Xiaomi launched the Mi 10 series of flagship smartphones consisting of Mi 10 5G and Mi 10 Pro 5G in mid-February in China. The handsets then made their way to the European market in late March with a new member called Mi 10 Lite 5G. Now, it seems this device will also launch in the company’s home country as the Mi 10 Youth Edition.
According to IT Home, the Mi Community in China has opened a new discussion thread for ‘Mi 10 Youth Edition’. This clearly indicates the newest version of Mi 10 to soon debut in China. When it does, it will be the second Snapdragon 765-powered smartphone from the house of Xiaomi, the first one being Redmi K30 5G, which just recently received a price cut.
The Mi 10 Lite or Youth Edition (China) comes equipped with a 6.57-inches FHD+ AMOLED panel with an in-display fingerprint sensor. On the back, the phone also features a quad-camera setup in a matrix array at the top left corner. The setup includes a 48MP primary sensor paired with an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP macro unit, and a 2MP depth sensor. Whereas, the front camera is of 16 megapixels which sit comfortably in the dew-drop notch at the top center of the display.
The new Xiaomi device weighs 192 grams and measures 7.98mm in thickness with a 4,160 mAh battery powering it. The phone runs MIUI 11 based on Android 10 and is available in three colour options namely Blue, Black, and White respectively. The handset comes in the two storage configurations – 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 128GB and starts at €349.
Anyway, the Mi 10 Youth Edition may cost lesser in China and may even have a different storage configuration to further lower the price just like what OnePlus did with the OnePlus 8 series price in India.
