The Mi 11 series has two more devices but these are the somewhat affordable of the releases. Among the big differences between them is that the main camera on the Mi 11i is 108 MP while the Mi 11 Lite features a 64 MP main camera. Xiaomi has been featuring some solid cameras on its devices but if you’re looking to have a phone with some of the latest tech in the camera department, then the Mi 11i makes more sense. The Lite version does have a lower price than its big brothers so it’s not a bad option if you’re looking to spend less on a new smartphone.
