Aside from its 50MP main camera it will also come with a 12MP f/2.2 ultrawide and a 10MP f/2.0 telephoto at the back and a 32MP f/2.0 front-facing camera.
The Xiaomi 13 Lite, on the other hand, arrives with a 6.55-inch 2400 x 1080 120Hz AMOLED screen, an 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide, and a 2MP f/2.4 macro. Selfies can be taken with a 32MP f/2.4 front-facing camera.
