Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite hits Europe, more expensive than Mi 9T
Xiaomi has brought several great budget-friendly phones to Europe in recent months, such as the Mi 9T series and the Redmi Note 7. It isn’t stopping there though, as the firm has just launched the Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite in Spain.
The Mi 9 Lite is priced at 319 euros (~$352), and that will net you the model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. Need more internal space? Then you can expect to pay 349 euros (~$385) for the 6GB/128GB option.
Buy the phone and you’ll get a Snapdragon 710 processor, a 6.39-inch AMOLED screen (FHD+), in-display fingerprint sensor, and a 4,030mAh battery with 18W charging.
Xiaomi’s phone is also a capable photography platform in theory, offering a 32MP selfie shooter in a waterdrop notch and a triple rear camera trio. The latter consists of a 48MP Sony sensor, 8MP ultra-wide snapper, and a 2MP depth sensor.
Other noteworthy specs include a 3.5mm port, NFC, USB-C, an IR blaster, camera-based face unlock, and hybrid SIM slots.
The phone seems like a pretty capable device then, but European users might want to look at the Xiaomi Mi 9T first. This device starts at roughly 300 euros (~$331), but offers a more powerful chipset, a pop-up selfie camera, and a triple rear camera setup with telephoto zoom instead of a depth sensor. The Mi 9 Lite’s one major advantage is that it delivers a higher resolution selfie camera.
We haven’t seen more details regarding wider European availability, but you can check out the Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite on the Spanish Mi Store via the button below. Do note that sales kick off from September 20, so you’ll have to wait a few days to get your device.
