Xiaomi would have planned to decline its Xiaomi 12 in a more affordable version, with a Lite model, as it had done with the Mi 11 series. We still know a little more about it: the complete technical sheet of the Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G has just been revealed in a leak.
Xiaomi continues to expand its new series, the Xiaomi 12. After the Xiaomi 12X, a less powerful version of the Xiaomi 12, the Chinese brand intends to offer a more affordable model, embodied by the Xiaomi 12 Lite. The formula had already hit the nail on the head a year ago with the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. Pending its presentation in good and due form by Xiaomi, a certain amount of information has been leaked on the web.
What will the Xiaomi 12 Lite offer?
Their’well-informed person Yogesh Brar who reveals its specifications to us in a cheep. This confirms what we had already learned last month about this new affordable model.
As expected, if it looks like a relatively compact model, the Xiaomi 12 Lite would still be more imposing than the Xiaomi 12, with a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel, showing FHD + definition and enjoying a good refresh rate of 120 Hz.
On the processor side, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G chip was chosen. It is a 5G compatible SoC: a great asset for an affordable smartphone. On the RAM side, we would stay in a classic 6 or 8 GB, with 128 to 256 GB of storage.
In terms of photography, the Lite model should offer an effective solution with a triple rear sensor, including a 64 MP OIS wide angle, an 8 MP ultra wide angle and an additional 5 MP PM macro sensor. At the front, it is a 16 MP that would be offered for selfies.
Autonomy would be ensured by a respectable 4,500 mAh battery, backed by 67 W wired recharging. At this point, the 12 Lite will surely do better than its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. Another difference with this model, the fingerprint reader will be located below the screen.
Apparently the phone will ship with MIUI 13 (Android 12).
What rates and availability?
As is often the case with Xiaomi smartphones, it is possible that, once it has been officially presented, the Xiaomi 12 Lite will be sold first only in China, before reaching Europe. However, the 12X quickly became available in France, so we can expect the same to happen with the Lite.
As for the price, the latter should logically be lower than that of the Xiaomi 12X, which is presented with a launch price of 799.90 euros. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G was offered at 400 euros in France, when it went on the market: the 12 Lite is likely to follow in its footsteps.
