Xiaomi offers many smartphones that look alike, as evidenced by the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE, an almost carbon copy of the Mi 11 Lite 5G. This does not prevent it from being a quality phone, which today sees its price drop to 289 euros instead of the 369 euros on the brand’s official website.
The Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE is one of these new smartphones from the Chinese brand that has removed the “Mi” label. But apart from the name change, it doesn’t really differ much from the classic old model Mi 11 Lite 5G, except at the level of the integrated SoC. Therefore, we once again find a good value for money, which today improves thanks to a saving of 80 euros on the initial price of the phone.
The data sheet of the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE
- A 6.55-inch 90Hz Full HD AMOLED display
- A powerful Snapdragon 778G supported by 6GB of RAM
- A versatile camera thanks to three sensors on the back
- A 4250 mAh battery for a full day of use
Instead of the usual 369 euros, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE -in its version with 128 GB of storage- is now available on sale for only 289 euros in Mi Store thanks to an immediate discount of 30 euros and a ODR of 50 euros. It is also found in pack at 319 euros in Fnac, with the wireless headphones Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic, valued at 49.99 euros.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G is also on sale for 10 euros less than the NE version in the Mi Store, but only in yellow. The same ODR as before must be applied to obtain this price.

Almost the same smartphone as the Mi 11 Lite 5G
The Chinese brand has not made too much effort to differentiate its Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE, since it is almost the same smartphone as the Mi 11 Lite 5G launched shortly before. We found the same template with a diagonal of 6.55 inches and the same AMOLED screen showing a Full HD + definition of 2400 x 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. However, keep in mind that this smartphone loses 1 gram in compared to the ‘other and that is protected on the front by Gorilla Glass 5, instead of Gorilla Glass 6 on the classic Mi 11 Lite 5G.
For the photo, we obviously see the same device consisting of a 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide and a 5-megapixel macro, not to mention the 20-megapixel front camera. Not surprising then for this composition, but it still offers great versatility, special mention for portrait and macro modes, while still delivering decent quality of captured images. The result is a little less satisfactory at night, but it is quite normal for this price band.
The autonomy is also the same between the two smartphones, since the 11 Lite 5G NE is also equipped with a 4,250 mAh battery capable of withstanding a whole day with intensive use. Therefore, you will need to recharge it every night or every morning, whichever is convenient for you. In addition, the 33W fast charge allows you to quickly recover percentages: from 6 to 100% in just 1 hour.
A difference in the SoC, but no power
If the classic Mi 11 Lite 5G integrates a Snapdragon 780G, this NE version adopts a somewhat less powerful Qualcomm processor to lower the bill a few euros. This is the Snapdragon 778G, but the raw performance is almost identical. This configuration supports 6GB of RAM and allows you to enjoy a smooth user experience, as well as a gaming experience that is the same, even with graphics pushed to the limit in some games.
If the design does not change fundamentally, the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE however has the particularity of bringing new colors that are a bit more striking, from bubblegum blue to peach pink and glossy white. Therefore, the Chinese brand has given itself a little more fantasy for those who do not use a transparent protective layer.
