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 its specs.
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, 64MP main cam, and 5x telephoto snapper.

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 5nm process technology, and its CPU will have one powerful Cortex-A78 core.
The 64MP main cam is a downgrade from the 108MP 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, but Xiaomi has also been doing a conventional 5x telephoto cameras such as the one on the Mi Note 10, which will be more fitting on an upper mid-range handset.
We’ll see how this situation unfolds once Xiaomi announces the Mi 11 Lite.
