The Mi 9 Lite features the best photography experience of the Mi 9 series including its amazing selfie camera.

Snap your story with 48MP AI triple camera + 32MP selfie camera

Designed for the Instagram generation, Mi 9 Lite sports a top-notch triple camera setup with 48MP flagship main lens and a large 1/2” sensor for super clear 48MP ultra-high resolution day shots. It also uses 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel to capture more light for bright night shots.

The 118° ultra wide-angle lens allows you to snap the full view of your surroundings. Mi 9 Lite intelligently detects when architectural or group shots are taken and recommends when users should switch to ultra wide-angle mode for a more optimal image. With built-in AI distortion correction enabled, the device also corrects image distortion automatically. It also features a depth-sensor that allows users to produce gorgeous portraits.

For an even more optimal photography experience, users can leverage the all-new AI Skyscaping feature which accurately detects the sky within the photo and can transform an overcast day to a bright sunny one or a breathtaking sunset. This innovation was made possible by Mi AI Lab which used deep learning to analyze more than 100,000 photos of the sky.

Mi 9 Lite’s front camera uses a 32MP flagship sensor and merges four pixels to form large 1.6μm pixels and ultimately capture more details in low-light conditions. The device’s front camera supports palm shutter, as well as panorama selfies, by merging three selfie photos in one to fit even more people in a group photo.


Dazzling flagship design with contemporary features

Mi 9 Lite comes in three trendy colors: Pearl White, Aurora Blue and Onyx Black. The devices leverage the exceptional manufacturing processes used to develop Mi 9, and maintain the same comfortable hand-feel with a curved Corning ® Gorilla ® Glass 5 back. The new series also makes use of Mi 9’s 6.39-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and 91% screen-to-body ratio.

The new series adopts a vertical logo and has a multi-colour LED light on its back cover. In addition to acting as a notification LED, the hue light also supports unique light effects and can pulse along to your favorite music.

The devices are equipped with in-screen fingerprint sensor technologies – with faster unlock speed and a higher recognition rate – as well as low-blue-light eye protection certification by Germany’s VDE Testing and Certification Institute. Mi 9 Lite also protects your eyes with Reading mode 2.0, and features hardware DC brightness control which reduces eye strain and ensures color retention, while eliminating flickering under a low-light environment.

Everything you need, nothing you don’t

Despite its slim design and weighing at 179g, Mi 9 Lite packs a high capacity 4030mAh battery combined with power-saving features to accommodate up to two days of regular usage. It supports 18W fast charge which can charge from zero to 43% in just 30 minutes, with the fast charge adapter included in-box. The device is equipped with multi-functional NFC, Hi-res audio, 3.5mm headphone jack, and an IR blaster.

Powered by the Snapdragon 710 mobile platform, Mi 9 Lite offers fast speed and excellent performance. The device even supports up to 256GB expandable SD storage to ensure you have enough storage space for your favorite snaps.
