The 12 Lite 5G is a lighter version of Xiaomi’s current flagship, but its data sheet is quite attractive. While the 128 GB model is normally offered at €449.90, today you can get the 256 GB version for just €369.
Xiaomi is well known for offering a wide range of smartphones for all budgets. Among its twelfth generation, the Lite version was the last expected. The Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G therefore copies its older brothers, and offers very good level components, but for a very low price. If the builder has already reduced the final bill, the 256 GB model is now €80 cheaper than the 128 GB model.
The Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G in a nutshell
- A 6.55-inch 120 Hz AMOLED screen
- An efficient Snapdragon 778G SoC
- Super fast 67W charging
If on the manufacturer’s website we only find the 8+128 GB version of the Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G at 449.90 euros, on AliExpress the model with 256 GB of storage is offered at a more attractive price: only 369 euros using coupon and seller code FR30.
A Lite version without too many compromises
As its name suggests, the Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G is a lighter version of the classic model. Thus, it offers a less premium design but with the same beautiful finishes with touches of color. Its 6.55-inch panel does not prevent it from offering a pleasant grip, in particular thanks to its 7.29 mm and a weight of only 173 grams. On the front, there is an AMOLED panel in FHD + and a refresh rate of 120 Hz that allows a very smooth display.
On the performance side, it is powered by a Snapdragon 778G coupled with 8GB of RAM, a chip that has already been tested with the Samsung Galaxy A52s. With such a configuration, the Xiaomi smartphone is powerful enough to perform most daily tasks, except for the most demanding games, in which some slowdowns should occur.
Provides good performance for the price.
Flipping it over, we discover a triple photosensor made up of a 108-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, as well as a macro lens. The main sensor should guarantee good shots. On the front, the camera is 32 megapixels to guarantee good quality in your selfies and the presence of double LEDs will allow it to be illuminated at all times, even at night.
The least expensive of the range makes some concessions, in terms of autonomy by integrating a small 4,300 mAh battery. The Lite version of the Xiaomi 12 should last a day depending on its use. Good news on the charging side, the phone supports 67W charging and allows you to reach 100% battery in just 41 minutes.
