The existence of a new Mi 10 variant, the "Lite Zoom" was inadvertently leaked by none other than Qualcomm not long ago. Now, a new tip asserts that it is headed for a European launch shortly. It may be revealed as an international Mi 10 Youth Edition at such an event.

Qualcomm accidentally spilled some details on the heretofore-unknown Mi 10 Lite Zoom at the end of April 2020, touting it as a Snapdragon 765G-powered and Quick Charge 3+ enabled phone. These specs strongly suggest that it is in fact an international version of the Mi 10 Youth Edition that is sold in China.

This phone sets itself apart from a second mid-range Mi 10 variant, the Lite, in that it has an 8MP periscope lens with a 5X optical and a 10X hybrid zoom. It also retains a 48MP main shooter and has an improved 120-degree ultrawide sensor. The Lite Zoom may also now have a European launch lined up.

The appropriately heavily OEM-themed leaker Xiaomishka now claims that this phone is indeed headed for this new market later this month. It also apparently has the model number M2002J9E, along with its own code-name (vangogh).

The Mi 10 Youth Edition started at 2099 yuan (~US$297) for a 6GB RAM/64GB storage base model, and went up to just 2799 yuan (~$396) for a 8/256GB top-end SKU; however, there is no guarantee these prices will remain constant should it really go on sale in a more westerly market soon.
