Mi 11 Lite will launch in India on June 22, Xiaomi has revealed. While the company has not confirmed if it will launch the 4G or the 5G variant, or both, it is expected to bring the Mi 11 Lite 4G on June 22. Besides the launch information, no other details have been shared. Mi 11 Lite debuted globally at the end of March this year alongside the 5G variant. The Indian variant of Mi 11 Lite may come in two storage configurations.
Xiaomi on Wednesday tweeted through its Mi India account that Mi 11 Lite will launch in the country on June 22 at 12pm (noon). As of now, it is unclear if there will a virtual event for the launch or will just be an announcement. This will likely be the 4G variant of the phone but it could just be that the company launches both the 4G and 5G variant together, though this seems unlikely.
Mi 11 Lite price (expected)
Mi 11 Lite starts at EUR 299 (roughly Rs. 26,600) and for the 6GB + 64GB storage variant. There is also a 6GB + 128GB storage option. Indian pricing for phones is relatively cheaper than European pricing so the phone could be priced under Rs. 25,000.
Mi 11 Lite is expected to carry the same specifications in India as the global variant.
