Not too long after the introduction of its China-only Xiaomi 12S trio, Xiaomi has officially launched yet another member to its 12 series smartphone family with the all-new Xiaomi 12 Lite. Being the more affordable variant, the phone comes with the more modest Snapdragon 778G chipset, though it is equipped with a larger 108MP primary camera.
The Xiaomi 12 Lite sports a flat 6.55-inch AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and surrounded by considerably slim bezels. The panel also features a refresh rate of 120Hz and touch sampling rate of 240Hz, as well as HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support. Additionally, the phone itself comes with dual speakers, under-display fingerprint scanner, and a USB-C port. As for colour selection, the Lite is available in Black, Pink, and Green options.
Under its hood is the aforementioned 5G-enabled Snapdragon 778G chip with an Adreno 642L GPU, as well as up to 8GB RAM and a maximum UFS 2.2 storage capacity of 256GB. Besides that, the phone comes with dual SIM support with dual 5G standby, Android 12 via Xiaomi’s MIUI 13 platform, and also WiFi, NFC and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity.
Meanwhile, powering the phone is a 4,300mAh battery with 67W fast charging support. According to the brand, a charger is also included together with the device in its packaging.
In terms of imaging, on the back of the Xiaomi 12 Lite is a triple camera setup which consists of a 108MP primary shooter, 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro sensor. Housed within the cutout on its display, on the other hand, is a front-facing camera equipped with a 32MP Samsung GD2 sensor.
The new Xiaomi 12 Lite is now available for pre-order at select markets, though its availability in Malaysia is unconfirmed at this time. The phone will retail at US$ 400 (~RM 1,770) for the 6GB + 128GB configuration, US$ 450 (~RM 1,992) for the 8GB + 128GB, and US$ 500 (~RM 2,213) for the top-end 8GB + 256GB version.
