To recall, earlier reports have indicated that the company will unveil the Xiaomi CC11 smartphone in its home country soon. Also, the device could be a rebranded version of the 11 Lite NE 5G, which arrived in the global market earlier this month. If rumors making the rounds online are anything to go by, Xiaomi could dump its plan to launch the CC11. Instead, the company could launch the device with the Xiaomi Civi moniker.
Last month, a Xiaomi phone with model number 2107119DC passed through the TENAA certification website. The phone could turn out to be the Chinese variant of the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G. The phone has a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a punch-hole to accommodate the front camera. Furthermore, the phone packs a Snapdragon 778G chipset, and ships with 12GB, 8GB, and 6GB of RAM. Morever, it will come with 512GB, 256GB, and 128GB of onboard storage capacity. Furthermore, the phone has a robust 4,250mAh battery with 33W rapid charging support.
It has a 20MP front shooter for selfies and video calling. The rear panel houses a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 5MP macro sensor. The fingerprint scanner is available on the side edge. It is worth noting that the Xiaomi Civi could turn out to be a completely different device and not a mobile phone. More details are likely to surface ahead of its official unveiling.
