Two of Xiaomi‘s Civi smartphones in China are on their way to the global market. Or so it seems.

(Update, February 27: The Xiaomi 13 Lite has been launched!)

The Xiaomi 13 Lite has appeared on the Google Play Console database as a mix of the Xiaomi Civi 2 and Xiaomi Civi 1S. The device’s design in the image that accompanies the listing is similar to that of the 1S. However, the few specs revealed — a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 5G processor, a screen with a 1,080 x 2,400 resolution, and Android 12 — and the code name “Ziyi” indicate that the previous reports claiming that the Xiaomi 13 Lite is a rebranded Civi 2 are true.

Besides the specifications mentioned earlier, the Civi 2 launched in China in September 2022 with front-facing LED flashes used to to assist the 32-megapixel main and 32-megapixel ultrawide selfie cameras in low-light situations — a first for the company. The handset likewise features a rear camera setup that includes a 50-megapixel primary sensor paired with a 20-megapixel ultrawide lens and a 2-megapixel macro unit; a 4,500mAh battery with 67-watt fast-charging support; and a 6.55-inch AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

There’s a good chance that the Xiaomi 13 Lite will be released in the Philippines, considering that the Xiaomi 12 Lite and Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite mid-priced phones became available in the country.
