Xiaomi 13 Lite Officially launched with Snapdragon 7 Gen 1

The Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro, the company’s newest flagship products, were introduced at an event held by Xiaomi during MWC 2023. The Xiaomi 13 Lite is a new addition to the portfolio. The smartphone, which replaces the 12 Lite from last year, has many enhancements, including a dual selfie camera. Here, we’ll go over the specifications, attributes, accessibility, and anticipated cost of the Xiaomi 13 Lite in India.

Xiaomi 13 Lite Overview:


Whatever the case, the Xiaomi 13 Lite delivers a lightweight and thin body with measurements of 171 grams and 7.23mm, respectively. In order to make the smartphone fit comfortably in your hands, both the front and back feature curves all the way around.

Its predecessor had one camera on the front, while this one features two cameras on the front in a pill-shaped cutout. Moreover, there are two “Xiaomi Selfie Glow” LED flashes on each side of the camera, which will help produce dazzling images and videos, particularly at night.


Speaking of the sensors, there are two: an 8MP depth sensor and a 32MP ultrawide lens with a 100° field of view (FoV). The latter will be utilized to create realistic bokeh effects in portrait photography, whilst the Dynamic Framing function on the 13 Lite makes use of the main lens’ broader field of view.

It functions similarly to Apple’s center stage, which recognizes faces intelligently and maintains them in the picture. For this, the camera has three zoom settings: 0.6x, 0.8x, and 1x. By having two 32MP lenses, this arrangement differs slightly from that of the Civi 2.

Three cameras are present on the back, with the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor taking center stage. Many high-end smartphones, including the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2, Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition, and Oppo Reno 8 Pro, to name a few, have adopted this sensor.

Xiaomi claims that this 1/1.56′′ sensor with 1.0 million pixels and an f/1. 8 aperture can capture 123% more light than the 108MP sensor on the 12 Lite from a year ago with an f/1.9 aperture. The 2MP macro camera and 8MP ultrawide lens with 119° FoV, however, are carryovers from the previous year.


The 6.55″ curved AMOLED screen of this device features 12-bit color depth, Dolby Vision support, and HDR 10+ compatibility. Xiaomi has added 1920Hz PWM dimming to the Full HD resolution display, which has a peak brightness of 1000 nits. This is done to prevent screen flickering. Not to mention, it features a touch sampling rate of 240Hz and refreshes at a rate of 120Hz.

The phone has an IP53 grade for dust and water protection, and Xiaomi has protected the display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. While being constructed of glass, the back lacks a protective coating, and the frames are made of plastic.


The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 CPU, according to Xiaomi, improves GPU and AI performance by 20% and 30%, respectively. Despite the phone’s small size and compact design, the manufacturer was nevertheless able to include a 2360mm2 special stainless steel vacuum chamber for better thermals.

You can choose between 8/128GB and 8/256GB memory options. Additionally, the phone starts up with MIUI 14, which is still based on Android 12.


The Xiaomi 13 Lite is powered by a 4500mAh battery that charges using a 67W adapter that comes in the box. You receive stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support for audio. Among the available connectivity options are WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, 4G (LTE), and 5G.

NFC is also supported, albeit its accessibility varies by area. An in-display fingerprint sensor is provided for biometric purposes.
