Rumors are swirling around Xiaomi’s move to launch Xiaomi 14 Lite which is potentially a rebranded Civi 4. This upcoming smartphone is soon making its way to the Indian market. In this article, let’s dive into discussing the upcoming Xiaomi 14 Lite in more detail. 

Xiaomi 14 Lite Overview

The device, identified by the model number 24053PY09I, has recently surfaced in the database of India’s BIS authority. This model number bears a striking resemblance to the CMIIT-certified 24053PY09C phone, believed to be the Civi 4. Hence, speculation is rife that Xiaomi might be gearing up to launch a variant of the Civi 4 tailored specifically for Indian consumers.

Drawing from past experiences, where Xiaomi released tweaked versions of its phones under different names for different markets, industry experts are predicting a similar strategy for the Indian release. For instance, the Xiaomi Civi 2 underwent modifications and hit the global market as the Xiaomi 13 Lite. Consequently, it’s plausible that the Civi 4 could undergo rebranding or slight modifications, potentially launching in India under the Xiaomi 14 Lite banner.

Display and Design

If the rumors hold true, the Xiaomi 14 is expected to come packed with a slew of enticing features and top-notch specifications. Notable among these is its curved-edge OLED display, boasting a stunning 1.5K resolution and a buttery-smooth 120Hz refresh rate.

Other noteworthy features include an in-display fingerprint sensor for added security, NFC for contactless payments, IP68 water and dust resistance rating, and the latest Android 14 operating system out of the box.


The Xiaomi 14 Lite is rumored to sport a sophisticated Leica-engineered main camera setup on its rear. With a hefty 50-megapixel sensor with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) support, this device is primed to capture stunning photographs with remarkable clarity and detail. Furthermore, the Civi 4 is said to feature a dual front-facing camera setup complete with LED flash. 


In terms of performance, the Xiaomi 14 Lite is expected to be a powerhouse. Equipped with the latest Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 processor, LPDDR5x RAM, and UFS 4.0 storage, users can expect blazing-fast speeds and seamless multitasking capabilities.
