Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G is all set to make its debut in India on September 29. The company posted a small teaser on Twitter, with a link to the microsite for the smartphone, which revealed the launch date of the smartphone. Now, ahead of the launch, the India price of the device and other details have been leaked online.
Tipster @Gadgetsdata suggested on Twitter that the Xiaomi 11 Lite could be made available in India in three colour options. These include White, Pink, Blue, and Black. The company will reportedly launch one more colour option later.
The Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G is already available outside India, and the tipster suggests that the device will be available at a much lower price compared to the global variant. The tipster claims that Xiaomi India will offer the new mid-range smartphone in three variants — 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage options.
The base model of the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G is tipped to cost Rs 21,999 in India, which would be surprising, considering the Mi 11 Lite is retailing at Rs 22,999 in the market. Given the upcoming version is a 5G-ready option, it is unlikely Xiaomi will price it lower. In Europe, this handset is priced at EUR 349 (approx Rs 30,300), which is for the base 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. The 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option is selling for EUR 399 (roughly Rs 34,600). If one were to take Europe prices as a benchmark, it would say safe to say Xiaomi is likely to price this above Rs 25,000 in the market.
