AI processor with high performance reserves
In spite of the combat price, Xiaomi shows its generous side especially in the heart of the smartphone. The offshoot of the Mi 8 is powered by a Snapdragon 660 SOC processor. The Octa-Core CPU has four cores with a clock rate of 2.20 GHz and four cores with a speed of 1.84 GHz. With the support of the Adreno 512 GPU, even modern 3D games wring a tired smile from the Mi 8 Lite Edition. Absolutely sufficient power reserves are also offered for future generations of players. The same applies to opening multiple applications as well as applications that require a lot of memory. With 6 GB RAM, even highly complex applications pose no problem for the mid-range smartphone.

Modern security mechanisms
Security codes and patterns are not only absolutely "oldschool", but also represent a certain security risk. In particular, simple patterns and PIN combinations are quickly copied by unauthorised third parties. At the same time, the unlocking process is unnecessarily delayed. The Mi 8 Lite Edition puts an end to this and offers a fingerprint sensor on the back of the slim case. It's even faster via Face Unlock. After initial setup, the front camera detects the owner of the smartphone and unlocks the device within fractions of a second. It couldn't be faster, safer and more comfortable.

Intelligent camera guidance and raisin picking
Unlike other manufacturers, Xiaomi does not rely on proprietary developments and is therefore able to select technical raisins and integrate them into its equipment. In the case of the Mi 8 Lite Edition this is the case with the back camera. The 12 megapixel Sony IMX 363 sensor is supported by a strong Samsung S5K5E8 sensor, which provides a 5 megapixel resolution for a stunning bokeh effect. Hobby photographers will have their bright joy with this strong duo. Inexperienced photographers and newcomers, on the other hand, will be enthusiastic about the AI support. The subject in front of the two lenses is set to the appropriate settings fully automatically. The electronic image stabilisation compensates for restless hands during camera movement and thus guarantees even better results.
