Xiaomi has launched yet another budget-friendly smartphone. On 27th April 2020, the Chinese company announced the Mi 10 Youth 5G. After the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, this is the latest smartphone that supports 5G connectivity. Although initially, the device would be available in Chinese markets itself, Xiaomi might launch a global version of the smartphone soon.
Finally, 5G is not harmful to our pockets!
There are several different 5G implementations in the market. Most of them come with a premium price tag. Be it Oneplus 8 series, or be it Motorola Edge, that we talked about previously. The Snapdragon 865 and 765G are the chips that come with a 5G modem integrated. While the former gives power to the top tier flagship devices, the later might cut some slag in terms of cost.
Physical features – the device looks good
The Mi Youth 5G Phone comes with a 6.57”(Full HD+) AMOLED display. It not only means that the color production would be good, but we also get an in-display fingerprint sensor. The touch sampling rate is 180Hz, but there are no fancy refresh rate counts. The screen is a standard 60Hz display.
Snapdragon 765 is a powerful chipset!
The smartphone ships with Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, which supports dual-band 5G. There are plenty of options available in terms of RAM(LPDDR4X) and internal storage(UFS 2.1). The company also advertises liquid cooling. The device gets its juice from a 4160 mAh battery that is enough to get you through your day. The device also supports a 22.5W fast charge via the USC-C port.
An all-in-one package deal: The camera is nuts on this one
Lets me make things more interesting for you. The rear panel of the device houses a quad camera setup. The primary lens is a 48MP shooter, an 8MP ultrawide lens, an 8MP telephoto lens, and a macro lens. The periscope mechanism enables you to zoom in; 5x optical and up to 50x hybrid zoom. The front camera is a standard 16MP shooter that sits in a U-shaped notch.
Pricing is pretty aggressive
You get NFC and your favorite headphone jack. To make this deal even more irresistible, the device starts at 22500INR for the 6/64GB variant. Other variants are; 6/128GB, 8/128GB, 8/256GB, and the price varies accordingly. There is a sharp jump of around 2500INR for each model. The device is available in some exciting colors; White, Peach, Blue, Black, and Mint Green.
The times when 5G phones use to cost a fortune are past us. Companies are coming up with affordable solutions to customer needs. Xiaomi has been good with that for a long time now. Their devices are developed, keeping in mind the value-for-money aspect. And that is the reason for their success.
