On September 19, Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, released the Xiaomi 8 Lite (also called Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition). This smartphone has three variants, 4GB+64GB, 6GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB. The official price of these versions is 1399 Yuan ($204), 1699 Yuan ($248) and 1999 Yuan ($292) respectively. Now, a couple of easily accessible stores now have the 6GB+64GB and it sells from $269.99. The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite has three highlights – a more trendy appearance, a close-to-flagship configuration, and a higher price-/performance ratio.
The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is packed with a 6.26-inch full-screen, a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor, 3350mAh battery supporting QC3.0 fast charging, and a 12MP rear camera (1.4μm pixel size, dual-core focus, f/1.9 aperture), which is accompanied by a 5MP secondary sensor. The latter is identical to the original Mi 8. It has a 12-to-0 advantage for the Huawei P20 in the AI scene recognition. Of course, this handset supports Xiao AI voice assistant but this is only relevant for Chinese speakers.
