At an event in China, Xiaomi introduced the MIUI 12 and also launched the Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition 5G smartphone. This is a new premium mid-range device and is already marketed in the West as Mi 10 Lite.
However, unlike its European sibling, the Mi 10 Youth gained some improvements, the main one being the addition of a 50x zoom periscope camera. In addition, we also find the presence of the Snapdragon 765G processor and support for the 5G.
Featuring the same design as the Mi 10 Lite, the new Mi 10 Youth Edition 5G offers four cameras at its rear allocated within a rectangular module in the upper corner. In addition, Xiaomi points out that the device’s body is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.
As we are talking about a 5G device, the Mi 10 Youth draws attention by weighing only 192 grams. The screen is a 6.57-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, 180 Hz sampling rate, HDR10+ support, and up to 800 nits of brightness.
In search of winning over the young audience, the new handset is sold in white, peach, blue, black, and mint green color options. In addition, there is also a special edition known as Doraemon. Check out the colors below:
