Calling Xiaomi as a trendsetter brand wouldn’t wrong, thanks to its upcoming Mi 10 Lite 5G smartphone, which is said to be an affordable 5G-enabled smartphone in the world. We have seen that getting hands-on a 5G-enabled smartphone means buying something expensive but now things appear to be changed.
Mi 10 Lite 5G has been confirmed by Xiaomi as the most affordable smartphone that comes with state-of-the-art features and a waterdrop-like display notch. However, it’s very much unlike its siblings Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, which are loaded with a punch-hole display design.
Not only an eye-catching design and waterdrop notch but Mi 10 Lite 5G will also be equipped with a gradient-finish back panel to appeal users.
The key highlights of Mi 10 5G are related to its Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G Chipset, up to 8GB of RAM, 6.57-inches bright and shiny display, 4160mAh battery and quad-camera configuration outback. Let’s keep going to see what else does it bring on paper.
Release Date and Price
The company has not yet announced an official Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G release date but it’s likely to start arriving on stores somewhere in May 2020. It’ll arrive in European markets first and later in Canada, India, Australia, and New Zealand.
Xiaomi will announce Mi 10 Lite in three distinct colour options to choose from – White, Blue, and Black.
The official Mi 10 Lite 5G Price in Europe is set at Euro 349 which after conversion comes to around $389/AU$632/£312.
Aside from Mi 10 Lite 5G, Xiaomi has launched its siblings named Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in Europe. According to reports, Xiaomi Mi 10 has been priced Euro 799 (~ $892/AU$1447/£716) for its 8GB/128GB variant whereas 8GB/256GB variant set users back Euro 899 (~ $1000/AU$1628/£807).
Talking about Mi 10 Pro Price in Europe, it’s priced Euro 999 ~ ($1115/AU$1809/£879) for its 8GB + 256GB variant.
As far as Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro availability in China is concerned, both devices were revealed in China back in February with a starting price tag of CNY 3999.
The Mi 10 was all set to be launched officially on March 31th but unfortunately, we will have to face a little delay in the launch – thanks to the nationwide lockdown due to Coronavirus.
