The Mi 11 Lite is the most affordable phone in the Mi 11 lineups. The handset which combines great specs and an amazing design is already climbing shelves in different markets, and Nigeria is one of the latest to get it.
According to a tweet by the official Xiaomi Nigeria account, the Mi 11 Lite (4G) is npw available in the country. The phone is available in a single configuration – 8GB RAM + 128GB of storage – and is priced at ₦146,000 (~$355). Unfortunately, there is no mention of where you can purchase it.
The price of the phone is higher than that of the Redmi Note 10 Pro, another Xiaomi (read Redmi) phone with similar specs that launched in the country early last month for ₦135,000 (~$329). When compared, the Redmi Note 10 Pro is the better buy.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro also has an FHD+ AMOLED display but with a 120Hz refresh rate that is higher than the Mi 11 Lite’s 90Hz refresh rate. The Mi 11 Lite has a smaller screen so you get a higher pixel density but both can display 1 billion colors and have Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
The Mi 11 Lite and Redmi Note 10 Pro are powered by the same Snapdragon 732G processor, have the same 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and the same 16MP camera. However, you get a 108MP quad camera on the Redmi Note 10 Pro while the Mi 11 Lite has a 64MP triple rear camera. Another difference is that while they both have support for storage expansion, the Redmi Note 10 Pro has a dedicated MicroSD card slot, but for the Mi 11 Lite, it is a shared SIM slot.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro wins again with a bigger 5020mAh battery as against the Mi 11 Lite’s 4250mAh battery capacity (33W fast charging is available on both devices). It also has an audio jack. The two phones run MIUI 12 based on Android 11 out of the box.
