This device comes with a tiny Notch, the upper border of 2.68mm and a side of about 1.95mm wide. With all these specs featured, you already should know that this smartphone has improved when you compare it to its brothers.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite comes with 3 colors that are super amazing and they are; the Twilight gold, Dream blue and finally the Deep space gray.

Unlike the Mi 8 SE and Mi 8, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite back camera comes with the features of the trendy “iPhone like” design of “iPhone 7/8 Plus”, that is horizontally placed, coupled with the popular  “iPhone X” style.

Unlike Mi 8 and Mi 8 SE, the rear camera of Lite adopts the trendy “iPhone like” design of “iPhone 7/8 Plus”, which is horizontally aligned, and the “iPhone X” style that is now popular. The new “iPhone like” design is different.

However, the placement design of the camera belongs to the metaphysical problem of radish, and everyone has something to do with it.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite features a well-polished metal frame, that is thinner than the 7.5mm thick body. when it comes to the thickness of this device, it has been really defined compared to its brother model.

At the top of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is seated a mic, but sadly, there is no infrared sensor anymore and the Mi fans have made mention of that. While at the bottom of this device you will see USB Type-C charging interface, a symmetrical design of the speaker and a microphone. I felt a little bit sad when I couldn’t find the 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite comes with comes with 64GB/128GB  internal storage and now supports an external SD card expansion of up to 256GB, you can now kiss insufficient memory problems goodbye.

Camera

I like it from the back, so let’s begin from there. At the rear of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite dual camera is seated a 12 MP, f/1.9, 1/2.55″, 1.4µm, dual pixel PDAF; and this is assisted by another 5 MP, f/2.0, 1.12µm, depth sensor. The back cameras also feature a LED flash, HDR, panorama.

Now, at the front of the front of this device is seated a single 24 MP, 0.9µm. Both the front and back of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite uses Sony’s flagship sensor. The back camera is IMX363, which is exactly the same as the Xiaomi Mi 8 in the DXO tycoon.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite cameras come with a relatively stable HDR ability, though in the night it seems to be a little bit tempered. It doesn’t over-expose the door lights, which also reduces the brightness of a picture. We suggest they make little improvement.

The 24 MP camera at the front of this device is the largest pixel and it is accompanied by with the highest resolution and to crown it all, it also supports pixel four-in-one technology. The cameras on the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite provides a targeted “micro-shaping” beauty program.

Here is a comparison between the parameters of the manufacturers Snapdragon 660 and the Kirin 659 and MediaTek P60 processors within the same period. It doesn’t matter if it is a Qualcomm’s independent architecture or GPU advantage, all I know is that the Snapdragon 660 is a configuration ahead of its time.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is the first smartphone with the Snapdragon 660 that supports the Vulkan version of “The King’s Glory”. The excess load in the CPU working state can greatly be reduced by the Vulkan.

Also, the Vulkan is better and able to support multi-threaded processing and multi-core CPU, efficient mining of the potential performance of the Snapdragon 660, follow-up, “Fortress Night” and “Jesus Survival: Stimulate the Battlefield”, coupled with other popular mobile games based on its Unreal 4 engine is also expected Join Vulkan.
