In this sense, the Xiaomi Mi 12 Lite will come with a mixed design of Xiaomi Civi and Xiaomi Mi 12. As a reminder, the former model is the most beautiful smartphone of the company, while the latter is the most powerful handset in the company’s history.
Xiaomi Mi 12 Lite Specs
Other than that, the Xiaomi Mi 12 Lite will sport a 6.55-inch 3D curved OLED screen with a resolution of 1080×2400. This display will also boast a refresh rate of 120Hz, support for FOD as well as on-screen fingerprint recognition.
Under the hood, we will find the much-popular Snapdragon 778G+ chip. But there are rumors claiming that the phone might sport a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 7xx series chip.
Well, on the back, the phone will carry a triple camera. The main sensor will be using the 64-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL GW3 CMOS. It also has ultra-wide and macro lenses to assist the main camera. Unfortunately, none of them supports OIS (optical image stabilization). The device will also have stereo speakers. As for software, it will run the MIUI 13 system based on Android 12 out of the box. The phone will be available in the international markets only.
Looking at the mentioned features, we can notice that the Xiaomi Mi 12 Lite will have almost the same features as the Xiaomi Civi. Many specs come from the latter – the 6.55-inch 3D curved screen, the 64-megapixel triple camera, and so on.
