Xiaomi 12 Lite is another smartphone from a well-known manufacturer that is just arriving in our stores. What does it offer and how much do you have to spend on it?
Polish premiere of Xiaomi 12 Lite, price and availability
Signals about the imminent premiere of this model in our country have been appearing for several days, and today we received an official announcement. Will it join the group of models recommended in response to doubts about what Xiaomi to buy? We’ll see, for testing it would be better to wait for a final verdict. However, the first conclusions do not have to be particularly optimistic.
As for the price, the Xiaomi 12 Lite comes in a variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, the price of which was 2199 PLN.
However, there is an action for the first buyers. Those who buy the Xiaomi 12 Lite can expect a PLN 200 discount no later than November 3. However, the promotion is valid only in official Xiaomi stores (stationary and online).

Will it be worth buying the Xiaomi 12 Lite?
The naming can be a bit confusing. Looking for similarities with the Xiaomi 12 or Xiaomi 12T series here might prove a little disappointing. Yes, in terms of design, the manufacturer has not deviated much from more expensive models, but as far as specifications are concerned, some may have noticed that we are dealing with a slightly overclocked Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE.
The latter is currently available for less than PLN 1,500. Is it worth paying extra for a debut proposal? Along with the newer software, the most important changes at the start are a higher refresh rate (120 Hz instead of 90 Hz), faster battery charging (67 W instead of 33 W), a better selfie camera and the main lens in the rear camera (108 Mpix versus 64 Mpix). At least in theory, because as you know Mpix themselves don’t always say everything. In addition, there is probably the same 8 Mpix ultra wide angle lens and 2 Mpix macro and it is an incomprehensible decision, because it is a downgrade of 5 Mpix telemacro from Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE. The processor and memory resources remained the same.
