At the MWC event slated for Feb 27th, Xiaomi will debut the globally awaited MI 13 lineup. Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro will likely become official alongside Xiaomi 13 Lite, a low-cost model. The Chinese market has already received the first two devices, and we know everything about them. However, the third one continues to exist in rumors. 

In the latest break, we discovered that the oncoming Xiaomi 13 Lite is just a rebranded version of Xiaomi CIVI 2 (launched in September 2022), thanks to a popular leak source, Sudhanshu Ambhore. The tipster not only gave away the model's specs but also showcased it inside out in a live unboxing video.

The video preview puts all our suspicions to rest, confirming once and for all that 13 Lite is a rebranded CIVI 2. The short clip reveals accessories inside the box and the model's in-hand preview. Have a look.

The package includes the device, a starting guide, a 67W charging brick, a TPU case, and a type C cable. Specs-wise, users will find 13 Lite's front spanned by a 6.55-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen.
