According to the tipster, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite may get discontinued to make way for the Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G. He added that the company will continue to sell the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G, which is currently selling at a starting price of Rs 26,999.

It may probably receive a price cut before the launch of the Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G. The leaker does not mention anything about the launch timeframe for 12 Lite. Since the 11 Lite NE was announced in September last year, it appears the 12 Lite may debut around the same time in India.

The specifications of the Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G are already known since it was recently announced in the global market with a starting price of $399 (~Rs 31,900).
