We’re not certain how Xiaomi can hold uninterrupted manufacturing of so many telephones with the continuing world chip shortages. However we’re glad issues are working properly for them up to now.
The Mi 11 Lite 5G has already earned our advice, and we hope its cheaper model to be simply nearly as good. The light-weight Mi 11 Lite, similar to the Mi 11 Lite 5G, is formed after the Mi 11 flagship and focuses on comparable options – an HRR OLED display screen, gratifying digicam high quality, lengthy battery life, quick charging, and total clean UI expertise.
We’re glad to see Xiaomi has thoughtfully handpicked the options that matter probably the most. The 6.55-inch OLED is of nice high quality with 10-bit coloration assist, HDR10 certification, and a 90Hz refresh price. There may be additionally 240Hz contact sampling, which is one other requirement for a clean expertise.
The triple digicam on the again can be paying homage to the Mi 11’s and the identical as on the Mi 11 Lite 5G – there’s a high-res 64MP major, an 8MP ultrawide snapper, and a 5MP telemacro cam.
