After the launch of the Xiaomi 13 series of flagship smartphones, rumor has it that the company could be working on the Xiaomi 13 Lite smartphone for launch sometime soon. Fortunately, we also have a fairly good idea of what the phone is going to be like inside out thanks to its listing in Google Play Console. Also, its Google Play Console listing is an indication of the phone is close to its commercial launch and worldwide availability.
Meanwhile, there are also reports of the upcoming Xiaomi 13 Lite being in reality the rebranded Xiaomi CIVI 2 that the company had launched in China in September 2022. The Xiaomi CIVI 2 was also projected as a smartphone targeted at the female community though the company surely would like to see its rebranded version holding equal appeal for all sections of the society.
Coming to the likely specs the Xiaomi 13 Lite is expected to come with, the Google Play Console listing reveals it will have a Full HD+ OLED display having a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. That translates to a pixel density of 400 PPI. Also, it is going to be a 20:9 aspect ratio for the curved edge display that will have a punch hole at the center.
At its core, the Xiaomi 13 Lite is expected to have a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset though the name of the chip is not mentioned as such in the Google Play Console listing. However, given that the phone is mentioned to come with the Adreno 740 GPU and that the chipset is identified by the model code SM87450 in the listing had led experts to believe it is the SD7G1 processor that would be powering the phone. Further, the phone will come with 8 gigs of memory and will run Android 12 right out of the box.
For the camera, images reveal there is going to be a triple camera setup at the rear complete with an LED flash. However, there is no mention of the camera specs, be it either the front or rear cam. Also, while an in-screen fingerprint sensor seems probable on the Xiaomi 13 Lite, it is not known how much storage the phone will have or how big the battery is going to be.
Stay tuned for more on this.
