Xiaomi will launch a new series of flagship phones in a few days. The Xiaomi Mi 12S will be the locomotive of the company in the second half of the year. Thus, this lineup will try to keep the good pace of the company before the Xiaomi Mi 13 arrives. However, before we talk about the latter, and before the manufacturer launches the new series, today, it released the Xiaomi Mi 12 Lite globally.
Xiaomi Mi 12 Lite
The machine sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chip. This is the best option in the mid-range field. Also, there is a 6.55-inch FHD resolution screen with a 120Hz refresh rate support. It’s a flexible AMOLED straight screen providing an outstanding viewing experience. The 4300mAh battery supports 67W fast charging, which is a very attractive feature when taking into consideration the phone’s positioning in terms of photography, there is a 108MP outsole main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP wide-angle lens. The selfie shooter has a 32MP resolution.
The rest of the features include a plastic middle frame, under-screen fingerprint recognition scanner, stereo speakers supporting Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, HDR10+, and is pre-installed with the Android 12-based MIUI13 system.
In terms of pricing, this model offers an 8+128GB version and sells for $587.
Xiaomi Mi 13
A Weibo leaker said that there are at least three Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship processor phones waiting for the official launch. They will come with a 2K 120Hz flexible curved screen, a 2K 120Hz flexible straight screen, and an FHD+ 165Hz flexible screen.
If nothing accidental, these three will correspond to Xiaomi, Realme, and Motorola, respectively. Moreover, the first of them should be the Xiaomi Mi 13 series, possibly the Mi 13 Pro, which is expected to be released by the end of this year.
If believing the previous leaks, it is going to be the most powerful flagship in Xiaomi’s history. The main reason why we think so is the second-generation Snapdragon 8 flagship processor. This chip is based on the TSMC process and adopts a new “1+2+2+3” octa-core architecture design. Compared with the “1+3+4” architecture of the Snapdragon 8+, the former has one more large core and one less small core.
In addition, Qualcomm’s second-generation Snapdragon 8 has upgraded both super-large cores and large cores. The super-large core is upgraded to ARM Cortex X3, two large cores are upgraded to Cortex A720, two large cores are Cortex A710, and the GPU is the Adreno 740 now.
