Updated | Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite possible candidate for upcoming sub-€300 (US$355) smartphone with 5G and a 108 MP main camera sensor
Update September 19: The Mi 10T Lite name has been confirmed in FCC documentation. A global variant is expected to have a 64 MP main camera while a Chinese model should come with a 108 MP sensor.
There has been plenty of news about the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro lately, and it seems more than possible that the Chinese OEM also has a Mi 10T Lite to reveal at some point. Noted tipster Digital Chat Station revealed Chinese 5G certification that indicated a Xiaomi smartphone with the model number M2007J17C is coming. This was linked with the already known Gauguin model, and now this has been taken a step further with the mention of a Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite smartphone.
At the beginning of September, Xiaomi Spain teased a new device was coming to the Mi 10 series that would be a 5G smartphone for “€2XX”. This mysterious phone would be powered by a Snapdragon Series 7 SoC (possibly the 768G chip) and, depending on the report you believe, sport either a 64 MP sensor or even a 108 MP sensor. This latest Mi 10 smartphone is scheduled to be launched in September.
Regardless of whether this Gauguin phone ends up being labeled the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite, it appears the Chinese OEM has gone partially back to its roots by planning on releasing an affordable 5G device that should offer more than you would normally expect at the price range it will occupy. Additional reports have suggested the same smartphone could end up being sold under the Redmi brand in China, possibly even as the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
