Xiaomi 13 Lite IMEI Database Listing Tips It is A Rebranded Xiaomi Civi 2

The Xiaomi Civi 2 was launched last month in China.


Xiaomi is expected to launch the Xiaomi 13 series in the coming months. If we go by the launch timelines of the last two iterations, the Xiaomi 13 series could go official by the end of 2022. The Xiaomi 13 series will consist of multiple devices and the Xiaomi 13 Lite is expected to be the cheapest among all Xiaomi 13 series devices. In the latest development, the upcoming Xiaomi 13 Lite has been spotted on the IMEI database, courtesy of Pricebaba.

The upcoming Xiaomi 13 Lite made an appearance on the IMEI database with model number 2210129SG (G represents the global variant). Going by the model number, it appears that the Xiaomi 13 Lite will be a rebranded Xiaomi Civi 2. To those unaware, the Xiaomi Civi 2 made its debut last month in China and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 processor. The Xiaomi Civi series smartphones usually remain exclusive to China but it seems like the Civi 2 will be an exception.

Xiaomi has been launching mid-range Lite series smartphones for the last 4-5 years. With the last couple of iterations of the Lite series devices, the company has been focusing the most on design. Xiaomi, last year, introduced the Civi lineup in China which also has design as its USP. So, it makes sense for the company to launch the Civi series of smartphones under the Lite lineup in global markets and vice versa. Let us take a quick recap of Xiaomi Civi 2 specifications and features.
