Xiaomi 13 Lite coming with ‘Dynamic Island’ vibes, kind of
According to a new report, the Xiaomi 13 Lite may be a rebranded Xiaomi Civi 2. That device actually has a pill-shaped camera cutout on the front. So, the Xiaomi 13 Lite may have those ‘Dynamic Island’ vibes once it launches, to a degree.
The Xiaomi 13 Lite will launch with ‘Dynamic Island’ vibes
Just to be clear, this doesn’t mean it will actually have the functionality of Apple’s Dynamic Island, not at all. This pill-shaped camera cutout is likely simply there for the cameras, not any added functionality around it. Though you can always add it via a third-party app.
However, it is worth noting that a report surfaced back in September, claiming that Xiaomi and Realme are considering Dynamic Island-type feature. So, who knows, Xiaomi may end up surprising us.
Having said that, the Xiaomi 13 Lite unboxing surfaced online (shown below), which is where all this information is coming from. Based on the design of the unboxed product, it will be a rebranded Xiaomi Civi 2 which has already launched in China. This is not surprising, not at all.

The device will include a 120Hz display, 67W charging & more
The phone is expected to feature a 6.55-inch fullHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 will seemingly fuel the device, Qualcomm’s mid-range processor.
A 4,500mAh battery will power the phone, while 67W wired charging will be included too. You will find an in-display fingerprint scanner on this phone as well, an optical one.
A 50-megapixel main camera (Sony’s IMX766 sensor) will be backed by a 20-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. On the front, two 32-megapixel cameras will sit, one of which will be an ultrawide one.
The Xiaomi 13 Lite is expected to launch alongside the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro. Those two phones launched in China already, but not globally. They will launch globally on February 26, Xiaomi confirmed.
