Yesterday, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition discussion thread was unearthed on Mi Community China. Now, earlier today, the company officially announced its launch to take place on April 27 alongside MIUI 12. Followed by that, the brand has now shared a new teaser render of the handset on Weibo.
The upcoming Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition will be different than the global Mi 10 Lite 5G. As per the new detailed render posted by Xiaomi on Weibo, the new handset will feature a periscope camera with up to 50x zoom capability, which is not present on the original lite device launched in Europe last month.

The details of the other sensors of the phone’s quad-camera setup are scarce at the moment. Probably, it will come equipped with the same 48MP primary sensor and a similar 8MP ultra-wide unit. Unfortunately, we are not sure whether the 5MP macro camera or the 2MP depth sensor will return from the global Mi 10 Lite 5G.
Apart from the new camera configuration, we expect the Mi 10 Youth Edition to feature similar specs as its global counterpart. That means it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 paired with up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage. It will have support for 5G connectivity on both SA (standalone) and NSA (non-standalone) 5G networks in the country.
Further, the phone will come fitted with a 6.57-inches AMOLED display with an in-screen fingerprint reader and a dew-drop notch housing a 16MP selfie camera if the company does not swap it with a different sensor. The handset will receive its juice from a 4,160 mAh battery with support for 22.5W fast charging according to a recent leak. The device will measure 7.98mm in thickness and will weigh 192 grams.
Going by the official render, the Mi 10 Youth Editon will be available in four colours in China. The first one will be a fusion of white and purple gradient, the second, third, and fourth versions will be emerald, peach, and blue respectively.
