Xiaomi has quietly unveiled its new, cheapest smartphone in the flagship series, the Xiaomi 12 Lite. According to the Equal Leaks portal, it was announced in Azerbaijan (not the most common place for a corporation), but it is already on sale in an authorized Russian Mi-Shop store.
Xiaomi 12 Lite is outwardly identical to its older brothers – the continuity of the design indicates that the new product is indeed part of the flagship series, and did not get its name solely for marketing reasons. The differences in the filling compared to the regular Xiaomi 12 are quite significant, they lie almost everywhere, including cameras, processor and screen.
