Xiaomi 12 Lite: 5 things you need to know

Xiaomi’s new stylish handset has landed. The Xiaomi 12 Lite is built to reflect your style and offer a capable smartphone experience for today’s always-on users. 

Here are five things you need to know about the Xiaomi 12 Lite:

Slim and lite fashionable profile

Xiaomi 12 Lite keeps everything slim and sleek. It weighs in at just 173g and is 7.29mm thin. Its back cover features a matte color gradient that creates an eye-catching effect when hit by light. It comes in Lite Green, Lite Pink, and Black.

That color extends to the flat edges. Meanwhile, metal rings add a classy touch to the rear cameras.

Photo-ready 108-megapixel camera setup

Xiaomi arms the Xiaomi 12 Lite with a capable set of cameras to make sure you capture your favorite memories. It has a 108-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor.

There’s also a 32-megapixel selfie camera that gets extra help from two soft LEDs. It’s a feature we’ve seen in other devices that unquestionably come in handy for getting flattering selfies. Xiaomi boasts an improved selfie portrait mode with auto HDR.

Other useful camera features include eye tracking, motion capture, a Magic Cutout option, our favorite Vlog modes, and other One-click AI cinema features. Magic Cutout can identify and outline people, cats, and dogs for image editing.

Xiaomi 12 Lite’s capable performance

Xiaomi promises a flagship experience with the Xiaomi 12 Lite. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage powers this midrange device. 

This phone has a smaller 4,300mAh battery to help maintain its slim profile. But Xiaomi makes up for that by adding 67W charging to this device. You can recharge it to 100% in just 41 minutes. Xiaomi AdaptiveCharge can learn your night-time charging patterns and optimize its charging for you.

Great content consumption experience

If you spend a lot of time watching on your phone, the Xiaomi 12 Lite promises immersive viewing. It has a 6.55-inch AMOLED screen with HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. It has features like Sunlight mode 3.0, Reading mode 3.0, and True Display for all-day eye care. Dual speakers with Dolby Atmos spatial audio help complete that entertainment experience.
