Xiaomi has released the Xiaomi Mi 10 lineup globally, and with it, it has also introduced a new edition: the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G. The phone falls squarely into the mid-range price bracket, which makes it another welcome addition to this year’s affordable 5G smartphone list.

As opposed to the punch-hole design that its more premium siblings feature, the Mi 10 Lite is built around a 6.57-inch AMOLED panel with a waterdrop notch that stretches into it. The front camera has a 16MP sensor behind it, and the screen embeds an in-display optical fingerprint scanner. Xiaomi has yet to reveal the screen refresh rate or the resolution, but if those specs are carried over from the high-end editions, the screen will deliver an FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate.

Flip it over, and you’ll find a quad-camera ensemble in the top-left corner. The four lenses are symmetrical and identical-looking – the primary of which is a 48MP shooter. The details for the remaining three cameras aren’t known yet.

Still, based on an educated guess, Xiaomi could have combined it with a wide-angle camera, a telephoto lens, and either a macro or depth-assist sensor.

The ’Lite’ variant is powered by a Snapdragon 765G chipset, augmented with LiquidCool technology to drain the heat away. As per the official sources, the platform is combined with 64GB and 128GB storage options. The memory variants are yet to be shared, but the hardware runs on a 4,160 mAh battery with support for 20W fast charging.

The phone comes in White, Gray, and Blue-to-Green gradient colors, and it’ll hit stores in Europe in May, and will start from $350 which converts to some 57,000 Pakistani rupees without taxes.
