What is different is that you get a smaller Full HD+ AMOLED display on the Mi 11i, along with a slightly smaller battery with 33w charging speeds. In addition, you get a downgraded ultra-wide-angle camera in exchange for a telemacro camera with autofocus.

Those looking for a more affordable Mi 11 phone can go for the Mi 11 Lite. Available in 4G and 5G flavors, the Mi 11 Lite gets an even more compact 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED panel with a decent 90hz refresh rate. Powering it is a Snapdragon 732G for the 4G version and Snapdragon 780G for the 5G variant. Both variants are powered by a 4250mAh battery with support for Xiaomi’s 33w wired charging.

Like the Mi 11i, both 4G and 5G versions of the Mi 11 Lite comes with a 20-megapixel selfie snapper and a triple rear camera setup: 64-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and 5-megapixel telemacro camera.

While it is the most affordable Mi 11 variant, the Mi 11 Lite 5G is touted as one of the slimmest 5G phones at 6.81mm.
