TL;DR: Xiaomi launches the Mi 11 Lite 4G in the Philippines for Php 14,990. Yes, its not the 5G variant.
Xiaomi launches the Mi 11 Lite in the Philippines. To everyone’s disappointment, we’re getting the 4G variant, which is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G.
The phone itself is actually not bad. Far from it. The price of Php 14,990 (cheaper here than in other countries) makes it competitive. But the fact that a 5G variant exists makes this a bit of a letdown. Maybe it will launch here soon as well.
To recall, the Mi 11 Lite 4G comes with a 6.55-inch FHD+ AMOLED DotDisplay with 2400 x 1080 resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and HDR10+ support.
It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The phone also has a reasonable 4,250mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
Around the back is a 64MP main camera with a large 1/1.97″ sensor. It’s supported by secondary cameras that include an 8MP ultra-wide and a 5MP telemacro. The selfie snapper has a 16MP sensor.
The rest of the specs include a side fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, USB-C, and LiquidCool technology.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 8GB + 128GB has a price of Php 14,990 in the Philippines. It will be available for purchase from Authorized Mi Stores and partner retailers nationwide as well as official stores in Lazada and Shopee starting April 24.
