Xiaomi has quoted us today to confirm the price and availability of its new flagship, the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro . But at the beginning of the event, they said that there would not be two mobiles, but three, and the company has not failed in its promise. Thus, the Chinese company has made official the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G , a mid-range terminal that, as its name suggests, has 5G connectivity.
The most striking feature of the terminal, in addition to its design and photographic module, is the base price: 349 euros. It is configured as one of the most affordable 5G mobiles on the market . This connectivity is possible thanks to its processor, the Snapdragon 765G , which has the integrated Snapdragon X52 modem. Let’s get to know him better.

Fingerprint reader under a screen with notch
We start as always reviewing the aesthetic section. The terminal has a slightly curved handle on the sides, something that theoretically should improve grip. In it we find the module with the four cameras, and it is that instead of being arranged in a vertical format as in the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, Xiaomi has chosen to use a rectangular module.
The fingerprint reader, of course, has moved under the screen. And now that we talk about the screen, note that the panel is a 6.57-inch AMOLED with FullHD + resolution . If in the high-end Xiaomi has opted for a perforation in the panel, in this model the internal camera has been hidden in the notch shaped like a drop in the upper area.
Qualcomm’s 5G processor under the hood
So we go on to talk about the engine. Under the hood of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G we find 6 GB of LPDDR4x RAM along with 64 or 128 GB of internal UFS 2.1 storage , as well as the Snapdragon 765G processor. This processor is one of the latest Qualcomm releases and has the built-in Snapragon X52 modem, making it compatible with current and future 5G NSA and SA networks.
How could it be otherwise, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G has Android 10 with MIUI 11 , the signature customization layer already known to all. It is powered by a 4,160 mAh battery with 20W fast charge that leaves the terminal 7.98 mm thick and 192 grams in weight.
As for the cameras, Xiaomi at the moment has not revealed the entire configuration of sensors. It has simply revealed that the main sensor will be 48 megapixels and that the front will be 16 megapixels. Since it uses Pixel Binning technology, the effective photos with the rear camera will be 12 megapixels.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G will be available from June 2020 at a price that will depend on the amount of internal storage that we want. Colors will be white, black and blue, all three holographic.
