 GHz.

There are two variants of Xiaomi mi 11 lite available in the market- with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. There is a separate slot that the user can use if he needs more storage space for music, videos, photos and other information. The graphics processor is the Adreno 618.

Cameras

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite features 3 cameras on the rear panel. The main module is a 64-megapixel, wide-angle with f/1.8 aperture and PDAF. The ultrawide-angle module is 8 MP, 119 degrees and 8 MP aperture. For macro shots, you have a 5 MP module with f/2.4 aperture and AF. It is also responsible for creating the Bokeh effect.

The rear camera has not bad specs. A dual LED dual tone flash is provided for higher quality photos. The camera app is standard and will be intuitive to use for anyone who has used a Xiaomi smartphone before.

The front camera is a single 16 MP. With both it and the rear one, you can take quality videos at 1080 pixels resolution at 30 frames per second. The rear one also supports 4K videos.

Autonomous operation

Underneath the slim body of Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite lies a 4250 mAh battery. Tests show that with its charge, you can work moderately almost around the clock. A more serious load will require recharging. For example, if you watch video without interruption, prepare the charger after about 13 hours. Surfing the web at maximum screen brightness will discharge the battery in less time.
