Xiaomi has recently launched its latest smartphone, the Xiaomi 13 Lite, which boasts a unique feature called “Dynamic Island,” similar to that found in the iPhone 14 Pro.
Dynamic Island is a pill-shaped module that houses the front camera of the smartphone. On the iPhone, this module can display various functions, and its size can adjust to the function displayed, such as showing notifications.
While it is yet unknown whether the “Dynamic Island” on the Xiaomi 13 Lite can also have a dynamic shape like that of the iPhone, the selfie camera module on this phone appears to be smaller than that of the iPhone 14 Pro. The module contains two selfie cameras, one with a resolution of 32 MP and the other an 8 MP depth sensor.
The Xiaomi 13 Lite is actually a global version of Xiaomi Civi 2, which was initially released for the Chinese market. This phone features a 6.55-inch AMOLED curved screen with Full HD Plus resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. The screen has a brightness level of up to 1,000 nits and is protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
On the back of the Xiaomi 13 Lite, there is a camera module similar to that of the Xiaomi 12 series, housing three cameras, each with a resolution of 50 MP (Sony IMX766), 8 MP (ultrawide), and 2 MP (macro).
Under the hood, the Xiaomi 13 Lite is powered by the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage.
Furthermore, this phone is equipped with a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 67 watt fast charging technology. Xiaomi claims that the phone can be fully charged in approximately 40 minutes.
In terms of software, the Xiaomi 13 Lite runs the Android 12 operating system, polished with the MIUI 14 interface (UI), as reported by GSMArena.
Other notable features on this phone include 5G connectivity, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and Dolby Atmos, which enhances the audio quality of the phone’s speakers.
