Mi launched its slimmest and lightest smartphone, Mi 11 Lite 4G, in India last month. Within a week of its launch, the smartphone recorded Rs. 200 crores sales in India. These were excellent records as the Mi 11 Lite 4G directly competed with the hyped smartphone OnePlus Nord CE 5G in that price range. Mi 11 Lite 4G costs Rs. 21,999 for the base variant in India. Moreover, it is powered by Snapdragon 732G chipset and offers an AMOLED display. However, the company has discontinued Mi 11 Lite 4G in India out of nowhere.
Tipster Abhishek Yadav shared this news via Twitter. In his recent tweet, he shared that Xiaomi has discontinued the Mi 11 Lite 4G in India. However, the company is planning to launch the Mi 11 Lite 5G in India. However, Xiaomi has still not made any official statement regarding this, and the reason behind this is still unknown.
However, this can be bad news for the Mi 11 Lite 4G users, but still, the company will launch the 5G version at a much higher price. The Mi 11 Lite 5G variant was launched in the global market at 399 Euros (Rs. 35,218). However, there are chances that the company may launch the 5G version of Mi 11 Lite under Rs. 25,000 in India. The main reason behind this is that the company already has the Mi 11X smartphone with Snapdragon 870 chipset under Rs. 30,000 and also because the company is best known for delivering the best at aggressive pricing. The reason that Mi 11 Lite 4G is being discontinued is unknown, however, the chip shortage might be the contributing factor to the cause.
