By Aashish Verma

Xiaomi began adding NE variants to its flagship phones last year with the 11 Lite 5G. It got a new 11 Lite 5G NE model with the same specs and a new chipset.

Model Number

The device's IMEI number is 2210129SG. The "G" indicates a worldwide release, not a Chinese mode.


It is likely to have the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, which is a direct replacement for the popular Snapdragon 778G found in the last generation of phones.


It will have a 50MP primary camera, a 20MP ultrawide unit, and an 8MP macro camera, similar to the Civi 2.


It will likely have the same 4,500 mAh battery that can be charged quickly with 67W. This can fully charge the battery in 40 minutes.


The FCC listing showed that the 12 Lite 5G NE would have storage sizes of 128 GB and 256 GB and RAM sizes of 6 to 8 GB.

FCC Certified

Model number 2210129SG has already been approved by the FCC, which means the launch is just around the corner.
