Stylish gradient design
The design of Mi 8 Lite was inspired by the works of famous French Impressionist painter Claude Monet, whose paintings are renowned for bringing out the effect of light on natural colors. The glass back employs an advanced NCVM color process, resulting in a mesmerizing mirror-like gradient finish. The 7.5mm slim body of Mi 8 Lite contains a 6.26-inch 19:9 LCD Full Screen Display, with an FHD+ (2246 x 1080) screen resolution and a Corning® Gorilla GlassTM 5 surface on the front.
24MP front camera produces amazing selfies
With over 24 million pixels, the front-facing Sony IMX576 sensor on Mi 8 Lite is able to capture images in great detail. In low light conditions, the sensor uses Super Pixel technology to combine the information of four pixels into one large pixel, resulting in improved clarity, especially in indoor scenarios. As with Mi 8, the rear AI dual camera uses the Sony IMX363 as its main sensor, which comes with 1.4µm large pixels for images with less noise, along with Dual Pixel Autofocus to dramatically improve focusing speeds so you won’t miss your shot.
The high-performance camera hardware is paired with Xiaomi’s advanced AI features, including a new AI adjustable bokeh that allows you to change the depth of field after taking a picture. Meanwhile, the Mi 8 Lite display can light up in different colors to suit different scenarios when taking selfies, intelligently illuminating the face with the right color temperature for great-looking selfies.
