Xiaomi will host a launch event on March 29. The event will showcase new smartphones that may include the Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra and even a new Mi Mix smartphone. The company is also expected to launch a new Mi 11 Youth Edition at the same event.
A report from Gizmochina claims that the Mi 11 Lite phone will launch in two variants, one with 4G and the other with 5G. The 5G variant is expected to be named Mi 11 Youth Edition. The youth edition of the smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 780 5G chipset. If Xiaomi uses this chipset, Mi 11 Youth Edition will be the first smartphone to get the chipset.
Some details about the device have been officially confirmed by the Chinese company. The Youth Edition of the Mi 11 series will be an extremely thin phone at just 6.81mm thick. With the device’s slim profile, the company should skip the 3.5mm headphone jack and opt for a versatile USB Type-C port instead. The phone should retain the MicroSD card slot.
The Mi 11 Youth Edition smartphone is expected to receive a 6.55-inch AMOLED display. The display panel should get Full HD + resolution. The AMOLED display will also get a high refresh rate of 91Hz.
In terms of the camera, the phone is expected to meet the needs of the younger audience with the help of a 20MP selfie camera that will be housed in a punch hole. The main camera setup will get a 64MP sensor with a 5MP macro sensor and an 8MP ultra-wide sensor.
In terms of RAM, it should get up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The phone is expected to be powered by a 4250mAh battery which will also benefit from 33W fast charging.
