Xiaomi has also brought the new 11 Lite 5G NE here in the Philippines.
Launched alongside the 11T series, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE is powered by a Snapdragon 778G octa-core processor coupled with a fast and vibrant 90Hz AMOLED panel. Albeit, despite the OLED screen, it has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of an in-display one.
It also comes with a decent 4,250mAh non-removable battery juiced by a 33W charger. It ships with the Android 11-based MIUI 12 operating system. Xiaomi also highlights its ultra-thin body of only 6.8mm.
Like all midrange phones, it has a pretty packed camera system. It may not have an ultra-sharp 108-megapixel sensor like the 11T series, but it does come with a 64-megapixel main shooter, and the typical 8-megapixel ultra-wide and 5-megapixel macro. There’s a 20-megapixel sensor on the front for selfies.
The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE has a starting price of Php16,990 in the Philippines for the 6GB/128GB model, Php18,990 for the 8GB/128GB, while the top-tier 8GB/256GB variant comes in at Php20,990.
Pre-ordering them from October 23 to 29 on Authorized Xiaomi Stores entitles you to a free Mi Robot Vacuum and Mi Recyclable Eco Bag valued at Php10,000. An open day sale will happen on the 30th where it will come with a limited edition wireless speaker worth Php3,250. While purchasers on the Xiaomi Global Store on Shopee from 24 to 29 will take home a free Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic.
