The Xiaomi 12 Lite is a follow-up of the Xiaomi 12 series launched at the end of 2021. The 12 series packed a total of three devices during its launch event. Xiaomi 12 Pro, 12, and 12x graced the December launch event. But judging from the previous Xiaomi flagship series, the Mi11, we can be sure that Xiaomi has unfinished business. The Mi11 series has six devices under it, and among these flagship devices is a Lite model that is affordable yet keeps up to the specs and Impressive design seen on the rest of the devices in this series. Xiaomi plans to launch a Lite model for the 12 series, and for a while now we only had spec evidence for this device, but that isn’t the case anymore!

The leaked images of the 12 Lite are crisp and clear, so one can see in detail what this device looks like. Weibo blogger WHYLAB is responsible for the leaked Xiaomi 12 Lite images, which are available on his page. We can notice a few changes from the Xiaomi 12 trio launched in December.
The design of the Xiaomi trio uses a curved back frame, but this is not the case with the Xiaomi 12 Lite leaked images.
