This month we expect to see the Xiaomi Mi 11 family which consists of the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro anyway. Now several new Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite specifications have also appeared. According to those rumors, the device will get a new type of processor on board and a camera with five times optical zoom.
Read on after the ad.
Rumor: Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite specifications on the street
The increasingly famous Chinese source Digital Chat Station has dropped suspected specs of the Mi 11 Lite via Weibo. The device will be the most affordable of the upcoming trio, but according to the source it has interesting specifications.
For example, the device will get the ‘SM7350’ chip on board, according to the message. That is a still unknown processor from manufacturer Qualcomm. In the corridors there is speculation that it is the Snapdragon 755G. This would be the successor to the 750G chip that can be found in the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite and Samsung Galaxy A42 5G. The information about the processor is different than previously appeared on the device.
In addition, Digital Chat Station reports that the device will also be equipped with an OLED screen. We see this type more and more in affordable devices, while it was previously reserved for high-end smartphones. Such a display offers good black levels and colors that splash off the screen, while an LCD screen offers much less performance in those respects.
Finally, there is a hole for the front camera in the screen, but its resolution is still unknown. That is in line with previously published renders of the device, as shown above.
‘Periscopic zoom camera with five times optical zoom’
While the Xiaomi Mi 11 has a 108 megapixel camera on board, the 11 Lite gets a 64 megapixel sensor. In terms of resolution, we can therefore speak of a downgrade, but in the corridors there is talk of a periscopic zoom lens. This would allow you to optically zoom up to five times without loss of quality.
Such a type of module is pricey, but Xiaomi is known for its good price-performance ratio. Should that be too ambitious, the manufacturer will opt for a normal telephoto module. If you zoom with that, there will be some loss of quality, so bringing objects closer with that is less advisable.
More news on February 8
The Mi 11 has already been announced for the Chinese market, but a European release is scheduled for February 8th. There we will also hear more about Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and therefore probably the Mi 11 Lite.
