5 Reasons Why Fashionistas Are Loving This New Chic Phone

From getting the right style to the perfect shot, here are reasons why the Xiaomi 12 Lite ticks all the right boxes for style mavens.

In work, in life, and in leisure, the fashionista knows that having the right phone with the right look and the right features, can spell a big difference in the content game. In more ways that we can imagine, the phone is an accessory not just when we take our OOTDs, but also when we go out and about, taking mirror selfies, when we make vlogs, or when we make content for IG and FB reels or Tiktok, the phone is pretty much our editing bay + capture device. We’ve put this to the test with the new Xiaomi 12 Lite, which levels up our style content game by several notching through its different innovations. 

Check out all the reasons why we’re loving this phone:

1. The chic design

Lightweight, slim, and in such gorgeous colors, this one is tough to beat in the looks department. We all love taking mirror selfies showing ourselves, our outfits, and our phones—and we’ve discovered that the Xiaomi 12 Lite actually does NOT need any decorative case anymore because of the way it looks alone. 


It comes with a sleek 7.29mm thin design and weighs only 173g, so it’s easy to take those one-hand selfies, or you can carry it easily inside one of your smallest purses. 

In terms of the back cover, it has a matte color gradient that’s almost iridescent (which is a big color trend as well!). It comes in three colors: Lite Green, Lite Pink, and Black, all of which can express different personalities—from minimalist to cutesy. 

2. The camera is just WOW for its size

Yes, the word is WOW, because this tiny phone packs a punch when it comes to its camera. It has a studio-level triple camera setup, with 108MP main camera powered by a large HM2 sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera (so you never have to take a step back), and a 2MP macro camera that can capture HD images (for all your jewelry shots). 

The 108MP camera alone can already give you fashion editorial-ready shots, perfect for the ‘gram, but you’ll be happy to know that it comes with even more innovative features to make sure you can take that shot perfectly: with eye-tracking focus and enabled motion capture. This means that you can shoot in different conditions, and that the phone is actually helping you ‘think’ of the best shot. 


3. Awesome for selfies

The front camera has 32MP as well, and has a GD2 sensor and autofocus capabilities, which can give ultra-clear selfies with refined clarity and color. What we super like: the bokeh effect on the front camera, for your selfies, and the Selfie portrait mode with auto HDR, which means that you don’t have to keep using the back camera for your selfies. 

Then there’s the Xiaomi Selfie Glow—which can illuminate your face (and even one or two companions) so you’ll get that impressive selfie shot even at night when you’re attending a fashion party.


4. Easy to bring, easy to charge

With a powerful phone like the Xiaomi 12 Lite, you might be wondering about battery life and charging time, because making content does use up a lot of power. Thankfully, the Xiaomi 12 Lite comes ith a 4,300mAh battery which can support a full day of use, but more importantly, it has a 67W turbo charger which can power up to 100% battery in just 41 minutes! That means you can start charging your phone just an hour before you go out the door, and it’ll be fully powered up.


5. Super display for editing your photos and viewing videos

Having an excellent camera is one thing, but the screen must also be able to adapt to your content needs. The Xiaomi 12 Lite comes with a 6.55” AMOLED display and has HDR10+ and Dolby Vision for a gorgeous viewing experience. It has TrueColor display which can show 68 billion colors, perfect when you’re very pantone-specific in your feed, and especially when you watch fashion livestreams and fashion films.

It also has a screen refresh rate of up to 120Hz (with a touch sampling rate of 240Hz) for a smooth experience. It has different modes that’s gentle on the eyes—the Sunlight mode 3.0, Reading mode 3.0, and True Display, so it can minimize eye strain. 

The tagline for Xiaomi 12 Lite is My Style, My Shot—which can pretty much be a fashionistas mantra when it comes to content. The phone not only looks good with its urban chic and trendy colors and shape, but its camera work can definitely enhance your style and content game. 

The Xiaomi 12 Lite will be available in-store and online on Lazada and Shopee starting August 27 for P20,999 for the 6GB + 128GB variant and 21,999 for the 6GB + 128GB variant. For more information visit
