Xiaomi is trying to shake up the midrange category in the Philippines again.
Just recently, the company announced that they will be bringing the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite here in the country.
For those who are unfamiliar, the Mi 8 Lite brags a specs list that can easily put the competition to shame. An unsurprising feat for a Xiaomi device.
The set of appealing features starts with its large 6.26-inch FHD+ display, a 24-megapixel selfie camera on the front, and a dual 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual shooters on the back.

It’s then powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, with either a 4GB/64GB or a 6GB/128GB configuration. A really impressive combo for a device at this price.
Speaking of which, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite has a retail price of Php13,990 for the 4GB/64GB model, while the 6GB/128GB variant is only at Php16,990. Both variants are now available for pre-order through Xiaomi’s official stores in Lazada and Shopee.
