As announced by the Chinese manufacturer last week, the Mi 10 family already has a new member. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition It is already official, with a new camera in periscope format with which it promises a digital zoom of up to 50x, in the line of other manufacturers in a totally different price range.
After the Mi 10 standard with a much higher price than the usual standard in the brand or a Mi 10 Pro that goes even further, Xiaomi unveiled a somewhat more modest Mi 10 Lite, with characteristics quite similar to this Mi 10 Youth Edition . Among them is, of course, and in 2020, the 5G connectivity.
Mi 10 Youth Edition: hugging the zoom periscope
The Mi 10 Youth Edition is, like almost all current mobiles, a device with a big screen. This incorporates a 6.6-inch Amoled panel that, although it does not add the high refresh rates of the most advanced terminals, it does retain certain metrics that are focused on a great experience. These are a great focus on calibration, maximum brightness that the brand promises, will reach 800 nits of brightness and touch sampling up to 180 Hz.
Inside we will find a Snapdragon 765G processor, the second from Qualcomm for 2020. Although it has more modern features, it retains certain power and technologies of this generation and high-end, and includes Integrated 5G connectivity on the chip itself. This, unlike the Snapdragon 865, allows it to be both cheaper and more efficient.
And is that the Snapdragon 765G has an advanced manufacturing process in 7 nm, so its energy consumption will be lower than many of the chips of the competition or the brand itself. It also has 5G connectivity for both NSA –Non Standalone– and SA –Standalone, more modern–, although only on Sub-6 frequencies.
But the great novelty of this terminal is undoubtedly its camera, in addition to a main 48 MP sensor, which will probably be the Sony IMX 586 that we see in a multitude of ranges, from economic to not so much, a more modest wide angle and not specified and probably a dispensable macro sensor, Xiaomi gets on the bandwagon of zoom telephones in periscope format.
This design allows, thanks to its internal mirror, to take advantage of a greater space inside the terminal to place a 5x optical zoom. This, combined with the digital magnification, will provide a maximum of up to “50x zoom” that the brand advertises, although it is common for these magnifications to have very limited detail. Therefore, we can expect a zoom of up to 10x with relatively decent results.
Finally, the Mi 10 Youth Edition incorporates, along with a relatively thin design and about 7.9 millimeters thick, an average battery, with its 4,160 mAh. The fast charging system, although it is expected to incorporate it, has not been specified.
