Xiaomi 13 Lite details confirmed by retailer leaks
It is no secret that Xiaomi plans to release the Xiaomi 13 series in Europe soon, with the company confirming that the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro will launch on February 26. However, a European retailer briefly listed the pair, as well as the Xiaomi 13 Lite. While Cyberport has since deactivated the listings, cached versions are still viewable via Google Cache.
As expected, the Xiaomi 13 Lite will start at €499 with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Reputedly, Xiaomi will also sell a 256 GB of storage option for €549, although we could not find any Cyberport listings for this SKU at the time of publication. Regardless, the two listings that went live confirmed the device's reliance on the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, which has not found its way into too many handsets yet.
For reference, Qualcomm is rumoured to be preparing the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1 or Snapdragon 7 Gen 2, details of which we have discussed separately. Moreover, the Xiaomi 13 Lite will offer a 50 MP primary camera, plus 8 MP secondary, 2 MP tertiary and 32 MP front-facing cameras. Furthermore, Xiaomi equips the Xiaomi 13 Lite with a 6.55-inch AMOLED display that operates at 1080p with a 402 PPI and a rumoured 120 Hz refresh rate.
The Xiaomi 13 Lite has a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 67 W fast charging via a bundled power adapter too. Unfortunately, the handset will ship with Android 12, unlike the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro. The Xiaomi 13 Lite should launch in black, blue and pink colourways; Cyberport appeared to only list the device's blue and pink options, though.
