Following a few weeks of rumors and teasers, the new Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition has finally been presented today. As expected, the smartphone is nothing but the Chinese version of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite globally announced a few weeks ago, but with some interesting differences; let's find out more!
Xiaomi Mi 10 Official Youth Edition with 50X super zoom and much more
Let's start with the display that remains the same as the Mi 10 Lite. So we find a panel from 6,57 inches diagonal, AMOLED and with Full HD + resolution (2400 x 1080). The display is also of high quality with a Delta E value of 1,1 and JNCD of <0,7, so very accurate colors, contrast of 4.300.000: 1 and brightness of 600 nits. The screen will then have support for the HDR10 + standard, DC dimming technology to decrease screen flicker when set to low brightness, and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz (although the screen frequency is unfortunately limited to 60Hz and not 90Hz. ).
But let's move on to the strength of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition, or the photographic sector. The smartphone in fact sees an upgrade of the depth sensor of the Mi 10 Lite which is now being replaced by an 8MP camera with a maximum zoom of 50x. This camera uses a periscope lens to achieve a 5x optical zoom, while the rest is done digitally. Furthermore, to reduce the vibrations due to the high focal length, the lens adopts an OIS optical stabilization, even if this seems to be only in the horizontal plane.
Together with the 50X zoom camera we then have a primary one with 48MP resolution, focal aperture of f / 1.79, 1/2 ″ size and Pixel Binning technology to combine several pixels and obtain better results in low light conditions. The third sensor has 8MP resolution and is coupled with an ultra wide lens (120 degrees), finally the fourth would serve to take macro photos with 5MP resolution. In general, we have a real focal length that varies from 15mm to 122mm. For selfies, however, there is a 16MP front camera.
In addition to the excellent hardware, Xiaomi has also equipped the Mi 10 Youth Edition with equally interesting software. In fact, we find a feature called "AI Magic Camera" which allows us to add video effects such as kaleidoscope, look-alike, replacement of the sky with 12 filters and creation of custom avatars.
As for performance, like its alter ego global, the Chinese one also equips a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G as processor, accompanied by an excellent cooling system to keep temperatures low even during long gaming sessions. The chipset also supports dual mode 5G connectivity, therefore both SA and NSA networks, and is supported by four antennas instead of two to improve signal reception by about 30%. While for the amount of memory, we have 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X type RAM and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of UFS 2.1 internal memory.
From the autonomy point of view, on the Mi 10 Youth Edition we find the same battery as the Mi 10 Lite, therefore a capacity of 4160mAh, with support for fast charging at 20W (also a 22,5W charger is given in the package). Other features include an NFC module, a fingerprint sensor on the screen, a 3,5mm audio jack and an infrared ray emitter.
Finally, the smartphone is available in 5 colors: Black Skill Storm, Blueberry mint, Peach grapefruit, Four Seasons Spring Milk Green and White Peach.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition will go on sale in China on April 30 with a starting price of 2099 Yuan (270 €) for the version with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, 2299 Yuan (300 €) for 6GB and 128GB, 2499 Yuan (325 €) for 8GB and 126GB and finally 2799 Yuan (365 €) for the variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory.
