Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite
Xiaomi showed the Mi 10T Lite to the general public at an online launch event. That is the cheaper alternative to the new Mi 10T and the Mi 10 T Pro. The phone comes with an equally large 6.67-inch screen compared to the other Mi 10T devices.
Screen and housing
The LCD panel also has a Full HD resolution of 2400 by 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Xiaomi also offers two software functions: Sunlight 3.0 and Reading Mode 3.0. The former improves the contrast of the colors when used outdoors, and the other is a special reading mode. The screen also comes with a brightness of 450 nits, a blue light filter and support for HD10 video content.
If we then look at the case, we see that the frame is made of plastic, but the back is made of glass and it is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 just like the screen. On the side of the phone is the fingerprint scanner that is woven into the power button.
Performance, battery and software
In terms of performance, Xiaomi comes with a first. This phone is the first to use the Snapdragon 750G , which is Qualcomm’s new chipset that introduces a fast 5G connection and download speeds of up to 3.7 Gbps to mid-range phones. The 5G connection that this chipset makes possible is just as fast as that of the Snapdragon 765. The Mi 10T also comes in two models: with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage or the same amount of RAM and 128 GB storage.
In addition, there is the 4820 mAh battery, and although that capacity is smaller compared to the Mi 10T, it does come with the same 33-watt charger. Xiaomi is also equipping the new smartphone with its own MIUI 12 software shell based on Android 10.
On the back, Xiaomi has placed four camera sensors on the sin camera island of the Mi 10T Lite. The main camera is the 64 Mp main camera, which is the same as with the regular Mi 10T. There is also an 8 MP wide-angle camera, a 5 MP macro camera and a 2 MP depth camera. At the front is another 16 MP selfie camera.
Xiaomi’s Mi 10T Lite is available from us in the Cosmic Gray color, or the gray variant. The phone comes in a model with 6 GB / 64 GB and one with 6 GB / 128 GB. The first variant is for sale for 279 euros and the other you have from 329 euros. The phone will appear in stores from November.
