Xiaomi launches the Mi 10 Youth Edition 5G, an affordable Mi 10 Pro for the masses starting under US$300
Months after unveiling the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Mi 10 Lite, Xiaomi is back with yet another Mi 10 series phone. The phone in question is the Mi 10 Youth Edition and is something of an affordable Mi 10 Pro for the masses.
The Mi 10 Youth Edition sports a 6.57-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. Sadly, Xiaomi chooses to keep high-refresh AMOLED displays exclusive to its more expensive offerings, leaving this phone with a 60 Hz display. It does get a 180 Hz touch sampling for better sensitivity. The display maxes out at 800 nits, and sports a waterdrop notch instead of the punch-hole on the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro.
Cameras are where the Mi 10 Youth Edition shines. It sports four rear cameras; a 48 MP main sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a macro lens for close-ups. The star of the show, however, is an OIS-equipped periscope lens capable of 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and 50x digital zoom. The selfie camera is a 16 MP sensor.
Under the hood is a Snapdragon 765G, which offers 5G connectivity. RAM maxes out at 8 GB, storage at 256 GB. They come in the form of LPDDR4X and UFS 2.1 respectively.
There's a 4160 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+ and UDB PD 3.0 support for fast charging. The included charging brick is a 22.5w one. The Mi 10 Youth Edition supports NFC, and offers an in-display fingerprint reader, an IR blaster, and thankfully, a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Mi 10 Youth Edition goes on sale on April 30 and pricing is as follows:
- 6/64GB: CNY 2,099 ($297)
- 6/128GB: CNY 2,299 ($325)
- 8/128GB: CNY 2,499 ($353)
- 8/256GB: CNY 2,799 ($395)
