mi 10 youth edition 5G

Xiaomi had launched its Mi 10 series just last month. The series included three devices, namely- Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Mi 10 Lite. And today, with the launch of Mi 10 Youth Edition, Xiaomi has expanded the Mi 10 series. Before its launch, speculation was that the Mi 10 Youth Edition will just be a rebranded Mi 10 Lite that is available in Europe. However, there are some differences between this device and the Lite version. Let’s know more about the Xiaomi Mi Youth Edition along with its specs, price, and availability in Nepal. 

Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition 5G Overview

The device has a 6.57-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. The refresh rate is akin to that of the Mi 10 Lite. That means it too has a 60Hz display. It certainly would have been great had they upped it to 90Hz, but nevertheless, it’s still decent. However, they have a sort of compensated for it by offering a 180Hz touch sampling rate. Moreover, the screen does not have a punch-hole cutout. Rather, it has the more common waterdrop notch. The notch houses a 16MP selfie shooter.

This device will probably be one of the most affordable 5G smartphones. And to serve its purpose, it uses the Snapdragon 765G under the hood. As for the RAM option, one can choose between either 6GB or 8GB LPDD4X RAM. The storage options are 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Furthermore, the device is powered by a huge 4160mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+ and UDB PD 3.1. Now, we’d hoped that the device will be the first one to launch with the new MIUI 12. Sadly, that isn’t the case as it still uses the MIUI 11 skin. However, users will be able to upgrade it to MIUI 12.
