Mi 11 Lite 4G may soon launch in India, as suggested by a Xiaomi executive’s tweet. The teaser posted by Xiaomi India Marketing Lead Sumit Sonal does not share a release date or even the name of the phone but he is believed to be referring to Mi 11 Lite. Additionally, an alleged ROM for the Indian variant of the Mi 11 Lite 4G model has been spotted on Telegram. Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 Lite 5G and 4G variants at the end of March globally alongside the Mi 11 Ultra and Mi 11i.
Xiaomi has not confirmed anything about the launch of Mi 11 Lite in India, but Sonal recently tweeted “_IT_ & L_AD_D” that is believed to stand for “Lite & Loaded” — referring to the Mi 11 Lite. The tweet does not include a release date or the name of the phone. Further, a Telegram channel named MIUI Updates Tracker posted a new ROM for Mi 11 Lite 4G’s Indian variant. This ROM comes with version V22.214.171.124.RKQINXM and is based on Android 11. This suggests Xiaomi may launch the Mi 11 Lite 4G in India soon.
Xiaomi has launched Mi 11 Ultra in India and it’s the only Mi 11 series phone available in the country. Now, it seems like the company plans on bringing the Lite variant of the Mi 11 as well that it previously launched globally along with a 5G variant.
