Lite version is almost opposite to them or even it is opposite to normal version of the cell phone including smaller in phone size beside same or lower specs with little lesser price.

Pro: The phone would launch with little higher specs / features compare to non-pro or normal series phone. For example, Redmi 9, Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9 Pro. Here Redmi Note 9 Pro phone comes with much better specs and an additional features (beside little extra price) when compare to Redmi Note 9 or lower model Redmi 9 phones.

Plus: This one also as same as a 'Pro' phone. Better configuration and hardware upgrades in the gadget announced. Including RAM, ROM and Display etc. But this terminology using by a different brand altogether. Like, once Vivo V7 Plus.

Nokia is little different from these crowd, yes, they launch the higher version with numeric order or version type. Noka 1.1 and Nokia 1.2 etc. for budget type and Nokia 3 or Nokia 5 are mid-range type and on.

What are the differences among these terminology, technically?

Pro or Plus or Max or Note or Ultra etc. are coming with a larger screen mostly, chipset differences (better processor when compare), RAM and ROM differences, additional cameras or megapixels, a larger battery and on when compare to normal variant of the phone from the very same series.

Lite version rarely releases by the brand when some normal variant phone (that has little higher price and success) deemed fit to do so with the little lower specs, average display or less features to attract the youth or students for a pocket-friendly purpose.
