A midrange-priced device with a lot of flagship-level features. That’s what the Xiaomi 12 Lite tries to offer.
One of the highlight features of the Xiaomi 12 Lite is the ultra-sharp 108-megapixel HM2 sensor from Samsung. Next to it are the usual suspects: 8-megapixel ultra-wide and 2-megapixel macro lens. On the front, we have a sharp 32-megapixel selfie camera.
We also have a fancy 6.55-inch AMOLED screen, which is complete with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ certification.
The 12 Lite has a relatively small 4,300mAh battery, which is forgivable since it is one of the thinnest in the market at only 7.29m. Plus, it comes with a whopping 67W turbo charger.
Like a lot of modern phones, it is rigged with WiFI 6 connectivity, NFC, stereo speakers, and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
But since it is still a midrange phone, it is still powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G processor. You can get it with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage.
The Xiaomi 12 Lite has a starting price of Php20,999 in the Philippines for the 6GB/128GB model while the 8GB/256GB variant is at Php21,999. It will be up for pre-order starting August 19 to 26 at Xiaomi’s official stores, where you can get it with Php3,500 worth of freebies that includes a Xiaomi Tyvek bag, Xiaomi Nightlight, Xiaomi Pinoy Bunny, ceramic mug, shirt, notebook, and a pen.
