Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition launched as global version of Mi 10 Youth
We don’t always see a Lite variant besting the Pro variant, but Xiaomi decided to do just that for the Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition. Sure most of the specifications are not as great as the Mi 10 Pro, but the telephoto camera which gives the Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition its name, is quite far ahead of its other brethren sharing the Mi 10 name. If the design seems familiar, well that’s because it has been launched earlier in China as the Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth.
This is the first Xiaomi device to feature a periscope telephoto camera, with an 8MP sensor behind the 5x optical zoom lens. This allows the Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition to offer 10x hybrid zoom and a good 50x digital zoom. The rest of the camera hardware aren’t as impressive though, with a 48MP f/1.79 main camera, a 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle shooter and a dedicated 2MP macro camera rounding off the quad-camera setup on the back.
Aside from the camera, most of the Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition is similar with the previously launched Mi 10 Lite. That includes a Snapdragon 765G chipset along with up to 8GB RAM, although you can get the Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition with up to 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage. There’s a heatpipe+graphene+graphite cooling system to keep all the components in the Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition cool.
Up front you get a 6.57″ FHD+ AMOLED display that boasts of the same 180 Hz touch sampling rate as its more premium siblings. A 16MP selfie camera sits in a tiny dewdrop notch, which doesn’t look nearly as modern as its pricier brethren. And last but not least, a 4160 mAh battery is crammed into the slim 7.88mm chassis, with support for 20W fast charging.
