The Mi 8 Lite was announced in September as a trimmed-down variant of the company’s flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi 8 launched in May. The Mi 8 Lite features a 6.26-inch Full HD+ display having a screen resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels, 19:9 aspect ratio, and a notch on top of the display. Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 AIE octa-core processor, coupled with Adreno 512 GPU. The chipset is manufactured using an advanced 14nm FinFET process.
The phone was originally made available in three variants based on memory configuration — 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. With this new 4GB+128GB variant, the Mi 8 Lite is now available in four different storage versions. The new variant is also available in three colour options just as the others— Dream Blue, Twilight Gold, and Black. Other configurations are also similar to those of the existing memory versions.
