Yesterday, we exclusively reported the variants and colour options for the Mi 10 Youth Edition, Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi-series smartphone for China. The phone is expected to come in four variants, and a range of colours including Black, White Peach, Blueberry Mint, Milk Green and Peach Grapefruit. The Mi 10 Youth Edition is expected to be a toned down version of the Mi 10, and a China-specific variant of the Mi 10 Lite 5G that was launched in Europe last month. Xiaomi has now announced that the Mi 10 Youth Edition will be launched in China on April 27th, alongside an announcement detailing the key features of MIUI 12.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition launching in China on April 27th
The launch poster shared by Xiaomi on Weibo reveals that the Mi 10 Youth Edition will come in at least four colour options, which are in line with the colours we shared earlier. The smartphone sports a quad camera setup on the back, which will include a periscope camera with 50x zoom. It’s worth noting that the Mi 10 Lite 5G doesn’t offer this feature, so the Mi 10 Youth Edition could have a few differences in specs compared to its European counterpart. The phone will be unveiled at 2pm in China (11.30am IST)
Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition specifications and features
Barring the camera configuration, the remaining features of the Mi 10 Youth Edition are expected to be on par with the Mi 10 Lite 5G. As a result, we can expect it to be powered by the Snapdragon 765G chipset, and feature 5G connectivity. The phone will feature a 6.57-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch. Under the hood, we can expect a 4,160mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging. As per the information we got yesterday, it will be available in four variants – 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB. The Mi 10 Lite 5G features a 48MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide angle camera, 5MP macro camera and 2MP depth sensor. The Youth Edition will replace at least one of these cameras with a telephoto lens. It’s unclear if the remaining configuration will also change. The front camera is expected to be a 16MP unit.
