Xiaomi introduced the Mi 11 flagship to the world yesterday, and its Lite sibling will seemingly follow very soon. A device with the model number M2101K9AG and the product name “Mi 11 Lite” has been certified by the Bluetooth SIG, as well as by SIRIM – the Standard and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia.
The listings only reveal the new phone will have MIUI 12 and Bluetooth 5.2, as well as support for two SIM cards. Malaysia’s certification also tells us all the GSM and LTE frequencies that the Mi 11 Lite will work on, but nothing on 5G. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean the new phone will skip on the next-gen connectivity – the Pacific country does not have 5G networks yet and has postponed implementing 2022.
So far, we’ve heard conflicting rumors – some say the Mi 11 Lite won’t have a periscope lens, while other rumors point to a “5x camera”. Both could well be true if we get the telephoto sensor from the Mi Note 10.
There are also uncertainties around the chipset – it could be a yet unreleased Snapdragon 755G, but it could also be the non-5G Snapdragon 732G.
