Based on a report from WinFuture, the Mi 11 Lite 5G is relying on a yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 780 chip. This chip is supposed to be the successor of last year’s popular Snapdragon 765G that powered a whole lot of premium phones last year, including the Redmi K30 5G and OnePlus Nord. The 4G variant is using a less capable Snapdragon 732G chip, similar to the one from the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
